Continuous downpour during the last fortnight has flooded the whole city. It reminds me of the flood in Srinagar , a few yeas back. That time too , people had to escape to the terrace and food dropped by helicopters . This time , the area is more and the number of people affected is more than one lakh.
It must be remembered that the rainfall is over the sea too , the water level of the sea goes up and the flow from the rivers is retarded. This fact is ignored in the endless discussions in the TV channels. Some people blame the administration. I think it is meaningless. Calamities do occur in nature.
One point to be stressed, is the preparedness of the administration. Special permanent, trained teams must be ready , like the fire extinguishers.
