Read the latest issue of ‘HSR Layout Residents Watch’ magazine. It’s the most comprehensive guide to the neighbourhood.
In the April 2013 issue, we have a profile of the Jawed Habib hair and beauty salon in the sprawling neighbourhood. In addition, we have featured the president of the Salarpuria Apartments Owners Association and stories on why Nandini Cool Joint was shut down and how a portion of the area behind it has been encroached and the authorities are doing nothing about it.
In another development, we have an expose on how a grand mall coming up near Agara Lake in Jakkasandra is going to create a water crisis and traffic jams for the residents of Bellandur, Koramangala and HSR Layout. Not to mention, kill Bellandur Lake.
We also a triumphant story about Moumita getting her BESCOM name transferred without paying a bribe.
In our events roundup, we have a beauty parlour offering iPad makeovers, and several artists performing Live, including Satinder Sartaaj, Ambi Subramaniam & Lopamudra Mitra. We also have Mahesh Dattani and Crazy Mohan’s humourous plays to let you unwind after a long week.
We are back with the latest issue of ‘HSR Layout Residents Watch’. Do read and review. This time around, we bring you the first promotional cover story since the magazine began. It’s on Sichuan, the newest Chinese restaurant in town.
We also have resident Moumita Bhattacharya sharing her personal success story on how she got her apartment registered without paying a bribe.
In our resident activist section, we bring to you Riyaz Ahmed, the dynamic secretary of Sector 5 Residents Welfare Association.

The February 2013 issue of HSR Layout Residents Watch is just out. If you can’t get a physical copy at HSR Club or at any of the commercial establishments, like department stores and coffeeshops (copies do get exhausted quite fast!), read it online.
In the latest issue, we are going mushy about young entrepreneurs aged 17 to 30 years, cutting across sectors. We also have a neighbourhood inventor who takes pride in building products for the bottom of the social pyramid even while getting the rest of us interested in his energy-saving devices.
In our resident activist section, we have PC Muniswamy Reddy, the proactive general secretary of Sector 1 Residents Welfare Association.
And as always, there is the happening events section that profiles the best and the brightest happenings in HSR Layout and in the rest of the city. After all, when Norah Jones is performing at another part of town, no one would want to stick to events happening in their own neighbourhood, would they?
