    Dear Mangalore City Corporation,
    Please send someone to check and record how much water runs on all the fancy concrete roads that you have got constructed over the years, as if there are no drains on the sides. No one walking or riding on these fancy roads will be able to see any death traps like open sections of drains, open manholes. Of course, no city corporation in India has liability if people lose their lives when they fall into drains, open manholes and other such death traps. Is this the way to prepare for climate related emergencies ?

    Hardly any rains in scattered areas with water logging in low lying areas did not warrant a school holiday; moreover IMD forecasts have miserably failed so far!

    Yes... Very true...water doesn't flow fluently through the drainages due to the blockage..

    There are many low lying areas scattered which get inevitably flooded even with moderate rainfall making life miserable!
