Indians cannot build drain

Monsoon has finally arrived. Temperature has come down. Tempers are up. Long traffic pile up. Angry and impatient drivers. Roads overflowing with water. Big pot holes and craters. Open manholes. It isfrustrating, scary and nerve wrecking.
I wonder why can we not build decent drains. Is it not in our genes? Do we not understand and appreciate civil engineering? Every year it rains our roads are flooded. Why don't we anticipate?
What about road quality? Is it pure corruption or ineptitude? Beats me. Our brand new multi million dollar airport leaks, gets filled up with water and loses its roof. This was built by private company and with foreign expertise. Did we manage tomake them corrupt and ineficient like us? Or they were like us only. You tell me.
