An interesting article on planning and development in India, and the need to get water supplies in place before they can get to the meat of the projects:------------------------------------------Desal: Getting the water before the mealThe Deccan Plateau has always been the preferred location for town planning by many monarchs in Indian history. The slave Balban, Jalalluddin Akbar, Iltutmish the turk, Asoka Maurya, Hyder Ali, the Peshwas; you name it, they have dabbled on this land in the name of empire building.On the other hand, the extreme north centred in New Delhi was always the seat of heightened trade and commerce between the Middle East, the south Chinese kingdoms, Southern India and Eastern kingdoms including Indo-China and Bengal.Things have not changed much as the NCR region, the Deccan Plateau and the Gujarat Coast still offer chances for renewed urban planning.However, in India, cities have always been built for political considerations or they have been built over an already hyper-active marketplace such as New Delhi. Secondly, not one city in India has been planned according to business and society's needs with the infrastructure completely in place even before the population sets foot. It is something like getting the water (read desalination plants) before you even cook the meal.Continued at http://blogs.economictimes.indiatimes.com/managementmusings/...
