You may feel with 75,000 KMs + of ride experience you may not need a gentle reminder with a heading that says 'Ride Basics'. However, the fact is, you need. Everyone needs. .
7 years back my friend went to inquire about an MBA program. While coming out of the institution, a person offered him lift till the Auto stand for just under 1 Km distance. As they reached the intersection, they were hit by a fast moving truck. The girl died on the spot. She was going to become Indian Airforce Pilot just three days later. She had gone to college to collect her degree documents. My friend got serious injured and went into comma. Fortunately, he came out of comma after few weeks, but had to be on bed rest for next 5 years. Today, he is on verge of completing the distance MBA but had to write with his right arm as his left arm has no more the strength to hold a pen. Debate will always be on, that who was on fault. The fact is they were having two helmets and none of them was wearing one. .
While it is easier for me to pen down a post here, there is no denying that there may be no reason for everyone around to race to their workplaces/college every morning when getting up 5 minutes early and planning better is a simple solution; when changing lanes is not governed by principle of space; when you start realizing that highways are no race tracks; when you start respecting others on roads. .
I am travelling to #Chopta (Uttrakhand), #Chennai, #Hyderabad, #Jaipur and may be #Kashmir and along with my Travel Diaries, I will surely request people I meet to follow the three things written on the photo. Will you also do the same ? Do you also pledge to slow down when speeding is not required? Will you start riding in true #spirit ? .
