Relatively Green

I’ve often heard people lamenting about how Chennai isn’t as green as it used to be. It’s true that Chennai used to have really pleasant weather in the winter, while December these days is as hot as May was in the past. It is also true that old, large trees have made way for new, ugly apartment complexes.

Why don’t the celestial beings do something to set things right? Those blessed beings looking at Chennai from the heavens see this:

Now, pictured above is T.Nagar – an area notorious for it’s congestion, traffic and pollution. Quite green, no?

For comparison, here’s an aerial view of Austin, Texas:

Now there’s a concrete jungle for you.

Based only on these aerial views, which city do you think looks more pleasant? If this is what Indra sees, it’s obvious why he makes it rain more in Austin.
