India’s most modern, elite, high tax paying, tech savvy city Bangalore is not able to manage its storm water drainage .. and that too, being situated at an altitude of ~ 1000 m.

Now Bangaloreans and Hyderabadis would not be able to point at Mumbai or Chennai or Kolkata, which are at or near mean sea level, when they face serious water logging. 

Bangalore has faced many other water problems this year - lack of potable water supply, when Cauvery was near dry at the beginning of summer; a foaming Belandur lake, which indicates horrible sewer and industrial discharge pollution; and now these water logging .. the sad part is that Bangalore has been facing these issues year after year!

Have a look at what Tokyo (at the sea level) is thinking to mitigate an ultra-flood

Of course, Bangalore doesn't need the Tokyo solution for sure, which could be for a Mumbai or Chennai! 

Bangalore needs to think and collaborate - between sewerage and sanitation authorities, water supply authorities, ground water authorities, utility managers, scientists and innovators with global experience, community workers, academia and everybody interested in a Sustainable lifestyle in Bangalore to mitigate the water crisis.

Indian miners never bothered about product development and enhancing the value of their assets ..

Miners to upskill or perish. more fines served to miners by Odisha Govt Coal India mulls minerals mining. Adani secures 1/3 Of coal supply contract put out by CIL under special scheme
