Unsafe Drains

Dear Editor,
Through your esteemed daily, I would like to bring to light the unfortunate incident that occurred to me on Nov2.
It was Thursday evening and I was walking home after shopping for groceries at Ganga market. It was dark and to avoid the unruly traffic I walked on the side of the road but to my horror accident found me! It came in form of an uncovered cement drain.
I fell straight into the drain, it must have been around four feet deep and I was drenched in the dirt and grime of the drain water.
Luckily, I managed to get out of it but was physically hurt with major scratches which affected me for atleast three days. One can only imagine the anger and humiliation I felt.
Now, my complaint is not that I fell into the drain but why would the authorities allow the drain to be kept open, Ganga market junction being the busiest in the capital? What if a child or an elderly person felt into the drain and was seriously injured? Who would take the blame?
Hence I ask the authorities to kindly look into the matter with outmost urgency to avoid any incidents in the future.
