Election fever

U

nlike a decade ago when elections were characterised by posters and blaring horns crowding public spaces, the elections today are a subdued affair. I prefer the olden days because the election fever can only be felt when all your five senses are bombarded with information. In HSR Layout, the road shows by all the political parties were confined to the main roads, leaving all the residents who stay off these roads like me completely clueless about who is standing for elections. Ofcourse, there were the pamphlets alerting us on who is contesting from each party. But then, nothing like some personal touch when you can examine a candidate’s body language and dialogue delivery. Since HSR Layout is largely populated by out-of-town IT and ITES employees, I would reckon that over 30% of the votes go wasted across the country. Ofcourse, there is the postal ballot, but only for the government employees who are posted on election duty. It is about time, we were allowed to cast our vote online. This would ensure that fewer votes are wasted. This time around, there were ten contenders for the Bommanahalli constituency, out of which only sitting BJP MLA Satish Reddy is an old horse. Everyone else is a newcomer, but representing well-known parties like the Congress (Nagabhushana C), Janata Dal Secular (R Sharaschandra), Karnataka Janata Paksha (B Ramesh Reddy), Bahujan Samaj Party (Afsar Pasha), Badavara Shramikara Raitara Sangha (Srinivas ST) and Lok Satta (Ashwin Mahesh). There were three independents too – Yogesh Devaraj, Nagabhushan R and SN Jagadish Reddy. Some voters did not want vote because they felt all were worthless, while other voters were more responsible and voted the best of the worst. Some voted for the candidate, and some for the party. But most rural voters voted on the basis of caste, creed and colour. The results were not out at the time of going to Press. But I hope the best candidate wins and fulfills all his promises. We will carry his in-depth interview in our June 2013 issue. Until then, keep your frown upside down.

Funding higher education Here are a few ways of going about it By Dr L Ravindran

In this column, we analyse the financial implications of young men and women who want to pursue higher studies in the midst of their career. Generally, higher education is pursued by one who feels that her/ his education is inadequate considering the demands on their job role and to pursue career growth in an organisational hierarchy. At a younger age, the savings are generally low and you have to avail financial help from a relative (parents/brother/sister…) to meet this need. Let us take the example of a 26-year-old working for an established firm in a junior management role at a salary of Rs 25,000 a month. He now wishes to pursue a weekend post graduation course for a year. The average cost of such a programme is about Rs 2.50 lakhs spread over the year. Hopefully, the chosen institute is high in its ranking, acceptability, course delivery and so on, so it helps him meet his long-term objectives. It is preferable that the plan to go for higher studies is finalised after proper planning and streamlining of your own finances rather than rushing out to embrace a course by kicking out the job-in-hand. Here are a few options you could consider... (A) Funding fees using your relative/s (1) Loans can be availed from a traditional life insurance policy. To avail a loan of Rs 2.50. lakhs, the amount paid into the policy account should be closer to Rs 5 lakhs at a minimum and at least three years should have been completed in paying the past premium. Such an option can be exercised only from a close relative or parent’s life insurance policy. However, the interest on the loan needs to be serviced, half yearly, at about 9% pa and the principal should be paid back to the relative on mutually acceptable terms. (2) Withdrawal/loans can be availed from a public provident fund (PPF) when more than seven years have passed since the opening of the account. However, the total accumulation should be about Rs 7.50 lakhs to avail the loan as only 25% of the 4th year balances are granted as a loan initially. (3) Utilise the free balance in your bank account to pay the fees directly. (B) Funding on your own (1) Educational loan from a bank. The loan repayment in an equated monthly installment (EMI) begins six months after passing out of the course with a moratorium (cooling period) during the course period. The loans are generally expensive and sometimes require pledging of property/investments with a guarantor in the form of a blood relative. The documentation can be cumbersome and the waiting period is sometimes longer depending on the surety produced. (2) Recurring deposit: it is possible that about 40% of the monthly salary (Rs 10,000) is saved in a recurring deposit in a public sector bank. A recurring deposit with earnings of 9% for a year shall help accumulate a corpus of Rs 1.26 lakhs, which can be utilised to pay a part of the fees. If planned well, a two-year Recurring Deposit can help in accumulating Rs 2.64 lakhs to fund the education programme fully. And finally… Alternate options like investing funds in equities/ gold can be risky as the principal can be lower than the invested amount when the deadline nears and therefore should be avoided. Borrowing through credit card and personal loans can be highly expensive. Good luck in your educational endeavours!

