Excellent initiative sanjay. It is very important to develop his contacts. It might also be useful to develop contact with his students current and past.

in the long run the objective should be atleast some people from his group use praja as a notepad to share their thoughts. the goal should be that through this interaction we laymen should be able to pick up atleast some basics about the science of waterbodies.

also if they are going on study missions to collect samples or something, perhaps some of us can volunteer and help with logistics.

Dear Sanjay,

Thanks for taking the initiative. I would be very happy to join the group going to meet Prof. T.V. Ramachandra next Saturday 5th Sept.

Looking forward to being advised about the time.

I hope all of you have seen Ritesh's posting where he has sent a PPT on Lakes that BBMP appears to have prepared in November 2008.

I have a number of scientific papers on various Lake rejuvenation issues which I would like to share with Prof. Ramachandra. I hope we will have occassion to do so. Shall try to condense the scientific papers into a PPT format so that all Praja-gals too can get an overview.

Great!  I have requested an afternoon time slot from Prof. TVR for purely personal reasons.  I have another event to be at from 9am-1pm on the 5th.  Will update once the time and location are fixed.

Also Prof. TVR sent me a brochure on a Urban Lake Monitoring & Management Workshop and Braindtorming session.  The brainstorming session on the 26th is probably more relevant to us.  A link is provided below.

 The new meeting room is as follows

 Seminar Hall, R No 100, Ground Floor
       Centre for Ecological Sciences (next to Super Computer / SERC)
       Indian Institute of Science
       Bangalore 560 012

       Phone: 22933099 (D)

Best method is to enter the campus from the New BEL road entrance on to Silver Oak Marg.   CES is right next to the Supercomputer Center.  Apparently, there is a different looking tree right next to the building which you cannot miss.

Don't think Shekhar is joining on, he is already on that side of the twon today. So join in.

Also, we should meet on the sidelines of this meeting. Need to share the plans for the event (code name mobilicity) and get more members involved.
