So much has been said about this that it has started sounding trite..But who can challenge the fact that hardly anything has been done toprevent the venomous effects of the "development" of the city? Far from being checked, the problem has only aggravated.The green city has now become grey city thanks to choppingdown of trees ,exponential increase in traffic and the vanishing lakes.
Bangalore once boasted a water body population of over 400 lakes whichwas the primary, perhaps the only source of drinking water for thecity habitants. It has now dwindled to just 64. And the ones thatremain are being encroached upon with experts commenting that they tooshall vanish from the map of the city.
No wonder when it rains, the drains overflow and the water has nowhereto go except to the city dwellings in the low-lying areas. The city'sbiggest attractions are proving to be its worst undoing.
Dont be surprised if you find that your house happens to be constructed on a lake bed!chk this out!
