It was all over in a few seconds, says crocodile attack survivor 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
"I hit the crocodile with all my might to save myself," said a cheerful Mudit Dandwate, who survived a crocodile attack on Sunday morning at Thattakere lake in Anekal, 38 km from the city. Recollecting the incident, the 26-year-old said it was around 7.45 am and everything (the combat) was over in a few a seconds. "I had gone with my friend and my two dogs Potato and Pi to the lake. I had a very busy week and wanted to de-stress. So my friend and I decided to go on a trip. We would normally go cycling, trekking or driving around Bengaluru. But this one was not planned," he said. As Dandwate and his friend entered the lake, a crocodile chewed off his left hand. "The road to the lake was partially tarred. We parked the car two kilometres away from the temple and started walking. As soon as Potato (his black Labrador) saw water, he ran to take a plunge. Worried about his safety, I went behind him. I did not realise that the lake had crocodiles in it. When I was playing with Potato and trying to bring him ...

The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday ordered notices to the state government and the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) in a petition filed by Shahi Exports Private Limited seeking quashing of the notice issued to them by KSPCB to close down their unit on Bannerghatta Road.

'Mysuru was not in list of smart cities forwarded by state govt' 27.6.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Even as the state government and people of Karnataka are rejoicing the inclusion of Bengaluru in the smart city list, it has come to light that Mysuru was never in the list forwarded by the state government. The lapse has been on the part of stakeholders, including people's representatives and government officials. Bhamy Shenoy, convenor of Mysore Grahakara Parishat, said that despite being the hometown of the chief minister, Mysuru lost the golden opportunity of transforming itself into a smart city. This, despite receiving a funding of over Rs 1,000 crore, 50% of which would have come from the Centre. "All the four stakeholders — Mysureans, Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) staff led by the commissioner, elected representatives, and civic organisations — are accountable for the loss. Most of the Mysureans are irresponsible. We take little or no interest in civic issues. We do not pay our water bills. Less than 50% to 60% of water bills are paid. We do not like to pay our property taxes. Again, ...
