"Shifting sands of time"

The practice of ‘Strewing’ sea sand before funeral processions has no religious significance or connotation whatever at all, (as confirmed now by many devout Buddhists)

On many occasions motorcyclists (especially on long distance runs) and light vehicles have gone clean across the road minus control because of the sand coating of roads, possibly.

And as important is that there will be a reduction of work in the road and sweeping.

A big humble plea to the venerated religious orders of the road maintenance authorities and ensure the Municipalities, to our roads get more road worthy for rapid and modern technology and growth to come.
