No Meter System in Auto Rickshaws in Gurgaon, a Major Employment Hub of India

It is a known fact that Gurgaon has become one of the employment hubs today. A number of youngsters have relocated themselves in Gurgaon as they have acquired a good job there. Moreover, a number of individuals everyday visit from Delhi to Gurgaon. Till Delhi Metro has reached the Gurgaon, the rush of Delhiites has been increased.

These days, I am also looking for a new job. I have to visit Noida or Gurgaon daily for this purpose. I have visited several times to this wonderful city. It will be significant to mention that this city is not new for me. A number of my relatives live in Gurgaon and I have been going there to meet them since my childhood. But, in the childhood, I had never thought that someday I would go there in search of a job. In the past few years, a lot of growth has been witnessed in this city, and that’s why has generated the employments.

But, there is a little problem that I have seen. When we reach IFFCO Chowk or any other metro station of Gurgaon, we find a lot of auto rickshaws picking the people and taking to their destination in the city. The problem that I have seen is that none of them has meter unlike Delhi. So, the drivers are free to demand the charge as per their desire. In that case, the person who doesn’t know how far the place is, is unable to judge whether the driver is charging correct or double of the original fare. I had to hire auto rickshaws several times for reaching the interview venue on time. I personally felt that the venue was not so far as the driver has charged. But, I had no way to judge. Some friends will say that I can search on internet. But, it is not so easy to understand the route and the charges accordingly. I can easily know about how many kilometers the venue is, but this is not enough.

Is anyone listening? Will Haryana government ever start the meter system? Time will tell.

Modi Government Has Come, Let’s Wait and Watch

Finally, India has got a new PM. It is Narendra Damodardas Modi, popularly known as Narendra Modi. This is why BJP and allies (NDA) has got 336 seats, which is really first time in its history. It is required to see now what happens next. The people of India have a lot of hope from him. Perhaps, government of Dr. Manmohan Singh didn’t fulfill their expectations.

When  Singh became PM, the people were very hopeful for him. He is the same person, whose work is remembered as finance minister at the time of the government of Late P.V. Narsimha Rao. But, it is said that this time, Singh was completely under the control of family of Mrs. Sonia Gandhi.

But, this is not the topic of my blog post. I am only thinking about new government, and whatever I am thinking, I am writing in this post.

So, I was talking about the people’s hope from Narandra Modi, nicknamed as NaMo. It remembers us the stories, which we used to see long time ago in the television that suddenly a good king has come, and now there is greenery all around; there are the waterfalls, which are the symbols of happiness. I pray to my Eeswhar for good of my nation. I have read a lot in the last few months about Narendara Modi on Facebook, and observing the people’s hope from him. I have kept a silent approach towards it till date. But today, I also hope for some good.

I have heard a lot about his development work that he has done as a chief minister of his state, Gujarat. Of course, opposition has criticized it, but there are the people from whom, I have personally heard about the good condition of Gujarat. So, hope is quite obvious. It is also true that he won the elections in Gujarat thrice with the support of common public.

But, what happens next is still to watch. Only around one month has gone, but Mr. Modi has started facing the criticisms. The major reason is the daily power cut of electricity and many more.  But, still I would like to wait. It is very difficult to improve the condition within a month. Let’s wait and watch.
