Some days it is a fine spray , other days it is a brisk, thick downpour and sometimes even a hailstorm – evenings in Bangalore have been an event to look forward to and enjoyed. Only, if only, you stay indoors. If you are on the roads during and after the rains it is just impossible – the traffic snarls, the water logging and there is hardly any place to take shelter. The trees have become extremely unsafe to stand under and in any case half the roadblocks are caused by the trees uprooted by the rains.
During the past few days, close to 30 trees have fallen in several parts of the city. The Hindu today carries an article on the root cause of trees falling. You can read it here.

    One downpour and its consequent problems of treefall, water-logging, drainage overflowing, roads deteriorating et al appear to have the authorities flailing about helplessly..on the verge of drowning. Deja vu, like year after year, it appears.
    One can only hope that HDK finds a long term solution to all this, if at all!
