Courting the green 21.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Saturday
With another World Earth Day falling today, the need to conserve the city's depleting green cover is only reiterated. The theme this year is environmental and climate literacy. The many campaigns that one sees in Bengaluru, in an effort to protect and preserve the green cover, is proof that people still care and want to do their bit to conserve the environment. Efforts are being undertaken by many small groups to clean the city by painting its walls so that people don't dump garbage there and deface them. From planting saplings and tapping solar energy to saving water and electricity and using compost to grow plants, Bengalureans, especially youngsters, are leading the way towards a greener city. Environmentalists feel that awareness and education about conserving green spaces must begin from school.

Clean climate: get rid of resistance to change 20.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The reality of man-made climate change has passed the stage when denying its presence would give any real solace. It is happening and humans are responsible for whatever will unfold upon our future generations because of it. The lasting solutions to these problems - if they ever come - must be spearheaded by governments. However, the governments are constrained by other more immediate problems to deal with: economic development, education, health, security, not to mention elections etc. Individuals, on the other hand, are free to apply practices of sustainability quite directly. For them, the problem is that of replicating the benefits: how do I convince people around me to adapt these methods? Or how is it going to help if only I do it while most others continue to live callously?
