“If I don’t leave tonight, I wouldn’t be able to make it to the conference tomorrow.”

Though it was raining heavily, he decided to drive down much against his family’s wishes to wait till the next morning. The highway surrounded by mountains was prone to getting dangerous from landslides and other accidents during poor weather. But he was always up for challenges.

When he didn’t call the next morning, his parents filed a missing complaint at the police station. His body was found a few days later far away from his car which seemed to have fallen down a cliff.

More than 1.4 lakh deaths in 2012.

70%  accidents due to drunken driving.

A huge increase in fatalities.

Driving in India can be a big nightmare for each of us every day of our lives. There’s every kind of vehicle be it bikes, cars, trucks, buses, rickshaws and what not jostling for space on the road. Oh how can I forget one more thing? There are people crossing the road as well. And not one but thousands of people cross streets, roads and highways of India every second, every minute and every hour. Add to this, the condition of roads which people have to drive on. And you have a recipe for a disaster waiting to happen.

Someone has truly said that if you can drive carefully and safely in India, you can easily drive in any part of the world. Now that’s saying a lot, isn’t it? So how do we ensure that we are safe on the roads in the country whether we are in the drivers seat or crossing the road as a pedestrian? How do we ensure that driving in India is not a nightmare that we have to face day in and day out?

The winter is coming in just a few days. Have you bought your warm clothes yet? For those who don’t really have a season called winter, do you have any plans of traveling to the mountains on a trip?

The snow is slowly starting to cover the mountain peaks. The trees and flowers have begun to disappear behind the white blanket created by the snow.

We humans are never happy. When it’s really hot, we crib about the extreme heat and how rains would make things better. When it rains, we crib about how too much rain is pouring water over our plans to hang out. When its really cold, we pray that it becomes warmer so that we can live in peace.
