Civic apathy is killing Bandra talav

    Civic apathy is killing Bandra talav
    Mumbai  -  

    The Bandra Lake, better known as Bandra talav, is an iconic landmark, part of the historical heritage of the city. The nearly 200 year old lake was built by a Muslim. Its maintenance is now the BMC's responsibility but is the civic administration doing enough?

    The lake needs beautification work so that it can become a popular hangout for the local residents. But the current sorry state of the lake means that it has become a joint for  dopers, drunkards and their ilk. Local residents say they have complained to the BMC several times about the bad condition of the lake and about the anti-social elements who have claimed it as their own.

    The lake, where locals would once frequent for boating, often wears a deserted look. Will the BMC pay heed to the calls of this perishing lake?
