Summary: The journey between the city of Ahmednagar and the rural village of Hiware Bazar in the state of Maharashtra, India, has never been an easy one. When it rains, travelers must navigate a muddy mess—or worse, heavy flooding makes the road impassible. And even in favorable weather conditions, the route is studded with potholes.
“When we visited the village for the first time, every bone in our body hurt from all the bumps we hit along the way,” says Adil Warsi, a project manager at Deloitte India and longtime member of the PMI Pearl City, Hyderabad Chapter.
