The High Court orders disallowing multi-storey apartments in the northern sectors come as a relief. High-rise buildings will be an eyesore and will ruin the city’s basic character. In fact, there are far too many flats in the southern sectors already with no space for children’s park. The green cover is also negligible as compared to the northern sectors.

There are not many cities in the North which are livable, Chandigarh is an exception. Let the authorities not tamper with the beautiful maiden lest it turns into an old hag rather prematurely.
