internal pipelines inside the compound is choked (Source: Arita Sarkar) Top News DESPITE living in a prime location such as Dadar West the 280-odd families in an 80-year-old housing society continue to deal with contaminated drinking water now a recurrent problem For three months last year the tenants of the Palan Sojpal society received foul-smelling water which left many sick Less than a year later the water is mucky once again and tenants are now pinning their hopes on their next local corporator While the problem of contaminated water would crop up occasionally in the past the situation worsened last year when the water could be clearly seen to contain worms “My son and brother suffered from jaundice and had to be hospitalised after they consumed the filthy water the society received for several months The water smelt so bad that everyone stopped using it” says 64-year-old C J Thakur one of the residents Watch What Else Is Making News: Some residents say the houses on the third floor are now receiving dirty water “The water we have been receiving for the last eight days is discoloured and smells really bad We have stopped using it Even after what happened last year the problem was not rectified entirely” says Vipul Shah (45) Without an immediate resolution in sight some households filter the water twice as a precaution The local corporator of Ward 185 is Maharashtra Navnirman Sena’s Sandeep Deshpande who is also the party’s leader in the BMC According to him an inspection on Wednesday morning has revealed that the society is receiving contaminated water because one of its internal pipelines inside the compound is choked “The society is around 80 years old and according to the BMC engineer the landlord needs to replace the entire internal pipeline system for a permanent solution” he says Many buildings in the neighbourhood suffer from similar problems An old locality where buildings await redevelopment Dadar West is plagued by civic issues intertwined with building issues “In buildings such as Palan Sojpal where there are multiple landlords owing to their internal fights redevelopment is difficult and the residents suffer because of it” says Deshpande He however adds that regardless of whether the MNS retains Ward 185 the party would continue to work for the residents of the ward Apart from their hopes of a consistent supply of clean water residents say another pressing concern is that of toilets SS Joshi 73 also a resident of Palan Sojpal says the BMC should ensure landlords follow with the norms of Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan “I suffered a stroke in 2012 which left my left leg paralysed It is an arduous task for me to wait for around 20 minutes in the queue for toilet every morning I want to construct one in my house and the BMC should help out senior citizens and disabled people” he says Similar is the story with other chawl buildings — too few toilet seats The annual monsoon nightmares of waterlogging and overflowing drains are also common complaints “Every year rainwater accumulates near the entrance gate and we all have to wade through knee-deep water Even the roads are in a terrible condition during heavy rains as potholes come up every year without fail which often lead to motorbike accidents” says 31-year-old Miren Shah Under the Swachh Bharat Abhiyaan the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation had implemented door-to-door collection of garbage At the time even though the BMC had claimed to have removed all open garbage containers in the city three of them continue to sit in the middle of the society’s compound While Dadar has long been a stronghold of the Shiv Sena the MNS made its presence felt in the area in 2012 Of the 11 electoral wards in G North ward five are represented by corporators from the MNS While residents laud the work of MNS corporators some are now pledging support to the Sena though MLAs and corporators from both the MNS and the Sena visited the society to help when the

Chandigarh | Published: May 2 2016 8:00 am H S Johl at his farm house in Chandigarh Top News What should be our concern about urban planning and landscape with Chandigarh trying to make it to the smart city list A primary concern is to tackle the problem of slums The administration is planning to construct 20000 dwelling units for rehabilitation of slums dwellers who have encroached upon prime land This is not appropriate Any mechanism that does not involve slum dwellers as capital partners is bound to fail Instead of constructing new dwelling units the administration should upgrade the civic amenities including water electricity and sewerage We can take a cue from Himanshu Parikh the planning engineer and recipient of the Aga Khan Award for Architecture who has solved the problem of over 10 lakh slum dwellers in Gujarat and under Indore Habitat project Another essential requirement is to implement the concept of developing the city as a park Trees can do wonders in developing the city Where is Chandigarh lacking when it comes to green cover While Chandigarh is the greenest city it would have achieved perfection had the functional requirements essential for growing trees been adopted and implemented from the beginning There is a great opportunity to improve the landscaping of the roads parks open spaces and areas around buildings