an independent journalist and author noted that after the Chennai floods,studies had found that cloudbursts (rainfall of over 100mm in an hour) would continue to happen Thushumans will have to live with the weather conditions as they are and be prepared to face heavy rains from time to time Deulgaonkar feels actions at the micro-level must take place to better combat the rains He says that there are no shortcuts to blunt the monsoon’s impact but cities must look at better water management and garbage disposal to solve these issues In particular he mentions the fact that the storm water passes through the sewage pipelines which come under stress in the monsoon This also leads to wastage of water He says that the separation of the storm water pipes and sewage pipes should be taken up at the earliest Lack of preparation Taking the example of Hurricane Harvey which has hit the US Mhaske said that abundant public warnings and the presence ofmitigation plans reduced the impact of the hurricane The lack of the same in Mumbai is the reason why the city suffered so heavily despite the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) issuing a warning days before the actual event Deulgaonkar too flags the Texas example as one which showed planning This led many lives being saved and weakenedthe impact of the hurricane Ineffective leadership The lack of a leader was also acutely felt during the floods No one from the BMC the state government or the administration was seen as taking charge of the situation Mhaske says that while the local government needs to take the lead some blame also lies with the political leadership and its head the chief minister Deulgaonkar mentions the pre-monsoon meetings which take place between various stakeholders in the month of April Representatives from the state administration the Disaster Management Authority the Railways the Navy and Airport authority among others take part in this meeting The idea is to come up with a collective disaster risk reduction plan to deal with the rains However a lack of political and administrative will means that these meeting rarely amount to much Local government must step up The good side of Mumbai was also visible in these tough times as non-state apparatus kicked into gear with corporates ganesh pandals gurudwaras celebrities and common Mumbaikars offering help to those stranded away from home Mhaske says there is a need to better integrate these actions with the government machinery If the government could coordinate with these community centres then thatcould help the citizens to a much larger degree Mhaske also insists that the local government must be made accountableto the people He mentions the Principle of Subsidiarity which states thatdecisions must be taken at the most local level Further there is also a need for citizens to develop a better civic sense and take ownership of the city They must get involved in the local government and ensure that the administrators are actually held responsible There is also a dire need to reorient our priorities or at least those of our leaders A study by the Praja Foundation found that while storm water drainage was one of the leading causes of civic complaints by Mumbai citizens between 2014to 2016 it only formed a minuscule portion (42 percent) of the questions asked by ward councillors at Ward Committee meetings The highest number of questions were reserved for "Naming/Renaming of Roads/Chowks " Better management of the monsoons is not unachievable However as Deulgaonkar says shortcuts are futile and there must be long-term action Otherwise every year the city will grind to a halt as the rain gods make merry With inputs from PTI Click here forLIVE updates on the Mumbai rains The Allahabad High
