The problem of roads getting flooded is a monsoon phenomenon which most cities in India are familiar with. While civic bodies have repeatedly failed in tackling this menace, "top mix permeable" has come to the rescue.

As can be seen in a recent video, "top-mix permeable" is a special kind of concrete which can absorb 880 gallons of water per minute. The video which looks spectacular also shows how the concrete can avoid slippery wet roads and pavements after the rains.

The concrete that literally drinks like a fish absorbs water like a sponge so that it gets accumulated as groundwater instead of getting wasted. How cool is that?
