Puttenahalli Lake finds mention among Karnataka's 15 ideas

From today's Independence Day issue of The Times Of India newspaper:  
"Independence Day is not just about looking back and saluting the people who won us our freedom. It is also about looking ahead at forces that are shaping our futures and at ideas that can bring long-lasting change."

TOI looks at 15 ideas from Karnataka that it believes have "freshness, innovation, the ability to be scaled and replicated, and potential impact".
  
Happy to see Save Bangalore Lakes Trust and the lakes movement as one of the 15 recognised ideas. And noteworthy that PNLIT/ Puttenahalli Lake finds mention in two places. The epaper can be seen here


PNLIT and Puttenahalli Lake are surviving because of your support. In case you have not yet contributed to PNLIT's donation drive, details are below. Let us work together to make this "idea" a truly sustaining one.
