Why don't parks usetreated water, bbmp? 25.4.2019
Rainwater harvesting plants for individual homes, mandatory STPs and compost plants in apartment complexes - BBMP excels at telling people what to do. Rarely does it follow its own advice, though. The city"s parks are drying up, a normal occurence this time of year but BBMP has done little to find a permanent solution. Instead of following its own rules and setting up rainwater harvesting or sewage treatment plants, BBMP buys water from private tankers to water its parks! And it"s a drain on taxpayer money. Has BBMP actually managed to find a solution that is worse than the problem, asks Aknisree Karthik Fortunately for Bengaluru, it has not entirely lost its Garden City reputation thanks to the many parks that still dot it.

But on the other hand, while the city is ...

Chennai: Six die inhaling poisonous gas in Sriperumbudur septic tank tragedy 27.3.2019
Chennai: At least six men, including three from the same family and a Good Samaritan who rushed to their help, died inhaling poisonous gas from a septic tank in a house at Sriperumbudur near Chennai on Tuesday, sending shock waves across the state.   Police gave the names of the deceased as Krishnamoorthy, the house owner, his two sons Kannan, 28, and Karthik, 25, two of the landlord's tenants, Suradhabhai, 28 and Paramasivam, 32, besides a 22-year-old youth, Lakshmikanthan who was delivering gas cylinders in that locality. All fell like ninepins, one after another, in a serial tragedy hardly witnessed in recent days, to the noxious gas emanating from the tank, starting with the family head Krishnamoorthy who first got inside to apparently round off the cleaning to perfection after a sewage tanker had initially emptied the septic tank in his house. While the family lived on one of the floors, Krishnamoorthy had let the other portions in the building to other families for rent. Since this part of ...