‘We would like to band with other associations and be a force to reckon with’

Abraham Verghese, Secretary, Fernhill Gardens Apartment Owners Association

By our feature writer

H The corporator hasn’t done any special favour to us. Even a simple thing like cleaning up the common drain in front of Fernhill has not happened yet.

20| May 2013

aving lived in Mumbai, Abraham Verghese (64) knew all about the building bylaws. Which helped him when he came to reside in HSR Layout’s Fernhill Gardens in 1996. “It was the first apartment block in the area at the time,” he says, proudly. “Many other apartments that came up later took our building bylaws and made it their own.” As the founder secretary of Fernhill Gardens Apartment Owners Association, Verghese is running it smoothly from the day they set it up. That’s also because 50% of the 264 flats are occupied by the owners themselves. Over to him… Tell us some of your building bylaws that have worked well for you? Though we have 264 flats, even 15 flat owners can give a notice and call for a special AGM (Annual General Meeting) where the matter will be discussed and settled. An AGM can be held with just 15 people to change any bylaw. The bad side of running things well is that not too many people come to such meetings because they have no grouses to talk about because we ensure there’s good housekeeping and maintenance. We have three electricians working on eighthour shifts, two plumbers and a panel of consultants who take charge of maintenance. We painted the building in 2008 ResidentsWATCH

and refurbished the lifts, spending Rs 70 lakh. Apart from that, we have incurred no major expense. We don’t face any of the problems faced by a few other apartments because we have divided the year into four quarters. People give us three post-dated cheques 15 days before the quarter begins. Any price revision is done on an annual basis after the annual general body meeting, which is in April or May every year. Tell us about your association? We are a committee of 11 people comprising the president, secretary, treasurer and eight other members. Every two years, we have elections. Three people will be co-opted to maintain continuity when a new committee is sworn in. What kind of residential mix do you have? About 15% are above 60 years; about 70% are from 25-55 years. About 60% of them are working people, and largely from the IT sector. We have about 1000 people and can be a major force whenever we make a representation to the government. We would like to band with other residential and apartment associations and be a force to reckon with. The numbers will be too important to be ignored and every corporator and MLA will listen to us. We would like to be part of the Sector 6 Residents Welfare Association, and be part of the Federation of HSR RWAs. What is the water situation in your apartment? We have never bought water from tankers till date. We have four borewells and a rainwater harvesting system ever since the apartment came up in 1996. We get sufficient water from the borewells and the Cauvery water is used only for the kitchen. What’s the resale value of a flat at Fernhill? The prices at Fernhill have kept pace with the changing market conditions. Though we have no swimming pool, Fernhill commands a premium because of its location and quality of construction by SI Property. SI Property started this project in 1988 and was considered the best builder in South India at the time. Fernhill flats are going for Rs 5000ResidentsWATCH

5500/sq ft. In 1995, the plot behind Fernhill was going for Rs 150/sq ft. Today, it has gone up to Rs 8000/sq ft. What don’t you like about HSR Layout? There should be designated areas for commercial development. The traffic police have now opened up the service road but are not managing it scientifically. People going towards Silk Board take a detour near the hospital and clog our road. During peak hours, we can’t get in or out of our apartment’s basement parking. We have now written to the Traffic Commissioner about this. Quite a few of us are senior citizens, and there could be a medical emergency anytime. What’s more, since there are no humps, vehicles come at 100kph. What do you think of corporator Latha? She hasn’t done any special favour to us. Even a simple thing like cleaning up the common drain in front of Fernhill isn’t done yet. We have followed up with her for three months and even brought the engineer here, but the problem persists. Fortunately, the drain has dried up, so there is no stink. However, when it rains, the basement car parking gets flooded. We have kept my motor ready to pump out the rain water.

