Discussion: “Changing Bengaluru – In Your Voices”

You’ve cribbed, you’ve ranted, you’ve tolerated, you’ve praised (even if rarely) aspects of our city, Bengaluru. Here’s an opportunity to let everyone hear what you think about the way our city is changing.

PNLIT and Saaphalya Pramukha Trust are organizing an open discussion on how the city echoes with the many sweeping changes brought about by time and people. 
Leading the discussion will be Ms Bhargavi S. Rao, Trustee, Environment Support Group (ESG), Bengaluru and Mr G.V. Dasarathi who promotes sustainable transport (cycling, walking, using a bus). 
Venue: Gazebo, Puttenahalli Lake, Near MLR Convention Centre, JP Nagar 7th Phase
Date: Sat. 24th Aug 2013
Time: 10.30 a.m. (please assemble by 10.15 a.m.)
About the organizers:
Saaphalya Pramukha Trust was set up to address the issues that affect people and society at large. These are concerns voiced by Pramukh Raghunandan, a young journalist before his untimely demise. His articles along with views of experts on aspects that capture the soul of this city have been compiled in a volume titled “So The City Echoes” which will be available at the venue for a donation of any amount you make to Saaphalya.
Puttenahalli Neighbourhood Lake Improvement Trust (PNLIT) is a citizens’ initiative to tackle the worsening water crisis in the city by reviving our lakes. PNLIT maintains the Puttenahalli Lake with donations from the public.

Puttenahalli Lake Stories

Finally, Mr. Ramachandran, a regular visitor to the lake got…

Nrityotsav at Puttenahalli Lake

We've had and will continue to have, diverse events at the lake to bring the neighbourhood together. The Nrityotsav on 5th November, held in collaboration with Nritya Darpan and IPAAC, was unique for more than one reason. This was not only our first formal dance programme but also that it took place on a stage specially set up, with the water in the background and birds flying overhead. Also the first time in terms of the number of artists (90?) from little ones aged 7 (I guess) to shall I dare say, 45 years? The dancers were accompanied by their relatives and friends so…
