I wish I could Fly. I wish we all could.
Well, if you are wondering what this woeful statement is about, it all started after hearing the news that the Chennai Corporation has sanctioned the construction of Six, yep SIX new flyovers, a few bypass roads and apparently even a few underground roads are in order – all for a cost in the tune of Rs. 150 crores.
It’s not the cost that astounds or scares me, but its the numbers and the term “flyovers”.
I have unconsciously developed this impression that the entry into chennai is denoted by the ever-going construction of the Kaththipara Junction – which I hope my generation lives to see functioning in full style, and the newer work that has begun in T-nagar and the nearby areas, making driving in Chennai a literal nightmare.
Now, to top all of this, six more. I am almost tempted to spread open a Chennai map and see which area is going to be the next that they are going to sabotage and take over, but I guess these are matters we go through under the name of Infrastructure development right?
I really wish I could fly over the “to-be” flyovers.
