Bandhs

It was yet another bandh a.k.a. hartal the other day; and I was forced to stay home. There was no transport, and even private vehicles were scarce. While people would prefer to decry the hartals / bandhs, they serve a very good purpose -- fuel, and therefore, emissions, are saved for every vehicle which stays in the garage on that day.

Like the way they have it in some Western countries, we should have state sponsored ``vehicle holidays'' once in a while here. That should help conserve petroleum, and of course, keep pollution.
