Musings 29th Aug 2011TOPICS:BMCfloodMumbai Posted By: Vidyut August 29, 2011 “ High tide should be around noon today. Good idea to avoid being flooded into uncomfortable positions 😉VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ From the sound of it, things sound normal for #mumbairains Most roads clear of paranoid people, usual suspect… (cont) http://deck.ly/~SywkTVidyutAugust 28, 2011“ The general guide is when our area gets some signs of flooding, it is time to scuba at Milan subway.VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ The Mithi is a whole other game. People have occupied the river bed and turned it into a gutter. It dishes it right back in monsoons.VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Rain slowing to a drizzle. Feeling disappointed that the drainage will get a lead. I hope it picks up again.VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Nothing like a week of torrential rain to turn the screws on municipal lazies and their garbage store drains. No one can argue a flood away.VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Waitaminit why are tweeps whining about #mumbairain and not BMC+govt? Garbage doesn’t rain from sky to clog drains!VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Waitaminit why are tweeps whining about #mumbairain and not the planning of the city that dams a river with “development”?VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Waitaminit why are tweeps whining about #mumbairain and ignoring that traffic jams are because of bad and undrained roads, not water?VidyutAugust 28, 2011“ Very funny. I’d been calling up Nanavati to cancel today’s appointment, no one picking up. Now they called me and got angry for not callingVidyutAugust 28, 2011“ There should be a map of Mumbai for flooding and traffic for easy references. Small markers of paddleboats or scuba and stuck fish in seaVidyutAugust 28, 2011“ There is plenty of water in the world. Just look at how much has been pouring from the sky for days now. Now to use wisely.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ Anyone remember Sonia G? Yesterday’s headline?VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ We have cases pending for ages. Why not have more courts? Fast prosecution is a big deterrent against all crime including corruption.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ I would love to see a day when courts have little backlog and people know cases will get tried and concluded rapidly.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ Big racket in market. Guy wanted rickshaw to take ill mother to hospital. Driver refused. Guy bashed him bad before some people pulled them.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ Beating the rickshaw driver is wrong, but the ones in parle are really bad. Most refuse at whim, but charge extra at night for inconvenienceVidyutAugust 29, 2011“ Not fair to refuse passengers to many places. Some say that they take really short fares and earn better profits from minimum fare.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ http://post.ly/31Pez – Remember I had talked about our building scaring me that it will collapse? 10 min ago this happened.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ My parents are quite concerned, because the water tank is right above the part that crumbled off. It makes it more worrisome.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ http://post.ly/31PhS – The leakage had just eroded the beam kind of thing. Fell with massive clatter.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ The building is due for redevelopment, but many old people don’t want hassle of shifting,more maintenance, etc so stalled.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ The building is about 40 years old.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ That part had been damp then leaking for decades.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ I’m thinking of having emergency stuff packed and ready at least. I figure it is not paranoia if it comes true. If it doesn’t that’s great.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ Well… It isn’t open to the sky. Only a part has fallen. Besides there is the entire water tank on top.VidyutAugust 29, 2011“ +1 RT @_deathkitty_: i feel complete under the starsVidyutAugust 29, 2011Join the Intellectual Anarchy!
