HISTORICAL LAKE NEAR SHIVAJI MAHARAJ FORT IN SION – ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF AUTHORITATIVE APATHY FOR INDIA’S RICH HISTORY

sion-lake-4A Fort of Shivaji Maharaj in Sion is considered to be one among the famous forts of Shivaji Maharaj. However, unfortunately, the condition of the historical lake near the fort is deplorable. Once upon a time Shivaji Maharaj used to feed his horse with this water. But today people can only feel pity for the lake. Below its urban look, not many know that a rich history sleeps in Mumbai. One such place is the historical Sion Fort. But a visit breaks the heart for the historical lake at the fort, where once upon a time Shivaji Maharaj use to feed his horse lies in the most neglected conditions. Dirty water lined with plastic bags and foul smell makes one cringe at the site of the lake. Locals use the lake for conducting religious rituals. But due to the BMC’s negligence the lake is not cleaned killing its beauty. The water has become so polluted that people are scared to approach it, it is also resulting in various skin disorders. Whatever reasons the BMC may give, it is rather unfortunate that due to the continuous negligence and apathy of BMC historical sites of Mumbai city are dying a slow death.
