The rains transform the smooth roads of the national capital into a chaotic traffic jam.

The Southwest monsoon has rolled into Delhi, and with it comes all the challenges that the city faces every year. Waterlogged roads, traffic jams and long commutes that feel like a lifetime.

Every year, the city promises to clean up the drains to prevent waterlogging. Sure, it is much better this year, but traffic is still a mess. Well, part of the reason for these jams is indiscipline among drivers. Most don't even pay attention to traffic signals, and with no traffic cops in sight during the rains, it's a free for all.

A normal 45-minute, 20-kilometre drive to work turns into a 90-minute adventure once the rains begin. Yet, the city looks beautiful in the rains. Watch this 90-second hyper-lapse video of a 90-minute commute to work – from South Delhi to Noida.
