Hasiru-Usiru and BBMP clash over roadwidening 5.11.2008 Citizen Matters

Hasiru Usiru (HU), a group of citizens concerned on green issues at Bangalore, has been trying to get the BBMP to involve its nominated members to be part of the decision-making process. This, especially after the High Court of Karnataka handed down a decision to the effect that BBMP should not take any developmental steps without clearance from an empowered committee which was setup as part of a litigation initiated by Hasiru Usiru.

So far, its efforts have been fruitless, and HU members have been deeply concerned to see the ongoing felling of trees for widening several roads in the…

Why I am participating in the Namma Raste, Namma Ooru Walk 4.11.2008 Citizen Matters

With regard to the tree-felling and road-widening that is happening now.....we are against *indiscriminate* use of this facility, that's all.

“You know you’re in Bangalore, you know you’re in the Silicon Valley of India, when you go to play golf and the caddy on the first tee says you can either aim at the Microsoft building or the IBM building. You know you’re in Bangalore when you see the Pizza Hut advertisement says ‘gigabytes of taste’,” famously said the US journalist Thomas Friedman in 2004. Ever since, reams have been written on outsourcing, the software boom and the rise of the uber-smart, uber-rich new technogeeks of Bangalore.

But whatever happened to the other Bangalores, the ones that shun the…

Nandi Hills breathe easy 28.8.2008 Citizen Matters

It was an initiative that was long overdue; Nandi Hills, a scenic spot, was slowly being overrun by plastic trash thrown carelessly by visitors. Several civic-minded citizens got together and decided that instead of just complaining about the plastic litter, they would take positive action to clean up the trash, and more importantly, try to raise the awareness among tourists about the importance of keeping this beautiful place clean.

Yahoo, the sponsor for the event, has an internal team called ‘Purple Green’ 6 7 mths... (‘purple’ being the Yahoo corporate colour, and ‘green’ referring to the environment). So…

Exorbitant rent in Kalakshetra

Exorbitant rent for Ravindra Kalakshetra is making Yakshagana performance (a folk art from coastal Karnataka) difficult now.

Yakshagana lovers urge to lower rent in the interest of safeguarding a folk art (Udayavani, Monday, 30 June)
