The areas of growth for us as a nation have been limited in recent years. Barring fuel prices of course. Every second day, the cost of petrol and diesel rises a bit, and while that is a big concern for the citizens, the politicians have found a philosophical angle in it.

Troubles make you realise the happiness of good times. if there’s no trouble, you won’t be able to enjoy happiness.
