Along The Railway Line
This is what annoys me the most in my city (but I couldn't upload it for the Feb 1st theme). I took this photo from the train near Chembur station on harbour line of Central Railway. All along the railway line, you will find drains and canals filled mostly with polythene carry bags and also empty wafer packs, chocolate wrappers and all possible rubbish. This muck is what did not allow the rain water to drain into the sea on 26th July, 2005 and claimed over 400 lives. Doesn't really look that dangerous, does it? And blame the municipal authorities if you like, but I've seen municipal workers go knee deep in the muck and clean it up, only to find it worse in less than 2 months.
