The 'back-to-school' drill 26.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
This sultry May week saw my sons and spouses scurrying out with children in tow. It was the time for their pre-school shopping. Soon, car loads of school paraphernalia — books (with enough material of the specified quantity, quality and colour to cover them), school bags, lunch boxes, water bottles, rain coats, belts, ties, uniforms, socks — landed in the house. The click-clack of the scissors cutting into the covering sheets joined the raised voices of parents warning the children not to meddle with the work. Lo! Another academic year has started in right earnest with all the seriousness it demands! All this took me decades back to my Economics class, where we learnt the concept of 'roundabout production' — here, the production of a boat starts with the mining of the metal required to make the axe to cut the tree with which to obtain the wood to make the boat! School reopening had its own excitement during our times too; but it was of an intimate and personal kind and the list of ...

Maharani's hostel students demand adequate water 26.5.2017 Deccan Herald - District
The students of Maharani's College Hostel were up in arms against the hostel authorities for not taking measures to supply adequate water. The students staged a flash protest on the hostel premises here on Friday. The students accused hostel warden Latha of indulging in irregularities, and demanded that she be transferred. The agitating students complained that there was no sufficient water supply in the hostel from the last one-and-a-half months. The water was supplied through tankers only when the students took up the issue with the authorities. As many as 350 students are inconvenienced due to poor facilities, they alleged. The hostel premises is unhygienic, toilets are in a dilapidated condition and waste collection is not being done on a daily basis. Mosquito menace is rampant and the street dogs stray into the hostel rooms. During admission, the authorities collect Rs 7,500 from each student and also charge Rs 1,500 mess bill per month. If any inmate fail to pay the mess bill, the warden harasses ...

Restore Bellandur, other lakes, reduce pressure on Cauvery 26.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
A lake catching fire is an epochal event. Bellandur made news in the BBC, CNN, France News, TokyoTV,The Guardian etc around the world. The last time a lake burned was in 1969 when Cuyahoga river joining Erie Lake near Cleveland, USA started burning from dumping of sewage and industrial pollutants. This compelled the Nixon administration to create the Environment Protection Agency in 1970 and Clean Water Act in 1972. Afterwards, no lake is burning in the US. In Karnataka, the BWSSB was established in 1964 and the Water (Prevention and Control of Pollution) Act and the Pollution Control Board came into existence in 1974. It speaks volumes of law-implementation the last 40 years when lakes of Bengaluru — the Land of a Thousand Tanks — have started supplying fire instead of water. Human excreta is a taboo subject and is coyly termed "night soil" because traditionally, it was manually collected in pots mixed with soil especially from rich people's homes, usually in the night. It has been used as ...
