Delhi Drowns in Monsoon Mayhem

The Signal Daily

Jul 11 2023 • 13 mins

Delhi is drowning and casualties have been reported because of walls collapsing to trees getting uprooted. But why is Delhi drowning? Poor urban planning. And how did we reach here? We answer this question and more in today's episode.

We also have Devashish Dhar, former public policy specialist at Niti Aayog and author of India’s Blind Spot joining us on this episode. He basically lists out various reasons that led to urban flooding in Delhi. Additionally, in 2022, we covered about Bengaluru and the infrastructural issues that led to waterlogging last year. Find the episode here.

In other news, we are talking about Ras Al Khaimah becoming the new luxury destination in the UAE. Tune in!
