One problem, many solutions


Fuel prices are rising, again. We are rolling our eyes, again. And since desperate times call for desperate measures, without much ado, here are a few alternative transport ideas inspired by our favourite Tolly celebs, which will make you ponder ‘what if?,’ ‘should I?’ and ‘about time!’


With fuel prices rising with the mercury, the good ol’ bus no. 11 bus, aka your feet, are the best money savers.


Boat ride

Being by the water is always a cool idea, especially in summer. Take a ride on a ferry and enjoy the Ganga breeze like Jisshu and forget about fuel prices.


A different (and literal) kind of horsepower to the rescue… Only fuel required is grass!


18th century: If they have no bread, let them eat cake!

2022: If they can’t drive, let them fly!


Swim to work? With the way fuel prices and global warming are rising, we may have to!


Ditch those app cabs, hop on to a train and put on Chhaiyya Chhaiyya.

Gourab’s click has us rooting for this never-out-of-style mode of transport, which is eco-friendly and a great form of exercise.

Parambrata Chatterjee

Parambrata’s ‘Pawri’ idea is duly noted. Cycles are love, and fun!
