“All of life’s problems can be solved with two things—duct tape and WD40. If it moves and it shouldn’t, you need duct tape. And if it doesn’t move and it should, you need WD40.”—Unknown

This problem is all the more apparent when one is travelling the length and breadth of this vast country, with its diverse landscape, from the blazing hot sands of the Thar desert to snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas, from the wildlife-rich forests of the North East to the confluence of three seas at Kanyakumari.
