Farmer-friendly innovations 24.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The proverb 'Necessity is the mother of inventions' better explains the efforts of Girish Badragond, a young researcher based out of Vijayapura. Hailing from a farming family, Girish developed interest in making electronics and electrical gadgets when he was in primary school. In spite of his keen interest in the field of technology, Girish couldn't continue beyond Class 10. But this did not stop him from experimenting with tools and machines. Later, he shifted to Bengaluru in search of work. Here, he continued creating simple and useful machines. As his interest in technology grew, he decided to use his expertise to develop farm-related machinery. The first machine he developed was a borewell scanner that assessed ground water availability and its pressure and temperature. He felt the need for such a machine in 2006 when Vijayapura was under the grip of drought. After working on it for three years, Girish developed the first successful prototype in 2009. The scanner, which also measures the inflow and ...

Residents of various localities on the periphery of Vibhutipura lake took part in 'Run4Lake-5k' initiative on Sunday, to raise awareness about the dying water body, near HAL airport.

Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off.

All of them discharge sewage into an open drain closeby. One of the establishments, Adyar Anand Bhavan, openly pumps sewage water into the open drain using a high-power pump during the day. The result is that the entire stretch stinks the whole day. Will the authorities concerned look into the matter and crack down on the errant hotels?
