Incremental Metro Extension in Phase 2

Metro Rail

Metro Phase 2 works are going to start very soon. But how long it would take? Phase 1 which started in 2007, saw the light in 2011 partially. For complete Phase 1 to complete, it would be end of 2015 or even 2016. Almost close to 9 years. Phase 2 in the phase 1 pace might take another 9 years. If the work starts now in June / July, it might complete somwhere in 2023.

Garbage daily or weekly?

Public Health

Was watching SatyamevaJayate on TV the other day and as usual there was loads of emotions and the story was about garbage collectors or 'poura-karmikas' in BBMP terms..where they went around explaning their position and it was interesting indeed.

They on a everyday basis handle hazardous waste insluding diapers and other other harmful garbage.

Dissecting AAP manifesto 2014

Governance

All said and done, AAP has catalysed change country-wide, and it very much deserves to be in the picture, even after the elections, perhaps in place of Congress and as a an alternative to BJP. This is particulaly so as far as Karnataka is concerned, where neither Congress nor BJP has much of a credible standing. And, that's why AAP interests me.
