June 22nd, 2010Chamiers Road Signal

This is how our motorists(99% educated) cut through to avoid going towards CIT ngr and take a U turn to enter Venkatnarayana Road. They are not bothered about the danger/inconvenience to them and others. Police of course are not bothered. May be they feel, if something happens, so much less motorists…?!

One more Chamiers Road signal photo. A group of two wheelers waiting to cross into Venkatnarayana road. You can see a person on a two wheeler going the wrong way at the right end too!

This is the water logging in front of our house. It occurs after even a small rain. The drainage is on the opposite side which is marked with ‘x’ but the slope is given towards our side! Everytime the road is relaid in the same way even if pointed out the logic. Only once, few years back,  they tried to correct when a complaint was made in the Indian Express ‘Action Please’. After that it is back to square one.

The raise given to the right side of the drainage point only favours car(s) going in and out of the opposite compound rather than draining of rain water. Some workers from the corporation, ’employed privately’, tried to raise the left side and  cover the drainage opening also but stopped after objection was raised by us.

The purpose of this post is not to highlight the problem faced by us. We are used to it and I am even thinking of constructing a RWH structure inside our compound and divert that water to it.

This shows the way our Corporation works! This shows that plans are only on paper and money power is what executes the plan, sometimes literally. Money power and political power complement each other and those who have neither only watch from the side lines waiting for elections, not to try to elect good(!) candidates but get their ’30 silvers’ for closing their eyes for the next five years.

Moral of the story is don’t blame anyone else for your plight. Walk/ride/drive carefully!
