Transparency, coordination among various civic agencies, transportation, water security, lakes and garbage-related issues dominated the first meeting of the Bengaluru Vision Group chaired by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday. After a power-point presentation by Additional Chief Secretary Mahendra Jain about various projects taken up by the government and its many agencies, Wipro chairman Azim Premji pointed out the plight of commuters in a city which generates 45% of Karnatakas GDP.

I was shocked at this rapid deterioration of Bangalores local climate," says Aarti Mohan, co-founder and head of Knowledge at Sattva. Liza Rego, a professional, adds, "I come from a perpetually hot and humid place so Bengaluru was like a dream come true. However, in the last couple of years, the weather has become increasingly unpleasant and unpredictable. The speed with which the temperatures keep fluctuating is definitely taking a toll on my health."The signs are visible and ominous. The fish kill in Ulsoor Lake, for example. Though a number of factors contributed to this phenomenon, unprecedented high temperatures played a major part in promoting the reduction of dissolved oxygen levels in the water, which led ...
