girl-on-bike.jpgHere’s a photograph I snapped whilst at a traffic signal. At first I found it really funny that the girl had her head down, but then the horror of the situation set in very quickly. I’m sad that our families are used to this “nap on a bike”… Tired from school, unable to rest at home because of frequent power cuts (I refuse to refer to them as loadshedding, because I have no idea what load they are shedding anymore!), this is what everyday life has become.

    Good post.

    When I was in ISB couple of weeks back, I never saw 5 to 6 family member on one bike. The most important thing that took my attention was that if a child is riding along on a bike he / she was tied to the driver with whatever possible.

    Since then it takes my breath away to see the cute babies / children riding on the bike tank who hold and support themselves bu holding the bike handle from middle. It always brings a smile to my face when I look at the cute child, but the next second it brings a scowl of worry to even think about the consequences of a mishap.

    We need cheap Tata cars from India, or some cheap locally manufactured car even if it does not have all the bells and seeTees, power this power that, but even a very flimsy car will be safer than motorbykes. Last time I rode on a motor bike was from Khayaam Cinema to the American Center Library. voh din, aur aaj kaa din….never rode on a motor bike.

    This also shows the soft nature of Karachitte. We can sleep anywhere and we are not high maintenance. Good pic rgarib.
