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 ...

Water crisis complaints on the rise, but MLAs fail to raise voice 19.5.2017 DNA: India
Over the last one year, issues related to water supply and its pollution have emerged as the city's major civic woes, with the incidence of such complaints rising by as much as 51 per cent in 2016. This is despite the fact that providing sufficient amount of water was the Arvind Kejriwal-led Aam Aadmi Party's (AAP) major poll plank. The complaints regarding water crisis in Delhi increased from 150,885 in 2015 to 227,444 in 2016. What is rather unfortunate is, however, the fact that MLAs raised only 38 questions regarding the water crisis during the Assembly sessions held in 2016. As many as six legislators did not raise the issue at all. This data was revealed in a survey done by the Praja Foundation, based on the civic complaints lodged by people, deliberations by MLAs in Assembly sessions, and corporators in the three municipal corporation from January, 2014 to December, 2016. The number of pollution-related complaints by citizens increased from 86 in 2014 to 142 in 2015, and 216 in 2016. However, for ...
