Letter to the editor of The Hindustan Times drawing attention of the government officials to the problem of unavailability of a bus stop near your colony

Sir,

Sub Providing bus stops nearby the colony.

                Through the esteemed columns of your prestigious newspapers, I would like to draw the attention of the Government towards the problem of the lack of a bus stop in the area near Mayur Vihar Aparna Apartments.

These apartments are spread upto a radius of at least 4 km, and are situated on the main road of Mayur Vihar. One can notice that buses running on the main road for all places in Delhi/New Delhi at every five minutes.

But, it is rather strange to note that the Government has not provided enough bus stops to cover all the apartments and colonies, on the road. The residents have to walk more than 2 km to catch a local bus. Hiring of a rickshaw of a three wheeler is very costly for a common man. The chilly or the hot rough weather other puts the passengers in a great problem. This also wastes time, energy and stamina of the residents.

For lady passengers it is not advisable to walk long distances from the safety point of view. No financial burden will be passed on to the government by making more bus stops keeping in view the necessity and the convenience of the residents. Being a fully residential area, it is necessary to provide bus stops at all the stops at all the appropriate points in this area.

I hope the authorities would definitely consider our difficulty and provide enough bus stops for the convenience of the passengers. It will provide relief to all of us as moving long distances of about 2 km in winter and hot sun is very troublesome and tiresome.

Yours truly

Mayank Bhojpuri

    The “ODD” formula

    There is lot of “kolaveri D” about pollution. Front page news; T.V. discussions; viral videos of Himachali lung vij a vij colourful lung of ‘Delhities’ and finally the “odd formula”. State Govt has come out with single word solution to the otherwise intricate that is to die or don’t live properly. A lay man understand that pollution is because of erratic traffic, complete absence of civic authorities, dust dunes created at every construction sites and the mounds of Garbage spread all over Delhi.
    Pollution from vehicles is directly propionate to the time spent by vehicle on the road. The simple arithmetical calculation is lesser the time of vehicles on the road less is the level of pollution. Otherwise also the slow moving traffic or stagnant traffic causes more pollution than fast moving traffic. Whereas in Delhi vehicles are forced to spend more time on the roads because of erratic traffic, blatant violation of traffic rules, complete absence of traffic police, mass level encroachments of roads and absence of lane system.

    Delhi is amongst the rare metros of the world where slow moving traffic is mixed with fast moving vehicles a rare example of “Chana Choor Garam”. One can see a cycle rickshaw loaded with iron roads crawling in extreme right side of the ring road followed by Mercedes, BMW or Audi forced to move at the speed of cycle rickshaw. Than we have lot many Auto rickshaws roaming in the centre in a zig zag manner to their convenience. Things do not stop here there are many who slow there vehicle to receive a phone call in the middle of the road forgetting that lot many people are struck because of their so called urgent call. We are also blessed with small tempos which are moving side by side so that drivers can share their day to day and sometime night experience. All this happens because there is practically no one to check and so everyone takes the law for a ride. Solution is ‘enforce lane system’ strictly.

    Apart from erratic traffic Delhi is blessed with encroachment. The footpath is encroached primarily by the shopkeepers, followed by hawkers and than by eating joints. After the footpath there is road and convention for the road encroachment is that up to ten feet you can confidently park your vehicle and after that it may be regarded as little bit objectionable.
    Very often shopkeepers place a discarded vehicle without engine in front of their shop to register a claim on the road. There is a recent phenomenon of “Valley Parking” where the shop keepers encroach the road by openly placing a board in front of their shop. After all the road in front of their shop belongs to them if not registered in any other name. As a result all the roads are reduced by ten feet and footpaths are missing in Delhi.

    Apart from the casual parking, people encroach the road by parking all their idle vehicles permanently on the roadside. Delhi roads are practically converted to permanent warehouse for unused vehicles. In Delhi permanently parked vehicles are more than the actual moving vehicles. Because of these permanently road side parked vehicles practical size of Delhi roads is reduced by one third which directly contributes to traffic jams and indirectly to increasing the level of pollution. There is need to liberate the roads from illegal encroachments.

    Erratic traffic and illegal encroachment is followed by dust dunes left at the construction sites by the contractors. You walk in any direction in Delhi and you will come across number of dust dunes or what Delhi govt calls it “KOORA and MALBA” heaps. One really wonders why the Govt wants to see it through Andoid phone equipped with sophisticated Google drive when it is visible to the naked eyes. If the Govt invest more on the “Road vacuum cleaner” than on the popular advertisement of the “KOORA” it can certainly reduce the level of pollution.
    Believe it there are many sensible ways of handling pollution than the “ODD” formula provided the intention is to correct the malady and not to encash the problem for the theatrical populism.
