There's no way to know if Mayor Michael Bloomberg's trip on the New York subway was the inspiration behind the Centre's latest austerity drive. Though we know for sure New Delhi is no New York. During New Delhi's peak hours, for example, forget finding a seat, even getting enough place to stand is a challenge in local buses. But it seems the government wants citizens to do just that, i.e. take the bus to work at least once a week.
