Frail Mumbai

Vikrum Sequeira has posted aboutthis article in the NYT. While the views and news are old by now, I'm glad this point was reiterated:
"Mumbai's ambitions to become a world-class city like Shanghai, as it was once suggested, or Dubai, as it was suggested before that, fell under a wet blanket. That it happened in India's iconic city of strivers, and not in some destitute corner, only highlight the bricks-and-mortar challenge - or rather, sewage and storm-drain challenge - that faces a country keen for a seat on the United Nations Security Council."
