Did you ever ride your scooter or a motorcycle with lights on during daytime? There will be hundreds of people waving at you to tell you that your light is on. They do it in different ways. Some wave at you, some do sign with their hand as if they are kneading the dough. Some would even stop their bike to tell you that the light is on. Once a kid who was riding his cycle downhill really fast, abruptly screeched himself to halt and in the process almost hit a nearby pole, only to tell me that my light was on. There seems to be an overzealous concern here which I find missing in other aspects of social life in
Why is this obsession? I asked few and they told me that they can’t see a light on during daytime because it is tantamount to wasting energy. Hmm, what a concern! I am in tears now! Garbage on the streets, no problem, kids begging on the streets, no problem, oil dripping from the trucks, no problem, really bad smoke coming from faulty engine from an auto, no problem. But a light is on? Oh my god! We need to save this energy!
