What a news I read this morning. Metro to be started by 2021 in my own city Chandigarh. Ya, long way to go yet. Almost three years ago, administration planned to bring metro in Chandigarh. Chandigarh is a city and also a union territory of India. It is also the capital of two states Punjab and Haryana. It is the cleanest city, beautiful city and is also on the verge of becoming a smart city. Paid parking systems to go automated, phone bills and electricity bills can be paid in just seconds. who has time? who has time to stand in long queues. who has time to even go to the sampark centres to deposit bills. who has time to stuck in traffic. and comes the metro to rescue us.
Yes, metro in Chandigarh. Chandigarh is a small city indeed but with a population of 1,123,983 . Of course, Chandigarh wont look the way it looks now when metro will come but it will be required. Then you will see metro going above you when you are on your way to sector 10. you are used to see the mountains and then you will see metro. how is that?
and how is that when you leave your home to office at sharp 9 am and leaves office at 5 pm and you are stuck badly in the traffic for an hour. not cool. right? infact sometimes people here think it would have been better to stayed back at office for an another hour. at least you get to see the clean roads and would reach home in just 5 mins.
Also, ladies up here are becoming independent but when it comes to commuting alone, i mean if they are driving by themselves that you see less. so yes one more positive point is that the ladies wont have to be dependent on their husbands, boyfriends, brothers, fathers if they want to travel. they can get in a metro and can go whenever they want to, wherever they want to.
and for all those like me who have not seen the metro life, its time. 🙂
