I have heard year to date rain is not yet 50%; has there been more rain lately?
Its raining heavily since the last two days, so the gap must have been reduced substantially :)

The so called beliefs that you mock, never asked anyone to put dead bodies in river or shit in it, even bathing is not true, it's just taking a dip (hope you know the difference)... The law can start there itself, only allow "asthi"in the river... That would go a long way in improving the river's condition. It's funny to see Hinduism being bashed in such ignorant manner... whatever happened to being civil. Education doesn't play any part in such activities, control is what matters.. People should first know what Hinduism asks to do instead of doing what they want to do and then say "It's in my religion, what can i do? "
Agreed! Throwing the dead body started mainly because people couldn't afford the costs of the final rituals on one hand and on the other hand, couldn't break the promises that they had made to their deceased relatives that their final cremation would be done in Varanasi. Atleast cremation and final rituals should be made available to people who desire that in an affordable way by the government, by constructing the necessary infrastructure for the same. Belief systems are something that cannot be changed and it is only the duty of an efficient government to accommodate the belief systems into their quest for modernity.

Dont be...you've got the Marina beach, which is also really awesome :cheers:

I go there everytime I visit Chennai.
The beaches are awesome but I wish that we could do the same for our two rivers .

Anyway , getting back on topic , I think it would be a terrific idea to have murals line the walkway .Once the trees grow , it will look spectacular .

Going off topic again , monsoons have really picked up now . Ahmedabad received over 100 mm in the last two days and I see the max yesterday was only 26C !
