Resurrecting Kempegowda to right a wrong 21.11.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru is bleeding with repeated and brazen assaults by the land mafia even as authorities bear mute witness. A don, a minister and their henchmen try to grab the Kempambudhi lake bed for a casino. They hoodwink a group of conscientious citizens, getting the granddaughter of a respected builder in the group to ink an agreement to build the casino. Their cause is helped by her feud with a "coolie" who has her familys backing. Things come to a head and the bad guys are about to break ground on the lake bed when lo! a sword lands amidst them, spoiling their plan. What follows is annihilation of a goodly portion of Bengaluru's underworld, striking fear in the hearts of the BDA commissioner, the BBMP members and even Kelly Dorjee, who looks more menacing than other recent villain imports. And yes, there's also the meeting between the coolie and Nadaprabhu Kempegowda himself, the Rebel Star looking every inch this city's founder a little past his prime. Kudos to Chinthan and Sukhadhare for the "novel" plot ...

More than 200 water bodies on the course of River Arkavathi have been rejuvenated, in the first-ever project undertaken by the State to revive a river. The Cauvery Neeravari Nigam (CNN), in the past two years, has removed encroachments, desilted and constructed canals along the river, completing close to 80 per cent of the work along the 1,300-km stretch. The work has been carried out at a cost of Rs 22.43 crore, and new canals have been constructed for nearly 980 km. In the past 20 years, the Arkavathi river course had seen tremendous changes in terrain, with absolutely no efforts to conserve the river or its tributaries. A CNN official said that around 70 per cent of the river course had been converted into agriculture land and layouts. The official added that though rocky surface posed problems while desilting, they managed to retain the trees, along the newly laid canals. After the rejuvenation work, hundreds of tanks upstream Hesaraghatta lake have got filled and the water level in the lake has ...
