A lot has been said and analysed about the new rule initiated by AAP government in Delhi.Though DU students have been exempted from this odd-even dilemma yet they are quite apprehensive about it. So its time to think about new excuses and to reach office/college on time.
Of course, commutation would become a big problem. But at least, the old excuse of traffic jam would get a vacation now. The new excuse would be, ” Sir aj even day hai and odd no. Ki gadi ni mili “. Quite acceptable though.
The concept of odd-even rule is a nice step towards controlling the increasing pollution on the roads of Delhi. In a study by IIT Kanpur, it was found that 60% of the cause of poor air quality in Delhi is on account of vehicular emission and secondary particulates; in summer, it is 25%. The condition is bad and before it moves to worse, it is important to control the situation. The idea is not bad, all that is required is a proper execution.

P.S: Being bad in maths, I am still confused which one was odd and which one was even. Wait. Hold on. What about 0?
