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.

"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.

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. The move is illogical," said general secretary, ...

Fall at first sight 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Monday
While unpaved roads filled with potholes tend to be one of the most common reasons for road accidents in the city, the newest addition that does its bit in ensuring that the four-wheeler and two-wheeler riders don't have a smooth ride is the issue of protruding manhole lids. Successful in jolting and shocking drivers in equal measure, these unlevelled lids are causing a serious threat to many motorists in Bengaluru. "These protruding manhole lids are a common sight while on my way to work. If nothing else, safety is the main concern. These manhole lids contribute to the increasing number of accidents in the city. For example, when one sees manhole lids like these from a distance, they tend to suddenly apply breaks, thinking it is a speed breaker. It is very risky," says Oswald Ernest. "Apart from making the road bumpier and acting as a 'back-breaker' rather than a speed breaker, many careless riders also tend to use these for stunts, which is extremely dangerous. The officials should either level the ...
