Amid political break ups, monsoons and potholes refuse to break their decades old alliance in Mumbai

Mumbai. After ‘Modi wave’ in country, there seems to be a ‘break up wave’ in Maharashtra, with both ruling and opposition parties breaking up with their alliances.

However amidst this strong wave, Monsoons and potholes in the capital city of Maharashtra, Mumbai, have refused to break up their alliance.

Claiming that their bond is much stronger for any wave to have any impact on it, they confidently asked residents of the city to maintain calm and keep wearing safety gears while on road and assured them they are not going anywhere.

They are not going anywhere.
They are not going anywhere.

“Our alliance is very old, and was established by Lord Indrasaheb himself. It is not going to break that easily,” said the rains falling over Mankhurd Bridge, trying to create few more potholes there.

They further claimed all political parties of the state, which have their presence in the city, were their alliance partners by default, and thus nobody will touch them even after elections.

“History is a proof that it doesn’t matter which political party comes to power, we remain together,” pointed a pothole as it embraced rain to become even deeper.

“In fact our alliance is only going from strength to strength. Now monsoons don’t really have to be strong enough. Just a hint of rains is enough for us to surface,” the pothole added.

Potholes and rains feel that political leaders and parties in the city have become quite attached to them over years and hence don’t want to let them go.

“They have become habitual and dependent on us. Because their political alliances may come and go but we remain with them forever,” said a pothole outside Mantralaya, ”We don’t distinguish between them on the basis of whether they are in power or opposition.  We mistreat them all equally.”

Taking a cue from this announcement by monsoons and potholes, even bureaucrats in the state have refused to break up their ages old alliance with corruption and inefficiency.

Meanwhile frustrated with not having any alliance partner to break up with, a few agitated MNS workers were caught breaking bones of Bihari autowallahs in Juhu.

“We had to break something,” MNS chief Raj Thackeray said, justifying action of his workers.
