Monsoon Raining

In this raining season whole city is flooded with water. Each highway, road, street and major points, chowks are facing water logging problem. Traffic jams due to water logging is a major hurdle. The above scene is common everywhere. Every year this situation occurs and before monsoon government, political leaders and local administration makes big claims about their preparations and activities all of which totally fails when rain starts. Sewerage system is cleaned before every monsoon but still when rain starts 3-4 feet water logging is common on all highways and roads. Recently Gurgaon Traffic jam on NH-8 and at IFFCO Chowk, Honda Chowk, etc. really created an emergency situation and whole administration / government is failed in that scenario.

I think the problem lies somewhere in basic cities planning of India because all main metro cities of India because water draining system / sewerage system is not designed / working properly. The water exist / drainage system is designed keeping in mind initial stage and scope for future development taken on that place in coming years is not estimated. Maintenance is also another major problem as government departments and red-tapism/bureaucracy is a major hurdle in implementation and completion of any work.  The solid waste/polythene during the rainy season blocks the flow of water in drainages/sewerages which in turn generates water logging problem and by the time local administration / government agencies takes action to clear that the situation becomes worst.

Another reason of above problem is that no open land area is now to absorb water inside the cities and everything is covered with concrete which stops water absorption power of earth.

Over and above that it must be thinked that how much loss of life and property happens due to above mentioned problems. Water logging damage the roads and accidents happens on these roads.

IF ANYBODY OF YOU KNOWS THE SOLUTION PLEASE WRITE.
