Transport woes persist

a gigantic exercise

manoeuvring the

serpentine vehicles lined

traffic nightmare on the roads!

    So true, Radhika and I would say this is India where our population is escalating out of proportion.

    Oh, so true, it is a real exercise of patience especially in your image, I doubt I could cope with that.
    Thanks, have a nice week.

    And I face this nightmare every morning while driving to work. Even the city beautiful Chandigarh with its spacious roads and strict traffic rules is now facing the traffic woes.

      That’s really sad. I thought Chandigarh was a well planned city. Had been there many years ago.
