Bihar worker dies of blood contamination 17.2.2018 deccanherald.com
A 25-year-old man lay trapped in the debris of a collapsed building for 18 hours, thinking of his two children living in a remote village in Bihar. Fire department personnel rescued Hazarath, a fair-skinned and well-built man, from the rubbles of the five-storied building that collapsed in Jayarama Reddy Layout in Kasuvanahalli on Sarjapur Road. The victim succumbed to his injuries at the hospital, in what doctors described as lack of precautions while being taken for treatment. Hazarath belongs to Chabiya Budur village in Siwan district in Bihar. He was doing plastering work at the building that tumbled on Thursday evening. Sources at Sakra Hospital said a concrete brick fell on Hazaraths hands, stopping the blood flow and turning it toxic in the 18 hours he spent trapped in the debris. When he was pulled out of the wreckage at 8.30 am on Friday, the toxic blood spread around his body and caused his death about 9.20 am soon after he was taken to hospital, doctors who treated him told DH.

Doubling Hosur line: Over 20 lakh to benefit 6.2.2018 deccanherald.com
Doubling the 48-km railway line from Baiyappanahalli to Hosur could dramatically decongest the IT corridor stretch along Hosur Road, Outer Ring Road (ORR) and Sarjapur Road leading to Electronics City. Introducing fast, frequent and reliable suburban trains on the additional line can potentially push over 20 lakh people on this stretch to switch from road to rail. This is the big takeaway from the green signal given to the doubling project with a budgetary allocation of Rs 375.67 crore. Thousands of commuters, urban rail analysts and researchers have welcomed the move, but want railway stations to be upgraded and last-mile gaps filled through shuttle buses. Consider this: Commuters are trapped daily in hours-long traffic gridlocks on the ORR stretch from K R Puram to Silk Board Junction on Hosur Road through Marathahalli, Mahadevapura, Kadubeesanahalli, Bellandur and Sarjapur Road Junction. Now, visualise the suburban trains evacuating thousands of commuters every 10 to 15 minutes from stations that run ...

Children are up in arms to protect Hadosiddapura lake 3.2.2018 Deccan Herald - News
Basking in the winter sun, swaying to the pleasant breeze with the chirping of birds all along, a bunch of school students began their weekend with a mission to protect the nature that surrounded them. The initiative by these students is an etho of the festival that their school had organised. Kere Habba by the Prakriya Green Wisdom School, Doddakannelli, Sarjapur Road, celebrated the spirit of lakes around Bengaluru, especially the ones near the school. The students are on a mission to revive Hadosiddapura lake, which they fear, might die a slow death.

While acacia and tamarind trees are abundant, a huge eucalyptus forest is also present near the lake bed. REVIVAL PLAN Siddharth ...
