In order to ensure sufficient drinking water to animals in forest, Karnataka Forest department, along with CSS Corp, a global leader in technology support, has come up with a novel initiative, 'Tiger Tank Waterhole', in Antharasanthe Forest Range, under Nagarahole Tiger Reserve (NTR). The Tiger Tank Waterhole is a solar-powered water pump installed to a borewell to lift water. The solar-powered borewell consists of 17 solar panels, delivering a total of 5,100 Watts of power to the pump when there is sunshine. The water is fed to the waterhole, a source of drinking water for animals. The water would also help fight forest fires.

The Venkatappa Art Gallery (VAG) forum is organising an 'art marathon' till May 11 as a unique form of protest against the alleged efforts to privatise the gallery. It is different from a usual exhibition in that every artist will get exactly 45 minutes to display their work. Each day is divided into 9 slots and each slot will have 4 to 5 artists at one time. Works on display include cartoons, paintings and installations which combined creativity, individualism and in some cases, technical expertise. The work of Surekha, artist and VAGforum member, is one such example. She has created a video project called 'Follow the sound of the river' which includes microscopic images of water molecules. Surekha collaborated with artists from around the world and they sent her water samples from places like Switzerland, China, the US etc for her project. These samples were collected from different sources of water like taps, lakes, rivers and even rain. H A Anil Kumar, a teacher of art history at Karnataka Chitrakala ...
