Ganga Madappa, Staff Reporter and Community Manager at Citizen Matters, writes:

Here’s a side of the Ulsoor lake that not too many people notice. To the left of the kalyani at the lake, is a storm water drain that comes all the way from Richards Town. And along with rain water, it also carries an unimaginable amount of filth. Plastic, clothes, shoes, leaf litter etc make their way into the water. Workers clearing this filth claim to have found even pillows and suitcases… 
This alone makes for a strong case for the city authorities to enforce waste segregation.
