Default Now it is bangalore's turn

Those who tried to come towards Electronic city this morning would have had a real nightmare. Our vehicle some how managed to reach office.
Many areas of HSR layout is under water I believe. Here are some photos taken near Silk board junction (got these by mail).
Bad part is that more rains are predicted this evening.

Ask me! I was one of the lucky few to escape the jam this morning ! Reached office just 15 minutes late (8.15) The guys in the bus behind me were diverted to BTM, Bannergata road, Bannergata and some how reached Electronics City. Worst hit were ppl coming from BTM. Those buses could not be diverted and had to stay put till the jam cleared a bit.

One driver took the bus all the way to ITPL from BTM, from there some road to Hosur and then back to electronics city.

The company is empty today. Hardly 50% attendance i guess. I am now wondering how I'll get back home in the evening. It'll be better to stay back till 11 and then take the late night cab back home. Or even better sleep in the dormitory tonight.

I luckily read the paper and came via Marathahalli. A colleague took 2 hours from Koramangala to reach the outer ring road - 5km. Most of the guys from BTM / Bannerghatta road came 3 hours late or turned around and went home and logged in from there

This means that koramangla to Outer ring road stretch is also flooded!? Any idea about the Sarjapur road/Outer ring road junction. Any flooding there?

That part should be safe. Because main problem was near Silk board, Hosur road from silk board till e-city and many other roads joining Hosur road.

After the heavy rains on saturday, Bangalore has become horrible. I couldn't reach my college on time today and it took me 2 hours as the roads are flooded and had to take alternate roads which are long and very horrible.

rain or no rain silk board seems to be cursed....

i used to drive to work for 3 years on that road - preflyover and post the construction of the flyover.

Glad to be off that stretch now....

I fail to see the humour. Besides, this isn't meant to be a competition.

Since 4 days the water supply at my building complex is contaminated with sewage, most kids in our complex are vomiting and running fever. My son was vomiting and having dysentry whole of last night, I had to put him at my cousin's place whole of today. Just brought him home now.

We have water supply. But we don't dare use it for cooking or drinking or even taking bath. This is a situation where you can't trust the water from the taps at your home. It is just depressing.

My intention was not to hurt anyone and neither am I comparing. What I meant was that how worse would be the situation if we had rains similar to the ones mumbai had. Just can't imagine. Added to that, various govt departments in bangalore are not at all actively handling the situation. Did we hear anything from the CM in the last 2 days ?
