Let’s nurture Lalbagh

In the light of the recent spate of tree felling, it’s even more important in this scenario to at least preserve the existing parks and green spaces we have (or soon we won’t have much left).

There’s a “Lets Nurture Lalbagh” cleaning and Awareness Program being held on March 16 morning. Do participate if you can!

What’s being planned:

# A run from Vidhan Soudha or Cubbon Park to Lalbagh

# 5000 volunteers show their sensitivity to nature, love for Bangalore, clean Lalbagh

# An Antique Car Rally inside Lalbagh and onto Raj Bhavan

I don’t have details on the exact time yet and will update as soon as I get it.

    I am so glad someone is doing something. I love Lalbaugh, it is my favourite place in Bangalore. By the way did you notice the lake (lotus pond) has gone to ruin again, it is dirty and the hycanth is back – which means the moor hens are back as well (the only silver lining).I read it now, else would have participated.Hope it went well.

    What I cannot understand is how can people who care for Lalbagh hold an antique car rally inside Lalbagh? Starting the rally from the gates of Lalbagh is acceptable, but not having it within the gardens. Vehicles are not allowed inside, except for those of Government babus working in the horticulture department offices located inside Lalbagh. Not only will it disturb the peace of this place, it will also set a very bad precedent for others to follow. We have already seen Cubbon Park go this way, becoming a protest/rally park. It’s high time that we treat this place as a botanical garden rather than a picnic or a municipal park. It’s the only place we have!
