Seven storeys came up in just six weeks, with sub-standard material. An eighth was under construction when the building caved in on itself. Homes, offices and shops had been set up within the building without an occupancy certificate.


"Ninety per cent of buildings in Mumbra are illegal," Thane Municipal Commissioner RA Rajeev told NDTV.

Many of my native born colleagues expressed sarrow at the deaths. But several of them also were surprised at the regularity with boats over turn, miners get buried, people get crushed in large gatherings etc.
Personal greed that turns systems into criminal enterprise leading to regular loss of human life and huge economic loss will keep india from being a successful nation.
