When Delhi ruined Delhi Belly!!

Few days back, i had gone to watch Delhi Belly with my brother. It had rained heavily that afternoon, almost for an hour. So cancelling our afternoon plans, we decided to go for the 4:50 evening show. The PVR where we had decided to go is a few kilometres from my place. Usually it takes around 15 minutes(sometimes even less) to reach there. We left around 4 so that we could reach in time and buy the tickets. The route that we usually take was closed. Why??? Because of rain(that too for just an hour) so much water had accumulated there that we could actually see a half drowned car. So, we had to take a different and longer route. Still, i was hopeful that we would make it just in time. However, as time passed our hopes kept fading. We found heavy traffic everywhere and by 4:50, we were still stuck in the middle of traffic, moving at snail's pace. The excitement was all over.

Well, missing a movie show was not of much importance. It was a trivial thing. However, for some people, the situation might not have been as trivial as missing a movie show. Someone could have missed a train, a flight, an opportunity or even life. It really compelled me to think. What kind of a city are we living in?? A city that comes to a halt after an hour's rain?? What kind of people are governing us?? They talk of all kinds of insensible advancements and this is what they have given us. The worst part is, we have chosen these people ourselves and hence we can blame nobody but ourselves. Hence, i appeal to all my Delhiite friends and people reading this, please exercise your voting right. We have to bring a change. We need to bring down this hopeless and ruthless governance. It won't happen by ignorance. As it is said, each drop makes an ocean. So make your vote count!!

P.S. That day we were too determined to watch Delhi Belly. So, we waited till 7 PM i.e. the next show time and watched it!! :)

  3. If that's how Delhi has been during the rains...talk about Kanpur without any rains...filth, dirt, squalor, narrow roads, randomly moving traffic and a horrible law and order situation!
