For the nth time the so-called "hi-tech" city was turned topsy-turvy due to an onslaught of torrential rain. Roads and houses flooded, lives lost due to drowning (yes!), traffic brought to a standstill - the feeling of deja vu is complete. Scores of localities were submerged under water 5-feet deep, the cargo terminal at the airport was overrun by water. The scenario repeats itself year after year and yet nothing is done. Why is that a nation that can build nuclear bombs and think of sending people to the moon can't build a proper drainage system?
