This morning I had the pleasure of visiting DRUKPA, a digital magazine from one of my favourite countries. Pages of the magazine took me on a virtual journey back in time by more than 30 years to the beautiful Dragon Kingdom, where I spent some of my happiest years as a school teacher.
As I clicked through the pages of the magazine, I found one article to be very interesting. This article mentions the cautious steps taken by the Bhutan Government to control vehicular traffic and pollution. Given today's scenario in our country (India) where car manufacturing industry is fast expanding and corruption is so rampant that a majority of car drivers may not actually be qualified to drive (which fact is very obvious just by observing their behaviour when driving), this article would perhaps be an eye opener to our policy makers in India.
