Horamavu Agara Kere Habba 12th Sep 2015

Another Kere Habba this Saturday! The Horamavu Parisara Abhivruddhi Samiti (HPAS) – formerly Save Horamavu Lakes, in association with Namma Bengaluru Foundation is organising the Horamavu Agara Kere Habba on Saturday, 12th September 2015, from 7 a.m. to 12 noon at Horamavu Agara Kere.

Kere Habba is an initiative of Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF). Habbas are held periodically at different Bangalore lakes, to create awareness about the importance of our lakes, and encourage citizen participation in their preservation. Reports/information about the previous four Kere Habbas can be seen on these links – Kere Habba at Kaikondrahalli LakePuttenahalli Kere Habba, Madiwala Kere Habba, Chellakere Habba.    

Picked off the Facebook event page

“Last June we called volunteers to clean up around the lake. This time around, we invite you for a bunch of fun activities by the lake side !!

The objective of the Kere Habba, or Lake Festival, is to let us residents reconnect with the water body near our home, simply because if this lake is dirty, our tap water will be equally dirty. Similarly, if this lake gets dried up, our borewells will dry up too!

So let’s cherish our lake ! 

Your massive presence is a vote for cleanliness and eco-consciousness. Each one of us who turns up for the event will be another ‘yes’ to more migratory birds and another ‘no’ to sewage dumping.

Bring friends, family and colleagues, there will be fun for all age groups. Hope to see you there in numbers, determined to reclaim your lake :)”

Keshopur is a large retail…

Study shows TNPCB ill-equipped to monitor the environmental impact of pollution

The scientific team of TNPCB is working at half its strength, affecting the Board's ability to carry out inspections in Chennai and other parts of the State.

The Central Pollution Control Board and the State Pollution Control Boards are the primary custodians for preventing and controlling all forms of pollution in our country. Despite their significant role in environmental protection, the public is mostly unaware of the functions of these regulatory bodies, due to insufficient research. Therefore, we at Citizen consumer & civic Action Group (CAG) have attempted to understand the functions of the Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board (TNPCB), through a study titled ‘The Tamil Nadu Pollution Control Board in Retrospect: An Examination of Selected Parameters from 2017 to 2022.’ Read more: Fisherfolk lament as environmental…
