The MUMBAIkar saga: Episode 10 – ‘Owner’s pride driver’s ride’

Its a peculiar phenomenon , this theatre called Mumbai traffic and its many actors .

Consider this event, that happened in two seperate parts:

Day1

So our nice little protagonist bought a new SUV and was driving in the evening on the Shivaji Park road. A tad too many times, excessive driving caution (in this case, due to driving his new car for the first time)  might lead to traffic guffaws too, as opposed to the general case of rash driving. So he almost bumped into a Karizma guy at the traffic lights. The biker bellowed these words,

‘Abey tum madar chod ameer aadmi log gaadi mat chalao!  Tum owner ho to driver mat ban.Driver ko rakh lo madar chod! (translation: ‘ You rich m****r f****rs should not drive. just becasue you are owner doesnt make you a driver. So get a driver !)

Now our protagonist is a sensitive chap. So he took the words to heart and got a driver. The next day…

Day 2

The driver almost bumped into the karizma guy on shivaji park road . The biker once again bellowed,

‘tum madar chod bhikari driver  log gaadi mat chalao! Baap ka gaadi hain kya. Tum sirf ek driver ho owner nahin.Owner behen chod ko chalane do’

(translation: You m****r f****in beggar-drivers! This is not your car. You are just a driver not the owner.Let the s****r f***in owner drive..’ )

amusingly paradoxial 🙂

The last thought

Aha ! This post is technically (but not in spirit) a sequel to the last post.

Because this was the topic I actually wanted to write on when I pulled myself out of bed a few days ago. But I however ended up writing something which is different …. Anyway before I once again digress, I shall get to the point ….

What would be my most prominent last thought when I am about to die ?  By using the word prominent , I allude to emphasize on significant thoughts .That don’t come and go in a  flash, but last for a substantial amount of time ,say, for at least the last 10 seconds. Lingering , disturbing , apparently non frivolous thoughts !!

I figure that I would just think about all the things I could have done in life if I was not dying. For example,

  1. Learn how to play the guitar ( the foolproof girl-swooning-induction factor 😉 )
  2. Learn French (another girl-swooning-induction factor.  )
  3. Learn drums (macho ! very macho ! )
  4. Learn salsa, learn kuchipudi and fuse them both to create a new dance form (that will help people with digestion problems !)
  5. Read and completely understand Tolstoy’s ‘war and peace’
  6. Work towards world peace
  7. Serve  an enriching service oriented term in the UN
  8. Finish Freud’s ‘Interpretation of dreams
  9. Direct a slasher flick called ‘dreams and screams’
  10. Master the ‘art of war‘ ,Sun Tzu style
  11. Master Rajni ‘s acting style
  12. Learn martial arts and hand to hand combat from Vladmir Putin
  13. Call and apologize to all ex gfs  (if I have any, by then ! :p)
  14. Buy a mercedes or at least steal one
  15. Play Buzkashi in Afghanistan
  16. Fight for rights of street dogs

and things like that…..

And then again , I cease to think whether I would really be thinking all these …… ???

Nopes! On second thoughts I would just be thinking one of the below :

  1. Shit
  2. F***
  3. That batch mate of mine is still earning more :p
  4. Oh no
  5. There is still the last piece of chicken left in the fridge
  6. shit
  7. f**k

well ! Thats it ….
