Hereby, I’ll request my fellow bloggers and followers to kindly read the following lines and comment on it please!

Today morning my mind revolved around a particular piece of news…

Delhi, the capital of India, is a highly polluted piece of land. And to control this state of pollution, Mr Arvind Kejriwal, the chief minister of Delhi, has decided to launch a new campaign. He calls it the odd-even formula. According to this campaign, on odd dates vehicles ending with an odd number will be allowed to occupy the streets and on even dates, the even numbered vehicles will come out. This – according to him – would ensure pollution control. This formula would be executed from the 1st of january (for a trial period of 15 days).

While some people think it surely will be a success, there are people who question the sanity of the man who proposed the plan! They believe that this would promote crime, engender loads of problems and so on! There are some who believe Mr Kejriwal is trying turn Delhi into an arcade game where you can built your own city and play cityville(a popular facebook game) or something!

What do you think? Your comments are essential!

  1. Due to traffic congestion, Manila has been practicing that kind of plan too. For Monday plates that ends with 0 and 1 are not allowed on streets, Tuesday 2 and 3 and so on. Still! Traffic is horrible but at least lesser vehicles and air pollution. πŸ™‚ nevertheless, Merry Christmas to you!

  2. Unfortunately only a complete overhaul of society can fix this pollution problem. But in desperate times even the smallest gesture might be helpful. I hope your public transport system are good enough to pic up the slack. Enjoy the festive season, and greetings from sunny South Africa.

    • Aayusi,
      Wishing you a belated merry X’mas and a happy and prosperous New year, with less pollution and more clean air to breathe and enjoy the earth we live in in.
      I like the idea of Mr. Kejriwal, maverick though he may sound and behave as- because at least he sees the writing on the wall and is doing something about it. What I don’t like is the exceptions given to certain vehicles to the odd/even formula, which to me is discrimination. Laws should be applicable to all in a democracy.
      As the pollution levels today show a slight decrease from December 31, 2015, who knows, he might just pull it off ?
      Every little drop counts is my belief and I am all for this venture.

  3. I think it is hilarious for Mr. Kejriwal to think that such a plan will be benefit those of the city, when all it will do is cause inconvenience. Let’s say that one must follow the law for the greater good blah blah blah, how does he expect this plan to be successful in a country where people barely respect traffic signals to begin with?! There are better and more practical methods to curb pollution and one of them is to keep a strict check the PUC (pollution under control) of cars on the road.

    It is good to know that Mr. Kejriwal is concerned about something like pollution, but he is far from realistic in his approach to the same.

    Aayusi I am glad you brought this up, I needed some platform to point the stupidity of his idea XD

  4. I confess to knowing little about the problem, other than, it exist. Not knowing of Mr. Kejriwal, I can only offer that; the idea may be a step, but whether it is a significant step in the right direction, or a political tactic to look as if he is being truly proactive is one that might be answered in the 15 days allowed to try his idea. Other than that; I hope you had a Merry Christmas, Aayusi. :O)

  5. My husband says they once did this in Mexico (whether they do this now we don’t know) and they’ve talked about doing it in Lima, Peru, which is extremely polluted and congested with traffic galore (I know first hand because I lived there for 2 years). What happened in Mexico is that many people/families acquired two license plates, one odd and one even so they could continue to drive every day. I hope your Christmas was nice and wish you a Happy New Year, Aayusi.

  6. at first i thought it was crazy, definitely an odd solution. but if it’s only 15 day trial, why not. You never know, it may work. You won’t know unless you try. I’d like to know how it works out.

    I think it may be confusing, may need more than 15 days for people to give it a chance

    • Yep maybe !! The thing is after hearing about Mexico and the epic failure if the plan there …people all over India r evn more sceptic hehe! The thing is there are so many exceptions to the plan that it seems impossible to engender any change ..like it’s not for two wheelers …applicable only till 8 in the evening and not applicable on women who are alone n vehicles rushing towards the hospital with a patient blah blah !

  7. I think it might not work as well as planned, but at least it’s a proactive attempt at addressing the problem I suppose – surely much better than doing nothing.

    Hope it goes well, and happy new year!
