  5. 7. <ul><li>Earlier, Bangalore was a pensioner’s paradise, adorned with dainty cottages and beautiful villas having aesthetically-laid-out gardens or potted plants. </li></ul><ul><li>Today, it is a chaotic jumble of mammoth high-rises and characterless townships but thanks to the aware citizens, it still is a great place to live in. </li></ul><ul><li>If a plot already has trees, the plan of the house tries to accommodate it. If not, enough space is left for a small garden. </li></ul><ul><li>Soil dug up from the construction is used to make mud blocks for walls and brick arches for beams, that need no cement. </li></ul><ul><li>Bore’s are drilled to help minimise the burden on the city’s water supply. </li></ul><ul><li>Rain-water harvesting mechanisms are installed. </li></ul><ul><li>Terracotta tiles are used for roofing to reduce usage of cement and yet retain the good looks. </li></ul>

  9. 12. <ul><li>The Tirumala temple, is one of Hinduism's holiest shrines. Over 5,000 pilgrims a day visit it, making it India's richest temple. For decades, the temple's community kitchen has fed nearly 15,000 people, cooking 30,000 meals a day. </li></ul><ul><li>In 2002, Tirumala adopted solar cooking technology, allowing it to dramatically cut down on the amount of diesel fuel it uses. The temple now sells carbon credits to a Swiss green-technology investor, Good Energies Inc. </li></ul><ul><li>India is the birthplace of four of the world's largest religions — Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism, all of which revere nature and preach conservation. Thus, it is not surprising that religious institutions are in the vanguard of India's green movement, especially with the government subsidizing up to 50% of the costs of installing green technology. </li></ul>
