    Commendable if it can be practically done . Some top executives cycle to work with their luxury vehicles following carrying their change of clothes. We start things that are not practically possible . It's like how during the first wave of Covid growing vegetables was used as a social media trend . Wonder what happened to that ?

    I wonder if our politicians read these. They want luxury cars for them to perform their no so important duties.

    Our Ministers can't cycle to work because they are so fat and unhealthy.

    Sara, you are absolutely right, New Delhi is a “rape city”. But the Sri Lankan masses do not appreciate their own city Colombo but look up to New Delhi.

    @Sara. Please do not spread wrong information. Delhi is as safe as Colombo. Bad things can happen anywhere.
