I am very desperate to write a blog. I can’t find a good topic to write on, but I just want to write something, any crap , but something. So this blog is more out of desperation to write , and not about something that has occupied my mind from sometime, because that is the time when I usually write.
Speaking of desperation, people are getting desperate day by day. In this country, people are just trying to run and reach their destinations without even thinking with their brains whether their desperation to reach there will create problems for others. Now, I am not writing about ‘ life ‘ and I am not being philosophical here.In the literary sense, I am talking about people on roads. ( Now read the line in bold again) .Anyways, I am talking about Pune traffic here. Most of the traffic jams , actually all of them are created because no one wants to wait. If there is a junction with no signal , and vehicles coming from all 4 sides, then there has to be a traffic at peak times. And the worst thing is , when there is a traffic jam, show that their getting very very late and act as if out of all the people stuck in the traffic jam, they are the ones who need to get out first. And in that pretext , they stick their vehicles more and more into the heart of the traffic jam .
Now, whenever there is a traffic jam, if there are 4 roads at a junction, 3 sides have to wait, and let the 4th one to go or allow the vehicles of that road to clear away . But , in Pune , all hell breaks loose and everyone just tries to move their vehicles nearer to the center of the traffic and occupy any space that is available. They dont even listen to some volunteers , or individuals who take matter in their own hands and try to release the jam. I had 2 experiences today of a traffic jam. And one more I had at Prabhat Road 1 month back in which I was stuck for 20 minutes, on bike. I dont know what would have happened if I was in car !
