The pipe burst happened at around 5.15 am on Sunday when a truck loaded with construction material from Tamil Nadu passed over the leaking pipeline at Ambalathara.

Water crisis deepens in TN, soaring temperature adds to woes 16.6.2019
Chennai: Tamil Nadu is reeling under acute water crisis for the past several months after Chennai's Porur Lake, which is considered one of the main sources of water, has reached its lowest level. Moreover, with mercury soaring in the region, there seems to be no respite for perturbed locals here. In Chennai, locals installed hand-pumps near Marina Beach to extract groundwater to manage their daily needs. However, the water, residents say, is of a compromised quality owing to pollutants, thereby forcing them to buy packaged water from shops for consumption. Speaking to ANI, a local said, "We have to stand in a queue for hours under this scorching heat to fetch some water as borewells in the area have gone dry. This is for the third time in a row that Chennai is facing a severe water crisis." "Most of the time, the water we get from these hand pumps can't be used for drinking as it stinks. For drinking and cooking, we have to buy water from the shops," she added. Earlier this ...

Dilli Ka Babu: A tweet too many 16.6.2019
A carelessly worded tweet has landed Maharashtra IAS officer Nidhi Choudhari"s career in hot water. Posted as joint municipal commissioner of the Greater Mumbai Municipal Corporation, she has been transferred as deputy secretary in the water supply department. The tweet in question was about Mahatma Gandhi and his approaching 150th birth anniversary celebrations in the context of the rise of hyper-nationalism. It was seen as derogatory to the Father of the Nation, and Ms Choudhari faced a severe backlash on social media. Even Opposition parties demanded "exemplary" action against the babu. Ms Choudhari"s denial that her tweet was "sarcastic" was lost in the din, especially on social media platforms where rhetoric scores far more than nuanced communication. Though the IAS officer immediately deleted the tweet, it has not stopped the Maharashtra government from seeking an explanation from the babu over the derogatory tweet. A show-cause notice has now been issued. Though ...
