Incessant rains lashed Delhi for the fifth consecutive day on Sunday, as dark grey clouds hovered over the city skyline and key thoroughfares remained waterlogged.
However, it being a Sunday, no traffic congestion was reported from any part of the city, even as some social media users posted they had not seen such unrelenting rain for a long time.

“When the weather was muggy, we all wanted the rains. And now it seems the rains won’t stop ever. Delhiites will soon start complaining, I’m sure,” said Ram Sewak, a cab driver, as he drove past a waterlogged neighbourhood is east Delhi.
The past few days saw the large swathes of the city under several inches of water and miles-long traffic jams, throwing life out of gear. The showers forced many drivers, rickshaw drivers and two-wheeler riders to seek shelter under flyovers and at bus stops.
