Rein in the rage - Short Take - Gulf Today Dt. 04 January 2014

To write or not, has always been a mind teaser within me. Expression of thoughts as it comes has been an unwinding process for a long time.

From small topics to bigger ones, by now, it has indeed given me lot of space on the Web. As also, several contributions to the community.

Earlier days, they used to repeatedly say pen is mightier than the sword. In a way, it is true even now.

One such achievement is the effort for continuous campaigns on pedestrian safety.

The media and authorities are devoting more attention to streamline things to make our roads much safer.

However, there are a few who ignore the basics and cause destruction to themselves and others.

New Year eve was one such occasion where I witnessed road rage by many, for no reason whatsoever.

Some cars were moving at unimaginable speed and coming too close to the bumper.

I was imagining a driver who was new on the road to get in between these mad minds.

More needs to be done to alert authorities and control this tendency and try and curb it as much as possible.

There is no rest for me till then. I will continue to write, using all possible platforms. That’s the resolution for 2014.
