interior of a flooded house post disaster in mumbai by kunal bhatia

five years ago, on the 26th of july 2005, torrential rain, a cloud burst and governance apathy caused unprecedented floods in mumbai. my grandfather's house was under five feet of water for over 10 hours, and this is how one of the rooms looked after 2 days. endless muck, ruined furniture and belongings, an icky smell and a high chance of every object being contaminated. all this however pales in comparison to the hundreds who died or the thousands who lost their homes. have the powers-that-be learnt their lesson? not quite.
