Baap ki sadak hai!!!

19 Jun

I am trying to figure out here as to how mindlessly people claim the Indian roads as their… FATHERS! It is sabke baap ki sadak.. mere alava…

‘Walking on his fathers road, he indicates the cars and buses and autorickshaws to wait until he crosses the road, or just runs down it as a bus just misses to hit him. He is everywhere… and as he just misses to go to heaven(or hell.. depending on his karma) he turns around and says… something to do with the driver’s someone. 🙂


The season of Dussehra when people just fail to recognise that there exist vehicles that run on the road. No ! I am not talking about the Pooja Pandals. I am talking about the ubiquitous Baarats and Pandals for marriage purposes. Marriage season starts from Dussehra and lasts till March. Well, anyone can imagine that with 10 million people getting married every year (oh ok! that number is out of indepth understanding of a matrimony portal) half the India’s roads and most of the colony roads get blocked. Thankfully i don’t own a vehicle. The problem therefore for me is ‘how to get in to my house’. But another thing is that it is not just marriages…. it also includes various other occassions when people take the advantage of tax and reap returns in the name of their fathers.(thats how every body addresses them in such situations)


Well then the other case is about PARKING. Ok I dont know how to drive a car.. but I do understand the etiquettes of car parking. This is a plea to all those nimcompoops who think that it s their FATHERS road. Believe me our generation has paid more tax than your fathers.. it is as much yours and and as much ours.. So please respect traffic authorities and park only where you are allowed to.


And yes, how can I forget the fans of our very own angry young man- Amitabh Bachan. Well Indian’s have this untamed habit of following their heroes. And yes they do display their passion publicly.

“Leave your car in the midle of the road.(baap ki sadak hai!!!) Go Ahead. Fight for your rights against every other Indian who trespasses your car. Especially in the mornings when half of 1/6th of the world is driving to office. Which means that atleast some people will get to know that you are an aggressive angry young man. ”

To me it does not matter who’s mistake it was. All that matters that is I lose 15 mins of sleep everyday cos of India’s aggression on the road and the traffic jams that follow.

That is all. Subjectively!

    hmm… interesting but once you start driving then you’ ll realise… it is much WORSE!!!!
    what causes real menace are special occasions like strikes, dharnas blah blah… can’t for get the ‘torch day’… i felt that probably my car will not move forever. That moment i felt, why did I ever learn driving… maybe you are one of those fortunate ones “who don’tknow how to drive” … lucky you 😦

    Bah, utter blasphemy is how i will refer to your post. U r a non believer and it shows. I mean this traffic “menace” as you call it is a gift of god. This is a part of our rich culture and colorful history, this is what brings people together (in this age of internet and idiot box – that is a big achievement). This is what fascinates million of firangeez (if you have not noticed almost all strange and different pictures highlighting Indian culture are clicked by firangeez) and attracts them to visit India, bringing in loads of $$$ and inflating foreign reserve. And mind you, this firangi traffic creates thousands of jobs and raising the GDP of India.

    So sit back, close ur eyes and let ur thoughts wander. U will soon realize that all ur problems exist only in theory whereas in reality is traffic is a big boon to indian community and u should be a part of it. So go ahead, zip ur car around and remember the motto –

    Sharma ji has given an altogether different interpretation. I guess going by your logic, remaining a developing country would be far more beneficial for us…Being developed wouldn’t attract those elusive FIIs…Axe’s reply was hillarious…:D…Well I think these unruly drivers can’t be done away with…Specially the young blood of Delhi University college students (No offense to anybody)…I don’t want to sound like a grandpa but the daredevil stunts they try to come up with, inorder to impress I don’t know who, are really irritating…They are the ones really infected with the ‘Baap’ syndrome…Dhinchaak car stereos…And driving their 150ccs like some Hyabusa…It’s good to enjoy college life but showing it off in such a gross manner (according to me) is illogical…

    Hahaha…Driving a car has become difficult…If I can connect to Delhi audience here, they would have heard of Naraina…Every delhite has experienced the Narayana jam…One has to take a slack of 45-60 mins…And when you experience this it irritates you to such an extent that you start cursing the existence of transportation system…
