Let’s cut the tree and leave the hole alone

… seems to be the philosophy of the caretakers of our city. Roads are as lousy as ever, but they cut trees to make more space on the road. I can imagine the conversation (translated into English as my vernacular is poor other than my mal):

“Sir! traffic jam sir!”

“Why”

“Lot of traffic sir”

“Ah what to do?”

“Pothole there sir”

“They can drive around pothole no?”

“But some tree there sir”

“Ah! Cut the tree”

“Sir, shady sir”

“Ah what to do, I’m shady enough no?”
