A city contains many experts, incredible knowledge, local talents and millions of ideas.  For most of us what we have learned is from our lives, other inspirational people with something to share.  We all have something to give that is not always applicable to a course, or a certificate or a room full of people.  It might be local knowledge, specialised expertise or a persobal reflection or way of dealing with a problem.  Much of this brilliance is lost , or remains dormant, as only a few...

Bangalore has numerous parks that dot the cityscape. Sadly, most of them are locked through the day and only opened for those who want to walk or exercise in the morning and evening hours. That's just silly. Let's keep our parks open through the day!  Cubbon Park: probably Bangalore's last, accessible lung space and it's depleting rapidly.

Taxi Cabs (Uber, Ola, others) : a lot of them drive rashly & honk too much. A lot of this is cause their incentives are based on number of journeys a day. There is already legislation on the way to stop them from going over 2x in rates. Be great if we can add max speeds, incentives based on hours on duty (with mandatory breaks during the day for lunch and refreshments).
