Wading in the city!

It rained cats and dogs today. I had to almost swim back home. The traffic was a bummer, drains overflowing, it was a sight to see. Makes one wonder about the drainage system of the city... God save Delhi's pride if the rain gods decide to flash their teeth during the Commonwealth Games! :P Perhaps if they paid attention to the more essential repairs rather than turn to rubble the footpaths and then batter them up again and again in a vicious cycle... perhaps then the citizens would not have to contemplate buying a boat as standby option in a city where even the sole river does not have water enough for a man to drown!

@ Unknown!!!!: Actually the floods are happening coz of the construction muck that has not been removed and has clogged up the drains and also coz the rainfall is comparitively much more this year! Good weather though! I won't complain!

@ Mohammed Ibrahim: Thanks a lot! glad you liked the post.. All the best for the contest!
