Editor’s Corner

The PNLIT team is constantly evolving to be better at what we do and bring you not just news and information; but also, to give you a personal experience (with a virtual tour) of the natural world around us.

This edition comes with a little twist. We are very happy to announce a dedicated column to birding, from this edition onwards, called – Birds in my backyard by Ms. Ranganayaki Srinivas, from Hyderabad. Ms. Ranganayaki is a teacher trainer, an avid birder, and a conservation enthusiast. We are very happy to have her with us.

But, birding in our backyard can only be done if the backyard is free of waste materials. In this edition, Ms. Nandini shares some tips on waste segregation and management at the lake. Please do try these at home too!

Waste segregation and management helps trees in your neighbourhood as well. Many of our trees are as old as Bengaluru city. Therefore, they are a part of our heritage. Read more about these trees in Sri Vijay Thiruvady’s article.

We know there are people out there who do write articles and some dedicated to the natural world. We would love to hear from you. We are looking for people who can contribute articles to our newsletter. The articles need to have a base as nature, but can span right from the physics in nature, mathematics in nature, our cultural roots connected to nature and more.

If you like to contribute to our future editions, or know anyone who will; please do write to us at editor.newsletterpnlit@gmail.com.
