Default Driving in Delhi :D

Experience of driving in Delhi is bad enough, but see this pics and decide. Actually, I had to follow this guy for quite some time on Outer Ring Road. He was riding his Bullet (in the right most lane, along side the berm) as I couldn't shoot with my mobile phone. Got the chance on when we stopped due to red light.

(The guy was drinking while still riding the motorcycle all the time).

Don't know whether to or

PS: The identity of the person has been hidden and these pics are from movie recorded by cell phone

See the silver lining: atleast he was not drunk enough and stopped at the red light!

I really hope that the biker can focus on riding a bike than trying to reach Cloud No. 9.

For the drivers consuming the bhayankar thandi beer! I just hope they stay off the road after consuming the bhayankar beer.

Disclaimer : No offense to any sardars

Sardarji's love their drink dont they? I happen to see a very unique thing a couple of years ago one cold winter, when i was visiting Meerut.

We were at a wineshop to pick up some drinks and we see this sardar gentleman ( huge guy) on a bullet was on a ride from Delhi to Jallandhar or chandigarh, dont remember.

What we saw at the wine shop got me the goose bumps.

Sardar orders a full bottle of RK ( Red Knight)

Next minute, he orders for 2 full tandoori chicken from the guy making it next door

In less than 30 minutes, he finishes both

And, when we flabbergasted people asked him how he could polish a bottle and devour 2 full chickens. His answer was simple:-

This is my 2nd stop since Delhi will halt 2 more times before i hit my destination

Abhinav I hope thats a joke, or is it that just looking at the "Bhayankar Beer hoarding" is having an affect on you. Look at the pic again.

Now back to the topic, I fully agree that driving in Delhi can be a pain (specially if u coming from a smaller town like Jaipur). Day before yesterday it took me 3 hours from Jaipur to Gurgaon (about 200kms) and another 3 hours from gurgaon to Noida (80 odd kms via DK-ring road-dnd, including 3 tolls). And I was tired doing those 80kms more than those 200kms
