Four letter move

Chennai was facing unusual changes these days may it be neither the rains nor the lack on garbage cleaning. People watched it differently when the modern technology was involved in cleaning garbage’s by a foreign company Onyx. We set free a sigh when the corporation agreed with privatization of 4 zones of Chennai to clear garbage, and it was relief from the year’s experience of opened Lorries used by corporation that carries the garbage from a place and spreads throughout the way it moves. Many of the times it gradually affects the traffic for minutes and with unclear. I should tell Onyx workers are friendly people to the society, they have care on their work. Without monotony and with endurance they pick every bit of rubbish that left on the streets into their mobile bin. The areas that have bins looked clear and only spills when it was overfill and the time it takes to clean the bin was just 2 minutes.

These six years of Onyx’s work was ended in August and when it was time to look forward for another company to take over, then came the Neel Metal Fanalca Environment. We all expected something more than the past cleaner from Neel and it was like they have starting problem, so the outcome was the garbage stagnation at all zones. It was the situation that gone worst and the equipment where not available by Neel and the Onyxtook away the bins they placed, as soon the agreement was over. Then with the rise of complains of garbage stagnant for days, the corporation call back the Onyx to step to offer their equipments and vehicles to clear garbage till the Neel was comfort to offer their own. What to tell if rain join hands with garbage? The city muss. I heard still it lacks to clear the garbage and as it was raining there are chances for spread disease.

The Neel that took away is now started to train its new workers for sweeping roads and cleaning garbage. There have 1,300 workers so far, and the company has decided to engage workers to improve retain. A question rises what’s the stage of ex-workers of Onyx who are already and going to expel from service? Would they been searching for another job or the new Neel will accept them to work within? News today read the ex-workers are ready to work for Neel, buy the salary was expected to be lower then earlier according to representatives. Now these lives are helpless for whom to contact, with the Neel or there old house Onyx. Another difficult has opened now was the suddenly opening of holes that were once opens for wiring on the roads and then tarred without filing it properly. As the rain water soak the earth, the roads pulls interior to make riders and pedestrians hard.

Share Auto... the familiar name of Chennai residents to move. It was an auto that was shared with strangers who were to pass on the same way we go. These autos attracts the riders in cheap rate compared to yellow autos that charge high like the gold, must tell these autos make the travel easy than climbing the 2 foot height bus steps. But what a difficulty they give to others is the improper way of driving. They are not following the traffic rules, it will be the complain that all other riders would have on them, they never see who is coming on the side, they stop wherever they like, esp. on the move they suddenly comes to left to pick those standing for auto or just stop to ask any one is willing to take a ride, without care of other vehicle they are disturbing. Being a Thiruvanmiyur resident we are experiencing that every time traveling on ECR for few km from the Thiruvanmiyur to VGP golden beach. The evening and night travel in city is worst that too in the raining times, rain water stays on the road and traffic on its peak to move vehicle inch by inch, where the relief... hum.

I have no clue you have such sharing autos. Well the vehicles itself, doesn't look safe and they have only one exit in case of emergency.

Usually sharing a transportation, I thought, 2/3 ppl travel in auto and they r dropped off in he same area.

Jeevan,

Well said...

First we should thank that Onyx for doing such a great service to us.

That Neel can increase their pay, why bcoz that costs less when compared to this diaster...

Then that opening of holes is exactly right... must be changed...

Ya, that share auto drivers are driving blindly...

Those who are doing services to the public should be treated well. They are taking risk for us. We should satisfy their needs....

Alok – Thank you.

Balaji – Thank you buddy. Sure I will do and now there are some pics here, u can check.

Priya – nowadays even the normal autos are entering as share autos, where it takes more than 5 people in the place of 3. Till the fare is low and it stops where we need, people won’t care of how many they share and the auto is safe or not. The government can only arrange it properly.

Kalai – Thanks Friend. I feel Only is doing better than… and govt. can continue them in service. Yesterday I saw the new dustbins where is was small and the large amount of garbage’s are dropped outside the bin. Last week a son and his father lost life because of this carless opened holes, even no action was taking on its, so bad.
You’re right, proper arrangement must need soon for Share Autos. They also skip the signals that badly affect others, once we were too met with one of them.

Keshi – Thanks dear.

Balar – uyira kaila pudichikkeettu than poganum, it was years I travel in autos. The modern technology was in force for 6 years for now, they have done best works.

Krystyna – Thank you. Happy weekdays dear!

Neha nair – Welcome here! I only wrote it, I no need to google to write what we experience. Thank you :)

Ammu – Thanks.
