Those a$$h__les have completely messed up things. I don't know the exact blockages (it was declared sometime back in papers), but all major routes to and from univ area are blocked! Just blocked!!! Rest which are open are mostly made one-way! And the reason this is so bad is that it has caused major PITA to the regular commuters. They have blocked so many roads that reamining of the each and every damned of roads, traffic is jam-packed, even at 1701hrs in the evening!!! When I left office at 1901 hrs I had to drive through maddening traffic for 2+ hrs to cover the distance of 15 kms from my office to home-sweet-home :-(
Don't these a$$h__les have slightest idea what they have done? Don't they have something called as statistics of number of vehicles that will be diverted and does the dirverted routes have the bandwidth to accomodate them? The flyover construction has been a real PITA to all the people traversing that path on a daily basis, for a duration which is close to 3 years now!!! The SOBs are claiming they want to finish it off before monsoon starts! Balls! That, in my personal view, utter nonsense. This ain't Bombay that they will raise the flyover in span of 4-5 months!
If the nonsense continues, I think only option I have is to request my manager to allow me to work from home for at least 2 days a week (don't ask me what will I do if he refues, haven't thought of that yet :-( )
3 hrs of daily to and fro driving in Pune's !@$ked up maniacal crazy traffic is next to impossible. Pune is growing from worse to impossibly !@#$ing WORSE day by day! And I owe a nice little post on that too... been cooking up in my cranium since long! I guess it's due now.
