Cars “swim” through a waterlogged MC Road near Tiruvalla in Kerala. The state of the “lifeline” road of central south Kerala is deplorable and this is not the only location where the road is in this condition, rather it is one of many. Deep gorges hide beneath the water, holding up traffic and causing long traffic jams and misery. Only a small rain is enough for the road to turn into a waterway. Maybe they are trying to promote water tourism advertising the road as a backwater where you can enjoy driving through them instead of hiring expensive houseboats.
