Let the government act!
August 01, 2005
Mumbaikars heaved a sigh of relief when the January 26, 2001 earthquake missed them.
They were grateful that the December 26, 2004 tsumani decided to leave them alone.
Then, Terrible Tuesday struck on July 26, 2005.
And what everyone has been saying for years -- that Mumbai is a sitting target for a natural calamity -- became a reality.
Hit by the kind of rain it had not seen for more than a century, the city and its 13 million residents struggled to stay afloat.
As the state government and BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation among other agencies floundered, citizens came to the fore, helped each other and kept alive the never-say-die spirit of Mumbai.
We turn to you again -- what do you think needs to be done, by the government and the great people of this great city, to ensure such a disaster does not occur again?
Please let us know!
