How 3 hours of rain created Havoc in Chandigarh (Tricity)

Mostly, we make lots of claims about the progress of India; however, in reality, we still lack many basic things. Our cities are least prepared for the rains and it was evident from just 3 hours of rain in the tri-city area of Chandigarh. In many parts of the Chandigarh, water enters the homes and vehicle can be seen floating the water at many prime locations. Mostly, we imagine Chandigarh as a modern town which is designed well to face all such troubles. However, unplanned growth in and around the Chandigarh city is creating lots of problem for its residents. When such a well-planned city is not prepared for just 3 hours of rain, then what we can expect from other unplanned cities of India.

In India, urban planning is very poor and we don't modulate our increasing cities. Our government doesn't stop illegal and unauthorized developments around the cities which sometimes include construction on the catchment areas of rivers and lakes. Due to this reason, every year flooding in Indian cities is becoming a common story. I think nobody must have forgotten about the heavy rains and floods in the one of the biggest city of India, Chennai.  I hope that we will start learning from our mistakes and create better cities which are capable of sustaining heavy rains.

Below, you can watch some of the video of Chandigarh city after the rain which clearly shows that how badly we need to change our city planning.

In Nepal a new Buddha is in making. Recently a person called Ram Bomjon from Nepal has been fasting and meditating for last six months beneath a tree. In him people are seeing a new Buddha. This incidence has happened in Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have starting visiting this place. There is news that Ram has not even single time broken his fast. For the last six months he has not moved, even to relieve himself. His place is not much away from the place where original Buddha had done his meditation. According to Ram he does this meditation because a snake has beaten him. He is also asking people for not saying him Buddha because he is telling that he is not having the powers like Buddha.

About Banaras or Varanasi City

In the beginning of this week, I got a chance to visit one of the holiest cities of India which is Banaras also known as Varanasi. Varanasi is a very popular religious destination because of presence of many places of religious importance around it. It is situated on the bank of holly river the Ganga. Banaras is also known as Kashi because of the Lord Kashi Vishwanath temple of Lord Shiva situated in it. This city holds a great significance in the life of every Hindu because of its religious value. According to the Hindu religion, any person who dies in Kashi attains a godhood and gets himself free from the cycle of birth and death.

Therefore, it is a desire of many Hindus to die in this place. This place is known to be constructed by the Lord Shiva himself for the welfare of mankind so that they can attain self realization by meditating here.
