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.



Yesterday a spell of pre monsoon rain comes to Delhi, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand giving much needed relief. As per expectation monsoon will reach north India by July 12. As we all knows that in previous two weeks due to so much heat everyone is talking about rain and delay of monsoon seeded a fear in government, farmers and everybody that this year we have to face a drought like situation and Indian economy which is already under pressure due to Global Meltdown will further decline and prices of food items which are already very high will further go up. Problem of Power & Water is so big because of declining water levels in major dams like Tehri, Bakhra, etc. and major rivers are on the verge of end. Many parts of the northern india farmers who are dependent on rivers water through canals may not get water and production of kharib may be affected.

So lets pray & hope that rain will come soon and all problems gets solved.

2008 RAIN

This year monsoon is very good all over India and especially in North India, I hope that crops will be very good this season. I want to mention / discuss regarding the raining/monsoon in our country on following points:


If we could harvest rain water it will solve the all problem of water faced by every citizen especially in summers. But as per my knowledge we are not looking forward in this direction neither the government had made any rule and regulation regarding rain water harvesting nor any NGO is working in this direction.  We generally construct houses starting from 20 sq. yards to 1000 sq. yards and spent between 3-5 lacs to 15–25 crores for construction of house but never we thinks about creating a system for rain water harvesting and the same water blocks the drainage system and due to that water gets lodged on roads .


We have seen and experienced many problems due to logged water on each and every roads and our daily routine gets highly affected due to same. The solution is to make proper drainage system and the regular maintenance / cleaning of drainage system must be in place. High quality roads must be constructed in scientific manner overtaking the corruption involved so that they do not brake in rainy season.

·        Flood Control

If we use the rain water in scientific way then we can also save loss of life and asset happens due to floods in rainy season, as happened this in Bihar and Assam.

·        INFLATION

Inflation will come under control up to some extent as predicted by our some economy financial experts.


 I am sure that if we take imitative about above mentioned points it will provide so too benefits to our nation.


Kindly suggest me more points for the same.
