Rains


Our world spins with purpose and precision, however sometimes it takes the rain Gods to turn things topsy-turvy.

It is raining since last night. Potholes have reappeared (in Pune they are never lacking), vehicles are moving at a snail's pace, and there are unscheduled power cuts.

Low-lying areas of the city have been flooded with water released from dams near Pune.

It takes me 25-30 minutes to reach home and it took 65 minutes this evening. There was a major traffic jam, mid-way through, from Wadia College to Yerwada.

A power cut to disturb sleep early in the morning and then low voltage at home late in the evening.

Mumbai, the city that never sleeps, has come to a standstill with local train services suspended, power cuts in suburban areas, flooded roads, traffic jams, and disrupted mobile and landline services. Read more on Satish's Bombay blog.
