An extremely valid and practical petition, dear Mohana Rajan, that you've brought up on the subject of "managing" stray dogs which really have taken the shape of kind of menace. Thank you for taking the matter up and I'm sure that you will get widespread support from the Local Circle communities. I just signed the petition together with some of my own observations/comments. more

We at Nehru apartments, Kalkaji have identified some vegetable and fruit vendors, given them I cards and allow them in the colony with in a fixed period like between 9-10.30 am only. For kabadis, we had made a process of lottery, that we will allow only 4-5 kabadiwalas inside by lottery system. It works very well no other vendor is allowed. This has been going for more than20 years now. more  
Your one question gives rise to several counter-questions, my dear!

According to my "limited" information the vegetable vendor, the fruit vendor and perhaps also the fruit juice vendor and not to forget the Mother Dairy ice cream vendor appear kind of a necessity, especially for the seniors in a locality. Would one really want to do away with them, even if they were to be banned by law?

Then there are vendors of bidis and cigarettes, tambakhoo and gutka etc. who exist only if the local policeman continues to get his regular "haftah". At least that's what I'm told.....

And many, many amongst us would rather buy a glass of chai in the morning, rather than go to the effort of making a cup at home.....too much expense on gas or electricity for that one cup/glass of chai. Would you want to do away with these chaiwallas?

And, having said that, why do we accept as given the existence of a "mochi", the shoe mender every two-three streets, or the roadside book/magazine seller, the phoolwalla?

There are always pros and cons of situations.
Are we tolerating or accepting co-existence?
These questions, my dear, I leave unto you to answer...... more
