It appears that toxicity in Rajasthan's waters has reached a point where Jaipur has ended up having a Bengaluru-like situation with foam coming out of water bodies. However, in Jaipur's case, it is a drain that has released frothy water full of chemicals and effluents. In Bengaluru, the dirty water was the result of overpollution of the Bellandur Lake.

The project, which now needs a major inspection, has cost the Rajasthan government Rs 2,500 crore. While the foam has come onto the city, people have been taking pictures and claiming that it 'has ...
