Perception!! Your perception, my perception. Sometimes I feel this word "Perception" is a very complicated thing. Whats right might be percieved as wrong and whats wrong as right. We always ask ourselves whats right and whats wrong, whats black and whats white? But what we fail to see, is that it all boils down to our own perceptions.
To each his own. Thats how it rolls.
Beauty & uglyness, affection & hatred, love & lust, it all comes from our perception.

Black Poison

Each day while I chug down the road, choked by heavy slow moving traffic, to my office, I observe that Indian roads are home to every conceivable moving object. Right from Pedestrians, Cycles, Bullock-carts, Autos, 2-wheelers of all kinds, 4-wheelers in all shapes, sizes and colors. Trucks, trailers, buses, and other giants, to animals of every breed from cows, dogs, cats and such. The pot holes dont help much in already constricted traffic jams each day. Pollution is a slow poison with which we are living each day. When i see the trucks, buses, autos (3-wheelers), tempos, 6-seaters( specific to pune) emmit extraordinary amounts of black poison, I am reminded of "Green Vehicles", the ecofriendly cars.
    A Green Vehicle is one that is significantly less harmful to the environment than comparable conventional vehicles. Presently, the term is used for any vehicle surpassing the Euro6-norm such as LEVs and ULEVs, and also more informally to California's zero emissions vehicles and other low-carbon emission vehicles. Certain green vehicles may provide a way of sustainable transport.What is the relevance of these green vehicles when our local tranportations are slowly taking us on a sure shot path to death...?

To be continued. Please give your inputs.
