Bengaluru, the capital of the Indian state of Karnataka and the "Garden City of India" is known as the "centre of India's high-tech industry." The city has two large lakes, Bellandur and Varthur that have been frothing out in flames since last few days. Pre-monsoon showers had provided much-needed relief to the people in Bengaluru in the summers, but it had also become a problem for those who live in the areas near the Varthur Lake. The heavy rainfall that hit the city in the last week had resulted in foaming of the lake. The travellers had been facing a lot of problems due to the high traffic, as the toxic foam had spilt over the Whitefield Main Road of the city. 

People had noticed foams on the road on 27th May, Saturday morning. The heavy winds had resulted in foam getting blown from the other side of the lake and had entered the road, disrupting the traffic in nearby areas. And not only the foam but also the unpleasant smell that is emanating from the lake has become intolerable for the residents. The froth had also entered the malls and hospitals in the city.
