Dear Dr. Ahmed. Nice to read your blog on public transport. As a person soon to be shifting to Nepal to work at ICIMOD, your blog caught my imagination immediately. I have been visiting Kathmandu for a long time and have taken public transport many times. One thing which strikes me about public transport in south asia is the power associated with it. Public transport is meant to be for people who do not possess or can not possess private transport. This means that there is no feedback mechanism between the commuter and the people who makes those policies. This disconnect is seen across south asia and is one such reason why we do not have improved and safe transport in the region. I wish your initiative will change some of these. thanks again for your views. Anjal Prakash
