For water enthusiasts in Whitefield

Whitefield Rising is planning a big WATER issues related event. We would like to have your presence for the same.
The theme is as follows:
  • Quit all dependence on tanker water.
    • Collaborate with BWSSB to bring water to you.
  • Infinitely self-sustain your water supply.
  • Enjoy water with low contaminants.
THEN YOU MUST ATTEND THE EVENT,  INKtalks Water, ON Saturday April 5 2014 AT JAGRITI Theater in Whitefield. We will start at 11 am sharp, so be in time to take your seats! 
    • Harvest rain.
    • Re-charge your borewell so that it never runs dry.
  • Reduce or eliminate energy consumption by STP and by an RO plant.
  • Have peace of mind knowing your water source and quality, and that it will be there for your grandchildren.
…and do it all in harmony with nature! Whitefield’s annual rain catchment can significantly augment our supply. With good water management, we may not need to buy tanker water of dubious quality!
The event will be informal and feature some thought leaders as well as speakers who have locally (within Whitefield) achieved success in rainwater re-charging, converting sewage to potable water and generally reaching sustainable water. The speakers will talk about local lakes, from Varthur Kere to Sheelavantha Kere, the troubles of these lakes, and recent successes in rejuvenation. 
Our thought leaders have succeeded in sustainable water usage across several locations in the country. The BWSSB will be there, with whom we would like to collaborate to bring Cauvery to us, and to ensure all of us comply with sewage norms.

The Smart City Advisory Forum was convened in Chennai only 5 times since 2016, showing minimal participation by elected representatives.

Chennai is among the first few cities to get selected under the Smart City Mission programme in 2016. As many as 48 projects under different categories were taken up under the scheme. With only a couple of projects left to be completed, isn't Chennai supposed to look 'smart' now? The much-hyped Central government scheme, launched in 2014, was envisioned to build core infrastructure and evolve 'smart' solutions that would make cities more livable and sustainable. But, a decade since, the reality on the ground may be a little different. While some of the facilities provided under these projects are under-utilised,…

Scenes from a community walk in Mumbai

When I moved to Mumbai, the city felt extremely 'walkable,' but a walking tour in Dadar broadened my definition of walkability.

When I moved to Mumbai in June 2023 for work, I found myself going for sight seeing to the city's tourist destinations. Though the city appeared to have consistent and wide footpaths almost everywhere, vehicular right of way seemed to be prioritised over the pedestrian right of way. This struck me as very strange, even as I continued to enjoy walking through lanes of Mumbai very much. On one hand, there is excellent footpath coverage, utilised by large crowds everywhere. On the other hand, speeding vehicles create obstacles for something as simple as crossing the road.  "Though Mumbai appeared to…
