Natural Disasters: A Consequence of Failed Policies

Natural Disasters: A Consequence of Failed Policies

The govt should enforce policies and regulations which limit the extent of forest land that can be legally converted for non-forest use. Torrential rain and floods have caused devastation in Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana and Delhi. Natural disasters have become a frequent worldwide phenomenon in recent years. The governments and the people will think that ‘this too shall pass’ and ignore it. But nature won’t relent.

One can attribute the recent floods and landslides to policy failure. Himalayan states have become the hub of tourism, with a sharp rise in personal income and a flourishing demand for recreational activities.

Contours of Caste-Class in Bengaluru Floods

When I was a kid, I remember my home in Bengaluru flooding repeatedly, especially during the monsoons. This was strange as we were in Chamarajpet, a well-planned neighbourhood developed by the visionary Dewan Sheshadri Iyer, along with Malleshwarm and Basavanagudi neighbourhoods, to settle those who lived in the petes (trading and living zones combined) of the old fort town that Bengaluru was then as the bubonic plague had ravaged and decimated the population as the 19th century rolled into the 20th.
