Bangalore, a quaint town has emerged as a leading IT hub inviting national and multinational firms and professionals from all over India. Calling Bangalore aka Bengaluru as a city with heterogeneous population from across various tradition and culture will not be a far fetched statement. Bangalore airport which was earlier associated with the Indian Air Force predominantly has now turned out to be an active hub known as Kempegowda International Airport inviting international airlines to make a halt over here. It is now possible to travel to Middle East, London, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hong Kong, Singapore, Bangkok and many more popular international destinations from here.

As a pet parent, we have been postponing our vacation and holidays meant staying at home indoors with our Labrador. The immediate thought of leaving her in the mercy of friends switches off our plans and it is only if it is unavoidable we go out of the city leaving her with our friend to take care of her in our absence at our home because she does not like to be away in another place without us. It is not an easy task to find someone to take care of her in our absence with the same love and attention we give her. Now it is good news for pet parents like us, we can take our pet along with us for the vacation. Thanks to CollarFolk, an innovative idea by a pet parent Rukmini Vaish.
We could not move on without appreciating the cute logo of CollarFolk (wagging tail) which speaks volume about their love for pets.
A first-timer would love to classify Mathur, about 10 km from Shimoga in Karnataka, as yet another “sleepy village with lush green fields’. But, there is more to this village than stately arecanut farms, winding roads and friendly people.

Heart diseases require treatment and many times surgery and long term therapy. But the cost of treatment is also pretty high and unaffordable by many. This treatment cost can touch few lakhs today. While browsing on Facebook I found a page where children below the age of 10 years would be getting free treatment for any kind of Cardiac or Neurological problem. This service is done by SRI SATYA SAI INSTITUTE OF HIGHER MEDICAL SCIENCES, Bangalore, India. We cross verified the information and confirmed the information is true. Read on to know more…
I visited Storyrevolution.in and found the love of books running in the site. For a reader, the reviews and a brief idea about the book and the age group matters before attempting to buy a book. And used books are always a better option for book aficionado and people who have scoured waste paper marts and second-hand book shops will understand this better. We want to appreciate this effort at a time when children are addicted to their phones and tablets and not going to libraries, and the initiative by Angela Jain and Shalini Sekhar trying to change this.
They are dreaming of a better, environmentally-sensitive world. Final-year students of the mechanical department of MVJ College of Engineering in Bengaluru have developed a hybrid auotrickshaw that runs on 80 percent water and 20 percent LPG.
The project is an attempt to improve fuel efficiency and to decrease carbon emissions by Ashok M, Jagadish Gunde, Mahantesh Hiremath and Manoj. The vehicle was converted into a ‘hybrid auto’ using the available oxyhydrogen technology. It does not replace water with fuel, but enhances the efficiency of a fossil fuel-based engine by using the stored energy in water.

In Tulu, ‘Pili’ means tiger and ‘kula’ means pond. According to a legend, free roaming tigers frequented a watering hole in the vicinity and hence the name Pilikula.
