Automobiles are spawning the growth and development of roads in India as they did in the USA many decades ago. In many parts of the country, national highways are being converted to multi-lane expressways. And in places like the crowded Kerala, where expansion becomes difficult, road surfaces are being improved.
For a person born in the 1960s, I have grown in an age where for decades the Ambassador was the only mode of transport from point A to point B. We filled the car with friends and relatives and rode on two-laned highways and pot-holed byways. A generation of Indians may soon be born that will take for granted the presence of good roads.
