This monsoon Noida has seen unprecedented rains as was witnessed in other parts of India. Noida rains flooded roads. The unpreparedness on part of the city administration is appalling. Rains bring a mixed bag of emotions to the Noida dwellers.
After a dry spell of three weeks Noida received a heavy downpour yesterday. It brought the temperatures two notches below the normal for the city says the Met Department. The season’s average is 27 degrees Celsius. Rains brought a sigh of relief to the residents of Noida from hot and humid days.
Noida was lashed with rains in the evening. Rains at rush-hour were nightmarish for daily commuters who were returning from their offices. My neighbor for whom it takes otherwise just twenty minutes to reach home from office was stuck for more than an hour in a long traffic jam. Water-logged roads added woes to everybody’s dismay.
