Experts say that celebrating Diwali with care can prevent accidents such as visual impairment, hearing loss, breathing problems among others. "The spark from fireworks can damage eyelids and eyebrows. The eye may also lose its moisture due to the smoke emitted by crackers," said Dr Shashidhar, ophthalmologist, Minto Eye Hospital.

While serious runners pushed their limits at the full and half marathons at the fourth edition of Bengaluru Marathon, thousands also took part in the non-competitive '5K Hope Run'. The crowd was no less energetic and had people of all ages, including young children, take part in it. The weather was pleasant as participants geared up for the run at 8.30 am.

Santosh Hegde sees 'sinister' design in new steel flyovers 15.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Former Lokayukta Justice (retd) Santosh N Hegde said there was something "sinister" in the state governments proposal to build two new steel flyovers. Speaking to about 500 people who had gathered to celebrate the first anniversary of the successful SteelFlyoverBeda protest, he said steel flyovers had been declared unscientific but the government was creating them here. "When economists say steel bridge is not economically viable, when environmentalists say steel bridges will increase the temperature, we are building them in our city that saw temperature rising to 40 degrees Celsius last year," he said. Stressing the need to fight to protect the city, Justice Hegde said: "Throughout the globe, they are dismantling steel bridges. They (the government) heeded the pressure from people and abandoned the steel bridge. Now, they are thinking of two more steel bridges. We have to check how right the government is." He urged people not to differentiate between parties when it comes to the fight for justice. ...
