The Silver Lining

Its so heartening to see more and more people opting to use bicycles, share cabs,bike taxis and carpooling to reach their destinations . Government also pitching in by facilitating detours and signal tweaks for the cyclist to ride safely . This are the silent revolutions necessitated by the advent of Corona virus and the subsequent social distancing, which was long overdue. We are also witnessing the benefits, buses are less crammed which would lead to fuel guzzling ,toxic fume spewing old buses going off the road for want of passengers. The government could do well by providing the bus operators E-buses on easy loans so that the problem of air pollution could be solved to a large extent. My heart used to ache deeply with concern to find it quite uncomfortable to travel windows down without AC, earlier due to high amounts of pollution. Now I sincerely hope the situation would improve for the better health of mankind.
I also request my fellow citizens to not to bring out their cars and bikes just for joy rides or for enjoying long drives with your friends rather it would be lot healthier if share cycle rides with them ,it will go down a long way to solve traffic congestion ,air pollution and global warming .What say?

  1. These are all Corona effect; once Corona is gone everything will come back again.Lot of things depend upon the goodwill of the government and their consideration for taking any decision is different.They take only those decisions which brings vote for them. Pollution will remain a less important subject for them unless majority of the population get concerned about this. Think about the conditions of the Private buses, yellow taxies, trucks and matadors. Owners of these vehicles will never asked to improve the conditions of their vehicle as they are one of the important patrons of the government present or past.

    1. Absolutely right, this ramshackle fume spewing vehicles must be immediately phased out .We’ve to collectively point out to the government the dire need of it to pull its shocks and show some determination to ban them from the road.They have to bow to public pressure and we must raise our voices in every forum available to us.
