Standing in front of the Vidhana Soudha on Wednesday morning, people of Bengaluru took an oath that they would be careful about how they utilise water and reduce wastage. They were taking part in the 'Save Water-Save Bengaluru' awareness rally organised by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) on the occasion of World Water Day, in which Chief Minister Siddaramaiah also took part.

People should be prepared to use this recycled water for all purposes, other than drinking." He said the state was reeling under acute drought and there ...

Prisoners in paradise 22.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Walk your way to health, any age, any time, any place. Get going, keep moving, be active, shake it all about...boogie, boogie, boogie. 'That's what it is all about to take care of your small aches and pains,' is the age old advise for couch potatoes. How true! Walking is the best and the most economical activity for all movable living organisms to maintain pink of health. However, in 'namma' Bengaluru, we can only talk the walk as an ideal outdoor exercise sitting at home, and not talk while we walk because we need to keep concentrating on the hurdles that jump at us the moment we step out. Many parks and green spaces have sprung up in various localities, but to reach that ideal space and return home safely is a trip you undertake at your own risk. It is needless to elaborate on the dangers that lurk at every step — morning, noon and night. Not a day passes without the horrific news of falling trees, swarming bees, two-wheelers hit-and-run and predators prowling free, forbidding us a walk in gay ...

P Ravi Kumar, additional chief secretary, Department of Environment, Forests and Ecology, on Tuesday told the department officials to make people aware of forests and their importance. He was speaking after releasing a special postal cover as part of the International Forest Day programme here. "At present, people look at forests as a hindrance. They know that the forest is home to various wildlife species, but only a limited area is accessible. People also think that the forest is only meant for safaris. But there is much more to forests which they should be made aware of. Forest cover is being reduced. The agricultural land and urban areas are increasing, which is leading to conflicts," he said. Charles Lobo, chief post master general, Karnataka Circle, said the postal department releases a special stamp dedicated to wildlife during every wildlife week celebrations. Karnataka has over 60 permanent special cancelations. Among them, 10 are exclusive to wildlife like of Nagarahole, Bandipur, black bucks, ...
