  1. hi.. Traffic condition cannot be controlled if density is more at one place. Moreover companies should provide transport systems and timings should be well balanced to meet the rush.

  2. I echo Suzanna’s views. There is a lot that can be done, we are here to support the cause.

  3. I once participated in a ‘writerthon’. It was a world event, where for three days + three nights you sit with a group and write a novel. I remember I was not supposed to participate, just facilitate the process, meaning keep the tea flask full, etc. But the last moment, one of the guys backed off, and my husband asked me if I would like to sit on his comp. I agreed on the condition that I will be treated like a writer, and not a maid.
    So we had these six guys, including me, holed up in our apartment, some of us writing for the first time. Somehow the group dynamics worked, at least for me, and I finished the first five thousand words of a novel that is now, about to be published.
    The writerthon acted as a kick start for me to write an entire manuscript. Can we possibly do something similar on Blogadda? Something fiction?

  4. @Suzanna, Cuckoo, it definitely is a good idea to write about common issues. You get so many opinions and it definitely makes a superb read!

    @Grasshopper, Nice idea!. Let’s talk more on this.
