Fountains Demand Attention

As a part of making beautiful Pondicherry, fountains were constructed at various parts of the town. But the fact is most of them are neither in working condition nor paid attention. The fountains at Rajiv Gandhi Square, Indira Gandhi Square, Marai-Malai Adigal Salai, the one at the premises of Perunthalaivar Kamarajar centenary educational complex, the fountain at the Muthialpet clock tower and Saram are not functioning at present.

In yet another case the fountains on the either side of the Rajiv Gandhi Square are fully covered with plants. Damage of the construction can be seen at the fountains of Perunthalaivar Kamarajar centenary educational complex due to complete negligence. Even though the workers do often visit these fountains to switch on the lights, the concerned officials aren’t taking care of these fountains and relate the issue with the fund constraint.

I peruse reports on newspapers that say about the measures that are taken by the Municipality to keep the town clean and green. It is always wise to promote and protect the available resources instead of scheming new plans.
