What can we do to be from fuel hikes? Here are a couple of things right off the top of my head.
Maybe it’s time to go back to our forefathers’ mode of transport: use horses instead of cars. But no, that won’t do. Horses were used only by the king & his men. So we the aam aadmi can try cows and donkeys. They are easy on our shrinking pockets – no refueling, no servicing & low maintenance.
Instead of ambulance, hospitals can utilize the services of the ubiquitous bullock cart. The bullocks will surely navigate through traffic better. All they have to do is poke the guy who doesn’t let them go through! They can assure patients of better & faster service. And all this with no fuel!
Our dear politicians can be given the work from home option. That is, if they finally, really, want to work. No force, no compulsions, please! Zabardasti nahin! And if they do agree to it, all those ‘lalbattis’ will be off the road. Utopia!
The racer boys can be requested to switch from drag races to cycle races. Instead of burning fuel, burn rubber!
And while we are at it, we can give it a shot & ask Dr. Vijay Mallya, who is busy with the upcoming Formula One racing, to invent a car that runs on beer. Nothing is impossible for our own Mr. Flamboyant.
