Deadly Delhi – Hate it but we all belong in here. Good n Bad.

A meet with a friend from Leh, Lhawang. I met him and we shared our stories as we were meeting after a long span of time. We met another friend with a little drink and some snacks to follow it. Soon we all left from Safdarjung Enclave where this other friend of ours live. We all started smooth, and on the way near IIT across the flyover, we found that there was a sudden Traffic Jam. It was not so long that I crossed a DTC(Delhi Transport Corporation) Bus, to find that there was a guy lying on road with eyes closed and senseless. The chaotic Delhi has no space for helping anyone.

Just that me and my friends stopped to see, that there were more bikers and scooterists who stopped and they guy is just lying in the middle of the road. Some ladies on the roadside who saw what happened, told that its the same bus, who was causing the Jam, hit this guy. Even he was wearing a Helmet, but it was not strapped. Finally, some more of us, pulled that chap to the Footpath and it seems that his breath was still intact. The bike was tossed but kept on side of the road by the crowd standing along. The Bus driver was smart to move out quickly and no one seem to be bothered about what happened in the Bus. Such a pity on this city and its people. We found one the Gypsy with Delhi Police written on it was passing by – who did not want to stop but as we shouted and made them stop. The two guys inside were just hesitant to help but finally, somehow we got to manage them to agree to take the Chap to the Hospital, and in that while, one person who was more ready to help made sure he goes along with him. We all waited to find his mobile which seems to have fallen down and split into three with the base of the phone not easily to be seen.

The Delhi Police arrived at the scene almost 20mins late and everyone seems to have had gone from the spot. Just a rough idea of things work in the city. The police useless to know anything but just took a note and disappeared. It was a shame at first but its a busy and devils disguise to deal with such people.The lady who saw it all and told us, said, you guys too are biker and it can happen to anyone. He must have had a family back home waiting for him and it was her right to shout and yell to help that stranger. I salute to this lady saying no doubt but this is bad, that so many people and just few to help !!

A lesson learned : ride anyway u like But I request you to make sure, you wear your helmet. Not just wear it, but strap it properly.
Helmets can be a life saviour.
