Is it just a nature's fury or human error?. This is the unending debate as far as flooding in Mumbai is concerned. With global warming taking its toll and making its presence felt, a city like Mumbai has its bad days and worse days. The monsoon was once eagerly awaited because it was reason for rejoicing, even here. For the last couple of years, it has either played truant, or given us too much too soon flooding.
Every year, we would have at least two days of heavy rain which justified staying home. 2005 was the lowest point, marking the Great Flood and thousands of crores of rupees lost as a result of BMC negligence and apathy towards maintenance and cleaning of th city's drains. At least it woke them up.
