  1. Its a need of the hour in a concrete jungle like Bangalore and also the young buddies must understood and learn the importance of nature. This kind of Bio-experiments must happens all over our country. Applauds to the initiative of RK mission and backed by IISC. Sooner, i would like to give my contribution and to play a role to expand this operations to other needed areas. I am eager to start implement in my home town Koodan kulam in Tamilnadu, where water level lowers below 400 feets. Good Job RKM
