Among other irritants such as the political and bureaucratic corruption, poisonous pollution, and deplorable dirtiness in Delhi, the condition of roads goes from bad to worse in every rainy season.

India is a country of strange stories. Here a cow can give birth to a cat. A tree can talk. A dead man can walk. And a holy man can fly in the air. As all these are telltale stories that people relish, you don’t need to provide any evidence to establish their truth.

However, some stories are real. You will be surprised to know that the roads in India dissolve in rains and melt in the summer heat. When they become lethal pits on which it’s difficult to walk, the local politicians make people believe that these are the roads that they can use to commute.

Take for instance the roads in New Delhi, which is India’s capital. Among other irritants such as the political and bureaucratic corruption, poisonous pollution, and deplorable dirtiness in Delhi, the condition of roads goes from bad to worse in every rainy season.

And to rub salt into the wound, the Delhi government claims shamelessly that all is hunky-dory in the city. To show you the bad state of roads in Delhi, I have taken a few pictures during the past couple of days from different areas of the city.

You can take a look and decide for yourself if such a government is your friend or foe.

The condition of roads in Delhi shows that India is still an underdeveloped country.
