Remember this Bellandur Lake in Bengaluru?
The one with that really ugly and unhealthy foam you thought was snow (how dumb though!)?
This disgusting waste of a city populating itself without appropriate infrastructure, has saturated the lake's ability to take all the human shit being dumped into it.
Well, now that foam has caught fire. The lake collects most of coty's untreated sewage water and irrespective of many protests, authorities remain unmoved. According Durga Madhab of IISC (Indian Institute of Science)," Air particles emanating from the river were causing a burning sensation in people’s eyes.The froth contains bubbles which on bursting forms mist in the air. These particles in the mist maybe chemical or toxic in nature and when it comes in contact with the skin surface or nasal passage, can cause irritation,” he told NewsMinute.
Quite obviously residues of oil, grease and inflammable material in the presence of increasing atmospheric temperature led to such a bizzare phenomena.
Our god damn lakes are catching fire!!
What else seems like the right time to wake up and do something?
