Heart of chennai

Aren’t the roads we call the heart of a city?
water logging at velachery
As usual, today morning I went to drop my son at school, and it was still raining, some roads in AnnaNagar were fully crowded, those are ones which are actually near the school.
The places I had been was the belly area in AnnaNagar – Chinmaya Vidyalaya and the CSI Bain school for girls.
The reason was that some portion of the road was unfit to use as rain water was stagnating and people wouldn’t park their cars or neigther couldn’t people use that portion of the road, instead they had use the middle portion of the road. Some would actually park the car right in front of the school gate.

And worst part was freak accidents during rain time.
Some schools were declared holiday, at velachery and some at Perambur.

Do you think, school should be little worried about school timing during rainy days or should school be non working.
Or should we actually worry about our roads.

    i started to read the first line of your post as “as usual it was still raining…” eeeeeeeeeks! for a moment, i wondered whatever happend to the city…then i re-read it rightly ;-)

    i think we should stop worrying about the roads, and schools when it rains…coz both of them don’t go well together ;-)

    I think the corporation should worry about the roads when it isn’t raining, and not spend the time between each monsoon talking about it.

    As a brit, i’m just shocked and astonished when I hear — it’s raining, I’m not coming to work today!

    what?

    Sure, in extreme monsoon conditions, they poor guy may be mopping his house out. But a couple of days of showers?
