Water Literacy

Today’ issue of Bangalore Mirror carried a cover story regarding acute shortage of water in the suburbs and upcoming areas of Bangalore. And I stumbled upon a report on how a private high school in Sirsi, in northern Karnataka is teaching practical water literacy to the people of five Malnad districts. The rain centre at the school, with 28 examples of rain water harvesting, opened in early June. More details. here Exemplary stuff.

  1. Hi
    I wish these tabloids tutor new Bangaloreans like me on how to pickup the local language (Kannada). Some basic practical examples like talking to autodrivers, busconductors, maids, the dukaanwalah etc. of course many times lot of people know english or hindi, but some practical examples are still necessary. Most of my colleagues are north indians or non-locals and are all in the same boat. as for the locals, they all know hindi.. so no chance for people like us to learn Kannada.
