Some 500 years ago, when Kempegowda founded Bengaluru, he dotted it with numerous water bodies. The trend continued in modern times, earning it the sobriquet – City of Lakes. But Bengaluru’s lakes are in a deplorable condition today. Currently, only 34 of the original 262 lakes remain ‘alive’.
Meet Anand Malligavad, a 38-year-old techie from Bengaluru who has rejuvenated 3 lakes so far-his first one was completed in just 45 days! And now he has a plan to revive 45 lakes in the city by 2025! Join The Better India in helping him reach this goal
