Is the city ready for monsoons? 24.6.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
While heavy showers are yet to hit the city, several areas witnessed water-logging and long traffic jams after only moderate showers last week. The Brihanumbai Municipal Corporations (BMC)'s pre-monsoon preparations have already failed to inspire any confidence, raising doubts about how prepared Mumbai is for the rains to come. DNA takes a close look at the quality of the city's pre-monsoon preparations, such as crucial nullah de-silting and road repair works that the BMC is expected to carry out across the city, with a special focus on the measures in place at chronic flooding spots. Work on removal of encroachments for nullah widening being caught up in jurisdictional wrangles between agencies is also a cause of concern. During the first showers, the city witnessed water logging on the Jogeshwari-Vikroli Link Road at SEEPZ, exposing the hollow promises from agencies like the BMC that Mumbai would be free from water-logging this monsoon. Water-logging at SEEPZ was blamed on the metro car-shed debris ...

Finally, Smart City crown for Queen of Hills 24.6.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Shimla, June 23 It is after a long wait and political slugfest that Shimla has finally made it to the list of 28 cities which have been included in the Smart City Mission of the Union Urban Development Ministry. The “Queen of Hills” figured at number 15 in the third and last list of 30 cities released by the ministry today.

Chennai: Manual scavenging will soon be a thing of the past, at last and for sure. At least for these 12 women and six men of Chennai who have been cleaning up the filth on train tracks and sinking into the drains every now and then for livelihood risking multiple ailments, even asphyxiation.
