Citizen group uses app to map trees in Bangalore, details to be shared with BBMP
A team of four people has been travelling across the lanes of South Bengaluru in the scorching sun, mapping each tree on the street on an app. Project Vruksha, the technology-enabled census launched on March 17, aims to document all the trees in the city. The team took up Pattabhi Ram Nagar as the pilot ward and 20 days of hard work yielded exhaustive information on 100 trees on the app.

So far the 100 trees marked in the census include Gulmohar, Rain tree, Mahogany and Pongame Oil tree species, which are around 40 years old,” said conservationist Vijay Nishanth, also known as Bengaluru’s Tree Doctor, who is spearheading the project. “As we are a small team, this mapping in ward 168 will take another month for us to complete. Then, we will move to Jayanagar east (ward 170). We are also testing the app for any technical issues and plan to upgrade it further,” Nishanth added, pointing that the data uploaded is static at present.

Bengaluru Wins ‘Healthiest City’ Crown:
Eat right, sleep early, exercise hard, repeat—a popular mantra for a healthy living. Simple enough to say but excruciatingly difficult follow. There are, however, varied parameters that go into deciding whether a person is living a healthy lifestyle. If one goes by a recent study, then Bengalureans seem to be doing it right.

GOQii, a preventive healthcare company, conducted a study which hails the IT-hub as India’s healthiest city. The study took into account the BMI, lifestyle diseases, stress, sleep, food habits and smoking and alcohol levels of the citizens to arrive at the conclusion that among the urban Indian areas, Bengaluru is the healthiest of cities, followed by Delhi NCR, Hyderabad, Mumbai and Chennai.

Just like other metros, Bengaluru too has to deal with heavy traffic, work stress and other urban issues. So what are Bengalureans doing differently to rise above the rest and maintain their fitness through it all?

A.N. Yellappa Reddy, former forest officer and environmentalist; Vinay Baindur, a researcher on Urban Governance and Reforms, and citizen activist Arbind Gupta joined The Hindu for a chat on saving Bengaluru's lakes on September 24, 2016. The following is the transcipt of the chat:

6:01 The Hindu: With the city and the state staring at a water crisis in the coming days, there is perhaps no better time to look at lakes in the city than now. Lakes (Hesaraghatta, for instance) had once been the lifeline of the city – and most of our drinking water came from a system of tanks conceived centuries ago. Now, however, many are reduced to cesspools of sewage, or their peripheries littered with garbage, or filled with silt reducing any chance of these water bodies recharging the depleting groundwater. Also, apart from affecting citizens directly, unhealthy lakes also seen flora and fauna of the ecosystem disappearing. CLICK TO READ MORE...............