‘I miss the Bangalore feel and the unique Kannada culture in HSR Layout’ Author of three literary books and HSR resident, Vikram Sampath

By our feature writer

A I have seldom planned what I am going to write about. Serendipity rules my life and that’s how I wrote all my three books. 22| May 2013

resident of Sector 7 in HSR Layout for over two years, Bangalore boy Vikram Sampath has done the country proud. The 33-year-old eligible bachelor’s claim to fame are his three books – Splendours of Royal Mysore, My Name is Gauhar Jaan and Voice of the Veena: S Balachander. His book on Gauhar Jaan has won him instant admirers, including Sonia Gandhi, Shyam Benegal, Rajashree Birla, Pt. Jasraj, Ustad Amjad Ali Khan, Girija Devi, Pt. Shivkumar Sharma and Shubha Mudgal, among others. Vikram’s is a story in contrast because here is a techie who has made inroads into the literary world and walking the tightrope. Without further ado, this engineer, mathematician and MBA graduate answers a few of our pressing questions… How do you balance your work and literary pursuits? They feed into each other very well. I am a team leader in the financial analytics domain at a leading MNC in Bangalore. However, in some ways, there is an osmosis. The research that goes behind writing each of my books does need one to be quite scientific and analytical before the creative element of weaving the narrative can come in. Also, many of my ventures like the Archive of Indian Music (AIM) or the Bangalore Literature Festival (BLF) have been ideal examples ResidentsWATCH

of a start-up and robust project management skills that are important for success. Balancing these multiple strands in limited time is quite a challenge though. So I work on extended weekends and late into the night to be able to do all of this. What do you think of the art scene today? I see so many youngsters taking to music as a career and doing well. They are bringing about a paradigm shift in the country’s musical scene. We do have a big problem in the area of preservation, archiving and documenting our past, especially in the field of the performing arts. It is futile to expect the government to do all of this. My own little step towards this is the creation of the Archive of Indian Music (www.archiveofindianmusic.org), a non-profit venture funded by TV Mohandas Pai that digitises and preserves all the old gramophone recordings of India across genres and makes it available for all through an online portal and audio exhibitions. What is your next book all about? I have seldom planned what I am going to write about. Serendipity rules my life. It was by accident as a school boy not deeply interested in history that I got into history writing. Disturbed by the wrong portrayal of the Mysore royal family in the tele-serial, The Sword of Tipu Sultan, I had begun my own self-motivated, self-funded research on them, which resulted, after a 10-year research in ‘Splendours of Royal Mysore: the untold story of the Wodeyars’. And during the research of that book, I accidentally came across Gauhar Jaan’s reference. She was the first musician and celebrity of the country to record on the gramophone in 1902 and though she hailed from Calcutta, she died in Mysore. This story intrigued me and I set off on a discovery trail that eventually resulted in the book, ‘My name is Gauhar Jaan! - the life and times of a musician’. The third book ‘Voice of the Veena: S Balachander, a biography’ too was a result of the many inspiring stories about her guru that my music teacher Dr Jayanthi Kumaresh would narrate in our classes. So there has been no method to this madness and I am waiting for ResidentsWATCH

the next inspiration and story to affect me. What do you think of HSR Layout? I moved to HSR in late 2010 from Jayanagar which has a strong old Bangalore charm. I miss the ‘Bangalore feel’ and the unique ‘Kannada culture’ that permeates Jayanagar. I rarely get to hear Kannada here and wonder if I am in Bangalore. I wish there were more South Indian joints here. But the roads are so much broader and every layout is well-planned with beautiful parks, which is a big plus. permeates Jayanagar.

DENTAL TIPS

By Dr Abhijith Kumar Shetty Dental surgeon & Centre Head, Confident Dental Care

The key factor for good oral hygiene is prevention – stopping problems before they arise. Unfortunately, phobic patients who suffer from severe anxiety do not visit the dentist for regular care. This results in more complex problems.

Tip 1

Soft drinks are not good for your teeth and affect people of all ages. Acids and acidic sugar byproducts in soft drinks soften the tooth enamel, contributing to the occurrence of decay. In extreme cases, softer enamel combined with improper brushing, grinding of the teeth or other conditions can lead to tooth loss.

Tip 2

Baby teeth usually emerge around six months of age, so standard oral health procedures like brushing and flossing aren’t required for infants. However, infants have special oral health needs that every new parent should know about. These include guarding against baby bottle decay and making sure your child is receiving enough fluoride.

Tip 3

roots are not covered by enamel, thousands of tiny channels leading to the tooth’s nerve centre (pulp) are exposed. When heat, cold or pressure touches these channels, you feel pain. Ignoring your sensitive teeth can lead to other oral health problems. This is especially true if the pain causes you to brush poorly, making you vulnerable to tooth decay and gum disease. Clean your tongue. A major cause of bad breath can actually come from bacteria building up on your tongue with a high percentage of it accumulating at the back, making it hard to reach. Use a proper tongue scraper every morning to remove tongue plaque and freshen your breath. Daily tongue scraping will help banish harmful bacteria and remember, using a tongue scraper is more effective than brushing your tongue with a toothbrush.

