'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 ...

Shame Old Story Part II: Now showing in Nagpur 7.7.2018 DNA: India
Maharashtra Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis' home city of Nagpur was a temperamental host to the state assembly's monsoon session again on Friday. Three hours of rain brought proceedings to a halt and also resulted in power outage. Coincidentally, work at the last state legislative session, held 57 years ago in 1961, was also adjourned for the day by power failure. Most of the city was submerged after rainfall measuring 160mm and water level reached to the knees at Vidhan Bhavan. As the water flooded the electricity room, there was a power outage, plunging the assembly hall, cabins and offices. Proceedings began at 10 am, but the Speaker Haribhau Bagade immediately adjourned the House for one hour amid the pandemonium. Wasting no time, opposition parties shamed the BJP-led state government over the forced adjournment. "The government has been exposed by the rains in Nagpur," said Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly Radhakrishna Vikhe-Patil, "They could not even handle three hours of rain, how will ...

Pakistani Hindu migrants hold protest against Delhi government 4.7.2018 DNA: Popular News
A large number of Hindu migrants from Pakistan, who have been living in Delhi for almost 5 years now, came together near the Majlis Park Metro station slum area on Tuesday to hold a protest against the government's apathy towards them. The protesters claimed that the authorities cut off the electricity supply to the slum a month ago and despite several complaints, it hasn't been restored yet. Some of the residents have developed skin infections as they are using the contaminated water for daily basic activities like bathing, cooking and washing clothes and utensils. Even though a tanker of water is provided by the Delhi Jal Board (DJB), but for a population of over 600 people, it is not sufficient. "It has been very difficult for us to survive without electricity and water. We come back from work tired and there is no electricity to operate fans. The children hardly sleep at night. We work all day selling mobile covers, electronic accessories, glasses and fruits but there is no security of our stalls and ...
