This Statue or a Better Drainage Infrastructure?

What does Mumbai need?

On August 29th, 2017, heavy rains brought Mumbai to stand still, again! Almost every part of Mumbai was Waterlogged. Thousands of people were forced to walk in waist-high water in areas like Khar, Lalbaug, Kalina, Hindmata (Dadar) and Sion.

Here’s a video of waterlogging in Mulund Station.

 

Year after year Mumbai gets stranded in rains. Central and Harbour lines just need 1 hour of heavy rains to shut down.The infrastructure just doesn’t seem to improve. We survive the day and beat our chest in the name of #SpiritOfMumbai.

What are we going to do to fix our Infrastructure? We will spend 3600 crore rupees into building a statue of Chhatrapati Shivaji,1.5 km away on a manmade island of rocks.

 

 

Have we done and spent enough to fix the land that we are living on that we can afford to build new islands to host a statue? Why don’t we ask enough questions every time this happens? Is this a problem that just cannot be fixed or they know that we are going to elect the same people no matter what!

What do you think?
