How a small Karnataka village took Mahatma Gandhi by surprise with its Khadi movement: Story of Badanavalu

On the occasion of the 153rd Mahatma Gandhi Jayanti Sunday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi paid tributes to the Father of the Nation at Badanavalu village in Karnataka and vowed to unify India. What is the historical significance of this small village, located around 33 km away from Mysore, which had pleasantly surprised even Mahatma Gandhi?

Badanavalu houses a spinning centre popularly known as Badanavalu Khadi Kendra. Mysuru king Nalwadi Krishnaraja Wodeyar established it in 1927 as part of the Swadeshi movement. It began operations with four Dalit women and an aim to uplift the economic conditions of Dalits.

According to Professor Nirmal Raj of Mangalore University, the centre, which at one point had 60 women and nine male weavers and an investment of Rs 3,500, was making Khadi worth Rs 50,000 by 1932. This meteoric rise of the Swadeshi establishment impressed Mahatma Gandhi. Read the full story here

Political Pulse | In Karnataka, a cycle of violence, killings linked to PFI

Three days after the July 26 murder of BJP youth leader Praveen Nettaru, 32, in the communally polarised Dakshina Kannada region, with the first two suspects arrested, Karnataka Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai suggested that the killing was possibly linked to the PFI.

Saying that the state government had sought a ban on the PFI a few months earlier, following the February murder of Bajrang Dal worker Harsha Hindu, 27, in the Shivamogga region — a killing in which the state police suspected a PFI hand — Bommai said, “We have sent the reports and evidence necessary for banning such organisations to the Centre. The process has begun. You will hear a decision on this from the Centre at the earliest. The ban has to be done across the country,” Read more

Lakes of Bengaluru: The recent showers filled this lake to its brim and unearthed a network of choked drains

Spread in 11.07 acre, the Lakshmisagara lake located in Lakshmisagara village adjoining Chandapura in Bengaluru was filled to the brim with rain water on August 30 for the first time in 25 years after the unprecedented rainfall in the month of August. Once known for lotus flowers blooming in the lake, local villagers have highlighted the worsening condition of the lake and pointed out that there have been encroachments of the lake by private parties.

The waste weir of this lake was in a dilapidated condition and even the drains connecting the lake were choked for decades. Captain Santhosh Kumar (Retd), founder of Anekal Environment Protection Federation, said, “This is what I call the power of nature. The waste weir of the lake was in a dilapidated condition for more than two decades. People were not even aware about the drains connecting the lake since it was blocked. During the heavy rainfall in August, the blockages were finally removed by the villagers to allow the water to flow through it or else the nearby areas and roads would have been inundated.” Learn more...

Techie, friend let off in drunk driving case after Bengaluru police failed to follow procedure

A software engineer and his associate, who were accused by the Bengaluru traffic police of allegedly hitting a policeman and booked for drunken driving in the city in April 2017, were let off by the Karnataka high court as the police failed to follow the prescribed norms for registering drunken driving cases and collecting fines.
