|Height of Stupidity|
Only a couple of months back the workers came and completely re-tarred a nearby road here in Bangalore. Now some other people came and dig one side of it to replace a network of old underground pipes. Couldn’t these two groups talk to each other and do it in such a way that they replace the pipes first and then tar the road?
This is not the first-time absence of communication between two government departments waste public money and create more difficulties for public. Most often right after tarring a road someone will come to tear it apart (Water authority, Sewage treatment boards etc are some of the culprits). This not only waste public money but make half of the road not usable atleast for next 6 months.
When the ancient monument of Palmyra was destroyed by IS and when the monuments of Bahamian was destroyed by Taliban; world was stunned and wept. Everyone wondered how someone can do such barbaric acts. Newly tarred roads are neither Palmyra nor statues of Bahmiyan; but for those who walk and drive through those roads it is very much important. Destroying it is nothing less than destroying the beauty exists in the world.
Hope that whoever reading this will at least think twice before giving order to dig newly tarred roads.
