The rains have come and once again, our civic administration has been brought to it’s knees. It is no fun to see the images on TV with knee / waist high water in most parts of Bombay. The express highway is closed as well, and the entire situation everywhere seems like a rewind to July ’05. All the excuses given by the administrators also seem a re-hash of the last year.
The situation in Pune is no better, and riding / driving is fraught with danger every inch of the way. One can never gauge the depth of any water filled area, and a wrong judgement could lead to horrible consequences. All orthopaedics will again have to gear up to treat the numerous cases of injuries along with severe back and neck pain.
