Our Cities, Our Responsibilities -Its Time to Act

Amidst garbage dumps, overflowing drains and mosquitoes and flies all around, if you suddenly come across a well-decorated, beautifully painted wall or a hut or even a public convenience, you are bound to get surprised. Though, as said by a tyre company, “Roads are filled with idiots”, our cities are also filled with many senseless people who happily spread garbage everywhere. However, there are people like Yogesh Saini who, via his organisation Delhi Street Art, tries his best to keep alive these surprising elements.  Delhi Street Art has been beautifying Indian cities since last 4-5 years now. When we asked Yogesh why and how did he feel the need to beautify the city, his reply was simple, “I am trying to motivate people to own public places, thereby decorating them an...

India’s culture, history, and heritage – Save the past for the future

‘Mukesh loves Swati’ or ‘Rishabh loves Ranjana’, you must have seen such things written on the walls of Lal Quila or the Qutub Minar or any other historical monument. Well, this is the way we actually preserve our history, by destroying them ourselves. And what if, when the authorities responsible to protect them, join the leave to demolish these historical milestones!  Yes, that’s the harsh reality of modern India! One can go and do whatever one wants at any of the protected monuments across the country by just paying a negligible bribe to the ‘so called’ guards. Archaeological Survey of India (ASI) is the nodal body that projects these monuments of historical importance. It works with central and state governments and with some NGOs as well. How...

The problem of Unauthorised Colonies

Rome was not built in a day! This proverb is symbolic to the development journey of any city. Ironically, it is symbolic to all the problems as well that arise due to ill-planning of all the development activities in and around a city. Ill-planning of a city means giving less or no emphasis on some of the vital aspects of a city which hold great future significance. Proper development of residential colonies is also one such aspect which must attend the requirement of future expansion to meet population increase.  The issue of unauthorised colonies is nothing but the by-product of the ill-planning that major metro cities have gone through in last 3-4 decades. A metropolitan city like Delhi, which also happens to be the capital city and where regular immigration of population from other pa...

Wastage of Resources – Who is Accountable!

How will you feel when you shift in your new housing society and find there is no connecting road to it or there is no electricity connection to this society or there is no sewer line at all to dispose of the waste! Yes, it is the same feeling that the residents of Greater Faridabad go through every day.  The area of Greater Faridabad was conceptualised in the year 2006 on the backdrop of the FNG project. The plan was to develop a  mini-township with all the supporting infrastructure. However, neither the FNG Corridor could be materialized nor the residents of these localities could experience the full-fledged infrastructure, till date.  Though the developers delivered their projects way back in the year 2011 itself, the supporting infrastructure that were supposed to be developed along w...

The Delayed Projects – Do we really need them now

The status of Indian infrastructure projects is not very pleasing. The condition can easily be assessed with the fact that more than 300 projects are delayed by at least 5-7 years. The issue is that these delays just kill the entire purpose of those projects and make them virtually useless in the current scenario. Not to mention the revised funds which get wasted on them. The question is ‘Do we really need them now’ Every project is launched with some objective. Out of all, one of the prime objectives is better and smooth connectivity and removing decongestion to cut pollution caused due to long traffic jams. With delays exceeding more than 5 years, the entire surrounding of the project changes. The traffic load changes, the population load changes, the supporting infrastructur...
