Dream Sequence : “And as the dacoits stood there counting their loot , came abbulu IPS (may God save the society :P) with his loyal battalion.Then the Sun came out and shone upon their well ironed khaki uniforms and the lions on their topis glittered like diamonds … “
It all started in 10th when I had this liking for action movies , esp. the ones where cops are involved.The Lethal Weapon series to be particular.From then on , wanted to be this IPS officer with a service gun,service vehicle and an adventurous life!! f course, strangely,shockingly wanted to do something for society (everyone’s pretty boiled up when they know nothing I guess)
Then ma used to say , “Orey chinna! Pillani evaru ivvaru ra ..” (no one’s gonna give their girl’s hand in marriage to a hot-shot IPS officer ) Well! Thats how mothers dealwith the whole thing … get marriage into the picture for a 10th standard lad who wants to become police!?!?! Then ma goes like ” Umesh chandra the famous hyderabadi police officer used to be the tiger,the this ,the that but got killed at just the age of 30 something leaving behind a 1-yr old son,a young wife …” Oh boy! Can anyone argue with moms when they do the senti thing ? But can’t say anything to that can I ? After all , love my mom 🙂
Then came dad into the scene , “You are preparing for IIT okay ? And getting a good job ! Thats what any studious student should aim for …they should aim high”Dad never overheard the conversation with mom.But I didn’t muster enough courage to tell him.Not because I was scared of dad’s authority,but was scared that I would slay his expectations!
Hey!Thats okay!An engineer’s life is not bad either!
But only if …
“.. the Sun came out and shone upon their well ironed khaki uniforms and the lions on their topis glittered like diamonds … “
ps : I don’t have the scene to become an IPS officer.So easy on the criticism please 🙂
