So the petrol prices are sky rocketing, and it is eventually going to affect about each and everything that we use in our day to day life. Petrol prices kept going up all throughout this year but it went up ` 1/- or so not ` 7 /- that too overnight. People will start blaming the Government etc for the hike. Basically nothing is going to change unless every Indian protest against it and that wont ever happen because that’s the Indian mentality isn’t it? Who cares what is happening in the country? Is others are not speaking against it I would speak against it either. Anyway this is post is not about that, this post is just something that will make you look at the bright side of the petrol hike and maybe a bit of peace of mind ( because honestly for some reason since yesterday when I got to know about the price hike I have this unrest in my heart telling me this is not good at all for the future, things can go terribly bad. But maybe its just my imagination. )
1 – Less Traffic
Have you looked at the traffic these days?? Almost in every part of the city? Its basically because people use their vehicle even when it is not really needed.
Which road would you rather drive on???
2 – Good for Health
Walking and cycling is actually better for your health, so walk to that place which is 10mins from your house and use a cycle to reach a place which is half hour away.
3 – Pollution
We all are aware that vehicles is one of the major reasons for air pollution. So I am looking forward to see a clearer sky in Mumbai.
4 – No Honking
Honking causes noise pollution so that is also eliminated.
5 – Less Road Accidents
Road accidents generally happens because of rash driving so if there are less cars on the road It might also mean less accidents right?
6 – Carpools can be use
If you just HAVE to reach your work place by a car, you can go by a carpool… save fuel!
7 – Save Natural Resource
Petrol is a Natural Resource right? So save it… we are depleting earth of its natural Resources super quick.
8 – More Social Activity
People who travel by Trains and Bus everyday to and fro work have a special set of friends known as “Train Friends ” and “ Bus Friends ” so go on get your gang of Train Friends.
Okay this is the most I can think of for now… more on this later J
If you have any more positive things about the petrol hike then share it here!
PS – I have to add this – I was just browsing Google for the pictures I have uploaded above and I happen to see some politician’s picture there who well are related to the price hike, I couldn’t stop myself from hating them from the bottom of my heart.
