There once was a city named Bangalore,
Which swalpa adjusted more and more,
When they came for the trees,
They confused the bees,
And the garden city is now folklore.

Whether you call it Bengalooru, Bengaluru, Bangalore, or the Ooru – join us in our protest against the elevated corridor.
Urban projects that have been depleting Bengaluru’s green cover, have taken their toll, and the proposed elevated corridor is the worst of the lot. It would remove Cubbon Park from the map, along with 3,700 trees.
Sign the petition here.
Note: If you’re in town you can also participate in the rally against the elevated corridor slated for this Saturday, 16th March. Details here.
