one more accident on Hosur Road, one more dead

It is indeed a sad day, i started for office late, and what i saw on the way was a shocking accident. A bus in trying to speed thru the traffic had crushed a man on a motor bike to death.

Enough has been said and written about the suitability of this road to handle the increasing traffic situations. I guess people dying almost every other day on this road is not a good enough reason for the decision makers to take the necessary steps and hasten the process of widening the road, building proper cross bridges for people, completing the work at hand on time.

A lethargic government like the one here in B'lore is bound to face defeat at the hands of the electorate, but what amazes me is the lack of any sense of responsibility amongst the officials and politicians.

It's probably foolish of us to expect anything better from these folks and the day is not far when they would expect us to build our own roads, drainage systems and make our own electricity - Total independence!

Isnt that our software firms have done...they have their own buildings, water, back up electricity which is almost a mini power station and their roads and transport. Hand over Bangalore to the IT guys! They can do it.
