T N Shivakumar was 54 years old when he was diagnosed with third-stage breast cancer in 2004 and he was glad because after several downfalls in life, he did not want to live. On Sunday, he performed 302 Surya Namaskars in six-and-a-half hours at the Kidwai Memorial Institute of Oncology, without a break to catch his breath or have a sip of water. "Doctors told me that I would live only for three months. But after 13 years, I am still alive and healthy. I performed the Surya Namaskars to set an example to others that it is possible to defeat cancer and live a healthy, happy life," Shivakumar said. He also wanted to thank Kidwai Institute, where he received his treatment. Facing social stigma Shivakumar had to face social stigma as breast cancer is something associated only with women.

Dwellers in small apartment are up in arms against Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for making Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) and dual piping system mandatory. They refuse to follow new rules despite the Board setting a December 31, 2017-deadline. Members of Bangalore Apartments' Federation (BAF) said that it is practically impossible for the existing apartments having 50 and more residential units to set up STPs. A final notification was issued by BWSSB asking owners or the occupiers of apartments, commercial establishments and educational institutions to set up STP and dual piping system on April 21, 2017. BAF which claims to have support of more than 250 apartment associations has decided against the new rule in every possible way. "Vested interests are behind this new norm. More than a lakh dwellers are against it. We want to know how setting up STP will help when the treated sewage is finally going to end in SWDs and polluted lakes.
