CyberCity submerged

This is the plight of one of the posh colony of the Cyber City, Sector 51, Gurugram. The roads, park and even thresholds of houses got submerged in a short spell of rain on Wednesday. Three years ago, when this city was disturbed because of the incessant rain, it was feared that some foreign investments may receive a setback because of weak peripheral arrangements and lack of civil amenities. In three years, little seems to have improved beside cleanliness. The authorities concerned should take cognisance and make efforts to provide its residents a better place to live in as per assurance of the Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran.

Non-functional traffic lights

The Shaheed Major Sandeep Sagar Chowk in Panchkula has non-functional traffic lights for years together. The area becomes risk-prone during peak hours. Then one wonders about the rationale behind spending public money on the installation of lights. All attempts to put these non-functional traffic lights back to their functional mode, have miserably failed. Are the authorities listening?

Foodgrains' Wastage

Last week, on my way to Hisar it was still raining and I was surprised to see an open plinth where employees of a government agency were removing the tarpaulins spread over wheat stocks, instead of neatly covering them. They were doing this so that in moisture the grains may gain weight and that would be to their advantage. But in their greed, they were destroying the grains and rendering them unfit for human consumption. This is nothing but wastage of foodgrains. All relevant employees are always hand in gloves in this illegal operation. The authorities must take note.

Is a civic issue bothering you? Are you agitated over the lack of concern? Is there something heartening that you feel needs to be highlighted? Or a picture which in your opinion ought to be seen by many, and not just you?
