So, here I am, Mrs. Achhi Devi, to tell you an incident , in a quibble and comic way but with great diligence and a profound message.
As it happened last night , while returning home after a hectic day at my office, I found that there was no mini or micro cab available and being a middle class lady I didn't go for sedan/prime option . You know the protocol of the stereotype doesn't allow me to do so. As the "Chola cab Co." has also given a facility of cab sharing , so I thought ," Better if I take a share cab as it will save me some money". And mind you if you think of myself as a miser. I am not a miser , I am just kanjoos. The details of the driver was now visible on my unsmartphone. It displayed
Driver name: Mr. Seedha Ram
Contact no. : 9696969696
Vehicle info.: Nimbu colour
Massan BC_R model
NOT - 0420.
I was waiting for the cab and meanwhile was having a chit-chat with my company's gate keeper, Mr. Aalsi Kumar, who was usually very polite but can turn boorish if anybody dares to wake him up as he is very lethargic too. He can sleep for hours if he is not disturbed. When my cab arrived , I saw a girl of age not more than 25, sitting inside the cab . After telling the driver my drop location, I introduced myself to that young lady sitting beside me. "Miss Badmash Rani" as she told me her name was.
After few minutes when we started our journey, Miss Badmash Rani asked the driver, " Which route are you taking us through?". "This route is secluded and is not safe for us", she added looking to me. I told her," Look beti, the other route is very congested and it will take us about an hour more to reach our destination." "Also",I added,"that we are two ladies and in case something happens I am there and I will call the Police". But she didn't agree. Instead, when the driver tried to explain her, she started shouting, "Stop the car , Stop the caaaar ". Mr. Seedha Ram, out of fear, stopped the car then and there . She got out of the car and asked the driver also to come out."What do you think of yourself? You moron, you tried to get physical with me". And I thought physical, but when did that happen. Oh my God, she was creating trouble for that poor guy. Meanwhile, Mr. Seedha Ram was insisting,"What? What are you saying mam? ". He added, "Mam, Do you have any idea? I have a wife and two daughters. Can you please stop saying those things". Before I could have come out of the car and had explained that young lady , she shouted like anything and all the passer-by came closer to the driver and by hearing the lady shouting and crying they assumed that the driver was at fault . Without wasting any time they all started beating that poor guy whose only fault was to take another lane. I was trying to save the man. But as it seems , it is impossible to handle mob specially in our country and that too for cases like these. After putting lot of efforts, I somehow managed to get Mr. Seedha Ram out of that chaos. Till then Miss Badmash Rani had already informed to the police.
