One lashing downpour is enough to box the some of the city’s central areas in a gridlock.  DNA audited some of these populous spots along with Thanekars and the picture that emerged is one devoid of hopes of a flood-free monsoon. Take Chikhalwadi, a slum area in Thane East, as a case in point. It is named after the muck (chikhal) that gathers here during monsoon. A heavy shower is enough to submerge the shantytown of 2,000 people, and the three stables nearby.
