Day spent at Tumkur discussing Water

Shiv 'Nira Nischinte' (ನೀರ ನಿಶ್ಚಿಂತೆ) or loosely translated - 'Peace of mind with Water' is the slogan we chose for the Kannada version of Water Portal (which is funded by Arghyam), and also as the title of the event we planned surrounding it. We just had the third edition of the 'Nira Nischinte' event at Tumkur yesterday. The first one was at Dharwad, the second at Mangalore.

Gearing up for the "World Water Day"

A chat conversation that became a discussion between friends, later became an idea for a meet-up! On March 22nd, we are meeting up near maDivaLa lake (Bangalore), to celebrate the day. This would be a Kannada Water Portal event, so expect lots of discussion in Kannada! :-) There are also several efforts on to bring a cycling track to maDivaLa lake and to get the lake cleaned up. The event could also add up to the support towards these efforts. Like to join in?

A morning spent watching "good" Kannada Cinema

"ಮುಖಾಮುಖಿ"

For years now, we've had very less of quality films in Kannada, and here is one cinema that is good on quality, but never got to the theatres. Distributors here fancy films that have songs, dance and crazy fights which on most occasions merely are low quality mockery of Bollywood/Hollywood. Sadly, it is the song and dance films that bring in huge moolah for them as art films go untried.
