Want to save Elliot’s beach? 5

Filed under: Consumer caution,Games People Play,My Other Avtaar,Society — Geeta Padmanabhan @ 9:02 pm

I sent David’s opinion (previous post on this) about the plans to “beautify” Elliot’s beach to Mr. Satyanarayanan. Mr. S is the guy who organises the cleaning of the beach and gets men to double as lifeguards.
Mr. S I guess, is not convinced about what David said. He is a stubborn man. He has organised a public meeting on the beach (I asked  David why this was not done by the corporation) . The meeting is slated for 25 February  near the police booth between 5 and 6 pm.  Mr. S wants to have a free and frank discussion on the plans. He is a mild-mannered guy who wouldn’t hurt a fly. Be there if you are interested.
In this connection, I would like to bring to you this piece of information. Recently, the Delhi High Court was quite caustic while asking the Delhi Municipal Corporation why public toilets had not been made disabled-friendly in spite of the fact that it is a legislated necessity – that is, even if the corporation is dense enough not to realise that public buildings are meant for every person in the society.
