Around 15K deaths because of potholes in last five years


Bad roads, potholes, India,

Some data are very shocking and unbelievable. One similar data is about around 15K deaths in India because of potholes. These numbers are so alarming that even the Supreme Court of India raised a question on this issue. It is bad for any country to have so bad roads that they start killing more numbers of people than the actual numbers of people killed by any kind of war in country. This clearly states that we don't need wars to kill people because our roads are already doing this job. The condition of Indian roads has always remained a matter of debate. Despite so many efforts, the condition of Indian roads is not good.

Even in big cities, it is very common to find potholes and bad roads then who cares about the small cities and villages. The main reason behind such problems is that there is no system to make concerned authorities accountable. The officials involved in road construction don't do their jobs properly and high corruption is another reason which fuels such problems. On these bad roads when people don't follow rules and regulations then chances of road accidents become very apparent.

I have been driving on the Indian roads for more than fifteen years and I have faced many such problems with the roads. It is a constant affair to find bad roads when you are driving and sometimes, you find so bad road that you don't want to drive on them. Today, we are seeing lots of progress in road infrastructure; however, still, a lot is required to be done. We need an immediate mechanism to fill all potholes as they appear but sadly such swift response is still missing. Many potholes remain unattended for months and waiting for big mishaps to happens.

In India, we need a strong policy on this matter so that we can provide good  and safe roads for our people.

Thoughts on Republic Day

Republic day is celebrated on 26th January every year in India. The major reason behind the celebration of 26th January as Republic Day of India is that on 26th January 1950 India became fully sovereign nation because constitute of India came into force first time on this day. Another reason behind the celebration of Republic Day is rooted in Indian national congress’s decision to celebrate this day as Republic day of India every year during the Lahore session. From 1950, Indians are observing 26 January as Republic day of India. On this day, the whole nation remains on holiday and people of India salute the sovereignty of India by hoisting Indian Flag.
