ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ನಗರ ಉದ್ಯಾನಗಳ ನಗರಿ (ಗಾರ್ಡನ್ ಸಿಟಿ) ಅಂತ ಕರೀತಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಒಂದು ಉದ್ಯಾನ ಅಂದರೆ ಏನು? ಮನೆಯೊಳಗಿನ ಗಿಡಗಳೆ, ವಿಶಾಲವಾದ ತೋಟವೆ, ಅಥವಾ ದಟ್ಟವಾದಂತಹ ಮರಗಳ ಸಂಗ್ರಹವೇ? ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಕಡಿದು ಹೋಗುತ್ತಿರುವಂತಹ ಸಾವಿರಾರು ಮರಗಳಿದ್ದರು, ಇವೆಲ್ಲರ ಜೊತೆ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು ನಗರದ ಪರಸ್ಪರ ಸಂಭಂದವಿದೆ.

ನಮ್ಮ ಈ ಸಂಚಿಕೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಡಾ|| ಹರಿಣಿ ನಾಗೇಂದ್ರ ಅವರು ಪವನ್ ಶ್ರೀನಾಥ್ ಮತ್ತು ಸೂರ್ಯ ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್ ರವರ ಜೊತೆ ಬೆಂಗಳೂರಿನ ಮರಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಈ ಮರಗಳ ಇತಿಹಾಸ, ಈ ನಗರದ ಕೆರೆಗಳ ಮೇಲೆ ಇರುವಂತಹ ಪ್ರಭಾವದ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಮಾತನಾಡುತ್ತಾರೆ

ಹರಿಣಿ ಅವರು ಅಝೀಮ್ ಪ್ರೇಂಜಿ ಯೂನಿವರ್ಸಿಟಿಯಲ್ಲಿ ಪ್ರೊಫೆಸರ್ ಆಗಿದ್ದರೆ. ಇವರು ಹಲವಾರು ಪುಸ್ತಕಗಳನ್ನು ಬರೆದಿದ್ದರೆ: Nature in the City: Bengaluru in the Past, Present, and Future ಮತ್ತು Cities and Canopies: Trees in Indian Cities.

Bengaluru has been called a garden city before, but what is a garden? Is it a manicured lawn, or something closer to a Thota, something in between a home garden, orchard and plantation? Even as public and private trees are being mown down, the city retains an important connection with its trees, many of which have originated from all over the world.

Dr Harini Nagendra joins Surya Prakash BS and Pavan Srinath to talk about trees, their connection with cities, and their history in Bengaluru and elsewhere. They also take a look at how a lake and its surroundings have changed in Bengaluru over the last 200 years.

Harini is a Professor of Sustainability at Azim Premji University, and is the author of several books, including Nature in the City: Bengaluru in the Past, Present, and Future (OUP 2016) and her latest, Cities and Canopies: Trees in Indian Cities (Penguin 2019).
