This Year Has Been a Wake-Up Call for Us: Bhumi Pednekar

Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar took to social media on Friday to alert citizens about what is coming in the future

This year has been a wake-up call for us, and if we do not work towards maintaining a balance, our cities will continue to flood, feels Bollywood actress Bhumi Pednekar.

It has been raining incessantly in Mumbai and adjacent areas since Monday evening, with water-logging being reported from several parts of the city and minor landslides in Malad and Malabar Hill.

“What Mumbai saw in the last two days was devastating amount of rain. There were some places that were badly affected. The videos and articles are so scary and heartbreaking. This year has been a wake-up call,” Bhumi posted on her verified Instagram story.

“The concrete jungles will live in and the rapid urbanisation is not the answer. We will flood because there is no place for our water to go. It’s all concrete! Most of our cities are in the same state and are affected by different climate emergencies like lack of water or too much of it, toxic levels of pollution, depletion of nutrition etc. Development is important but there has to be a balance. Small changes make a huge difference,” added the actress.

Gusty winds of upto 70 kmph speed on Wednesday uprooted over a hundred trees, jamming many roads in several parts of the city. (IANS)
