The Butterfly Effect

Or how the lighting of a torch many months ago has affected our lives in far away Delhi.

Some time back the Olympic torch began its journey no one could have predicted a huge traffic tamasha it would create on this day. Or did we know it already? As wave after wave vehicles went past you, you felt like you were a supporting cast in a disaster movie. Everyone was running away from the monster. The Chinese Torch.

How is it that we have become the IT superpower but cannot manage our traffic for a torch relay?

Actually we could have done several things. The Delhi government could have declared holiday. Offices could have declared half day or worked late. But this kind of innovative thinking is what we expect only from other countries. The end result is that we are stuck on the road for something in which we are not even going to win a medal !!!!
