N.S. Ramakanth is a 77 year old retired engineer, who has taken an initiative to clean the city of Bengaluru and revolutionize the minds of the people of the city to turn it pollution free. He was initially an engineer in Germany. In 1989, he returned to Bengaluru and was astonished to see pollution alarming the city at peak rate.
N S Ramakanth is playing an active social participation role as he is working to make the city garbage free, for which he has been knocking at the doors of Municipal Corporation time and again. One of the recent efforts he has made is minimizing the waste generated during the ‘Ganesha Festival’ in Sankey tank, a lake in Bengaluru. He also organized an eco friendly workshop to prepare the idols of Lord Ganesha.
N S Ramakanth has also been working to involve the dwellers of the city as they are the ones who can revolutionize the city. For this, he conducts an initial 5 to 10 minutes street plays with the help of some volunteers to catch the eye of the residents and then generate awareness amongst them. He explained to the public the harm they do the city during such festivals.
N S Ramakanth also came forward to conduct a cleanliness driven in the city. The different types of waste were collected at the Sankey tank, which was then segregated. An effort was made to dispose the biodegradable waste however the treatment of lead and mercury is still a problem. He is also making an effort to minimize the pollution in the lakes of the city.
The retired engineer is making his best effort to make the city pollution free and he believes he will be successful. The effort hr has made is a motivational one as he took a job out of the league just to express the live he bears for the city and the country.
