This sure is not smooth like a divas cheek. Roads in medieval times were damaged by weather, wear and tear, negligence, vandalism and governmental corruption – similar to those responsible for bad roads today. Road repair is often undertaken just before the monsoon by the contractors so that the poor quality of material used and poor workmanship resulting is pot-holes and washed-off-surface could be attributed to the rains.
