Will petrol hike lead to positive health consciousness?Mr Modi and his entire team are the subjects of thousands of memes in Tamil on social media. These are outright very funny. Yet, some are thought-provocative as well.
For example, many are based on the concept of walking up to five kilometres to save on petrol or using cycles for short-distances. Since both these activities are good for health, will this possibly become a way of the future, more so when, after the elections to the State assemblies in May, the petrol prices are expected to cost more than Rs110 per litre, according to some experts?
In any case, carpool may happen even more and there could be many more service providers who will work on low-profit margins but huge volumes by offering such services.
What will the common man do now?
