Is this going to become common place in Bangalore as well? It might just be, 'cause we are building up and drying out all the lakes and where water used to collect in the earlier days. When it rains heavily there is no where for this water to run off into and that can be fatal.

This picture is obviously from one of the coastal areas where the water does not go down, with inexorable sea level rise. I wonder how many will keep smiling for the camera especially when diseases like cholera and malaria besides the debilitating Chikangunya and Dengu hit.

I think our administrators have to be stopped when they start drying out tanks and encroaching on wetlands. Otherwise, this is the soon to be common scenario in all cities, not just the coast.
