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.

“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 :)”

October 2023 was a shocker for Mumbai. The coastal city has historically recorded lower AQI levels as compared to Delhi, which is notorious for its poor air quality. But the tables turned in October 2023, with AQI in Mumbai reaching dangerously high levels of up to 300, surpassing Delhi for several days. This led to a slew of respiratory ailments, more so among the vulnerable populations. PM2.5 levels have, in fact, seen a consistent increase in Mumbai over the past three years. Dr Jui Mandke, a paediatric surgeon practising in Mumbai, says, โ€œIn October 2023, we encountered the maximum number…