Tip 5

Do not wet your brush before applying the paste or before Tip 6 starting to brush. It alters the action of the bristles and prevents them from removing plaque effectively.

Tooth sensitivity is tooth pain due to a wearing away of the tooth’s surface or gum tissue. The most common cause of sensitive teeth in adults is exposed tooth roots due to receding gums. Because these

Divya’s D&M Home Salon Services bring quality beautycare to your door

By our feature writer

S Divya Chopra

I immensely liked all the services but the Body Spa products stood out because they were completely herbal products. It was the best spa treatment I have ever experienced. It left my body totally nourished and glowing. – Nilasha Sircar, IT professional

38| May 2013

he only got exclusivity at five star salons, but not at her place. The result was D&M Home Salon Services for women. “We provide head-to-toe beauty solutions for women who embrace beauty and value quality,” says Divya Chopra, D&M’s founder and CEO, where D stands for Divya and M for her three-year-old baby girl Meher. Colloquially, D&M means, ‘deep and meaningful’. It goes well with Divya’s business because she aims to make her enterprise impactful to the many working women and housewives who don’t have the time to visit a parlour, leave alone be pampered from sole to soul. What’s more, they are made aware of the entire suite of beauty products available in the market, so they get to pick what they like. It’s not a ‘one size fits all’ concept for Divya. She wants every experience to be tailormade to your needs. Agreed, home salons are not new. But then, it’s not an organised sector and the customer satisfaction from such services has never been high. Divya should know. She was one such customer. “D&M brings exclusive products and skilled professionals,” she says. “I have a team of six beauticians whose average experience is eight years. They are headed by a manager who has 17 years experience of working with established brands across categories.” D&M’s body spa products are customised for you. Each spa is specially created to detoxify and nourish your body ResidentsWATCH

with essential massage oils and herbal scrubs. For example, there’s an exclusive collection of spa products consisting of almond, saffron and sandalwood that leave your body nourished and polished. D&M’s facial range endorses brands like Shahnaz Hussain, VLCC, Lotus and Aroma Magic from Blossom Kochhar, among others. Divya’s skilled beauticians use these products in totality. They don’t blend them with creams or scrubs available across the counter. Talk about D&M’s makeup range and you will only see M.A.C products coming out of their kit. “The deal here is to bring total customer awareness to the table which wasn’t there before, barring some hair styling products,” she says. The service was launched in April 2013 and there has been no looking back. From catering to home managers during weekdays and serving working women during weekends, Divya’s first entrepreneurial has hit the high road to wellness. Exclusivity will be the main differentiator here followed by an extensive feedback mechanism. “The products used are exceptional and no other home salon provider is using these,” says Divya. “We call our customers personally after every service and gather feedback on the overall service. Our average overall customer satisfaction ResidentsWATCH

since we launched stands at 4/5 while the specific product rating has always been 5.” Among the many end-to-end beauty solutions, Divya recommends the signature range of services. In addition, all her products in ‘Hands and Feet’ range are internationallyacclaimed spa line products and the Body Spa products are customised to give her customers an enriching and nourishing experience. D&M beauticians operate out of Divya’s Old Airport Road office and serve the whole of Bangalore. With 17 years of corporate experience, Divya now intends to take her business to the next level. Her scaling up plans include providing gym instructors for women at large, and skilled nurses for pregnant women and new mothers at their residence. Her advice to customers: “It’s best to use our service on weekdays, so you get to spend all your spare time with your close ones on weekends.” Sole to soul, indeed.

Herbal plantation in Median Park Residents prevent further encroachment of the 3rd Sector park with this quick move

espite repeated requests from residents, the local corporator and the MLA failed to start the herbal plantation that they had promised before the median park was encroached by a religious structure in Sector 3. To prevent further encroachment, 3rd Sector Welfare Society took the help of the BBMP and concerned citizens to start the herbal plantation in the median park on 19th Main on April 7, 2013. Though the elected representatives were invited as per protocol, they could not come, because it would violate the Election Commission’s Code of Conduct. Prior to the event, the residents deployed the JCB to clean up the entire median park on April 5 and the pits were dug on April 6 to make way for the plantation drive. Dr Shanthi brought saplings from the University of Agricultural Sciences in Hebbal and it was team work of the society members all the way. The planting was presided by H Jannappa, Joint Commissioner, BBMP, Bommanahalli Zone and Brig RS Murthy, President, Sector 2 Residents Welfare Association. “It was a united move of 3rd Sector residents who practically demonstrated the task of saving the public property through unity in diversity,” says HM Javali, General Secretary, 3rd Sector Welfare Society.

