A day after the Guru jam in Gurugram, the deluge in Bengaluru and a pothole death in Delhi the situation remains as grim. Fresh rains have only increased the problem and the run-off from swollen lakes shows no sign of abating.

If you venture out, and we suggest you don’t, you’ll sink into the same odour of apathy that saw your life disrupted yesterday. You deserve better not only because you matter, but because you pay your taxes through your nose to live in a well ordered city.
