Without any hesitation anybody,anytime,anywhere can authouritatively say roads are the greatest assets of any dispensation/every dispensation.
The father of the nation puts it-
“good means to good ends”.
In samskruta subhashitakara endorses-
“margarabdhaha sarva yatnaha phalanti”.
In ramayana,sita held by ravana the king of lanka-utters- to anjaneya-
“shivascha tedhvastu haripravira”.
In gist both the samskruta quotations explicitly reveal the magnanimity of roads.
Every one knows-realises-understands roads for-
Transportation,connectivity,betterliving conditions etc.
Roads for tourism,education,entertainment,surviving(living),eliminating(killing/death),
Are also the realities surely.
Agitations,demonastrations,dharanas what not,why not-all there everytime.
Roads-boost economy-saving of time,saving of life,saving of material,etc.
Roads for saving if good-made,maintained,used.
Roads for losses if made bad,maintained bad,used badly.
The roads have 2 distinct clear edges-
The roads for commotion,promotion,emotion,confusion-the majesty can also be a mistry.
Politics into roads/roads for politics-quite alarming,mindbogging,bargaining,gaining,losing-every story a reality 100%.
Roads are quiet for reasons best known/best told.
Naming of roads,inaguration of roads,blocking of roads,digging of roads,disfiguring of roads-all by the general public,for the public-that is the amazing story there.
Roads for the people,by the people.
The sadness is the roads did not become of the people.
Had it been or seen that way,then the roads would have roared the magnanimities ever.
Roads for great victories,failures are very true.
Investments in/on roads-capacity buiding-improved infrastructure/s-very potential in employment generation.
Roads-highways,artilleries,lanes etc. all for the good of any society.
Roads deliver return on income-wise decision.
Roads are eternal assets if really cared.
Roads contribute to peace and tranquility-very good societal upkeep-healthy condition for governance.
Roads-for circuses-of any sort-everysort indeed.
Roads for playing of all sorts of the games.
Roads for the great innovative –“the run”-for syndromes of late the order of the day.
Roads for the toppling-topping-tapping.
Think an issue there the road very handy commodity indeed.
The quality of roads-longlife both for the item and for the users always.
Roads to help bettering “GDP”-of any administration responsibility/ies.
Now-a-days, roads for farmers-throwing the agri products on them as a mark of dissatisfaction for various reasons.
Roads turn into dustbins-dumping of all types of garbages-really a horrible development of late.
Now roads with trees grown/planted eitherside for the full length-revenue eraner.
Portrays proud owners of the planted-adapted-nurished greenery.
Ministreies at every level from the village to the national level-dealing with road issues in totality.
Total involvement-inclusive governance-roads the shining example/s.
So the need of the hour-quality roads-allseason roads,roads worthy of handling heavy material/goods movement etc-need scientific dealing in making,maintaining,using the roads.
A news paper story reveals that road accidents in 2015 was 500279 in nos.
Out of this total, 146133 were fatal-losing lifes.
The average,400 deaths daily.
The survey further puts that out of 57 roadmishaps,17 deaths every hour.
We can imagine the gravity of the situation by the said figure above indicated.
The survey further puts that the fatal figures are of majority in the age group of 15-34 yrs of age.
What it means to the country,the guardians-precious loss at the time of blossoming.
Loss to the nation,loss to the family.
The topmost leadershipof the nation realizes the alarming situation and bent upon improving the road safety to avoid the dangers.
Road design-material,technology,workmanship are of utmost importance.
Lessons in practicing road safety a great boon if put in the right earnest at the earliest.
It is of very great importance to safe guard the quality roads to lastlonger thereby holding the wrong doers and punishing them with an iron hand.
Now-a-days most advanced technologies-the software for-
Road building,checking,correcting the faults are all streamlined on realtime modes/gadgets.
The latest development-3D display of the road condition to help the users are in the placement.
Roads the great assets of the society,so every citizen should be a keen interest player to assure the longevity.
The investment,the purpose are to be of uppermost priorities.
In a classic poem purandaradasa asks-
“dari yavudayya vaikunthake”-
Here it means,the way for salvation.
Let us leave the salvation component there,
We dwell upon the life on the planet earth-to make the earth the heaven,
The hell to be rooted out.
If the earth itself becomes the heaven,
Then vaikuntha which is in heaven is a reality on the earth itself.
Then where the need to ask for the way to vaikuntha at all?
Let us remove the hell and install the heaven permanently on the mother earth.
It is dear,near, no more fear.
Roads let them become the property of the humanity in all reality.
As bhagavan shri Krishna ,in bhagavadgita tells arjuna while asking him to see anything-everything in his domain in the “vishvarupa darshana”
Let the roads unveil the vishvarupa darshana of all the bests.
As every one respects,regards the lord,
So the roads be respected regarded with all magnanimities
Roads to prosperity be the property of every citizen.
This spirit,the urge,the enthusiasm,the involvement will be the monument every moment.
