Bengaluru: Mass fish death at Doddakallasandra lake 3.5.2017
BENGALURU: In a striking resemblance to the mass fish death episode at Ulsoor Lake last year, hundreds of fishes surfaced on Doddakallasandra Lake near Konanakunte on Monday afternoon. The foul smell from the decaying fishes has become a worry for nearby residents. The residents of the region allege that untreated sewage and industrial effluents were the main reasons for this. "A sand bank separates the lake from stormwater drain carrying untreated sewage water and industrial effluents. The heavy downpour on Monday has inundated the sand bank, which led to mixing of untreated sewage and industrial effluents with the lake water. This could be the possible reason for the mass death of fishes" said Raghu, a resident of Konanakunte Cross. He lambasted officials who take money and turn a blind eye towards untreated industrial effluents entering the lakes. The BDA has completely failed to maintain the lake and to curb the inflow of the sewerage into the lake. They have not even attended to clear the dead fish ...

Nature walk with Sages an attraction 3.5.2017 The Tribune
Shriniwas Joshi SAGES (Shimla Amateur Garden and Environment Society) conducts two nature walks in a year – the one in summer covers upper hills and the other in autumn, the down hills. Both have great attraction. When Facebook friends exchange the photographs of the ‘walk’, those friends repent who could not make it due to lethargy and lassitude. Their common expressions are: ‘Feeling bad. We wish we were there.’ They say that they will gird up their loins for the next such event but then, at the ripe time, they get enveloped in the words of Wordsworth “The world is too much with us; late and soon/Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers; / Little we see in Nature that is ours.” SAGES always invite children of schools for the nature walk and acquaint them with the flora and fauna of the area and tell them about the folkways associated with the area. The students of a public and a government school assembled at Mundaghat (see photo) from where we started our foot journey. Why is it called ...
