…the wanderings

flooding in Pune

It was another flooded evening for Pune. Flow of people heading homewards was restricted over a few clear bridges and nudged through various traffic-jams on the way.

The broad Mula crossover through Aundh over Rajiv Gandhi bridge was blocked as water flooded its city-side ramp. All traffic was diverted to the neighbouring secondary bridge (a short treatise on names of the two bridges i refer here by Salil).

As the Mula raged with higher water-levels, traffic logjammed over the narrow relatively-older bridge that was not blocked; moving much slower than the racing water under it.

As the evening drew to a close, Mula rushed on its way to the Samgam and determined people persisted in the traffic flow.
