Limit number of TV serial

It is observed that many TV serials continue for years after years with even change in generations of the characters shown in such TV serials. It makes viewers TV-addicted with an unimaginable number of total man-hours viewing TV-serials only adversely affecting studies of students and proper attention to children by mothers who are victims of such addiction. Already social media has ruined life-style and working-efficiency of all including office-goers.

Union Ministry of Information and Broadcasting should regulate a maximum number of episodes in a normal TV serial to say 52 (one year). However, such a restriction may not be there on epic-serials. Even TV serials with a single story in each episode can also be exempted.

God’s Friday

‘Good Friday’ is a great festival of Christians. It usually falls between March 20 and April 23. This festival is observed to mark the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

Good Friday is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and His death at Calvary. Initially, it was called ‘God’s Friday’.  In the Eastern Orthodox Churches, it is known as the ‘Great Friday’.

On this day prayer and meditation take place at all churches. Good Friday is observed as a day of fasting, mourning, sorrow, and prayer.

Suspend E-Challans till roads are fit for travel!

Traffic discipline is absolutely necessary but E-Challans are a farcical exercise if most of the city roads are dug up for one reason or the other. Often the green light at traffic signals turn red even without a single vehicle moving which is cause for concern & motorists forced to break rules, else, stranded the whole day on roads. 153 crores is a lot of money collected by RTO as fine and a staggering overdue sum of 228 odd crores yet to be collected means the e-challan system has its faults when those fined are unaware of the offence.

E-Challans should be suspended till Mumbai roads are done up and fit for travel without hassles. Every car owners cell number should be registered compulsorily with RTO so that it becomes easy for the department to inform the car owner about offence and easy to collect fines. Fines should not be a revenue generator but a tool to impose discipline on roads for safe travel!
