In a matter of days since World Cup final, landslide damages Russian stadium 17.7.2018 DNA: India
Heavy rain damaged one of Russia's newly-built World Cup stadiums on Sunday when the tournament ended with the final in Moscow. Footage from the southern city of Volgograd showed a fresh landslide on an embankment near the stadium, which made a several-metre-deep hole in it and covered a sidewalk with mud. A spokesman for the state Sport In company overseeing the construction said there were also leaks inside the stadium which could take up to a week to repair. "I'm sorry for the city. They invested so much money and it was washed away by one rain," 19-year-old Vitaly Ovchinnikov, a local resident, told Reuters TV.

'Scared Games' of Mumbai monsoon: Why rain washes away maximum city every year 11.7.2018 DNA: Urban Tales
The rain in Mumbai continues and with it, thousands of problems. The easiest thing to do is to blame the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) for their high-handedness and under-preparedness in handling monsoons every year. Sure, the BMC is the governing body of the city, and it is its responsibility, along with other bodies such as the MMRDA, and Western and Central Railway to ensure that the drainage system is in order, potholes are fixed, and bridges are sturdy enough to not collapse or develop cracks. Yet, in the past fortnight, the city has witnessed bridge collapses, roads caving in and at least 35 deaths due to the heavy spell of rains. The big question is why does Mumbai flood like this every year? A report by Indian Environment Portal highlighted how the Bandra-Worli Sea Link and the construction of Bandra-Kurla Complex (which is ironically a smart city) play a role in this. Bandra-Kurla Complex or BKC was built over mangroves, which are the natural barrier that prevents flooding in the ...
