When the state government decided to prohibit the use of plastic bags all over the state, Mumbaikars were more upset as carry bags has become part and parcel of their day to day life. Of course, a deluge and deaths forced the government to take this decision and finally that lethal environment killer, plastic bags were banned. Discarded plastic bags choked the drains and the sewerage of Mumbai, draped every bush along the tracks as your train speeded into town from far away, and caused unprecedented water logging. Time and again the government has banned the bags, or banned bags below a certain micron level, or fined shopkeepers or threatened to fine people found using them. Effect? Pretty much invisible. There are still plenty of these little killers around.
