Stackable cars for central district?

EnvironmentTrafficPublic Transport

How about something like this for congested central areas of cities like Bangalore? This kind of fits in with Vikash's idea, its just another EV in his last mile transportation solution. Imagine getting down at a Bus/Metro hub in or near CBD. And then renting a car like this to go around. You can get to any congested corner, no matter how narrow the roads are. And these wont require parking lots for storage, stacking lots would be more like it.


I came across a project being done by an NGO called Parisara and BWSSB. They are doing something to revive the greenery for bangalore. I thought that I will share the same over here so that readers of praja can participate if interested. Excerpt from the site of Spoorthivana

Vision :

To preserve the eco system for future generations.


To grow trees with active public participation and involvement. To create awareness among public and to create a live museum of memories so that the future generations would be inspired. Spoorthivana 35 Kms away from Bangalore city on way to Magadi, near the confluence of Arkavathi and Kumudvathi rivers; SPOORTHIVANA – a dream project for preserving all your cherished memories by planting saplings, has come up in 300 acres of sprawling terrains belonging to Bangalore Water Supply & Sewerage Board (BWSSB) at TG Halli (Thippagondanahalli) reservoir catchment area. The Government of Karnataka has approved this greening venture with BWSSB and Parisara The idea is that you could sponsor a tree for Rs 500/- and it will be maintained by the spoorthivana team.

Chamalapura People's Voice - Video

With all the political drama going on in the state, the Chamalapura issue seems to be of little interest to the politicians currently. But nevertheless, you would not be surprised if the issue is opened again in the near future when things are settles at Vidhana Soudha. We got access to one of the documentaries made by Anti-Chamalapura-Powerplant activists through Mr. E.R.Ramachandran and we are glad to share it with you here.
