Living on the narrow stretch called Russa Road, close to Tollygunge Cemetery, is slowly turning into a nightmare. The peace and tranquility of the area has been completely shattered by a thick flow of vehicles. The constant honking of lorries whizzing past throughout the day is just unbearable. Kids are finding it difficult to concentrate on their studies, but the elderly, suffering from heart ailments, are probably the worst hit. Sound pollution in the area has also exceeded the normal limits.
