There is a major construction going on near our place closer to the interstate highways. They are building flyovers and more roads leading upto it and looks like a very big project for our little town. Every day when we pass by my husband and I are in awe at the way the work is progressing. There is almost no interruption to regular traffic. They apparently have a Master plan and process in place to work things out. Initially what seemed like total confusion and chaos is now taking the shape of the different roads some going up and some goin down. Then ofcourse we have the inevitable conversation of our "singara chennai" road constructions. When we were growing up they used to dig here and there in random. The Roads I mean. Never mind even if it was a newly laid road they never hesitated nor did anything stop them from DIGGING. and then they would mostly cover and patch up but there are days when that did not happen either. Please dont get me wrong. we do adore our singara chennai but when construction especially road related comes up cannot but comment on those days.Also we have an eager audience in our son who listens to all this in amazement.Everything goes well till the topic of constructors comes up. And then the fact that they use sub standard products. This leads to a heated argument between the hitherto friendly person (read DH) and I. All because of BRIBE. My dh stronglyfeels that its o.k to bribe or accept bribe so as to get the project done on time and hopefully we get a good quality job. I ofcourse cannot believe he said that. I think its much worser to give the bribe than accept it. Because by giving we are creating one acceptee. He looks at me like where have u been livin woman?????? But keeps quiet. I guess years of marraige does that to men? Anyways we are at lockheads now and need our friends here to help sort out this debate and hopefully give a verdict (supporting me ofcourse or no morru bajji and coffee and thayir sadam). Looks like I'm going to be the winner Dont you agree?
