This article is a light note on observations/experiences of someone who has undergone construction of a dream house of a neighbour. Probably most of you have undergone this state, if you are/were in Bangalore. This happened in a outer belt of "greater" Bangalore. Here we go:
The pictures below offer two views of a dig-up (on 12th main, HAL 2nd stage, Indiranagar, adjacent to Corner House), obviously by BWSSB, to access their manhole cover, the top of which has gone almost a foot below the re-tarred road surface.
We came "this" close to going dry this summer. How close? Don't really know, but the word is that if rains had arrived 10 days later, we would have hit that point. But now that rains are here, newspapers, BWSSB, KNNL (Neeravari Nigam) will all move on and wait for a crisis to approach next year or year after depending on when we would have the next monsoon shortfall.
The two media links below are fairly self explanatory of what can be called a potentiol ecologocal disaster right here in banglore. The strories of bellandur lake are based on an IISc report that is attached to this post.
