Lucknow: The nawabi city was drenched by the first rains of the monsoon. While the showers were a relief for the heat-hit city, some parts, however, got completely submerged into the overflowing water, increasing the difficulty of the residents.

Forget about the lanes and by-lanes of old city, the posh localities of the state capital were witness of water logging and overflowing sever lines. Even the roads leading to Chief Minister residence, Secretariat, Civil Hospital and other prominent installations were choked after the first showers.

Interestingly, Lucknow has been chosen to be developed as a 'smart city' but display of poor basic infrastructure shows how difficult is the task.

In slides ahead are the pictures...
