Re: It's Hammering ! Raining Cats and Dog ! Torrential rain ! Mumbai! - 9 times than usual Baarish !!

News channels are covering Mumbai rains and blaming BMC for inaction. I don't see how anybody could do much about the rain and low lying reclaimed land in Mumbai. Yes, may be arrange a few boats, which they have.

The moron Arnab is standing without an umbrella and trying to lift up TRPs.

I'd have been happier if he was covering the floods in Bihar/Gujarat. No mofo even goes to the country side to cover their suffering, at the most it's a special feature playin in the middle of the day.

Ek baat samaj mein, yeh nahain aati ki,…… fijool ke all dharmik utsav, bade bade bill-boards , bana kar govt ke paiso ko barbaad karna, election prachaar,.. and tons of other way waste of money,..

Why not import few nyc machinery from foreign, about improving grading and drainage of road,… and just by peeling only upper surface of asphalt, they can again melt the same and rebuild the roads the lower costs, also fixing the proper drainage slope,...

In USA, they damage the road while shoveling / ploughing the snow,….with sharp equipments,.. but every 4-5 yrs, they re- layer the upper layer of road in no time, and drainage is so nicely slopped that there is never ever water accumulation.

Why no1 solves this basic problem,…. ! If roads are busy, work at night, during lighter traffic and by closing the roads part by part in segments ! Rather give a contract to foreign company and workers ( if AK-47 and company like eats away the money, without doing any work ! ) . Lucky we are that we don’t have that many Hurricane, twister and cyclone damages and snow-maintenance, like US,…… and still we cannot build good nicely drainage roads? Plugged drainage costs million in the damage and traffics, Cars, and other jobs, work and tons of annoyance. Pity !

^ I am living at smwhat such similar cul-de-sac where daily traffic is hardly of 10 cars coming and going,... and still, they paved and asphalted upper layer and repair it more than 5 times in just last 15 years,...when it was not needing the repair, at all,... !

In spite of all the planning and prep, it's devastating in Houston. Though they weren't expecting Harvey to stay in one place for this long. I only pray Mumbai doesn't get paralyzed with the rains. Praying for everyone's safety.

Re: It's Hammering ! Raining Cats and Dog ! Torrential rain ! Mumbai! - 9 times than usual Baarish !!

A hurricane brings with it, the amount and pressure,..rain and wind,... and a normal rain,.... der is a lot more difference,.. 80% of our problems are,...

improper grading of the road slopes,..

inadequate design of the sanitary and storm sewer pipe sizes, which can handle the certain flow of water,....

dumps and trash clogging the Drains, catch-basins,..

I am working in land development and planning business,.. and the big and hugh developments residential and warehouses, that I have designed...have never failed in sanitary and storm sewer handling,....
'Coz, I myself as a project manager , check the sub-ordinate's work and,. system with 3 diff equations, flow processing advanced software, ( stolen from previously worked companies / copied CDs ) three diff software and then applying the factors of safety to 1.8-2 times,.. and design never fails,..

We freaking Indians , even buy a milk bottle or a loaf of bread make sure that 89 cents is the lowest price and no1 in the god damn area can sell at that price while checking its price at 10s diff. locations,... This is a hundred thousand dollars of aandhan,.... We sometimes have challenged the county ( judge and court for us ) even.,... that this design will work, or will not work,... despite of their government's so called ( my foot ) genius engineers,.. !

Other day, near a park I showed a friend a canal. Told him it is 'storm water water drain'. I remembered this from my civil anjineer classes. It was so clean that kids were cycling on it. Then told him that such structures exist in India too, but public treats them as dump yards. Many get used as sewage drains. And that's why even on small rainfall, there are floods.

How about making drainage system more efficient? One complaint I have seen that 36k crores were allocated to BMC in 2005 but nothing has changed since then.

Bihar?? Who the fuck cares for that jungle?? Now Modi might care a bit more as Nitish has become his pet, but seriously, Mumbai is where it all matters as its the financial capital of India.

Bihar, Orissa, West Bengal, and those always-revolting-naxal fuckers in the eastern states can go take a hike!

Re: It's Hammering ! Raining Cats and Dog ! Torrential rain ! Mumbai! - 9 times than usual Baarish !!

Mumbai muicipal corporation or BMC is to blame 90% for such fiascos!

BMC has been ruled for last 20 years by Shiv Sena BJP combine with Shiv Sena in majority.

This time, the BJP surged ahead in elections, but had to keep quiet because Shiv Sena threatened to withdraw support from state government. So Shiv Sena has a free hand in the BMC and corruption continues unabated.

Shiv Sena continues to give contracts to black listed contractors. And BMC is the richest civic body in India. So you can put two and two together on why Shiv Sena wont let go of BMC.

Nothing will happen till next BMC elections. People got tired of Shiv Sena and so BJP saw a big increase in their seats. Next time, Shiv Sena wont be in a position to blackmail BJP.

Re: It's Hammering ! Raining Cats and Dog ! Torrential rain ! Mumbai! - 9 times than usual Baarish !!

In US, ( except the old towns and old areas built 100+ ysr ago and w/ CI pipe-lines - combined for sanitary and storm sewer carrying... ) the sanitary and sewer drains are different lines,... means, the surface drain-off from pavement will go to ONLY storm sewer lines and Toilet, and poo-piss kinda shitt goes to its sanitary sewer pipelines,..separately,... hence,.. every time design is so almost perfect, that in localities the flooding hardly happens sometimes at few entrances for a while,.. if it pours tremendously like a 10 yrs storm or 100 yrs storm ( it happens like that once in a 10 yrs ) .

Also the entire US lands have FEMA Maps, with 10 and 100 yrs flood plains lines properly shown ( that these areas are having probability of flooding once in a10 yrs ) and we have to obey all those diff easements and keep the development certain feet away from wetlands, flood plain line sand other so many drainage, electrical and building restriction line easements,..

India have for years ( till today ) the same pipelines for sanitary and storm sewer combined,.... ! US has less trouble for their water treatment plants to treat the surface drain of water to make it drinkable,. ( all catch-basins and storm sewer pipes,.... drains to a big water storage reservoir,.. )
