Madiwala Kere played host to the third Lake Day celebrations on Saturday April 11th. It was organised by Namma Bengaluru Foundation in association with Snehadhara Foundation, BB76 and United Way.
The event encouraged people to connect with their surroundings, explore and participate in preserving it, and become a stakeholder in keeping it alive. With talks on biodiversity and sustainable living, demos on organic gardening and water testing, bird watching, sketching, cycling, music and dance, it truly was a day to celebrate the abundance in nature.
Here’s a glimpse of the Lake Day celebrations at Madiwala in pictures.

Dancing, a great tool to socialise! A community dance that was true to its name; no one was spared.
A stall where one could get water tested!
A perfect outing for the grandparent-grandchild duo; a common sight during summer vacations.

The lake’s beauty is beyond compare and we must protect it – this is all that the folks at the habba were trying to say.
