Multi-storey on ECR

While many part of the country experience (enjoys) monsoon, the Chennai remain hot and humid throughout. Though we passed the hotter summer days in May, the last two weeks have been terrific hot and the heat waves continue to last till nights keeps away the thought of coming out of home. Not only the earth, atmosphere, throat and tongues but also my mind dries up expose to high temperature (38 degree) and I also couldn't think or interested to do anything. But a sudden rain this evening has brought a brief relief and cheer to life. 

Although it continues to rain/drizzle, the environment couldn’t achieve quite refreshing and the warmth continues to survive among the ambiance esp. within our home. It was the same time last year, on June 28; a heavy thunderstorm struck the city where an 11 storey building, which was under construction, went rubble killing 61 people in Moulivakam, near Porur. A site where two 11 storeys were built, with one fell down and another, which was suppose to demolish by authorities since experts believe it’s unfit to become a residential complex and even before it was done a year has completed.

Here is a picture I shot on ECR, a road parallel to IT corridor, multi-stories are new to this part of landscape that stretches close to seashore. I find about 4 to 5 projects coming up on this road, which is emerging as a Nation Highways (NH) from the scenic beach road because of the road widening. Hope there isn’t a repetition of Moulivakam incident anywhere.

The govt. officials are easy to bribe and get approval for such buildings near the beach. Even after the horrible incident they are not worried about the danger of building multi stories where the ground/soil might not be fit for carrying such huge buildings. People should not buy. Will people do that?

Hope this time they've taken care of all the possible loopholes.

I hope the new ones are planned properly and all safety measures are in place. The govt. has to be more careful now, after that incident. And yes, the rains are welcome :)

In an attempt to save themselves from sky rocketing cost the builders have compromised on the quality.

There are too many tall buildings all over the world today and yet some try to compete by building tallest ones. There is no end to it.
