Rains in Mumbai

I've been in Mumbai for the past 10 days. Yesterday morning the rain started here. It has not stopped till now (literally, it was raining ALWAYS). Mumbai remains cut off, local trains have stopped working, buses are not running, many people are stuck in their offices. One of my Aunts had to sleep in the college she is teaching. Her poor two and half year old child had to be looked after by some other people. Maharashtra has declaired today as a holiday. About 5-6 people killed in Mumbai and 100s in Maharashtra. In Mumbai this happens almost every year. There will be one day in the monsoons when the rain continues for more than 24hrs and life in Mumbai will come to a standstill. But this time, this is probably one of the heaviest continuous rain falls in the recent future.

അവിടെ മഴ ആയത് നന്നായി. പുറത്തേക്കിറങ്ങാന്‍ പറ്റാതാവുമ്പോള്‍ തിരിച്ച് വന്ന് ബ്ലോഗുമല്ലോ.

അഹോ, കഷ്ടം ബോംബേ ജീവിതം! ഇന്നലെ അനീത്തീം പറഞ്ഞൂ ഇക്കാര്യം.

മുംബൈയിൽ പെയ്യുന്ന മഴ ആകെ പ്രശ്നങ്ങൾ ഉണ്ടാക്കുകയാണ്‌. എന്റെ ജനറൽ മാനേജറുടെ വെക്കേഷൻ നീട്ടി വയ്ക്കപ്പെട്ടു. ഫ്ലൈറ്റ്‌ റ്റിക്കറ്റ്‌ ക്യാൻസൽ ചെയ്തു പുള്ളിക്കാരൻ!

It is sad that everytime this happens, we lose some lives, and Mumbai life comes to a stand still. Sadder still, is the fact that even after knowing well that such things happen, little is being done to prevent such incidents from happening again.

Very bad to hear about, Where is the Government?. What a bad story is that they cannot detour all these rain water to somewhere?. What type of Services they installed underground?. What type of master planning they did over there?.
