Kannada Water Portal

Day spent at Tumkur discussing Water hpn March 16, 2009 - 13:32
Shiv 'Nira Nischinte' (ನೀರ ನಿಶ್ಚಿಂತೆ) or loosely translated - 'Peace of mind with Water' is the slogan we chose for the Kannada version of Water Portal (which is funded by Arghyam), and also as the title of the event we planned surrounding it. We just had the third edition of the 'Nira Nischinte' event at Tumkur yesterday. The first one was at Dharwad, the second at Mangalore.

Gearing up for the "World Water Day"

A chat conversation that became a discussion between friends, later became an idea for a meet-up! On March 22nd, we are meeting up near maDivaLa lake (Bangalore), to celebrate the day. This would be a Kannada Water Portal event, so expect lots of discussion in Kannada! :-) There are also several efforts on to bring a cycling track to maDivaLa lake and to get the lake cleaned up. The event could also add up to the support towards these efforts.
A Survey hpn December 10, 2008 - 09:11
Arghyam Survey The other week, I was a curious participant in the concluding session of the recent training program Arghyam had organized to train non-profits participating in a state-wide survey they've planned. As someone who's helping out with Kannada version of the India Water Portal, I was very curious to see how they have planned the project and how they're going to execute this.
