If preventive measures are not taken chances are there that
Bangalore will become a desert in the next 10-15 years.
Suresh Heblikar, who was a guest speaker in the joint meeting with Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar, threw light on the burning problems of Bangalore.
He recollected how the beautiful landscapes that were used for film shootings have now turned into industrial plots. While he appreciated the need for industrialization, he also expressed his concern on the depleting water resources and exponential growth of population in Bangalore.
 
He cautioned that this planet may not last for more than 10 years if global warming and environmental issues are not addressed. He also remembered presonalities like Gandhi and Saate who were pro eco friendly.
He cited the example of  Kogilu village where the water level has come up substantially and said that efforts to save eco balance will result in water sources also.
He suggested to change the agriculture pattern from monoculture to bio diversity culture. He suggested to all eco friendly people to read “ GOLDEN POND” written by  Thoro.
Many members of our club participated and the guest remembered that a video on “Aids presentation” was produced by our Rotary Bangalore South, which was first of its Kind in the country. Rtn. Sridhar B.R, President handed over the memento on behalf of the club.
