Just weeding Bellandur lake will not help: Saldanha 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Environment Support Group convener Leo Saldanha said the NGT was passing orders for quick-fix solutions as officials have failed to communicate the extent of the crisis in Bellandur lake. "Closing down industries alone will not save Bellandur lake. Solid waste is dumped in stormwater drains. How can we expect the sewage treatment plants to work when the water they handle has so much of solid waste?" he asked. Saldanha said clearing weeds does more harm than good. "Don't look at hyacinth as a disease. Hyacinth draws the excess nutrition in water. It basically treats sewage water. If you remove all weeds, then you are letting raw sewage into water," he said. "I appeal to the NGT to consider the Justice N K Patil report which suggested lining the 840 km of storm water drains with trees, bamboos and grass shrubs. These will absorb all the waste, allowing only clean water to pass," he said. He said every programme of the government agencies in saving lakes showed how incompetent officials have been in ...

Search for ideal world 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Bengaluru-based photographer and film-maker Ryan Lobo's debut novel is set on a huge premise. Much like Cervantes's Don Quixote, Lobo's hero, a 60-year old English-speaking Tamil Brahmin, Mr Iyer, meets with an accident, leading to a head injury which causes him to imagine that he is a mythological hero. The idealistic Mr Iyer believes that he is an incarnation of Bhima, the mighty Pandava of the epic Mahabharata, and is on a journey to make the world a better place. His expedition is, of course, not the lofty tour of the world, but limited to the river banks of the sacred city of Varanasi. Living away from his family, in a home for the dying people, the deluded hero sets out to correct corrupt politicians and exploitative stooges. Absorbed in the visions of his past lives, Mr Iyer fantasises about his battle with the demon Bakasura, who symbolises the evil of this world. Lobo's Don Quixote is accompanied by his Sancho Panza, an undertaker named Bencho, who goes along with him on a series of ...

His language of music 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It is an unusual medley. The relentless hammering of the carpenter, the patient tuning of the musical instruments, and the baritone voice of the man who brought Indian violin to the centre stage of global music. At Dr L Subramaniam's home in North Bengaluru, I'm all ears as the violinist goes back in time to chat about Indian musicians' tryst with the Western world in the 1960s-70s. Apparently, that was the time when quite a few artistes from India went on major tours abroad and received standing ovations. "You see, the guests would have to get up for a refill," says the Padma Shree awardee, with a poker face. Mani (as he is fondly called) senses my confusion, before going on to explain how these tours were often nothing more than a potluck dinner at some weekend get-together! Hero worship "If you have to play at house concerts," Dr Subramaniam's father V Lakshminarayana had told him decades ago, "you can do it in India. Why go abroad?" A well-known violinist and teacher, Lakshminarayana's dream wasto ...
