Influences and Influencers

We learn different aspects to different people/moments we come across in life... afterall we are but sponges, who absorb what we come across, both positive and negative...

The love for history from a fabulous teacher in school who kept narrating history of the world like small anecdotes she witnessed herself....
The love for reading from a doting grandfather who would mark out snippets in the newspaper for us to read...
The fear of traffic defaulters from the accident of a dear friend...
The list is endless....

But we somehow ignore the inherent reason we are able to soak all this up... the gene pool and the environment we grew up in, thanks to our family and near and dear....

The "Odd" Even Choice

Ok... So the Delhi air still looks quite smoky and polluted.
But the one thing no one who has travelled the Delhi roads in the last week will deny... is that irrespective of what impact this odd-even formula has had on the pollution levels, it has definitely made driving on Delhi roads a pleasure again.

So for all the critics, presenting to you, the clean.. oops, empty Delhi roads..

Kudos to all the people travelling on the Delhi roads these days... for putting up with the buses, metros, autos, cabs.. whatever it takes.. to make it work !
