School Bus

After the unfortunate event that took the life of a small kid everyone in chennai is in overdrive. They will be like this for a week and go back to their original life style. The problem doesnt lie with that specific school bus or that specific inspector who gave FC for that bus.

The immediate order that came out from government is all school buses should be reinspected. One can only laugh at such amatuerish statements. What about the safety of people travelling in vehicles other than school buses? What about the safety of people travelling in unevenly constructed roads?

Sometime back a kid died after skidding on top of construction material which was put out in the road. They issued an order saying whoever puts construction material in road will be fined or arrested. But it will be difficult to find a road in chennai without construction materials occupying almost half the road.

I have written many times in this blog that human life has very little value in India. The government always washes its hands saying it cannot do anything or does certain things without commitment just to appease the people at that moment.

We have to take care of ourselves in this country where the roads are filled with idiots and the governing authority and the controlling authority (police) are the biggest idiots of them all.
