The biggest problem we face nowadays is when we travel by road, especially by public transport. I am giving you an insight of the daily commuters struggle on a rainy day. I was traveling by bus on a Monday morning. As I was ready to leave for the bus station the skies were turning grey I could see the clouds getting heavier. I had to catch the bus before it rained. I reached the station and boarded the bus on time. As I took my usual seat near the window, I could see the others rushing to enter the bus before they could get wet. I usually take 2 hours to reach my destination. The traffic on Mondays was always bad, we had to cross a few traffic signals. On this day we almost reached our final signal before our usual time. Most of us were happy we would be reaching our work before time. But after that, it started to rain and the traffic came to a standstill. We were 15 minutes away from our offices, but nothing could be done as the roads and traffic were bad. We took more than 50 minutes to reach our destination. Rains do have their own disadvantages. The roads become slushy and nothing can be done as it’s just impossible to walk on. We must find a solution to make way for better sewage systems And construct safer roads for the smooth flow of traffic. We can’t predict the weather every monsoon is different. If it rains cats and dogs this year, the next year the rains would be scanty
Each one of you I am sure has different views about rain. It would be nice if you could post pictures on rain or narrate an incident that brings back the nostalgic feel of the season. If you don’t feel at ease you can brief me about it. I would write about them in my next blog.
