I always find it difficult to decide if a government initiative is useful, meant to do good for society. This thought came to my mind:
AC cars reflect betterment of life, but unknowingly, it changes the life of beggars at signal ! so do AC buses to rickshaws and autos in a city. I observed this while talking to a few rickshaw wallahs in Patna. There are thousands of rickshaw wallahs in Patna, and so are auto drivers. The change that is bringing a new fleet of buses for intra-city transport is excellent. Everyone is appreciating and is definitely for good ( I would have done the same thing). But sometimes we don't understand (or think?) how it can affect the lives of many others (Auto and rickshaw-wallahs in this case)!
Sometimes I find it difficult to decide whether to use services or avoid if child labor is involved. Which one is worst - to use it or not? If you don't use it - it might just make life more miserable for those kids. If you use you in a way, it is supporting child labor!
To me, making people jobless without a proper plan of habitation is worst! - which generally is the case!
