Bengaluru, the Indian city which is famous for being the IT hub of the country is currently in news for all the wrong reasons as majority of the city is waterlogged after heavy rains.
Though Bengaluru is known for its pleasant weather, currently its citizens are living under very tough conditions as there is no electricity and no drinking water supply in many areas (Kormangala, Whitefield, Bellandur, HSR Layout, Sarjapur, etc.) of the city.
Price of property here is Rs 8 crore upwards!

Many videos are getting circulated on the social media platforms in which roads, posh societies, etc. can be seen submerged in water. The office going people are facing a lot of problems as they can’t take leave because the work will get affected and it is taking 2-3 hours for them to reach office. In fact in few videos, it can be seen that tractors and JCBs are being used for transport purposes.

If that was not enough, even boats are used in some areas for the purpose of providing necessary items such as milk and grocery to people.

Some people are of the opinion that the nature is giving it back to the citizens of Bengaluru as they have occupied the space of lakes of the city.
The message is crystal clear. "You occupied our space. Now we have come back." Said by all lakes in Bangalore (crying)#Bangalore #bangalorefloods #bangaloreweather #bangalorerain #bangalorerains #bbmp #SarjapurRoad #Sarjapur #sarjapura #BellandurFloods #bellandur pic.twitter.com/ElrpPQlon8

As per the reports, the IT companies of Bengaluru have incurred losses to the tune of Rs. 225 crores due to waterlogging and rain and the Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai has promised that he will discuss with the management of these companies as to what they want should be done next.
However, there were many who didn’t miss the chance of having fun by creating memes and jokes. Here are some selected ones:

Can someone invest in this idea?

The government and other departments are working pretty hard to handle the situation and hopefully things will get better soon.
