Man and machine. What a deadly romance ??. Man makes machine, only for machine to kill man. A chilly irony, inexplicable and immeasurable.. to kill human beings .

To send showers of tears to humanity at the end. Man’s greatest technological creativity has become for him, one of the greatest harbingers of sorrow, misery and the ruinous, especially in our country where in we loose more than 2 lac people due to road crashes every year. Carrying a tag of number 1 in the killings on the road due to road crashes in the whole World we have made life miserable for the people travelling on our roads.

Think this way ,, In a fit of technological conquest, man makes telephones for communication , he manufactures vehicles to ease the burden of traversing territories, that the ancients found cumbersome, and nigh impossible to reach. We Indians a country of 1.25 billion people, a democratic socio republic country where in we choose our Governments to ensure our lives are safe & we get all the facilities which are enjoyed by any other human being living on this earth. We also manufacture vehicles & set their safety standards. We manufactured cheapest car in the world TATA NANO & many others like , Maruti 800 which is now Maruti ALTO , i10, Ford Figo, Volkswagon Polo , these cars sale contribute more than 25% of total sales of cars in the country. These all cars are described as Moving Coffins by New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) a Global Car assessing agency , all these cars failed crash tests and can be esaliy described as moving coffins on the Indian roads. "It's worrying to see levels of safety that are 20 years behind the five-star standards now common in Europe and North America," said Global NCAP chairman Max Mosley, the former chief of international motorsport.
