The problem has become so alarming that a new subject 'urban flooding' has been added to the list of disasters in India. Although it is treated as a natural disaster, in actuality, it is a man-made disaster.
Beware! I question everything and everybody.
Whenever a plan is sanctioned for a new construction, it is a must to see whether the plan has outlined a proper drainage system. In many cases rules are flouted and the plan is sanctioned without outlining a proper sewerage mechanism.
People are so casual about environment and their own well being that they throw away any kind of material be it plastic, thermocol or paper in the open drain which in turn clogs it and causes the drain to overflow during rains.
If the local authorities cannot control this with an iron hand , then there is no respite from this nagging problem.
