Dear Main Stream Media, Please Stay Logical

The Logical Indian

September 22nd, 2015

It is expected that reputed media houses would be logical while posting content on their platforms. But this article by one of India’s most well known media houses defies all logic.

More high quality buses by Delhi Govt could result in added convenience for passengers, and help towards building a robust public transport system in Delhi. This can ultimately play a role in promoting public transport and lead to fewer private vehicles on the roads.

For some odd reason, this article by India Today group says that more buses will lead to more traffic!

This is exactly the opposite of what a rational person would believe, given the fact that each bus accommodates many more passengers than private vehicles, while occupying lesser space on the road in comparison on a per capita basis.

We are not sure how the reporter arrived at this conclusion, and seems like this article is either written without much thought, or politically motivated.

We hope that media houses across the country act responsibly and write logically.
