BKC - bombay killer complex

i read this interview first more than a year ago (sometime after 26/7 floods in mumbai).

some of the points that chandrashekar makes regarding bandra-kurla complex, the sea link and the east west connection plan via mumbai metro are quite a revelation.

if ones recalls the floods, the focus of everyone post facto was the mithi river.

in my little experience, it must rank as the top raped natural resource in the world. where else will one have a airport runway built over a river. yes, the river flows in pipes under the runway. can you make out the black streak disappearing under the horizontal tarred surface...awesome isn't it.

will make interesting reading, this most-raped-natural-resource list.
sonia writes an interesting story on the mithi river development authority.
