Moving Mumbai out of Mumbai

The ongoing debate on saving Mumbai will end with a whimper. Most of us will go back to our daily lives and the powers that run the city will go back and build more buildings, ban dance bars, choke rivers, in short grind Mumbai to a halt. Till another disaster strikes again.

Here is an interesting article on Moving Mumbai out of Mumbai

A passing thought: why do I bother to pay road tax, motor vehicle tax, property tax, muncipal tax, and so on and so forth if I have to bear with non governance. Should we not file a PIL asking the government for a refund? or atleast the right to refuse to pay the sundry taxes? since the government does not want to do anything for the common person who pays his dues on time.

Or will people like me who think like this be charged with treason?
