    These days thunders also gone abnormal like some dynamites or bombs are detonated. Don't you get scared ! During childhood days we kids seeing the lightening used run and sit under the tables. Actually lightening is dangerous. Thunders only noise. (light travels faster than sound)

    The greatest mistake done by our Government is that given the smart city contracts to local person. That is the big blunder done. We need educated and literate representatives ad well as city Corporation. Both have failed to give good administration. We can just judge that our MCC has totally failed to shieft the service bus stand. What we can expect now.
