KSRTC to revive rainwater harvesting systems 22.5.2015 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) will revive defunct rainwater harvesting systems in its existing depots and also make the system mandatory for all upcoming buildings under it.

Touted as “ the new kale ”, it’s popping up everywhere, from restaurant menus – with crab, cucumber and dill at Kitty Fisher’s ; hake and pak choi at Grain Store in King’s Cross, and in butter at The Sportsman in Kent – to, as of this week, Tesco’s veg aisle.
