Bengaluru needs revamp of public transport system 30.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Megacities of the world have become engines of economic growth, witnesses of sprawling urbanisation and population explosion in recent decades.

The growth of income levels in all metropolitan cities is much higher than the average per capita income of the country. This shows that wealth concentration is highly polarised towards cities of the world, causing growing inequality in income distribution, on the one hand, and the pleasure for millions of owning a private vehicle, on the other. The per capita income of city dwellers is several times higher than that of rural households. Bengaluru is the countrys IT hub and the most dynamic city in the world, leaving behind Beijing, China, witnessing a rise in per capita income from a mere Rs 28,512 in 2001 to Rs 2,71,387 in 2015. This has directly influenced interest in owning private vehicles, particularly two-wheelers and cars, whose numbers have shot ...

An Udaipur lad has returned home from London by only using public transport, a journey across half the world in 40 days. Drupad Mistry travelled 21,500 km, traversing through 12 countries and 8 time zones. He took 12 trains, 35 bus rides, local shuttles, taxis, cycle and bike rides, and even camels to reach India. Mistry (32), a design consultant in the UK, quit his job in May to return home for a new assignment, but in an adventurous way. A classical musician, Mistry learnt to play the sarod from his father. "Design solutions get better as we understand more about people, the world. Sometimes it's the small things in cities or the rural countryside that gives us big ideas and new approaches to problem-solving," Mistry told DH. But he was not alone in the journey. Mistry's friends Raul and Venetia Grace accompanied him. While Raul - an IT professional from Spain and also a classical music enthusiast - completed the trip, Venetia - a development trainer - travelled only till Mongolia. The design ...
