Gardens occupied by alcoholics


When Kharghar is known for alcohol free node, its residents face a crucial problem of alcoholism. Due to various struggles and actions of residents in Kharghar, it is maintained as an alcohol free zone. But alcoholics use to visit in the gardens and playgrounds and disturb its normal functioning.

Gardens and playgrounds are a specialty of Cidco developed area and provides good open spaces for refreshments and relaxation. In mornings and evenings, residents of the area use to spend times in gardens with their family members and friends.

But existence of Gardens in Kharghar are threatened and sometimes closed, due to disturbance of alcoholics in the area. A garden made by a private builder in an open space allotted by CIDCO in sec 19, is now lying closed and ruined. The residents near to the area remember it was because of disturbance from some alcoholics. The garden is closed for many years due to such problems.

When investigated, it was not an isolated problem. Many garden and open spaces in Kharghar is disturbed by alcoholics, specifically, in evenings. Though the incidents are not reported always, residents disturbed by anti socials are usual here. They even throw waste materials and bottles inside the gardens.

Rahul, a resident of Kharghar sec 19, said “the garden is small but beautiful; people use to come and relax in evenings. Once the disturbance of alcoholics came, residents decided to avoid them. But the disturbance increased and eventually closed forever. Playground of Sec 13 is also facing the same problem, as some alcoholics use to sit and comment on peoples coming there.”

Gardens in Kamote and New Panvel, is also a safe haven for people using alcoholics. Though, no disturbances are reported in the areas, residents want to remove alcoholics from the gardens and playgrounds.

Blessy, a resident of Kamote, said “problems created by alcoholics are to be controlled, or it will develop as a major social problem. Daily wage workers came for the construction of buildings are creating the problem. Peoples should be allowed to sit in gardens in night. There should a time limit to be strictly followed.”

Mohan Ninave, PRO of Cidco, informed to take actions to protect gardens in the Kharghar and other places under Cidco.
