    Marriage parties itself evil in the society, marriage parties erases lifetime earnings of poor families.
    Stop parties get simply married in mandir or masjids without band Baaja barat and save poor families.

    Passengers must keep quiet in the bus. This school trip, marriage trip, and all they load more than the capacity.

    So drivers won't get control over the bus .Secondly dancing, singing inside the vehicles make disturbance.

    Traffic Police must stop this type of vehicle and check regularly. They check only after any untoward things happen. If Police are strict, one can reduce the accident.
