Oct 2nd 2014 was a historic day for the nation when our PM Modi called for Swachh Bharat. Feb 5th promises to be the historic day for our ward when our MLA, Shri Aravind Limbavali in presence of our Corporator Asha Suresh and our JC BBMP, Mr Umanand Rai will launch the plastic ban and 100% segregation enforcement campaign in our ward, 150, Bellandur. With your help, we can make both a reality in our ward in the next 90 days. Facebook event https://www.facebook.com/events/1059592080752912/

On 5th, the walkathon congregation time is 3.30pm and location is Kaikondrahalli Lake gate (opp fire station). We have some slogans and songs in english and kannada and volunteers will teach the same to all that we can sing during walkathon. Our MLA will then kick off the walkathon. We will walk with our MLA to HDFC bank junction in Green Glen Layout, informing all the shops on the way about the impending ban and need for segregation at source. (100% shops and communities will be covered by 20th feb). Join when you can if your kids school bus lands post 3.30pm. If the ban poster is still not up on your notice board, do put it up. https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2BT3qs8MXnqcVpSQUN5NjhlZjA

Do turn up with your family and hand made posters (no flex banners please). Carry your cloth bag and a water bottle. A mug or steel tumbler if you want coffee on the way. Also invite your friends and colleagues to join the same. Get kids in the community to come together and make the posters like Jasmine, Bhuvna Green and RBR has done. And of course get our volunteers invited to your school, colleges, offices and communities to do “trash talk” over the next month.

What will be banned? https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B2BT3qs8MXnqMk9ubWNINFgtbTg

There will be a stall from 8th in the ward where retailers can come and view these alternatives and find the list of vendors for the same. If you know of any NGOs who make any of these alternatives, do put them in touch with us. We will also include their products n contact information in the stall. If you know any wholesalers in the ward who currently stock these alternatives, give us that list too. Nudge the plastic wholesalers to move to stocking these products. There was a traders meet on 3rd feb and another one next week too.

With BBMP’s support, we will do education/ awareness drive till 20th followed by an enforcement drive from 21st feb. Bellandur is one of the largest wards and we have ~ 50 volunteers currently registered with us to cover the ward. Hence we have split it into 5 zones and have lead volunteers for each zone. If you would like to join and cover your neighbourhood, do write to the lead volunteer for your area.

Ganesh Chaturthi is the birthday of Lord Ganesha, the elephant-headed
Hindu God. As we all know, He is a very popular god in India and has
become a popular symbol around the world too. Ganesha in different art
forms has broken many boundaries of caste, race, religion, and nation
and has found a space in many living rooms around the world. He is a
favorite among the children too. The story of his birth and the
variety of delicacies made on this day are enjoyable for children.
Over the last few decades, there has been a considerable shift in our
societies across the country from celebrating the festival in a
traditional way to a more ostentatious occasion, with little regard to
the socio-economic, cultural and environmental impacts.
The workshop is aimed at helping children identify the traditional and
historical significance, ways in which it was celebrated in the past, the
importance of the traditional foods made on this day and ways in
which the festival can be celebrated without causing harm to the
environment around us.
The workshop will take children through interesting stories,
songs, videos, making clay idols, learning to make traditional
decorations such as rangoli, stringing of flowers etc, learning to
make traditional foods, learning through some traditional games
and more importantly learning to take responsibility towards
mother earth in celebrations
