One for the road... or maybe not

8th October 2010

I was visiting Mira's sister in Parvanoo and quite close to their home, I saw this truck carrying pipes that had fallen in a ditch. To make it worse, it fell on a hut killing a woman and her two daughters and the husband ending up in the hospital. Speculation is one of the most popular sports in India and everyone who saw this was an eager participant with most of them concluding the driver was drunk. I don't know the truth, however as a model citizen, I too will indulge in our national sport and I also feel the driver was high on at least cough syrup if not rum.

Later I was told that a neighbor of my sister-in-law has a couple of recovery vans and he does a brisk business during the holiday season. His phone is ringing off the hook during winters when a lot of people from plains go to hills and quite incorrectly assume they are above average drivers, even on hills.
