A 30-foot-tall and 10-year-old jamun tree in Sarjapur on the southern outskirts of Bengaluru has been translocated to a government school. Residents of KR Beedhi in Sarjapur were having problems with the tree.

Once a tree cutter, now a tree saviour 3.7.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Devaraj Lakshmaiah, 48, is a professional tree cutter. He has axed more than 10,000 trees in Bengaluru for various road-widening projects. He has now vowed to translocate trees. The change of heart came dramatically when a few members of Sarjapur Residents Welfare Association were interviewing him for a documentary on translocation of trees. They had also sought his help to prune and translocate a tree from Sarjapur Main Road to a school in Gunjur. "I realised my folly during the interview. I realised that trees, too, have the right to live. I have decided that I will not cut down good trees, but only dead ones," he told DH. Lakshmaiah has been a tree cutter all his life. He earns Rs 500 a day for pruning or cutting down trees. Two months ago, some residents of Sarjapur Main Road contacted him when he was cutting trees on Sarjapur-Attibele Main Road. "They requested me to prune the branches of four trees and help translocate them. When they were filming the whole exercise and I was part of it, I realised ...

At a time when playgrounds and open spaces are hard to find, the play arenas that have sprung up across the city have come as a blessing in disguise. Bengalureans are now stretching, jumping and taking part in games more than ever. These arenas offer the option to play at least five different kinds of sport in one huge space.

For some frothy fun 21.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The minute you get onto the soapy floor, you start laughing. It is never going to be a serious game as you are constantly sliding, slipping and falling. 'Soap football' is the kind of game which is believed to bring people closer. A sport designed for people of all ages with zero experience in football, soap football is catching on among Bengalureans. The format was invented in Brazil where football lovers spiced up the game with soap. Combining the fun of water, the unpredictability of soap and the excellence of football in one game, the game promises to be all-round fun. The field is made of multi-coloured polyester, defined by an inflatable edge and a soft-bedded floor, which makes it practically impossible for injuries. At present, there is only venue in the city offering the sport — 'Be-Live It Soap Football' off Sarjapur Main Road. "The aim is to improve active lifestyle by giving importance to sports along with the blended element of fun," says Salion Edward, one of the managing partners of ...

Right on track 15.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
That Bengaluru has a fitness-crazy crowd is no secret. But while initially the city's infrastructure was not able to keep pace with the running crowd (pun intended), times are changing now. The newly constructed jogging and running tracks at several locations across the city have brought cheer to fitness enthusiasts and are even serving as an incentive for others to hit the ground. Exclusive jogging tracks at a few places across the city, such as at Babusapalya in Kalyan Nagar and Sankey Tank, draw a lot of people. At a time when even pedestrian paths are hard to find, these enclosed spaces are a huge boost to the fitness-conscious community in the city. Talking about the importance of such spaces, Vijayaraghavan Venugopal, a marathon runner, observes that people who walk or jog on the road are at a risk of being hit by speeding vehicles. "People want safer places to exercise. There have been many instances where even cyclists have been knocked down so one can imagine the plight of joggers," says ...
