The growth of smaller towns: are we systematic in their development?Some years ago, we had this growth of the huge mega cities, and this is still growing. For instance, the four metros, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Pune, Hyderabad, Indore and such other cities are also growing.
How about the smaller cities? Coimbatore,Madurai, Mysore, Vijayawada, Tirupathi, Mangalore, Salem, and Hubli in South, and for example, Cuttack and Durgapur in the East, Lucknow and Kanpur in North and so on. Are these towns being developed systematically?
Is there a method in the madness, or is it "natural growth" and then planning? For example, Bangalore and Chennai had already developed, and then the Metro comes along, creating a mess for several years. The work is "still in progress" in both cities. I do not know about Hyderabad.
We should not have such unplanned development of these cities and other such cities. What can be done now? Members may please respond, based on their intimate knowledge about these cities, or other cities as well.
