What is our White Elephant – National Disaster Management Authority - doing?

If Chennai is not a disaster what is. Is NDMA a refined fire brigade services, or crane services or owners of couple of life boats? Is this the reason why we have a high sounding bunch of incompetent, myopic and completely clueless morons in Delhi so that the whole country may fall into a false sense of security and safety that we have something which will manage disaster in India?

 

Just think what they must be doing just now - they must be talking with the US and EU for how to manage disaster when the aliens strike or how to save the VIPs during a nuclear attack or 3 Word War or definitely how should they take a huge land from the government to build a massive office and staff them with their kith and kin.

 

No one dare ask them as to what they are doing for it – whether they are learning and mapping the possible course of immediate action from every disaster which happens in this country in the meantime; are they observing and studying other nations and see how they manage disaster; are they compiling a list of possible disasters and their worst case scenarios; are they designing contingency plans; are they categorizing every kind of disasters and grading the extent of their responses to each; are they making people aware of these things; do they have code of conduct for people to follow in case of such disasters.

 

Somehow the Chennai floods have proved conclusively that we are being governed by sub-standard human beings. If the normal man on the street can think of apps to manage information, the need to keep communication alive, the need for power, ration and drinking water at such disaster. Why the people in charge not able to do that.

 

Such agencies, such administration and such governments - can they expect any respect from the people? And still Lakhs of Crores of public money is handed over to them to run the country. If this is running the country then we definitely have chosen runners on crutches.
