Highlighting a Major Safety Shortcoming at all Major Metro Stations at Delhi (and perhaps Other Cities too)

Tuesday, August 02, 2016

| | | | |

Rehana, a member of #bricksNmortar community has shared a couple of pictures she clicked yesterday evening at #Delhi 's #ChandniChowk #Metro Station exit near the historical Sis Ganj Gurudwara. 

It was raining harsh in the evening, and the already busy & crowded Chandni Chowk Metro Station got even more crowded unto the brim as people started standing at the station gates not willing to get wet in the rain. BricksNmortar Edesk is of the opinion that such crowded public places become a relatively danger zones once the flow of commuters/ passengers start swelling with every minute passing by.

Rehana briefly explained to us how the crowd, comprising of a varied mix of the elderly, toddlers, kids, women and men, became susceptible to a possible mishap with every passing minute and every unruly push from behind!

"It was quite a chaotic scene" she quipped. "No one was willing to walk outside the station gates and get drenched. The folks standing at the gate were getting pushed from behind from the people coming in from behind, unawares of the fact that the gates weren't getting vacated thereby making way for others to go. A mishap could easily have been on the cards. Luckily, the rain slowed down after almost an hour at around 19:30 hours IST, and the crowd started dispersing. The metro station complex housed in the basement area also got a bit ventilated with lesser crowd to handle."

Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) should ensure that the common passage areas at the exits of all major metro stations (if not all of them) be covered with translucent sheeting over light framed steel structure so that such areas remain lighted during the day, and can provide transit shelter to the people for a certain amount of time in case of situations like rain. This shall help keep the inside of the station complexes not too much crowded and therefore workable in contingent situations.

Though from the pictures it appears that some structural roofing work is in progress at Chandni Chowk station also, but as per the local vendors there, the work should have been completed long back. Hope DMRC and other related agencies take a note, and expedite the work at all the major metro stations.


Simple Yet Enchanting Guest House Building in a Remote Village in Central India

Sharing with our readers a simple but well maintained guest house in a remote village in Central part of India, the beauty of which lies in its simplicity, architectural evenness, level of detailing in its execution & serene white outlook sprinkled with a dash of contrast colour elements.

So, what exactly makes a building/ structure look elegant? Is it the architecture, or design elements, or the finish of the surfaces & details, or the paint shade combinations, or the dash of greenery to go alongwith as a refreshing contrast?

We believe its a bit of everything in certain right combinations amongst themselves. However, the key thing out of the aforecited factors that stands out and shout out loud in its favour-- its the finishes of the surfaces and intrinsic details therein along with right colour selection, which shows up as the key highlight points.

Opinions/ Comments / Observations , if any, are welcome

Its World Heritage Day today the primary purpose of which is to celebrate the uniqueness & importance of world's built cultural heritage.

It was on 18 April 1983 when #UNESCO initiated observing the day as International Day for Monuments and Sites. It aims to raise public awareness about the diversity and vulnerability of the world's built monuments and heritage sites and the efforts required to protect and conserve them.

The year 2016's theme for the International Day on Monuments and Sites is-- "The Heritage of Sport"

Dedicating today, 18th April 2016, to the heritage of sports has the purpose of celebrating the role of sports in the improvement of human life through the recognition and enhancement of specific types of monuments and sites; raising awareness on their values and the role they hold in shaping the cultural identity of concerned communities, at national, regional or local levels.

In general, a World Heritage Site is a place (such as a building, city, complex, desert, forest, island, lake, monument, or mountain) that is listed by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) as being of special cultural or physical significance (as defind by Wikipdia).

So, on this day today, lets all pledge and make a stronger resolve as a society, that we shall work towards protecting and preserving the heritage structures that we know about. It shall be helpful for us as well as our future generations to cherish and learn from.
