‘There is a method in madness’- that’s what they say. But somehow- the current situation of traffic in Delhi makes me think differently.
I almost had a run-over yesterday. And ya ya.. it was scary and everything. It made me jump out of my seat with goosebumps on my skin. And it made me see clearly at a few things- it made me think what if this was it. How would it have been? No last words to anyone… So many dreams-never-lived….
But it also made me realize that in Delhi one can never drive safe! You just never know when a bus would suddenly change direction, or when a biker would snug by your side or when a drunk driver would appear out of nowhere…. I know what’s destined will happen but there are things which are in our control! seriously! If only people act a bit maturely while driving. What will happen if you get a few minutes late? Will the sky fall down? For once, try and act like adults.
Traffic situation in NCR is becoming worse day by day. On top of the jams and terrible roads– don’t forget the main irritants- racing bikes/cars/buses or non-stop honking or the lane-changing discipline. Yes- I call it a discipline because- trust me- it takes years of training to be a perfect lane changer! What with signalling a right turn from the right most lane and then taking a left turn at the last moment! Wow! I mean- seriously- Wow! That takes practice.
It’s beyond jokes now. It’s about life and death. And more importantly- its about someone else’s life or death.
Think about it when you drive next time.
