Rain drains down under 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The torrential rains had proved transformational. Last month's heavy downpour had enveloped many city streets in multiple layers of water. Resembling Venetian canals, the roads had turned a dangerously dirty mix of storm water, sewage and open manholes! Disaster lurked at every step. The city's underground drainage system lay thoroughly exposed, yet again. Its old, corroded and clogged pipelines leaking, the network had nothing to defend itself from the marauding flood waters. Total collapse was precariously close! But the danger ran deeper, a reality that came out starkly two days after the rains. Two labourers, in their attempt to repair a damaged pipeline, slipped into a manhole in Nagawara and died instantly. They had inhaled the toxic fumes that billowed out of the manhole. The reasons are not hard to seek at all. In disrepair for years, abused by both industrial and residential units, the crumbling underground pipeline network today lies in a shambles. Tons of solid waste particles, electronic ...

Safety at stake 16.10.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Most people are content as long as waste is collected from their doorstep and are not bothered what happens thereafter. But the sight of pourakarmikas standing knee-deep in garbage and rummaging through it, in an effort to separate wet waste from dry waste, is not one that people can easily forget about. Most of these workers are not only poorly paid but are also not provided with basic safety gears like hand gloves, gum boots, face masks when they are collecting and separating the garbage. The result — they develop skin diseases and respiratory problems. The pourakarmikas say that they are treated in the worst manner possible. They confess that they have not only contracted various skin diseases but have suffered bouts of dengue. Lakshmi, who works in a shift from six in the morning at Kasturinagar, says, "We are not given any protective gears. We end up working even after our shift hours but don't get paid anything extra for that. And we don't even have basic facilities like toilet and drinking ...
