    This is sad. Hope the rescue effort can minimize the death toll, and India's construction industry learns a valuable lesson.

    Is India's construction industry responsible for this?

    I just heard on TV news that occupants of Babu Genu Market building were told to vacate last April.

    True that hand-mixing concrete for building is unsafe.

    Also, building construction in India should master safe techniques before jumping on the "green" bandwagon, I believe.
