Yes sir!.

A cracked distributor cap and the faulty Maruti Zen car, which was dripping fuel. Both a perfect combination for disaster to happen.

Somehow did not notice, did a complete run to my office, to jayanagar and while i was just heading back home after a 60 km run that day, this fateful incident happened.

An autorikshaw guy helped me as a friendly angel in dousing the ever growing flame. I had over 20 litres of petrol in the fuel tank which is just behind the engine. aaaaghhhh, i still get jitters if i think about that horrid incident.

I would have lost my Bus, if not for that Autoricksaw guy.

Wow! That must have been scary. Glad to hear that you're ok and the flames were doused quickly.
