Ticket bar to station entry

I take the Metro to school from Belgachhia to Rabindra Sadan. Hence, I buy the 80-ride-2-zone tickets for my convenience. But unfortunately, the ticket gets stuck in the punching machine at the stations after about 10 days of use. Getting the fare reimbursed is a loss of time and energy. The authorities must rectify the faulty machines or replace them with new ones.

Care for wings

Quite a few care centres for animals have come up in the city, but there are none for birds. Often, injured birds fall prey to stray cats and dogs.

Scent of a route

A large number of commuters take the bus on route 47B from the Kalindi bus stand. Potholes of various sizes have scarred the approach road to the bus stand. A vat located on the road emits a stench, which makes passing through the stretch almost unbearable.
