Look Beyond Rivers 5.5.2018 DNA: Top News
​​The mercury is climbing. These are the dog days of summer. Delhi is again facing acute water shortages — one of the biggest challenges it has been grappling with for decades. The worst-hit areas have been its pockets in the Southwest (rocky terrain), North floodplains (parched) and Northwest.  In such times, the Yamuna is always in focus. And it’s natural to some extent, because the river, despite being nothing better than a sewage canal at some places, meets about 70 per cent of Delhi’s water needs.

Bengalureans were completely stumped by the 13-cm rainfall on the intervening night of August 14 and 15. Several areas and roads were completely under water in a flash that left everyone wondering: Why were we not warned? Why did the weathermen fail to predict such a massive downpour? But even as the city came to a virtual standstill in the wake of this unprecedented rainfall, a reality came out in the open: Forget heavy downpour, the city's infrastructure cannot even handle a mere 42.2 mm of rain, the recorded amount of showers for August 23. The weathermen could not warn the public about the record rains, which could have helped them take precautions.
