Urbanization and Transportation in India

Rajesh Jain continues with Ideas for India – Part 2 which made me take another look into the archives.

    On urbanization, I dont necessarily believe in it as much as I dont believe in planned centralized economies which have been documented to fail. Besides, something has been done recently on this blog.

    On transportation, well, of all problems in India, where people can take a crack at solving, it could be it. I hate commuting – to anything. Bad transportation or not. 80% of urban people do not need to go to office to do their desk jobs in this era of computerization is what I feel. But then, I guess, people like this kind of moving about…

    Coming back to the solution. Police should just arrest people who single-drive their cars and scooters and/or force people to pool – even, on an ad-hoc basis like share-autos which are proving to be the most convenient of private transport systems which has borne out of free-market. Better still, confiscate and make vehicles public property. Desperate measures are needed for desperate situations.
