'Alas! Delhi would never be the same again' - by K.J.S.Chatrath

I say this with lot of sadness that Delhi, including New Delhi would never be the same again.

One has been complaining about traffic congestion and terrible pollution in Delhi. But wait for what is in store for Delhi-ites.

National Building Construction Corpn. is going to build a huge, yes really huge World Trade Centre in the very heart of New Delhi on the Ring Road on the orders of Government. It would be bang opposite the AIMS and Safdarjung Hospitals. It appears that the plan is to have 12 Towers of commercial space, each Tower having 10 floors.

Just imagine the pollution that the added traffic would add to already gasping for breath Delhi! And traffic would see many fold increase in congestion.

On the one hand one talks about de-congesting Delhi and on the other hand we have this. Even if this Centre has to be in Delhi, why not in Dwarka or Janakpuri or Rohini areas, for example.  

It is a really sad development  ....
