Touch up

With the upcoming state elections in place, there's a visible sense of change in Navi Mumbai. Not exactly a shocker given politicos' tendency to buckle up and do something visible few months before the vote is cast. After all, such desperate moves are known to help win the ruling party some brownie points with the aam janta. For instance, last month, bad roads were layered up with tar in some sectors. And this month, we notice the civic employees repainting traffic lines down the center of a road that doesn't really see much of vehicles in the first place. One heck of an attempt at leaving an impression with the voting public!
