In the early years of life we used to hear from our elders that ‘those who study can afford a car and those who don’t do, can’t buy a car. And ignorant and uneducated people have to take ride on hired cars or others’ vehicles.’ (lekha pora kore je, gari ghora chore she, sarbajane bale, murkha jara gomrah tara porer gari chore). I don’t know who wrote the small poem further proceeds warning that those who don’t go to school most likely to be run over by a motor car.

The businesses or the corporate or the ruling classes lead the same life with extravaganza, paucity, power, and pelf. Spacious house certainly with costly and foreign fittings, luxurious car more often more than one etc are the token of the people of the upper class. They can’t guess or think that the more the cars the more they will be cursed. You will surely be surprised to know that international media leaked a news this year that the planet has now 99 crore 99 lakh 99 thousand cars. In the US there 23 crore cars with 1.3 persons having a car and in China there are over 7.8 crore cars.

Whereas the energy hungry countries are invading one country after another to ensure the supply of gas, oil, uranium or going on suggesting the countries to build dam and barrage for electricity ultimately changing the courses of nature. There are now as many as 45000 dams and barrages in the world which have done lots of damages to the mother earth. But is it possible to purify water of a well without removing the dead rat which is stinking the water there.
