You and your boss might end up giving the same excuse for not coming to office on Thursday, thanks to the closing ceremony of the Commonwealth Games.

While a select few people would be having the time of their lives when they become part of the biggest event the country has ever witnessed, others would be stuck on the road with nowhere to go.

The Delhi Traffic Police is again going to shut off almost everything in the city and seal off most of the roads including arterial roads.

Though the Delhi government had declared Thursday as a public holiday, a number of private companies will be open for the day that will have a tough time during the peak hours. Not only this, all the markets in the city will have to down their shutters including grocery shops.

On Thursday, Delhiites will have to brace up for hour-long traffic jams as a number of arterial roads will be shut for the public.

Going and coming back to office during the peak hours will be a Herculean task.
