    Aye! Your back is showing!


  • II LLoovvee KKVV!!

    Dear Friend, Can you spot the honeycomb tucked in-between branches

    at a safe height of the tree in the picture? Despite its king size, it is not easy to locate this multi-cellular home of the honey- bees beautifully camouflaged and concealed in the green surroundings. Oh, Honeycomb! You are just like my KV - a perfect residential marvel.

    Thanks to koyals’ wake-up calls from the trees, I have become an early riser. Minutes before the Sun appears on the horizon to light up Bengaluru’s skyline, I am up and ready for my early-morning jog. I catch up with my friends already on their rounds. Six rounds on the peripheral track makes 5km, which is enough to charge ones batteries for the day’s doings.

    Security men clear up their ‘bonfire’ gadgets used to warm up the cold night and open the main entrance gates. Arrival of the milk van marks the start of the day. Newspaper boys sort out their bundles hurriedly near the drop-gate. There is activity in the Community Hall. ‘Yogi’s should have arrived for their yoga session. It is time to grab the milk packs and rush home. Mom should be waiting.

    Yellow school buses start arriving one after the other. Mothers walk briskly behind kids in bright uniforms, carrying the school bags. Occasionally fathers too run carrying the school bags as well as the little kids! It is a colourful unfolding of the day in the campus.

    After working adults leave for their job, it is relatively a quiet time, with the gardeners and other maintenance staff going about their duties. The lifts too have a relaxed time between 10 am and 3 pm.

    The parks and play areas go agog with lot of fun and games after the school buses drop the children back around 4 pm. It is great to watch the kids cycling, skating, and being all over the place. Basket ball has become a new craze among the elder children.

    You notice an elderly couple holding hands, carefully supporting each other, and gracefully moving across the lawn. What an inspiring sight it is! My friend whispers: ‘You know, that uncle is a Padma Shree and the aunt is an IAS!’

    God! I feel blessed!

    KKVV IIss OOuurr VVaalluuaabbllee AAsssseett Kendriya Vihar is built on a reclaimed lake bed and the massive nine-storied apartment blocks are

    expected to ‘settle down’ over the years causing micro level distortions in the structure. Changes being made in the lay-out of apartments lead to deviations in the loading pattern on structural members adding to the stress levels in them. Frequent rework done involving demolition of constructed portions of the interior, some of the times, by untrained workers, can also lead to cracks in the structure. Seepage can cause damage to the rods in the concrete members thereby reducing their strength.

    An Expert Committee headed by Dr. AR Acharya had been requested by President, KVAOA, to examine all aspects relevant to Kendriya Vihar and recommend measures for ‘life retention/extension and maintenance of the civil structure of all the eight blocks of dwelling units in KV’. The Committee has carried out an in-depth study of all issues also drawing guidance from CGEWHO Rules, BDA Regulations, BBMP Building Byelaws, KMA Act and Model Building Laws of GoI.

    Copy of the Report of the Expert Committee is available for reference in the Seva Kendra, KVAOA, and wi
