January 1st, 2011Tale of a manhole

There is a saying I read when I was in my teens which I still remember! It goes like this. “Why don’t you have time to do a thing right the first time, but always time to do it over!” In the above case it is time, money or both and the users, we, are the losers.

Most of our RWH structures are namesake structures which will not hold water. Set up to fool the government knowing well that there will not be any inspection and even if there is one it is easy to get approval otherwise.
We find it a difficult task to segregate wastes into organic and non-organic as the corporation wanted us to do and here too the short comings are not followed up on.
It is easy for us to dispose our waste including plastic covers into storm water drains as rains in Chennai are a rare occurrence!
Come a little rain…our compound floods due to namesake RWH structure…we direct the RWH tubes towards the street…street floods…we break the storm water drain cover to direct the floods…they are blocked by our own waste thrown earlier…street floods…EB cuts off electricity…our movement, day to day activities curtailed…cremations postponed…sick left to their fate…
Let us see the positives…we and our children got genuine excuse to avoid office/school…we got more time to interact as there was no TV…not many vehicles on road so less pollution…
