thanks to Corporate Social Responsibility
by MANI KUNJITHAPADAM IYER on Feb 22, 2014 06:52 AM

But for making it mandatory for Corporates to give back to the society from where they have made their profit, Pallavi Gaikwad also would have ended like billions of other Indian women folk, for sure.

Very nice. Congrats to her. However beg to differ with writer regarding the life in ambernath. Except the condition of roads, the living conditions are much better and it is improving day by day.

At Ambernath, streets do not exist - they do exist but are repaired only once in a year
ater supply is unreliable at best - I have a 24 hours water supply and I havent seen anyon compalining about water
An occasional expensive SUV - every house in amberntah will have a 2 wheeler and a 4 wheeler in every 3rd house
Men loiter around aimlessly and women go about their daily chores, heads hung low, trying to ignore prying eyes - Ambernath is full of working middle class, and my sisters are more safe here than in mumbai from the prying eyes

My family hails from Ambernath and the place was well developed much earlier to places like Andheri, thanks to the location of industries (Ion Exchange, WIMCO, Ordnance Factories). Yes, it is very far from South Mumbai, but I do not remember any water problem. As for the roads, they are no more or no less dilapidated than in many other places in the City. The author does not have to ruin the image of the place to embellish the story.

Description of Ambarnath
by Ashok Pandya on Oct 02, 2013 09:28 AM

Firstly Well done Pallavi!
I have been living in ambarnath for last 35 years.The autor's desiption is incorrect.While,like all other suburbs civic infrasstruture is crumbling(primarily due to worst governance & the cult of local politician,contractors,official nexus,the place is not as bad s described.Of course,what was once a green paradise is like all places concrete jungle,municipality is year after year improving in providing bad to worse to worst services & roads.But people can not do anything.People get government it deserves.

False report on Ambernath
by suhail sayeed on Oct 01, 2013 10:48 PM  | Hide replies

Rediff please throw out the reporter who has done no research on Amberanth.
At least he should have gone through Wikipedia.

1) It is a place with best schools.
2) It has good medical facility.
3) people of all religions live in Harmony.
4) I dont know of a single person educated in Ambernath who has not excelled in life .Let it be in the Middle east, US or UK.
5) It is true that it is far away from all negative glitzy world of Mumbai and children are conservatively bought up which is a very good thing.
6) The Amberanth Municipal corporation is not worthy at all.But it has not effected the quality of population living there.
How can you say it has no streets, below is an extract from Wikipedia.
Ambarnath (East) has planned one of the largest bungalows area in entire Asia (Suryodaya Housing Society) which contains more than 655 plots and covers around 4 km� of area.[citation needed] The housing society has 4 sections namely Kansai, Saai, Kher, named after former chief minister of Mumbai state Mr. B. G. Kher, who used to stay near to (know for Herambh mandir) and Vadavali.

Amberanth west is the place where majority all these good exists.
It has all religious places.People respect each other.

Absolutely true! My family settled there in the 1950s and although no one is there now, we have very happy memories of the place.
