Dear Friends,

BSAP Talk by Lubna Sarwath
Connecting with Water Bodies in Your Vicinities 
Wednesday, 16 November 2016
6:30pm, Hamburg Hall GZH

Entry: Free & Open to All


ABOUT THE TALK
Our city Hyderabad is home to water bodies in which senior citizens claim to have swam and fished.  If so, which of water bodies can the present generation and the coming, swim and fish in?  Encroachments, Change of Land Use in name of development, Sewage-Chemical-Garbage-Pharma pollution in name of industrialization, Cultural immersions in name of religion have all rendered our water bodies shrinking and stinking. Lifeline thus turns into Hazard.  While quality of lakes gets abysmal by the day and the number of lakes keeps dwindling in each official list, it is up to the citizens to reverse the trend.
