Trash doesn’t go away…


At Casa Ansal, on Bannerghatta Road, opposite Shoppers’ Stop, residents are deeply unhappy over their inability to do anything about the illegal garbage dump that seems to have come to stay, right against their compound wall.

"The tip was in one of the side roads of the Mini Forest," says Suresh, the manager of the apartment, "where it was at least on common property."

Then, for no known reason (though the residents opine that it was at the behest of the house-owners on the two roads of the Mini Forest), the garbage dump was shifted to the side wall of the Casa Ansal residential complex.

"The whole road is messed up now," says Ratheesh, an auto driver who often parks at the auto stand at the corner. Rodents have increased manifold, and birds of prey like Barn Owls and Shikras hunt there regularly….but are unable to keep the rodent population in check.

The mess often overflows, in spite of tipper autos and collection carts calling there regularly

Recently, residents put up a banner that clearly announced that it was illegal to dump trash here, but the problem continues unchecked.

The corporator was unavailable for comment, says the Mangaging Committee, and remained so over several days. Many of the residents say that they have never seen their corporator and do not know who he is.

When will the resident of this apartment building have this unhygienic eyesore removed?

    All of that stretch of Bannerghatta road is a huge garbage dump. There is an ever increasing dump on BG Road, that started just a few months back, just in front of the upcoming mall. I wonder how the local officials/corporators never notice it..everybody drives on that road including a VIP cavalcade yesterday. After repeated complaints some JCBs were sent to remove it, but it came back the very next day..people even dump construction debris there,,I wonder what the problem with enforcement is?

"Will you walk into my parlour?" Said the spider to the fly. "I've spread a carpet of silk and diamonds! Walk in, and don't be shy! Do come along, for I grow thinner... I've LOVE to have you, ahem, for dinner!" Jokes apart, Funnel Web Spiders also called Wolf Spiders, are named because of the funnel-like web they weave...and the second name is given because they are ferocious predators. They build a flat sheet of nonsticky web with a funnel-shaped retreat to one side or occasionally in the middle, depending on the situation and species. The typical hunting mode is…

Theatre Review: “Credit Titles” by Bangalore Little Theatre

It was like a rare alignment of the planets: several factors come together to pull me out of my usual Ranga Shankara ambit for watching a play. I had not been to visit Bangalore International Centre, which opened a while ago in Domlur; Bangalore Little Theatre, as part of their "VP 80" festival, was staging "Credit Titles"; the play, written by Vijay Padaki, whose 80th birthday the festival marks, was based on a story by Vinod Vyasulu, an eminent economist whom I've known for a long time, as our daughters share a cose friendship dating from 1988. And last but…
