A proactive Indian Local Body
Is there something like this – does Proactive and Indian Bureaucracy go on the same sentence ever. I was pleasantly surprised to see the news today in Mumbai Mirror, that the Mumbai Local Body is taking Proactive measures to handle the monsoon season. The article talks about how local grounds have been booked for parking vehicles during heavy rains, on how companies like SBI have volunteered to sponsor food for the affected people and how health measures have been planned.
Of course since I am not a Mumbaikar so I can’t vouch for the true meaning and the impact of the above, but still even the thought of it I feel should be appreciated and copied by other cities or at least the metros administrators. Chennai begs for something like this.
