Rain disasters and Mumbai

We all still remember the fate of the Mumbai in the last two years during rains. However, the apathy is that nobody learned from that bad experience and today again Mumbai is finding herself in the same condition. At present, Mumbai is living on a time bomb where it is not in a state to face any heavy rain. With the rainfall of few hours, water starts entering into many homes and situations appear looking going out of the control.

All these things indicate towards some major problems with water drainage systems of Mumbai like sewerage systems, small rivers of waste water etc. Every year after these types of the happenings a lot of projects and initiative being announced by state and a local governing body but hardly anything productive looks to be appearing on the ground. Yesterday first heavy rain in Mumbai caused a state of chaos for all Mumbai residents.

This is the consecutive third year of major rain related problems in Mumbai. Last two years have seen the worst panic related to rain. Last year the major reasons cited behind this problem by Mumbai Municipal Corporation are an outdated and old sewerage system of Mumbai and construction of houses in low line areas. At that time, Mumbai Municipal Corporation assured to take preventive measures so that these types of problems do not happen again in Mumbai.

However, the state of all theses progresses in this field are apparent in front of us in the first heavy rain. Death of people due to rains has become a common story in Mumbai with thousand of innocent people dying due to poor conditions. Yesterday was first heavy rain and still, there is the possibility of many more heavy showers in Mumbai this year. In India, it looks that there is no learning from previous bad experiences and the old systems are failing due to the population pressure.
