Say No To Fire Crackers on Diwali

Diwali is coming and everyone has started planning and buying the gifts, cloths, cards, sweets and our young generations of teenagers, children's and even some well educated mature persons are very enthusiastic about bursting fire crackers.

By saying no to Fire Crackers we might not only reduce the high costs of buying and burning these crackers, but also reduce the expense incurred in the treatment and cure of asthma and other pollution related diseases including anxiety and heart problems. Should we not act reasonably and prove ourselves to be better citizens? Should we not make improved use of our education?

Construction of new road will ease down the traffic problem and increase pace of development but Hundreds of trees has been cut down for the above mentioned purpose on the One Kilometer green belt area .  Important questions regarding environment which arises are :- 1. How the environment will be compensated? 2. Does any other location has been identified where the trees will be planted against the trees cut down? 3. What budget has been allocated for the new trees to be planted? 4. What timeline has been made. I don't think that anything out of above mentioned questions has been done but is it possible to access these information using RTI. What ar…

Railway Station

On last to last Sunday I traveled by train from Delhi to Bhiwani with family and to my surprise on Hazrat Nizamudin Railway Station on platform their is no toilet and even milk for the childrens is not available.

It is worth to be noted that Indian Railway make big claims to provide comfortable ride to passengers and its platform lacks basic facilities.

Civilized Society

Yesterday evening I travelled from ShakurBasti Railway Station to Faridabad in Local EMU (shuttle) train and the compartment is not only crowded but really over-overcrowded and even it is very tough to stand properly. A family is there in that train compartment with a 2-3 month old baby and around 4 years old boy and it is worth to mention that they are not only seating properly but other peoples are concerned taking care that they do not push the small baby & boy and their mother for space. This incident give me a feeling that we are living in a civilized society which respect the dignity of women and give preferences to small childrens.
