Dug-up road, problems galore
Residents suffer as MC fails to wake up

Jalandhar, July 3
More than three months have passed since officials of the municipal corporation dug up a large stretch of road in Mota Singh Nagar here for construction of a drain, but the road has not been relaid, much to the inconvenience of the residents and shopkeepers. Owing to the lackadaisical attitude of the MC officials, who appeared to have turned a blind eye to the problem, area residents and shopkeepers see no end to their miseries.

Killer stretch: Here cattle are the biggest threat
Jalandhar, July 3
It’s surely a killer stretch. According to estimates, the half-a-km road between Transport Nagar and Bhagat Singh Colony Chowk on Delhi-Amritsar national highway 1, claims nearly 5 lives every month. And in most of the cases, it’s the stray cattle which cause fatal collisions.

Overtake heavy vehicles carefully
When placed behind a large vehicle/lorry, drop back so that you can see and plan ahead. Large vehicles blocking your view can be potentially dangerous. If you plan to overtake a large vehicle, make sure you have sufficient space to complete the manoeuvre considering its length. Don’t take risk. When in doubt, chicken out!!

Aye Ganpat, chal chai leke aa

They are present everywhere, so terming them as an indispensable part of any workplace would not be wrong. They are our very own “chaiwalas”. Not only the “chaiwala” is the most sought-after person at any workplace but also the very thought of his absence, even for a day, disturbs those who are hooked to tea to the extent that they think their performance depends on it.
