Express News ServiceBENGALURU: First things first, declare Cubbon Park as a heritage site.
Cubbon Park is Bangalore’s green lungs, around for centuries, and has dwindling from 300+ acres to 198 acres today, primarily because of encroachments, hasty decisions and corrections.
We are certainly not moving towards a Technology Park version of Cubbon Park, no way.
The visceral impact Cubbon Park has on us was evident in the large turnout for the first public discussion on the smart city project, held incongruously in the historic bandstand in the middle of Cubbon Park where we could see exactly what we could lose.
Perhaps in that path lies our salvation – having a sustainable natural focus to maintain and improve Cubbon Park rather than any smart interventions.
