Death knell for citizen-led lake governance 3.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Bengaluru has become a bit notorious globally as videos of Bellandur lake catching fire and its froth blocking roads over the past couple of years have gone viral. But Bengaluru's lakes are also famous for another reason: the enormous citizen activism that has led to the protection, rejuvenation and beautification of many of its lakes, and the continued citizen efforts to save and revive the remaining ones. While Hebbal highlights citizen resistance to lake privatisation, lakes such as Kaikondrahalli, Puttenahalli and Jakkur have become success stories of partnerships between the municipal government and local citizen groups, where the former contributes resources and the latter contribute location-specific ideas, awareness building and monitoring. Unfortunately, the state government seems bent on destroying this slow progress towards decentralised and democratic environmental governance. Last week, it announced that all of Bengaluru's lakes would be handed over to the Minor Irrigation Department (MID). ...

PM's visit to Israel to strengthen ties 2.7.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Tel Aviv and Jerusalem next week will complete India's move to relink its relations with Israel and Palestine. The prime minister's visit to Israel will see India and the West Asian nation elevating their relations to a strategic partnership, stepping up cooperation in defence, homeland security, cybersecurity, agriculture, water, space, health, innovation as well as research and development. Modi and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu are likely to announce a joint fund for encouraging private companies of the two nations to focus more on innovation and research and development.

Indian dignitaries visiting Israel in the past had made it a point to visit Palestine, too. President Pranab Mukherjee visited both Israel and Palestine in October 2015. External Affairs Minister, Sushma Swaraj, too, visited ...
