There is a reason my signature reads the way it does. Let there be political freedom for all men. Let there be an end of suffering augmented with personal enlightenment for all sentient beings.
The "Great Souls" of this universe wish it so.

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY.
This has happened to a friend of mine in Indirapuram
Today 14th August 2008, on the eve of Independence Day Celebrations, I had a shock of my life. Coming to my work I saw a reckless driver of SUV - Tata Safari who blindly took U - turn in very high speed, missing 3 cars and my bike by few inches and stopped in middle of road. This incident took place in front of Shipra Sun City. I noticed many other vehicles were still and it looked like a nasty traffic jam, I decided to cross this traffic from extreme side as I was on a bike, just few meters ahead of this SUV a cab and a bike (which seems to be in some kind of accident) were the reason for this traffic mayhem.
As I approached this deadlocked area, four guys from that SUV came out with an automatic rifle and approached the bike rider and cab driver. Guy with rifle shot fire in air and others start beating the driver and bike rider. I was too close to this spot, witnessing all this and was scared as this guy with gun was waving this arms madly, for a second I though, his one mistake might end my life there and then.
I somehow managed to escape this traffic deadlock and approached traffic police stationed just 200 meters away from this location. By the time I reached these cops, other drivers were reporting the same incident. I too told them of the incident and the SUV registration number but they were staring at us in disbelief and it took these traffic policemen 10 minutes to react and that too only when the said SUV crossed us in high speed. Police stood there as mock witness and did nothing.
After reporting this I took my way back to office, thinking what I could have done differently to stop those nuts from doing what they did? To my surprise, I feel no better to admit that, I was too week to intervene or to take a stand in front of waving guns on road. All this happened in morning and now its 7 pm evening and I am still thinking about it.
