Of Cheetahs & Water woes

Read in TOI yesterday that the cheetah is going to be imported from africa & tried to be inducted back into the wild.
Environment and forests minister Jairam Ramesh told Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, “The cheetah is the only animal that has been declared extinct in India in the last 1,000 years. We have to get them from abroad to repopulate the species.”
Dude! Are you guys crazy?!? We all know what is happening to the Tigers & Lions we all have in our “Reserves”. Why bring them back just have them slaughtered? The thought process of these guys is completely warped…first you should have a plan in place to defend the assets you already have & then add to it further. *shakes head*
Again you can see this convoluted thinking in trying to solve the water problem in pune. You know that our monsoon is fickle & we have a water problem. But you get down to it when you are in the middle of the crisis. Boring wells etc. could have been done already & tankers should have been standing by to swing into action instantly. Instead we now have hurried digging, resulting in chaos & unnecessary pressure. The tanker owners are charging exorbitant prices & blackmailing the citizens. All this could have been avoided with a little foresight…nitwits
We are to have water cuts through out the day, but have no idea when these cuts will take place. If we had the information we could stock up on drinking water etc. for daily use. Instead here I am waiting, or rather, hoping for the water to come back on, so that I may brush my teeth & get ready...
Incompetence is frustrating!!!!!
