Sudden rain hassles outbound travellers 28.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The sudden rainfall on Friday night inconvenienced many people heading out of town on a long weekend. While some parts of the city received rainfall after 9 pm, other localities were greeted with strong winds.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast rain coupled with thundershowers for the next two days. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) said there were no rain-related complaints.

The rainfall, however, led to power cuts in Banaswadi, Magadi Road and parts of Bannerghatta Road.
Pedestrians on roads being upgraded under the TenderSURE project were the worst sufferers. Outbound travellers were seen running to escape the rainfall in Majestic, KR Market and other bus terminals.

Disaster-related news is one of the big sources for initiating a discussion. Earthquakes which occur suddenly have a priority over volcanoes, which give some indications of an eruption.

Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off. Muralidharan S ****************************************************************************** Hotels pump sewage into drain Four hotels are located between Hope Farm, Whitefield, and Prashanth Layout. All of them discharge sewage into an open drain closeby. One of the establishments, Adyar Anand Bhavan, openly pumps sewage water into the open drain using a high-power pump during the day.

Courting the green 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Saturday
With another World Earth Day falling today, the need to conserve the city's depleting green cover is only reiterated. The theme this year is environmental and climate literacy. The many campaigns that one sees in Bengaluru, in an effort to protect and preserve the green cover, is proof that people still care and want to do their bit to conserve the environment. Efforts are being undertaken by many small groups to clean the city by painting its walls so that people don't dump garbage there and deface them. From planting saplings and tapping solar energy to saving water and electricity and using compost to grow plants, Bengalureans, especially youngsters, are leading the way towards a greener city. Environmentalists feel that awareness and education about conserving green spaces must begin from school. Dr T V Ramachandra, faculty, Energy and Wetlands Research Group, Centre for Ecological Sciences, Indian Institute of Science, feels that a sense of belonging and sincerity among the next generation is the ...

Oxygen injections to rejuvenate gasping lake 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - City
A Bengaluru startup has offered to help revive Bellandur lake by introducing oxygen injections into the polluted waterbody. Sunandan Lala, technical consultant at PCI Gases, told DH that they can offer a free month-long demonstration on how inducing dissolved oxygen injections into the lake helps revive it. "This method is common in Europe, but has never been tried here. If the government gives us a 8x6 metre plot, in a month we assure positive results. The government will just have to provide us the electricity to operate our machines," he said. Explaining the model, he said they have equipment filled with oxygen. Into this, a small quantity of lake water is mixed and then released back into the lake. "As the lake is highly polluted, oxygen cannot be introduced directly into it. Hence, it has to be dissolved with the same water and then released into the lake. This is effective as oxygen can be induced as and when required," he said. "We have a 30-35 cubic feet cylinder ready at our plant in Bommasandra ...

To eliminate middlemen and to become more consumer friendly, the Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom), plans to make the process of applying for new power connections online. Bescom managing director P Rajendra Cholan told reporters on Wednesday that Bescom would soon introduce a mechanism where applications for new connections, transferring names and seeking additional load will be done online.

The present system is tedious and makes people go through contractors. We are also are planning to simplify the application form," he said. There are 56 lakh consumers in Bengaluru, of whom around 7.5 lakh are looking for new connections or seeking transfer of names. Bescom has also found that there are over 7,000 contractors who help consumers with the formalities and make up a lobby worth Rs 75 crore.
