Reaction Time

from the article from the Hindu Business Line - Marooned in Mumbai. some excerpts
One could have lived with a calamity of tsunami proportions bringing down the country's business capital to a grinding halt; not sheer ineptitude by authorities who were found to have feet of clay in the hour of crisis.

"The authorities cannot keep blaming nature and try and hide during monsoons, wishing away a problem that needs to be faced squarely. This, especially in a city that is built on reclaimed land to the extent of 40 per cent on the island and 20 per cent in the suburbs," says Prof B. Arunachalam, historian and author of works such as Mumbai By Sea.

and of course
Though a week late, the government machinery had woken up to the calamity it was facing. But, for the millions of residents, it must have seemed pretty much like in many of the movies made in the city where the polic inevitably turn up after the hero has overpowered the villain.

The villain was still alive but enfeebled as the water levels did not quite rise to last Tuesday's (July 26) levels. The armed forces were seen moving around in flood-prone areas near the Mithi river, but there were no marooned citizens to be saved. It resembled a dry run for the real action that was to follow. Only, in this case, the action was already over.

There is more to the article that can be read here.