There is need for replanting rectify these mistakes and plan ahead to provide a beautiful habitat and picturesque greenery for the city and to counter effects of pollution What measures should cities like Delhi and Chandigarh take to fight pollution Delhi’s odd-even scheme is the immediate solution However for a permanent one it is necessary that all the spaces are extensively and continuously planted with large structured durable indigenous kinds of trees Green tunnels with strong tall trunks and spreading crowns will have to be developed and created In Chandigarh areas around Mohali Panchkula suburbs and villages need intensive greening to prevent this city from pollution Are there fundamental rules of tree plantation Is Chandigarh following them Yes Firstly use of large structured sturdy durable trees meeting aesthetic requirements enhance urban elements rather than hiding them Trees need to be developed as a tall single trunk with vast spreading crown that create green tunnels Secondly dense plantations fill up spaces in the shortest possible period Thirdly single kind of tree species need to be used at a specific site to develop a single whole Planting of trees need to be done close to the road curb to separate vehicular and pedestrian traffic Overhead electric lines are required to be installed away from the crowns of the trees Flowering trees are structurally small in size and should be used for landscaping of buildings parks open spaces and homes The Tricity has not followed these requirements owing to which the ideal results have not been obtained Does Chandigarh need a separate landscape advisory committee for this Chandigarh’s planning and architectural designing may have been done by Le Corbusier However Dr M S Randhawa the first chief commissioner of Chandigarh was instrumental in developing it as the greenest and most beautiful city of the country After his death in 1986 the landscape committee and the landscape wing meant to take care of the landscape projects did not survive Landscaping of the city is as important as town planning and architecture This city therefore needs an independent department of landscape to carry out improvement and preserve landscape features here You have been critical of palm plantation en route the international airport to Mohali Palm is a small-sized plant whose crown has scanty foliage and looks like a dead log of wood installed around wide roads It is unable to provide green cover or protect one from scorching summer heat and winter blast It also cannot provide oxygen consume carbon-dioxide and reduce dust wind velocity or global warming It is not appropriate to use this plant on an important approach road like the international airport How effective is the forest and wildlife department in increasing the green cover The forest and wildlife department of Chandigarh does not have the expertise to handle the landscape projects of the city They have got about 7000 acres on the northeastern Shivalik hills side of the city which forms a catchment of the lake They should grow valuable timber trees in this area so that it may take the shape of a national park It should become a recreational natural area where people can mingle with nature The forest department has got another about 3000 acres along Sukhna Choe and Patiala-Ki-Rao which should also be planted with superior quality timber trees in a planned manner This will improve the greenery of the city and control pollution How do we save trees while developing infrastructure Trees take a long time to develop their personality and become fully functional So tree plantation has to be incorporated into the initial design and planning of city roads The reason this is not done widely is because of financial constraints But appropriate space has to be assigned for trees from the beginning as things cannot be altered once they have attained maturity To plan for increased traffic needs in the future additional space should be provided in the central verge of the road This will allow for road widening towards the central verge rather than sides and hence avoid any removal of trees You have also compared works of Lutyens in Delhi and Le Corbusier in your books (Trees in Urban Habitat & Landscaping Human Habitat) and emphasised on the importance of trees Trees are vital and growing them is the cheapest and most effective for greening beautification improvement and preservation of environment All other landscape materials such as lawns ground covers shrubberies decorative plants and seasonal flowers are relatively expensive and do not contribute much in improving environment As the head of the landscape wing in Chandigarh I was part of the engineering department which brought me in close contact with town planners architects and engineers who I felt had no idea about landscaping So I decided to pen books on trees and landscape Any suggestions for tree protection and conservation A Chinese proverb says ‘If you wish to be happy for an hour drink wine If you wish to be happy for three days get married If you wish to be happy for eight days kill your pig and eat it But if you wish to be happy forever become a gardener’ Gardening should be taught in primary and middle schools to inculcate the spirit of love for plants From childhood children should know about tree protection and conservation For
