Johri Farm: Road to hardship

It was on Monday that I got an opportunity to travel to Johri Farm, reports Noushi Ali.

20160614_011420It was a difficult ride with unauthorized breakers everywhere, bikes parked on road and open manholes. In one lane that I was crossing I noticed two manholes opened in a short span of less than 50 metres and other manholes covered haphazardly.

Anyhow after crossing the two manholes with great difficulties, my driver got stuck in the last one as a cover was put on another manhole in an uneven way.

The driver had hard time crisscrossing the narrow lanes with open manholes. After crossing three manholes, then came piled-up construction waste in the middle of the road blocking the entrance.

Though I was able to take photos of the manholes, I couldn’t take photo of the construction waste as many people were sitting around and just staring at the hard work that the driver was doing to pull out the vehicle from the lane. Just I thought, what would have happened had there been no electricity in the locality. In such a situation, chances of accident are really high. It was certainly road to hardship that many would pray to travel on.
