Civic apathy is killing Bandra talav

Civic apathy is killing Bandra talav

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?
