Today, when visiting the lake, Usha found that seven young Thespesia saplings (trees now) mostly from the lot that was planted in July and tended with such care, a few of them even budding, have been callously broken by miscreants. Going by the freshness of the leaves, it looks like it must have happened late yesterday evening. Our sweeper informs us that this is the work of children living in the slum on the lake bund.
The challenges now - tending the wounded saplings, dealing with the miscreants, pushing for relocation of the slum...
Pursuing BBMP and others concerned for securing the lake area is in progress.
