A father carries on his shoulders his 3 year old son, as the father walks waist deep in monsoon floodwaters seeking to escape the floods and carry his child to safety.
Monsoon floods happen every year in India and every year people are in flood-distress. I wonder what is the solution to flood-distress? Better infrastructure like concrete drains linked to concrete waterways linked to reservoirs which save water for the dry season? I wonder who will build this infrastructure? How will this infrastructure be built? Who will pay for this infrastructure? The development of poor nations like India is a mystery to me. I wonder how poor flood-prone villages in India will develop the needed infrastructure to prevent monsoon flooding?
