Chennai is at the tail-end of this year’s Northeast monsoon. The unpredictable weather is making roads less accessible. Poor civic attitudes contribute to blocks on the road.
What this means to students going to school is highlighted in this set of pictures. The bus belongs to Fatima Convent, United India Colony, Kodambakkam. The road is Pasumarthy Street, Division 120, leading to the school which is just 500 metres away. When you are this close to school, and yet are caught up in traffic, the result is bound to be great anxiety.
At the corner of the road, at left, notice the pavement eaten up by a temple. This ‘shrine’ is growing each year, installing more deities and conducting grand ‘Aadi’ celebrations.
