Default Monsoon has transformed a part of coutry's roadways into waterways -

What you are seeing below is a road (that has paddy field on either of its sides ) submersed in water .





I feel Aquada should start marketing its products in Inida. It actually makes good sense (for the rich ones) in the low lying areas of our country .
