    Makes sense, no matter how much money you get if you don't have a number you can't buy a car in Beijing, I know some very rich people in Beijing waiting for almost 10 years applying for a car but still can't get. For me I m lucky that I got one before that restriction rule but still one day in a week I can't drive based on the last digit of my number plate.

    I don't know if that's the solution, car sharing. they are all clean energy cars. There are several places I can see around where I live having those spots, but parking is a problem, you can't park them everywhere.

    This is democracy for countries that have not achieved western standards in demographics and education. Too much power in the hands of very low knowledge people. China had same problem and it was terrible before a strong government used force to make right adjustments. Sometimes it is necessary to take doctor's bitter medicine than it is to take lollipop from candyshop. The people in our countries are actually very similar in development before but the difference is government. We can ignore all this very obvious and clear results of different government or we can do the hard thing and really make improvements. Of course very rich and powerful people have too much power influencing government members. So the system is hard or impossible to replace. That's why China's revolution helped the major population rather than just elites. It's easy and comfortable to dismiss this as propaganda but I am not a communist and I don't really like them or their enemies but I think sometimes a strong government forcing people a certain way is better for majority.

    Well, the mylords and the joker CM's plan of attack to stop pollution is stopping bursting of crackers on a single day on Diwali.

    When you have joker as CM and Jokers as judges, then this what will happen.

    Meat, especially red meat has one of the largest foot print on daily usage but let's concentrate on patakas :D

    Thats the price to pay for Industralisation. Perhaps India can invest more in Green Technology.

    Not all hope is lost.

    India has not even completed primary industrialization. Yes, green technology,but cost is a problem.

    It's look like one scene from Blade Runner 2049.



    P. S contains spoilers. Just watch first minute. Great movie, I recommend for Sci fi fans.
