  • Ask Karnataka CM to implement 6 steps to save Bangalore lakes
    Bangalore, today, is sitting on a silent time bomb of depleting and degrading quality of sources of water. One of the solutions lies in the restoration of lakes for recharging its ground water, meeting water needs of the city and, also, keeping its climate cool. For centuries, lakes were a source of livelihood for local communities and provided all water needs of the city till early seventies. However, it has seen a rapid decline and number of lakes with good quality of water is down to around 18. Most of the 256 lakes have dried up due to encroachment of connecting canels (raja-kaluves) and lake beds. They are also the sitting target to receive sewage from nearby localities. The effort of government so far has been reactive and half hearted, even after several land mark orders from high courts and recommendations from several high power committees. Citizen groups are fighting a rear guard battle to save lakes and the situation is so alarming that if the government still does not take up lake rejuvenation at a war footing and in a coordinated manner then the future of the city is doomed. It is still possible to do it if all of us can raise our voice in support of the key demands that has been identified by experts from all NGOs and organizations working for protection of lakes. Please take action NOW!

  • Save Bellandur Lake - Please stop Bellandur Agara SEZ
    1. Construction on the wetland leading to Bellandur will adversely affect Bellandur lake and in the worst case situation lead to drying up of the lake itself. Groundwater levels of the entire area are already alarmingly low and will get severely affected. The dangers have been vividly brought out by the report published by the Centre for Ecological Studies, IISc which recommended immediate scrapping of the project. This will worsen water problems for lacs of citizens -- as it is, Bellandur area - including the village, and apartments and houses on Sarjapur Road and Outer Ring Road, suffer major water problems, depending almost fully on tanker water (mafia). HSR and Koramangala water tables are also worsening. Interestingly in the same length, a few areas like HSR are also prone to flooding due to misplaced gradients. 2. The monitoring report of the Ministry for Environment and Forests, Government of India has commented that the critical condition laid down in the grant of Environmental clearance to the Mantri Project i.e “the natural slope and hydrology of the land shall stay unaltered” is not being adhered to and what is even more alarming “cannot be complied with”. 3. The Lake Development Authority has inspected the site and recommended cancellation of the project. 4. The project involves commitment of huge amounts of water to the two projects. Both projects together will use close to 180 million litres of water a month. That much water is not supplied by BWSSB at present to the entire Koramangala, HSR and Bellandur areas together. 5. There is a real threat of floods and back flows effecting Koramangala and HSR areas because the natural flood plains of Bellandur wetlands will be destroyed by this project, if there is water, that is. Bengaluru is rapidly losing what it is known for:- Lakes and Gardens. The objective of this community is to restore its lost glory as the Garden CIty of India We need your active support for this. This group is involved in several community initiatives in this direction including 1. Rejuvenating lakes in Bangalore 2. Town Planning 3. Assisting in Traffic Management 4. Filing RTIs and writ petitions 5. Alerting communities that concern them at local level For more details, please visit the facebook group “Reclaim Bengaluru” Please help in averting this ecological catastrophe. You will be blessed and remembered for such a noble gesture and for able adminstration Thank you. !!Jai Hind!!

  • save the western ghats
    Our western ghats are filled with a variety of plants, herbs and home to some endangered birds and animals. Recently, some new species of insects and fishes were discovered by ecologist in goa, karnataka, lavasa and near by areas. These ghats are the pride of maharashtra, goa, karnataka and some parts of gujarat. If the government is not able to handle the situation and takes no necessary action to stop as well as to control these criminal activities, the day is not very far from disaster. All Mining work is destroying the forests and sea where as dams and human encroachments are killing insects, birds, water life and animals. One of the best hill stations of western ghats is Ooty and is famous for its beauty but now its turning into a garbage dump due to humans.! No Western Ghats- No Life.

  • Make garbage segregation compulsory at source
    This is the only way forward for managing garbage effectively and keeping things out of landfills. Citizens should be educated by the government bodies, rules should apply to all (individual home owners, apartments, gated communities, commercial buildings, offices etc) . No one should escape the responsibility of managing their own garbage. Empower the collectors, educate them and also make it profitable for them by partnering with them to reduce the waste that is sent to the dump.

    plants are very important for life in earth plants are even known to relate to the moods and behaviors of the people they’re growing around! For example, an angry or hostile gardener will cause his or her plants to wilt, shrink and even die, while a gardener who speaks to his or her plants encouragingly and in a soothing voice, and approaches them with true appreciation and affection, will make them grow strong and beautiful.1 Read more: Plant Power: Keeping Our Green Friends Happy http://www.kidzworld.com/article/17187-plant-power-keeping-our-green-friends-happy#ixzz2acExTI8W
