A tale of two cities

Issue Date: Oct 31, 2012

Various types of fuels, tire wear, batteries and brake emissions release significant amounts of heavy metals into the environment.

‘Don’t plug this hole’

Issue Date: Aug 15, 2011
It has been six years since the July 26 deluge, but the fear of flood during monsoons still lingers among Mumbaikars. Especially among the residents of Mumbai’s western suburbs who have been facing severe waterlogging for the past six years. The city municipal corporation claims to be well prepared this year; it is cleaning all the stormwater drains. Residents of Char-kop in Kandivali West, however, believe restoring a 50-year-old lake can end their worries.
