This is the roundabout at the road cross-section behind my home. It does not look so green because there was some construction work being done in the middle. My city, Chandigarh, has a lot of roundabouts. This one is ‘Junction 46’. There was a time when these roundabouts were a picnic spot on Sundays for some people. And on Diwali, people used to lie down and watch the fireworks going around. Not anymore. I don’t know if there is government ruling or what, but people no longer visit these beautifully constructed roundabouts. Of course, the number of vehicles has doubled over the last 10 years. But I remember people enjoying on these roundabouts. Also now these roundabouts are often the spot where people free the rats that are caught in their house. That’s what I have heard.
