Forum > Any other > Garden City of India - Bangalore Unlivable by 2025 if deprived of clean air and water

Posted by Susan Sharma on December 09, 2023


This is the title of a video I made in 2017, after seeing the Bellandur lake catch fire.  

"By 2020, 93% of Bengaluru’s landscape would be filled with paved surfaces. This drastic reduction in open and green spaces would make the region rich with green house gases, water-scarce, non-resilient and unliveable, depriving the city-dwellers of clean air, water and environment."  a report from IISC said this

In the 1970s, there were still 285 lakes in the city, making it self-sufficient in its water needs. Today, however, there are just 194 lakes, and the large majority of them are sewage-fed. The rest have been lost to encroachments.

Have things improved in Bangalore since?  Welcome comments from Bangaloreans on the you tube video link given below.
