From "Trivandrum Lobby"
Hi Sunil,Hello members,
Coming back to you after a day of rest here in Sharjah,I was struck by the sight of dewatering happening in one of the busy roads of Dubai flooded after a pipe burst, in the days paper.It reminded me of the flooding of the Pazhavangadi area after a flood.This problem has evaded a solution after having spent Crores of funds and manpower.It has remained a gordion knot all these years making a mockery of the efforts done till date.It remains a source of embezzlement to many a soul who have not made any determined effort to resolve the issue.Many experts have made it out into a naturally happening problem due to the topography of the city.While natural factors may be there it is the man made factors which accentuate the issues to such an extent .Piecemeal works done to pacify the suffering residents has made the situation more worse than before.It comes as abig surprise that the flooding issues come up only days before the floods happen and are forgotten after the rains recede.This is a factor well understood by the departments and misused by the forces who stand to gain. The simple logic for resolving the problem will be to resolve the manmade problems and the naturally occuring factors will take care by itself.The causative factors of the issue, the topography, is the solution for the problem.Proper utilisation of the topographical features of the city will reveal a solution which can take care of this issue with minimal expense and effort.This solution may not fit into the plans of the establishment but it will certainly alleviate the suffering of the citizens of Trivandrum.I am throwing this thread open to a discussion to remedy the Pazhavangadi flooding issue now, so that we can come up with a credible and cost effective permanent solution at the earliest. I find that most of the members of this forum are from the Engineering fraternity.I request our members to contribute some time and effort to find an everlasting solution to the problem.Lets prove that a peoples initiative can resolve a issue for ever.
It would be a big help to us if you can sort it in paragraphs and bold the sentences/words of high priority. So that we can follow a quick reference through it, if the time isnt enough to read the full story.. Hope you can support us to read ur posts in a much easier way.
