Its is going to be a long day for Jayashree. G, a resident of Wingate Garden Apartments on Garden School Road, Mandaveli. The last spell of rain flooded their complex so badly that a motor had to be used to drain the water. For more than three days, she had to wade through a mix of sewage and rain water to get to the main road. This time too things are not different.
She says, ” The road outside our complex was relaid and has increased in height. Our apartment complex is at a lower height and so the water flows into this place. Luckily the water didn’t enter our vehicles last time. I don’t think we will be so lucky this time. We already had ankle deep water from yesterday’s rain. Now it is really bad. I don’t think I will even risk going out today”.
