Our world

 
A lantern in shape of a cooking gas cylinder to highlight the plight of the common man as the Government has restricted the use of subsidised cylinders available to just 6 a year. Anything more would have to be purchased at double the price.

  4. We don't always like what the government do and we question the government on most things. That's too bad, but it's an interesting picture!

  12. a novel way to protest. But the sad fact remains that --- the common man's plight is completely ignored by congress.

  14. The poor common man - six cylinders a year. And if they run out where do they go? Some individuals will earn huge bribes to let them buy and sell on the black market. And I've heard MPs use anything from 30 to about 90 cylinders a year. Hope the protests are effective.

    1. Beyond six they have to purchase the non subsidised hence pay double.

  16. j & K Chief Minister surrenders his 2nd cyl, claims he did not know he had another connection. joke cause a consumer has to sign an application to get a connection.

  17. why not have adhar no compulsory for everything ? it would eliminate duplication and all data with the oil cos should be centralised so that consumption can be tracked. Of course, parliament would come up with a clause exempting themselves from the cap or maybe allot themselves free supply of gas since they need to entertain their voter base like they have free mtnl calls, train & air travel etc etc. why not petrol & diesel also?
