    A Nightmare in Public Transport

    Had to attend my Grandma’s birthday party last evening and since my bike was giving problems I decided to use public transport to get back home from work. Left my workplace a little after 3.30pm and hitched a ride with a colleague heading towards Thane. His plans changed and I had to get off at Rabale and find a bus or auto heading towards Airoli. For those who aren’t aware, the transport in Navi Mumbai SUCKS! After a good deal of waiting I a 513 arrived and I jumped in as it heads towards Mulund.

    Manholes – Day 03

    Following up on my post, we enter the third day. The condition of Manhole 01 hasn’t changed much since yesterday, but neither has it been repaired. And I found another manhole nearby in a much worse state! I won’t be able to get feedback for Day 03 to Day 07, because of a two day training programme I have to attend, plus the weekend. Hopefully, the manholes would be repaired by Monday.

    Yeh Des Hai Mera

    I’m a little charged up by my Manholes post.

And then again there are a lot of things that make me really proud to live in this city. I always look at both sides of the coin. At times it gets just too frustrating to do anything about it. At other times things are so amusing or downright stupid that all I can do is talk about it. So, why not talk about this…

    Manholes – Day 01

    The place where I catch my bus every morning near J.B. Nagar has two manholes. A few months back one of the manholes broke a bit and within the next two days it had crumbled completely. Instead of it being repaired I found stones around the manhole. It did get repaired finally. I missed photographs then, but this time the story repeats. Found both manholes have developed small holes and this time took the needed pictures. Here is the first (the one which broke last time): Click the thumb to view the full pic. And this is the second: If you look closely at the picture, there is one glaring…
