since i see quite a few responses from bangalore junta ,just wanted to highlight there is a mid way meet (hyderabad and bangalore) planned for april 25/26.

do visit the tbhp meet section for more details.(and yes this is not a prank)

@ travelwriter : sorry man ,dont want to hijack your thread of fun here.saw many bangalore folks responding hence took the opportunity to divert their attention.

Oh come on guys - Even I got fooled when reading the first post and actually re read the entire thing to my wife. Only realising after that this is a April Fool's Thread.

All in good humour and very beleivable too. Noida is a bit notorious after midnight !!

I just hope no one ever gets in such kind of an instance.

The Mobile battery also going ' dead' could be a giveaway. That happens mostly in movies.

Hey Man .. thatz really scary. I guess your true presence of mind had helped you, but it cannot save you every time. The best option would have been to stay at office in case you are working late. One day it really doesnt matter if you sleep comfortably on bed especially when you need to risk your life for that... Neways great save... hope you are out of the shock...

@TravelWriter: make sure that it never happens to you in real, sometimes stories can even come true.

Bad taste mate! Not something anyone will want to joke about!

This is bound to happen!

And the same thing will repeat after 4 years, when one person suddenly makes an attempt to increase post count and goes reviving all such post and the cycle again starts!

And why is this in the section? This should be 'Shifting Gear'!

He he nice story, you got me into believing that it really happened. Or you could've continued the story with a lift provided to the women, he he. That would be a engrossing read.

And generally these gangs operate with toy guns , but we cannot take chances there

You have to file a complaint with police officials, so that such activity gets to their notice & they may put patrols on that route. Even if those criminals fits like glove in hand with police officials, you will not be harassed by cops for the intended complaint, but no further progress in the case. Iam not sure whether there is an option of just passing this information to higher officials at Police department and they file a self complaint and act on it.

By any chance, have you noticed the number of the car. Else you could write or mail it to media, where they will publish and invite the attention of cops
I know you would laughed through all possible ways seeing my reply

. Oh no, edit button is available only for few minutes, I wish its available anytime

You have given extra load for Mods, as this needs to be moved to 'Shifting gears" section & all the individual post count has to be reduced

And then I read the April Fool part!

Taste is debatable, but full marks for fooling almost everyone!

Good write up.
As for taste thats upon perceptions.
Honestly living in the NCR and witnessing such things around me i dont find this one funny at all.
Still made few people smile so worth your effort.
