Learning about Bengaluru’s lakes

And reporting on them. This was a fascinating story to cover. I learned a lot about community activism in Bangalore, about governmental bodies (for better and for worse), and about the neighborhood I’m living in. Take a look here.

After decades of delays and legal complications, the finish line for Mestripalya Lake is in sight—but just out of reach. The lake, located in Koramangala 3rd Block in East Bengaluru, is ready to receive water, but until the project is transferred from the BDA to the BBMP, it cannot be filled.

I’ve also had the privilege of shooting my own photos for assignments, so check those out too!