‘Recall permits given for non-residential use’

HSR Federation petitions the BDA, BBMP and Labour Department By our feature writer

Flouting the law? Building bylaws need to be adhered to for the proper functioning of HSR Layout. Will the BBMP get its act together? ResidentsWATCH

In light of the rampant building bylaw violations across HSR Layout, the Federation of HSR Layout Residents Welfare Associations has petitioned the authorities to prevent largescale misuse of the ‘change in land use’ law. What’s more, there are several commercial and residential buildings that have violated all the building bylaws and built six floors and higher, violating all the rules of being in a residential layout. The Karnataka High Court in its judgement in December 2012 restrained the Govt. of Karnataka, BBMP and the BDA from giving permission for any type of change in land use and issue of trade licences. Not just that. The court also asked them to recall building plans sanctioned and trade licences issued after January 25, 2012. “In spite of this specific order, we notice that a number of commercial establishments are coming up in HSR Layout and the residents are agitated over this issue,” says Federation’s Secretary General HM Javali. “We want the concerned authorities to stop issuing any fresh licences or permissions with immediate effect and recall wherever such permissions were given for building plans and licences issued after 25th January, 2012. We want them to stop the operation of such establishments without further delay and honour the verdict of the Hon’ble High Court of Karnataka.” In the interim order given by the Karnataka High Court in December 2012, Chief Justice Vikramajit Sen and Justice BV Nagarathna also clarified that the residential areas mentioned and shown in the Comprehensive Development Plan (CDP) 1995, regardless of whether they are subsequently depicted as ‘residential main’ or ‘residential mixed’, are also included. Change of land use will lead to excessive commercialisation of the neighbourhood. And this will lead to traffic congestion. Not to mention, water, air and noise pollution, impacting our quality of life. May 2013|47

FASHION SPEAK FASHION TIPS Use the right kind of accessories during the winter, like cashmere scarves, earflap hats, woollen gloves and suede boots. Wear chunky jewellery. Double-layered clothing is best. And keep you hair long.

FASHION DISASTER Matching nail polish, shoes, jazzy clothes, too much shimmer and overdone embroidery. Matching everything from eye shadows to shoes is a fashion disaster. ResidentsWATCH

TRAVEL PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS p Research about the place you are visiting through the Internet, friends and relatives who have visited the place. p Angle your subject differently. Get low, climb high. Lie on your back. Crawl on your knees. p Don’t let the weather discourage you. If the light is flat gray, focus on portraits. If the weather is bad, get that tripod out for long exposure shots after sunset. p While it’s okay to take pictures of people without their knowledge, sometimes and particularly while taking portraits in travel photography, it makes sense to interact with your subjects: they could be locals or visitors, but this breaking of the ice helps in getting richer expressions from people you’re talking with.

Skateboarding comes to HSR Layout

Skate, learn, and educate underprivileged kids By our feature writer / Photos by Gautham Nalasinghu

Holystoked Skateboard

eard of Skateboarding? It’s skating on a board as opposed to shoes. And now, you have a skatepark to indulge in your sport on 27th Main in HSR Layout. Thanks to HolyStoked Collective and its founding members: Somanna, Abhishek, Poornabodh, Gautham, Amit, Prannoy, Yukti and Nick. The three-year-old registered firm is promoting skateboarding as a lifestyle and sport. Not only does it provide skateboarding equipment, but also conducts workshops and events (including midnight sessions), builds skateboarding infrastructure and collaborates with international skateboarding firms to grow the sport in India. The HS Skatepark, a collaboration between HolyStoked (India) and Zweir (Germany) was completed on March 7th this year. “The park was built with speed and precision, thanks to the expertise of the various skate crews from Germany, England, the US and sponsorship from Levis,” says Somanna. “We want to build skateparks across India.” There are skateboarding classes conducted every day in four batches. And now, they are also educating underprivileged kids on learning English, art, waste management and life skills. Their incentive? A free course in skateboarding and free equipment, too. You can join the cause by educating the underprivileged during your spare time. Now that’s a sporting firm with a cause. Do your grinds…
