    Default Flooded road, heavy traffic

    In many parts of my city, the roads are poorly drained. During the monsoon, water collects and hampers traffic. In this photo, vehicles are at least moving; but often the water is too deep to permit that.

    Very nice look at life in Delhi.

    It has been an unusual year for weather--heat waves--floods--storms.

    Has any of it affected India?

    Now that is a traffic jam!!!

    Although I heard that China had a traffic jam for 9 days straight!!
    Constructive criticism is always welcomed. I am here to learn. Just don't piss me off.

    Halfwright, there has been flooding in many parts of the country, but nothing that might be called out of the ordinary. India's neighbour, Pakistan, has had a damaging flood.

    Toni, the papers have been full of pictures of partly submerged vehicles. Many traffic jams have been caused by them.

    You really caught the busy situation in your photo. Reminds me of one afternoon in Saigon. It was chaos there too, after a heavy rainfall.

    Come to think about it - we have had it here in Norway too

    Another good look into a way of life that is so different from my own, Mukul. Good job, and as always, very interesting. Having grown up and lived most of my life in a very sparsely populated area of a very different culture, I'm always so amazed by the ability of people to function and thrive under such crowded conditions. I would be a nervous wreck, and in constant sensory overload!

    tomsi42, I spent two days in Mandal in 1976. Wasted two days, that is: couldn't go anywhere or do anything because of the rain. However, I do not think that vehicular traffic was affected much.

    Nate, I came to Delhi forty years ago. It was not sparsely populated then, but there were few motor vehicles and the roads were easy. Now the number of vehicles has jumped enormously and I cannot adjust to it.

    Probably not. It is usually snow that causes chaos in that area

    We had a storm combined with a spring tide some years ago - that created a situation similar to what you show here.

    Oops. Sorry. It was not rain but snow.
