Honking vogue

Why do we InDiAnS love Honking while on roads??????

My project is going LIVE today and am in night shifts for next 3 days. need to be present for the escalations and meetings scheduled at their own convenience…..
No concern, since am mentally geared to twist my biological clock – anti clock wise and quash my routine until end of this week.
Tried hard to sleep in the noon, but in vain…..Kept dreaming about the fax, which I was expecting on behalf of DIL.
U can never sleep, when its running in your mind that your routine changes and you will be awake all night working~~~ after a gap of 3 yrs!

Back to my point on honking….Its still ringing in my head, keeping me awake and goaded; which was all I could notice(HEAR) ( especially today) while travelling to work in the evening..…

It was TRAFFIC and TRAFFIC all the way from home till Whitefield…
Now when you are in a jam or in a signal and every “INCH” is covered with vehicles, why is it few brainless uncivilised people HONK? Can’t you see, the vehicle in front of you can’t even move an inch?????? Grrrr…More…

There was a speed breaker in front of us, a two wheeler rider moved slowly, when my intolerant driver starts honking ( not once, but multiple times)…..C-R-A-Z-Y U; what can you achieve in those few secs? Its me who has to reach office, NOT YOU! Can’t you see a lady is sitting behind the rider with a small baby?? Grrr

The signal have to just hit Orange, when I hear series of honking which goes on and on…. can’t people have enough sense to see once the signal is Green, the vehicles in front of them will obviously MOVE? Two wheelers just try to use all the small gaps to just accelerate their vehicle; their only motto to move ahead, blind what’s alongside them…Why r these honk-infatuated people adding stress to their already stressed out day?

Am half asleep, as we make way through signals, traffic and honking….am really annoyed at what I saw for 2 hrs of my travel this evening. I assume its my sleep deprivation which added fuel to my frustration with all the noise since- I have always lived here, I have always seen this traffic, grew with this love for noise and still love this city! I just do not want to start my day with questions in my mind.

Please stop honking needlessly-Pointlessly-inanely….I have already shouted at all my drivers for doing this and am whacked and in VAIN! Phew!

Good news!!!!!
One of my acquisitive desire’s is soon going to be accomplished and am waiting for the DDay! Will share once confirmed…talk of saving and then end up spending-Learn from me!
~ See, I always have a nice things to write, after my cribbing~

Shouting at drivers doesn't help. Our driver is no good compared to yours. I think they all need some rehabilitation for few days. Unfortunately, neither those drivers can afford to take leave nor we can grant. Some time back we had a horrible driver and I convinced him from continuous honking to hardly honking person.. for my bad he was shifted to a different route soon after that. Now I need to start my lessons all over again!

On the lighter side, they honk to ensure that the other drivers don't sleep waiting for ages together for that RED to go GREEN :)

Stress-Busters may be - Honking ?
I think we should display behind the vehicle - Are you in stress ?
If not, stop honking.

Honking is necessary in India because you can't shout in the crowd. :))))
