commuting!!!!

During summer I didnt use my scooty and was travelling by bus.
Now I commute by my scooty enjoying the wind.
Ofcourse u will ask me about traffic and all that...
very true... traffic is the most horrible problem in hyderabad and the main thing being most of them are bulls!!!!!!!
I mean most of them dont care if the traffic signal is red or orange or green.
And most of the time I end up waiting at the signal till it becomes green and others get past away from me. Few of them honk so badly, I feel like shouting at them very loudly.

The best part of my journey is the stretch between Srinagar colony and Madhapur. The roads are pretty wide and one can drive aaraam se :D
The other day I was going home a bit early... a young lady wearing a short kurtha and pant stopped me near traffic signal.
"mam... can you plz give me lift?"
I was startled... becoz the way some scenes are shown in movies and TV were immediately on my mind... She might be a thief... some pros worker... etc etc
I looked at that girl once again... she looked pretty decent and poor.
And the best part being... she asked me lift in front of a police station... so she must be innocent :)
I stopped my scooty and asked her to sit behind.
she had to go to MLAs colony which I didnt know. I dropped her near jubilee hills check post.
She was very grateful and I am happy for being helpful.

The main idea behind writing this lift scene was... Help people... help needy... save petrol...
If u drive a 4-5 seater, 5Lakh car individually and all by yourself, u definitely get the comfort and happiness... but you are wasting enough petrol... implement the idea of car pooling.
Drop few colleagues on your way. You will get to know people and social network will increase.
You would be saving our country, world and natural resources. You will have a sense of responsibility and satisfaction. If your timings dont match, dont worry... send out a mail in your team asking if anyone is still around and take them with you!!!

I have already started it just by having two wheeler and hope you guys would definitely think about it!!!! I drop my sister everyday morning and give lift to my colleagues.

good work...me too occasionally give lift to strangers..they will thank me with a smile or a sigh of relief..I get extreme satisfaction from that..but at times I might be busy or might be going to a different destination...I feel bad when someone asks me for a help and I am unable to do it.
