Came across a forward of this set of pics for bus stops, can’t resist sharing them!



watermelonAmazing, isn’t it! Now, that’s called creativity!For more pics, google “bus stops all over the world”…

When will creativity foster in society? Only if there is peace and contentment. Contentment is the mother of creativity. You can’t be creative with a frustrated state of mind, can you? You can’t make something creative without a peaceful, nourishing environment.

It also needs a governance that allows freedom of thought and action. A government which doesn’t make you go through a dozen departments for permission of explosion of creativity. A government which supports free market, where the most innovative applicant is encouraged. Otherwise, its all stereotype mechanical duplication of a similar stamp like structure, with no artistic sense and hardly any innovation. Mumbai BEST buses are really good and efficient. Can we have their bus stops in these creative fashion? Something that a Mumbaiyya will also personally relate to? Mumbai rains are famous for clogging roads, resulting into something like this and this:


Hope to see better Bus stops and more prophylactic efforts by the government!
