That water finds its own level.
That water flows downhill.
Mostly. But if the path downhill is blocked, water floods.
And so it did.
Caged a lift marking a furrow in the said flood waters (memories of Cal), made it to work to learn I was the only person in my group, turned right around and went home.
The BMC commissioner more or less says “live with it”.
Was that in English?

Outrageous. The Commissioner, not the water. The water sounds like me.

Manu- bah. Jhapat-worthy, that comment young man. :)

portia- he actually said, "See Netherlands? It floods there, they live with it, so Mumbai should too, as well." The consulate sent him a website link with the engineering changes they've put in, and a list of companies.

sathya- luckily now we are on the first floor. :) but one still has to use the roads. will forward some photos someone sent me.
