Bangalore Lake Diaries

May 2013

Bangalore was once called the city of a 1000 lakes. Over time, we lost most of our lakes to urbanization, sewage dumping, encroachment and rapid development. 

This community film made by The Alternative and Korkai chronicles the pioneering lake conservation efforts undertaken by the city to combat the water crisis by preserving its only freshwater source - lakes.
