Morning Rain !

ಎನ್ ಮಳೆ ಗುರು!What a Rain Boss!

Friday early morning rocks with rain in the city, A Huge downpour is not just from today morning but also from few days, However all these days rain used to visit in the afternoon or evenings but for a change today it was early morning.

I was wishing for the early morning heavy rains from a long time and my wish has fulfilled!

Took an early morning drive @ 6 AM to feel the rain, It was quite risky on the roads to drive today and also some roads were impossible to drive where a huge water on the roads, Almost all the vehicles were with headlights and roads remembered the evenings.

For the first time i saw a quite numbers of cabs on the roads were with flat tyre, Lot of traders or vendors who were selling the festival items were cursing the rains, News papers and milk deliver was delayed, Early morning office goers were in bad mood, I guess later rain understood the situation and reduced the force.

But the thing which made me relax is Traffic Police were on the road by 6:30 AM and controlling the traffic in the heavy rains with just a thin raincoat on them.

I appreciate the efforts and the dedication of these guys.

    True, the bangalore traffic cops have to be appreciated a lot. Rain or shine they are on the roads manning the traffic. Also, have you noticed how now there is at least one senior officer at all junctions helping junior cops man traffic. A couple of years ago you wouldn’t have seen it. Great work by these guys. It’s worth a post in itself, someone should think about writing about them.

    I think I see an idea developing from that suggestion by Roshan….

    What great work? On Friday, it took me three hours to reach airport road from Electronic city. Where was all the traffic managers? It’s a shame on Bangalore that the administration, including the traffic police, have failed to find at least a temporary solution to the traffic problems in the city. For the last 10 years I am reading that lakes have been encroached. Why was there no PILs on this? Why did that no Karnataka CM spent a day near the lakes to create awareness about the wetland conservation? Just ban all heavy vehicles from 5 pm to 9pm from and to Hosur road. You will see the difference. Fine those who violate the strictures.
