Planners destroyed cities

Yoginder K. Alagh writes in Indian Express with less concern that “the urban pessimists in India said that urbanisation was not rising, would not and should not rise fast. They were some of my best friends and colleagues at the Sardar Patel Institute, JNU and the Planning Commission. My argument that the urbanites had a point went unheeded”. Further no sign of lust he says “I said but I was asked to keep quiet. In those days after saying India was growing fast you ducked”.

Everything is challenge in the hands of any governments.

What Sauvik says in contrast is quite possible in building the big cites with out of too much governments and their stupidity.
