Take care of Mumbai


P Senthil Saravana Durai

Right now I am working in Mumbai which I have been fond of right from my college-years like 1998. The fact is that Mumbai which is fondly known as India’s Financial Capital City is crying for attention on various fronts. To begin with, the city lacks proper flyovers and foot-over-bridges, creating traffic/transport problems that pose grave danger to the people. Then comes noise menace wherein the people have to bear the brunt of the noise pollution caused by the vigorous transport/rail networks.
As for the rail network, the huge chunks of the people are being transported by this network on a daily basis, often in bad condition that has unfortunately not caught the attention of the powers so far. Besides, the lack of proper footpaths, the scarcity of strong police patrol, the shortage of good libraries and the dearth of beautiful parks are all adding to Mumbai’s woes.To be frank and honest, I have personally felt and observed all these things. To top it all, Mumbai needs more good schools and colleges that will mould the young minds into good shape.
Interestingly, I have during my job tenure seen and visited many good schools and colleges in my native places like Tuticorin, Palayamkottai, Tirunelveli, Tiruchendur, Nagercoil, Kanyakumari, Kaliayakkavilai and Marthandam, all in Tamil Nadu, India. And I am really wondering [concerned as to] why these beautiful institutes are missing in Mumbai City. Hence, I request the authorities to kindly look into these serious and basic issues and set right the things as soon as possible.
