Save the biggest lungspace of Bengaluru!
Saving Biopark is the greatest gift for our children. It is Oxygen Bank, Water Reserve & Geoscience Educational spot. Birds, Butterflies & crores of living organisms beneath soil. Medicinal plants, Charaka-Shushrta vana, Triphala vana. More than anything it is an answer for Carbon sequestration, Global Warming & River Rejuvenation as Microhydroclimatalogical region formed already. Let's save it please. Happy that I could work in Biopark activities with the guidance of Dr. A N Yellappareddy. Biopark is the result of many Philonthropists helping hands.
Government had allotted thousands of acres to Bangalore University with an intention of creating an Educational atmosphere. Exposures of 3200 million year old rocks to recent episodes of Earth history is identified as requested by the High court of Karnataka.
Students of different departments are expected to utilise the campus for their field knowledge. Studies of Botanical, Zoological, Geological, Environmental, Hydrological, Microbial Science; Green Economics, Forest produces, Sociological, Rural Development of Arts wing; Commercial & Managerial aspects by Commerce & Management wing, Environmental Law, protection of Natural resources by Law faculties; Physical work are educating about Nature by Education faculty is happening in the campus. Lot of educational orientations creeped into syllabi. Due to public demand, the Government finally swung into action & ordered University to protect crores worth property & declared entire Jnanabharathi as Biopark vide notification during 2017.
Keeping this in mind, water bodies and diversified plantations were brought and created a Micro Hydroclimatic region. University campus is a house of huge varieties of birds and butterflies. A beautiful fruit garden with 160 varieties and 3000 fruit bearing plants are part of Biopark in the campus. Rare and endangered varieties have been budding with a vision of seed bank and gene bank available in the campus.
It is unfortunate that the vested, unsuitable, self centered, money minded administration has allowed hundreds of acres of encroachment, artificial failure of court cases, spoiling of Environment, concrete jungle creation, cutting valuable trees, dumping city debris & created havoc.
Humbly request Government to not only withdraw the land leased to any organisation after Government notification in the year 2017 & also issue order for only vertical growth without loosing an inch of lung space. This is the only gift to our future generations to come & kindly issue the necessary orders that nobody should dare enough to touch lung spaces. The Jnanabharathi has already contributed towards the valuable gift to children by creating beautiful Environmental & protection of Biopark. The offenders should also be punished with the stringent laws. Let's follow the method of "Housing an University in Diversified Green & amidst Water bodies".
Any amount of money we save or multiply can't fetch as sufficient oxygen required for even a week's survival. And, creating/supplying oxygen to crores of living beings of varied species, according to its respective requirements, all of these, at a time, is beyond what words can explain. Nature and trees are doing it freely for us. We need to be thankful and kind. We have enormously learnt, understood the need and value of oxygen especially during COVID times. Please join hands and sign the petition, share to get more signatures and Save the biggest lungspace of Bengaluru!
