Well today I am officially appointed as one of the contributors of this blog.
Many many thanks to Abhay and kudos to him for taking the first step towards bringing together the Bangalore Yesplus gang ONLINE!
There are a lot of Yes+ guys out there with a lot of talent may it be of writing,painting,singing,sports, playing instruments(muscial ahem!) and what not! It is hardly possible for one to know each and every person and how good he/she is in what he/she is doing!
Also at one point of time there are a lot of events happening simulataneously(some tree plantation,a great satsang somewhre,a fotball match , a trip to somewhere etc..) all over Bangalore.
To put all these things somewhere where everyone can know about it is a great idea. Unfortunately a physical congregation of sorts will be too restricting and limiting.
Here enters the idea of a blog! If all the YES+ people join as contributors to this blog and post relevant articles it would not only be interesting but also inspiring to others. And new members of the family can easily know what all events are taking place and join them.
A dream for this blog can be that every YES+ graduate soon after coming online looks up for a new article on this blog( of course after checking your Orkut,Facebook,Myspace,twitter,Hi5,Xanga,BEbo….accounts( pardon me if I have missed some!))
First We need to design a cool header for this blog and as such I don’t have any great high-res pics of YES+ bangalore ppl having loads of fun.The image should be full of energy and joy. If anyone of you have it then please send it to me @ firstname.lastname@example.org . ( or you can provide a link in the comments area)
Lets spread the word and I invite everyone to be on the editorial of this blog.
It was a great time in the first week of new year in the YES!+ in Jayangar!
This was the condition of one fire put on a garbage near the petrol pump opposite Honda Showroom next to Woodys hotel, on the road from BTM to Banashankari:
As usual, YES!+ volunteers didn’t just ignore the situation, but took prompt action. With the help of nearby people we procured water and put off the fire:
Upon closer examination, we noticed that some medical associated company/hospital/ college or whatever, had dumped its outdated stock of thousands of medicine packets:-
Medicines have chemicals of a variety of types. Can you imagine how much harmful the fumes out of burning of these chemicals be?
In the city it has become a practise to burn the garbage instead of disposing them off the city limits. Is BBMP inefficient in collection and removal of garbage? Apart from damage to environment, the immediate residents are most affected with fumes, which keep coming hours after the fire has got switched off, due to incomplete burning. Will the residents take action?
On one side, waste segregation has been started, as in Europe:- putting up the different types of wastes in different containers, at the point of collection itself, to ease the recycling process. On the other hand, the waste is not properly being collected and disposed off.
Will the media take notice of these activities?
Will you, as a responsible citizen go out and put off such fire and educate the people who are setting it up??
Jammu and Kashmir governor NN Vohra reconstituted the Shri Amarnath Shrine Board (SASB) on Wednesday by appointing six new members and meeting one of the key demands of the Shri Amarnath Sangarsh Simiti (SASS), which led a two-month-long agitation against revocation of the land deal.
The new members include Art of Living founder Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and renowned santoor maestro Pandit Bhajan Sopori, noted environmentalist and director, Centre for Science and Environment, Sunita Narain and renowned Sanskrit scholar Dr Ved Kumari Ghai.
Other members include Rajya Sabha member and founder director of Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts Dr Kapila Vatsyayan and former judge of the J&K high court justice GD Sharma.
They have been appointed for a period of three years with immediate effect, said Raj Bhawan spokesman Madan Mantoo.
