Halasuru Lake

See the condition of the Halasuru lake, one of few lakes left in Bengaluru. These photos were taken on 26th April 2015. You can also see people catching fish and taking home. There is also an official fish stall which sells the fish there. With lake water contaminated, i doubt those fish are edible. While we were taking these snaps we found people dumping the ashes and other pooja stuff with lot of plastic in them to lake.

These photos were shot on my Moto E.

Kannada

ಕನ್ನಡ ಭಾಷೆ ಮತ್ತು ಅದರ ಸ್ವಚ್ಛತೆ…

ಹಾಗೆ ಸುಮ್ಮನೆ… ಇ ಆಲೋಚನೆ ಬಂತು. ಕನ್ನಡ  ಭಾಷೆ ಹುಟ್ಟುವಾಗಲೇ neat ಅಗಿತ್ತ ಅಥವಾ ಆಮೇಲೆ neat ಆಯ್ತಾ… ಆಡು ಭಾಷೆ ಮಾತಾಡ್ತಾ ಮಾತಾಡ್ತಾ ಆದ್ರೆ, ಬಾಷೆಗೆ ನುಣುಪು ಹೇಗೆ ಬಂತು? ಮೊದಲು ಲಿಪಿ ಬಂತ ಅಥವಾ ಆಡು ಬಾಷೆ ಇತ್ತ?

ನಾವೆಲ್ಲಾ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಉದ್ದಾರಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಏನು ಮಾಡ್ತಾ ಇದ್ದೀವಿ? ಕನ್ನಡದ ಸದ್ಬಳಕೆ ಆಗ್ತಿದೆಯ. ಇಂದಿನ FM Channelಗಳ (ಕಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್, ಕಂದಿ, ಕಮಿಳ್…. ) ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡ ಕನ್ನಡವಾಗಿಯೆ ಉಳಿಯುವುದೇ? ಇ ತರಹದ mixingನ  ಅವಶ್ಯಕತೆ ಇದೆಯಾ…. ಇದು ಬಾಷೆಯ ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆಯೇ?

ಬೆಂಗ್ಳೂರಲ್ಲಿ ಇವತ್ತು ದಿನಸಿ ತರೋಕೆ ಕೂಡ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷೋ ಹಿಂದಿನೋ ಅಥವಾ ತಮಿಳು ಗೊತ್ತಿರಬೇಕು. ಬೆಂಗ್ಳೂರಿನ ಕತೆ ಇಷ್ಟೆನಾ?

write or read

am a newbie in this blog world. though i had attempted writing earlier, couldn’t write. infact couldn’t continue. i guess work and all other things in life made did not permit to do it.
now am planning to do it continuosly… also i want to improve my english… when i asked my dear freind vishwa about some good books on english writing, he told me

Kitti, Elements of Style is a must. It is a small book, but has a great deal of information in it. The Pen commandments by Steven Frank is a nice read. On Writing Well by William Zinsser is also a good book. There are many more, but this will suffice.

hopefully i’ll buy one of these books. one more hiccup here… if i buy a book… i have to start reading 🙂 what shall i do… start writing or reading…. confused….
