Definitely a hatch.But doesn't look like an i20 or swift to me. Looks more like a Ritz or Punto

i agree, but the body looks short for a Punto. also, the hood of the Punto is longer, which is not in this case. i think i'll finalize on Ritz!

The doors fully covering the A-pillar means it will be either Indica / Swift. And it doesn't have the swept back head-lamps of Swift. So, definitely it is an Indica.

From experience, the most arrogantly/stupidly driven vehicles in cities are the two wheelers. My experience is as a pedestrian, cyclist, car driver and passenger in varied vehicles.

These two wheelers are driven anywhere and any way. Go on pavements, wrong side, through gaps and generally like a point and shoot kind of device. Never know when a one of these pops out from a crowd of vehicles or somewhere.

A lot more of road rage is caused and tempers flared by the people driving these vehicles compared to others.

Personally, 99% of the time I escaped from being hit while crossing roads is when these vehicles are involved (Even though they may be 10-60% of vehicles on those very roads).

There was once a time when I thought trucks and buses as most dangerous but that is no longer true.

yep, you're right - that's a Indica

if you look closely (using Magnifier at 400%) you can see the Tata logo on the rear. also, the circled area matches the Indica and not the Ritz or Swift

** MODS PLEASE DELETE IF INAPPROPRIATE **

This is not from India, but from China. A Couple who decided for a few of intimacy drove to a Roof Top Park. The Couple left the Engine running to make use of AC. But in the heat of moment, Uncle accidentally kicked the reverse gear and the Car reversed crashing into the peripheral wall. But luckily the Car got struck and half the car was hanging outside. Nearby People pulled the couple out of the Car

(this was really a sickening experience). so near Okalipuram junction I spoke to the traffic inspector who stopped this car and asked the driver to get down.
Then came the 3 women out of the car telling that it was I who hit their car first and practically pulling my jacket. when I remember that, even now I feel, do we have such sort of hooligan women around us?. it was really nasty the inspector looking at this asked me to raise a complaint at the station.
after this I came to the office and have raised a complaint on the BTP site.
need to see what happens next.....
Looking at it from a lighter perspective, perhaps,

1. The dude has three wives who were driving him nuts arguing over GOD Only Knows what, which partially explains his bad driving.

2. Some joker that believes he has made it to afford the elite and deadly team of women bodyguards. Gdaffy duck style?

3. You had a jacket on.

4. It was your jacket and not any other clothing.

5. 3*PMS

6. That cop was scared, but did not show it. ( probably a failed actor!)

7. Proves riding a Thunderbird does not make an Arnie out of the rider.

8. AXE Effect?

to be contd.....


Jokes apart, Slapping a woman is not cool. Very uncool legally. Its a free world, we have lunatics among us, learn to judge the level of lunacy with these characters. Next time you see someone like him, let him pass, he deserves something better, a nice little sewage tanker with friendly men that drive around on that. There wouldnt be jackets to pull though!

Did Mr.P.Tom confirm it was the uncle and not the aunt that engaged the reverse gear?

Was Mr.P.Tom injured in the incident/accident?

Mods kindly merge posts.
