Rains rains, please go

Last few weeks, it is been raining like anything. Probably not seen in a decade or so.
Probably I am not too much affected as my house is not in low lying area so it will not get drenched and the route I take to work place is not much affected. But then people are getting affected a lot. My colleagues spent 4 to 5 hours to reach home which usually take not more than 1 hour (not every day but there are instances).

So I say "Rains rains, please go", though you are like blessing, to grow our food and all, still at least please cut short your trip to our city, as we are full of falsified dignity about regional issues and we do not take for anything that is proper and correct.

Our guys lay roads that are of sub standard. Our engineers do not care, if there is a drain way to rain water or should we design roads with that in consideration. Our political leaders are actually contractors who are running the show because they need to win contracts. They do the same job repeatedly (laying the road time and again). We do not care if we should really stop using the traditional approach of BT roads and go with something that can sustain and withstand few days of rain and heavy vehicular moments.

Some are busy pulling the people in power, some are busy designing plans to break and make, some are busy trying hard to pretend everything is fine.

The state that was kind of the top in progress a decade ago but now not the same now. It is just another state,left behind with the growth of the past.

Am I exceptional, No. I must agree that I am part of the crowd and though I try some times with RTI and other stuff to figure out what could be wrong, I think I need to do lot more to really bring out change. Funny part is that while we have so many issues to solve, our bureaucrats are pampered so much by the politico contractor leaders have almost forgot doing serious job. To one of my RTI request they have added values in KM and meters together to give me a final KM of roads. Even a KG student can fix that bug easily.

So I say again, "Rains rains, please go", we can not manage our roads in your presence.
