atleast nobody is hurt its great that Manik was generous
but remember when driving in India its very risky with all those autorickshaw buses and trucks,peoples coming out of nowhere in between the roads leading to numerous accidents.

@ Manik a very noble gesture of you to pay the drunkard, But more or less..You were equally responsible and things could have gotten worse.

The car was driven at 100 Km/ph on city roads, You braked down to 65 Km/ph..excellent braking...However the 80,000 could have been saved if you were driving at city limits.

Consider yourself lucky and thankful, Always expect the unexpected reaction and response from Other Road Vehicles and irrespective- Red, Yellow, Green- Always Slow down at a Traffic Intersection or Red light and specially in Residential Areas.

See, that is what i meant. I could manage to look real sorry especially with your body guards pointing .44s at me.

thats one big list after hitting an auto!

my car got kissed by two rickshaws in 2 years and in both of them the drivers where drunk!. this shows auto drivers dont care.

you must be a really generous person to buy a new auto for him.
so has your car gone in for repairs.

Hey, i think it is a cycle rickshaw, not an auto. He would have paid 3 L if it is an auto.

dosen't a brand new auto cost just 1.2 L.

and how will the car suffer that much damage after hitting a trike and the owner must have been in a bad shape after the accident.

manikjeet what was it.
