  1. Would you look at that!
    Our Belagavi City is such a smart city that even our hospitals get automatic washing!!!

  2. This is bound to happen if we continue to reclaim lakes and ponds. Remember 15 to 20 years back there used to be a pond / small lake below the Railway over bridge near station. This area was reclaimed to build many commercial and residential complex. Water from Nanawadi, Camp will flow towards this low lying area in case of heavy downpour. Hope the authorities take cognizance of this in future and stop fiddling with nature by reclaiming lakes/ponds.

  3. The area where these hospital & houses are built is water logged area since decades…
    we should give space for drain water to flow else this is the condition.

  4. Water continuously flowing inside my house since last night. My parents are old and they need help. Please stop the same by spreading Khadi/Bolders/ Murrum at garden side so that water will stop. Please help them, they are old.
