Ten-second Takeaway

A much-deserved day-long fete to the city’s lakes takes place this January.

What’s the Kere Habba, you ask? 

Once all the heat and dust of the new year has settled down, there’s a celebration of a different kind coming your way. Kere Habba means “lake festival”, and that’s what you’ll get – a celebration of our city’s lakes in all their forms, vanished, still-existing, or rejuvenated. The first edition of the Kere Habba was held in 2015, and featured sessions on the city’s heritage, a community-built play area, workshops, and talks.

The second edition, to be held in January, will follow suit: it’s a day full of events centered on the lake, but also includes a whole lot of general activities. The day certainly looks jam-packed with activities – organisers have mentioned quizzes, relay races, talks, screenings, balancing rope courses, lecture-demonstrations, film screenings, and more. If you’re an early riser, there are activities planned from as early as 6 am.

Where: Kaikondrahalli Lake, Sarjapur Road

When: January 9, 2016, 6 am onwards.
