Inefficient solid waste management results in waste piles that contribute to urban flooding in cities like Chennai. While most citizens blame civic authorities for the lapse, are they doing their bit?

Come November, along with swollen waterways and flooded streets, another prominent image flashed repeatedly on television screens is that of mountains of mixed garbage. Chennai’s solid waste headache is by no means entirely monsoon-related. But the issue manages to capture the media’s attention around this time of the year mostly because unregulated dumping tends to disrupt waterways in many parts. Intensified waterlogging and heightened public health concerns closely follow.

Increase in human activities in the Western Ghats is threatening the biodiversity. A video tells us why investing in nature is the need of the hour.

The Western Ghats is one of the eight hotspots of biological diversity in the world and is spread across six states—Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. The forests in the Western Ghats are the water towers of peninsular India. As many as 58 major rivers originate here, including the sacred Godavari, the Cauvery and the Krishna.

We pump bore water for storage for drip irrigation purpose into a open well that has no great yield in our farm in south western Tamil Nadu in the arid foot hill areas of western Ghats. Recently due to drought the water pumped into the well from bore also gets absorbed and dried. The well is rocky in nature below 6-8 feet and 153sq.ft. What can we do to save the bore water?
