Save Lalbagh

April 15, 2009

Dear All,

Earlier this week(April 13 and 14), the Bangalore Metro Rail corporation(BMRCL) has demolished over 500 feet of Lalbagh’s wall and cut down 5 eucalyptus trees inside Lalbagh. BMRCL proposes to have a Metro station inside Lalbagh itself!

Lalbagh is protected by a separate, stringent law. In a highly undemocratic move, the Karnataka Government changed the law by moving an ordinance to acquire LalbaGh land for the Metro, rather than prefer a debate over the changed law, in the Assembly. The opposition has also failed to protest this undemocratic move.

Lalbagh and Lakshman Rao Park on R.V.Road, (also called the AC Road, Nanda Road ), both major landmarks and heritage of Bangalore are being destroyed for the Metro. This when the High Court is hearing PIL over alternatives in Metro alignment.

What seems like a minor portion of Lalbagh gone today will surely lead to greater portion of the park being taken away to create parking zones and malls that the Metro plans at its stations.

When they sought clearance, Metro authorities claimed trees on Nanda Road will be pruned, and not felled. Now they want to cut 323 trees on Nanda Road(R.V.Road) alone. The BBMP Tree Officer has confirmed that the tree felling in Lalbagh was not cleared by him.

This makes felling of Lalbagh’s heritage trees, daylight robbery!

Don’t be a mute witness to this wanton destruction and illegal desecration of our parks and open spaces. Come out and protest. Demand from candidates standing from Bangalore South to make their stand clear on the issue.

Let us stop the illegal construction of Metro in Lalbagh.

Join the Human Chain to be formed at the illegal demolition site(at R.V.Road, near Lalbagh westgate) on Wednesday,

April 15, 6.00 pm. Be there. 6 pm

Young India on Climate Change

April 3, 2009

We at the British Council have organised a program on the subject of “What does young Indian think about Climate Change?

British Council recently conducted a research in 4 cities in India covering about 800 plus young people (18 to 25) to find out what they really think about climate change. The research was conducted by A C Nielson.
Now we are ready with the research findings and we want to use this as a platform to initiate dialogue with the youth on this topic. We hope to create awareness and motivate them to take some concrete steps towards mitigating the results of climate change.
 
The event
A film on climate change (about an hour)
Sharing of research findings (5 minutes)
Panel discussion (50 minutes)
