Rains wreak havoc in Mumbai


Maharashtra too, like most other parts of the country is reeling under the monsoon fury. Mumbai is worst-affected, with scores of homes inundated, and several roads waterlogged, resulting in massive traffic snarls that is badly affecting normal life




Twelve more months will pass, and the Monsson of 2014 will arrive. Mumbai will still be the same no infrastructural solutions to flooded streets, floating garbage, stalled trains, school children wading in sewagecontamionated water on their way to schhol and the ad nauseum inanities of the civic leaders still droning away in the background, like the snoring of a monsdter in a stupor. I was there in 1947. Looks the same every monsoon season! I remember 4ft of water flowing down 'Hornby Road" opposite the "Victoria Terminus " Railway Station. (All names since changed to reverae history.)
