It's the end of the world … and I feel fine …

If you had watched the movie Independence Day carefully, you’d notice that there is a song playing very often in the background which goes
“It’s the end of the world … as we know it … know it … and I feel fine …”

Its sung by R.E.M

Anyways, seriously … is it really the end of the world .. or am I just being paranoid ?
These have been the worst monsoons ever … and I have been through the thick and thin of it …
And the worst part is that it has not yet stopped and does not the least bit look like it …

It’s already almost mid September and the rains seem relentless …
Mumbai has been flooded for … I don’t know how many times over …

The infrastructure is pathetic as it is … but the rains have just worsened it to new heights …

There is an actual stretch of road here in Pune, which starts from Residency Club to the Don Bosco Bridge ( for those of you in Pune and know the place ) that is so, so, so, so, so bad … that I swear to God, you would probably be better off taking a 5 km extra long path, just so you could avoid the 500 mts or so of that road …

I mean, people actually come on bikes till the entrance of the road, look at it and turn back and go another way …

I had the pleasure of getting stuck on it in my car …
The only other time, I was so scared was when I was in a pretty big roller coaster sometime ago.

I dont have my camera with me right now, otherwise I would take pictures and post it.

Anyways, the weather has really turned lop sided this year … and it has happened so suddenly ..
Last year, most of the things were normal .. but now, rain has become such a part of our lives that you wonder why it isn’t raining at the moment …

If I could bring your attention to a very recent movie … “The Day After Tommorrow” which was completely about the shift in weather patterns and everything freezing over, it does not look so sci – fi now … does it ?
