The German newspaper “Dein Spiegel” says that in Odisha (India) a gentleman dug – with only a spade and a shovel – a tunnel through a hill so the children of his village – including his own – could go to school without having to walk for hours just to get to this school and even more hours to get back in the evening in the dark. The government refused to help these children by having a professional dig this tunnel, so he took matters into his own hands.

The Danish newspaper “Jyllands Posten” says that less than a year ago flames rose from Lake Bellandur in the Indian million city of Bangalore due to highly inflammable waste.
The lake, which has an average depth of more than nine meters, is located in the suburb Bellandur, southeast of the town of Bungalore.
Since the beginning of the 00’s there has been dumped waste water and industrial waste in the lake, which is currently very polluted.
In May 2015, foam covering the surface of the water broke through the industrial chemicals. It has happened several times since.
A large planting blanket has grown over the lake. Although the locals spend a lot of time removing it, it grows fast again.
On Friday morning, however, large smoke clouds emerged from the nearly 3,000-acre lake again, The Hindu writes.
Since then, over 5,000 soldiers have tried to extinguish the fire to stop it before spreading to the inhabited parts of the city, which houses more than 8.4 million. people.

The German TV-show “TopZehn” – actually just an adaption of an American show called “Alltime10” – now had an episode about the 10 “weirdest cities in the world”. In India for example there is a city where people keep feeding wild monkeys for cultural reasons. By doing so however they attract even more monkeys and make them lose their natural fear of human beings. There already have been cases of monkeys stealing lunch from school-children, shopping bags from ladies and even food from stalls on market places.
