WHENEVER there is a problem in our country, we start blaming politicians and the government, but fail to see that many of our problems are caused by us only. A recent example is the slashing of POL prices by the government and the way the petrol pumps have reacted to this situation.

From July 1, the government again reduced the prices and to my utter dismay, even at least till July 4, I could not find petrol in any of the fuel stations. The government needs to keep a strict check on these hoarders.
