'Pune-Nashik highway needs immediate attention'
I had visited Nashik recently. It took me nearly seven hours to reach Nashik from Pune, even though I went by my car. I took so much of time as the Pune-Nashik highway is still single lane.
This highway has a four lane stretch only till Rajgurunagar. After Rajgurunagar, the road becomes narrow. Hence, the travel becomes extremely time consuming.
The Pune-Kolhapur highway has been made four-lane, Pune-Mumbai Express Highway is six-lane, but why is Pune-Nashik highway still single lane? Pune-Mumbai-Nashik has been considered as the new business golden triangle.
Authorities are not making any effort to make Pune-Nashik highway a four-lane track. Travelling by train from Pune to Nashik will take 6-7 hours.
Better and faster connectivity between Pune and Nashik is the need of the hour. The authorities should take urgent steps to make Pune-Nashik highway 'a four lane track'.

'Don't dilute Rashtra Bhasha'
I will not be surprised if just like Robert Vadra, a lot of people in India believe that "aam admi" is translated as "mango people" in English.
What is surprising is that people like Vadra does not hesitate in showing his ignorance (on the language). The old generation knows well that the word "aam" that describes common man is derived from Urdu, having roots in Arabic.
The words "aam" (mango) and "aam" (common) are also spelt differently in Urdu, but there is no such provision in Hindi. My humble suggestion is that the common man (common in his ignorance of Urdu language) should stick to our Rashtra Bhasha and use the words "sadharan maanus".
