Driving Tips for Indian Roads

Driving in India - Some Tips

For the benefit of every one visiting India and daring to drive on Indian roads, here are few hints for survival. They are applicable in every place in India except Bihar, where life outside a vehicle is only marginally safer.

Indian road rules broadly operate within the domain of karma where you do your best, and leave the results to your insurance company which will settle all your claims by your next rebirth.

The hints are as follows:

Do we drive on the left or right hand side of the road?

The answer is "both". Basically one starts on the left of the road, unless it is occupied. In which case, go to the right, unless that is also occupied. Then proceed by occupying the next available gap, as in chess.
Just trust your instincts, ascertain the direction, and proceed. Adherence to road rules leads to much misery and occasional fatality. Most drivers don't drive, but just aim their vehicles in the intended direction. Don't you get discouraged or underestimate yourself except for a belief in reincarnation, the other drivers are not in any better position.

Don't stop at pedestrian crossings just because some fool wants to cross the road. You may do so only if you enjoy being bumped in the back. Pedestrians have been strictly instructed to cross only when traffic is moving slowly or has come to a dead stop because some minister is in town. Still some idiot may try to wade across, but then, let us not talk ill of the dead.

Blowing your horn is not a sign of protest as in some countries. We horn to express joy, resentment, frustration, romance and bare lust (two brisk blasts), or, just mobilize a dozing cow in the middle of the bazaar. Sometimes honking in a no sound zone like a hospital can restart an arrested heart or cause a heart attack, anyways things even out.

Keep informative books in the glove compartment. You may read them during traffic jams, while awaiting the chief minister's motorcade, or waiting for the rainwaters to recede when over ground traffic meets underground drainage.

Occasionally you might see what looks like a UFO with blinking colored lights and weird sounds emanating from within. This is an illuminated bus, full of happy pilgrims singing bhajans. These pilgrims go at breakneck speed, seeking contact with the Almighty,often meeting with success.

Auto Rickshaw (Baby Taxi): This triangular vehicle carries iron rods, gas cylinders or passengers three times its weight and dimension, at an unspecified fare.
After careful geometric calculations, children are folded and packed into these auto rickshaws until some children in the periphery are not in contact with the vehicle at all. Then their school bags are pushed into the microscopic gaps all round so those minor collisions with other vehicles on the road cause no permanent damage. Of course, the peripheral children are charged half the fare and also learn Newton's laws of motion en route to school.
Auto-rickshaw drivers follow the road rules depicted in the film Ben Hur, and are licensed to irritate.

Mopeds: The moped looks like an oil tin on wheels and makes noise like an electric shaver. It runs 30 miles on a teaspoon of petrol and travels at break-bottom speed. As the sides of the road are too rough for a ride, the moped drivers tend to drive in the middle of the road; they would rather drive under heavier vehicles instead of around them and are often "mopped" off the tarmac.

Leaning Tower of Passes: Most bus passengers are given free passes and during rush hours, there is absolute mayhem. There are passengers hanging off other passengers, who in turn hang off the railings and the overloaded bus leans dangerously, defying laws of gravity but obeying laws of surface tension. As drivers get paid for overload (so many Rupees per kg of passenger), no questions are ever asked. Steer clear of these buses by a width of three passengers.

One-way Street: These boards are put up by traffic people to add jest in their otherwise drab lives. Don't stick to the literal meaning and proceed in one direction. In metaphysical terms, it means that you cannot proceed in two directions at once. So drive, as you like, in reverse throughout, if you are the fussy type. Least I sound hypercritical; I must add a positive point also.

Speed Breakers: Rash and fast driving in residential areas has been prevented by providing a "speed breaker"; two for each house. This mound, incidentally, covers the water and drainage pipes for that residence and is left untarred for easy identification by the corporation authorities, should they want to recover the pipe for year-end accounting.

Night driving on Indian roads can be an exhilarating experience (for those with the mental makeup of Chenghis Khan). In a way, it is like playing Russian roulette, because you do not know who amongst the drivers is loaded.
What looks like premature dawn on the horizon turns out to be a truck attempting a speed record. On encountering it, just pull partly into the field adjoining the road until the phenomenon passes. Our roads do not have shoulders, but occasional boulders.

Do not blink your lights expecting reciprocation. The only dim thing in the truck is the driver, and with the peg of illicit arrack (alcohol) he has had at the last stop, his total cerebral functions add up to little more than a naught.
Truck drivers are the James Bonds of India, and are licensed to kill. Often you may encounter a single powerful beam of light about six feet above the ground. This is not a super motorbike, but a truck approaching you with a single light on, usually the left one. It could be the right one, but never get too close to investigate. You may prove your point posthumously. Of course, all this occurs at night, on the trunk roads.
During the daytime, trucks are more visible, except that the drivers will never show any Signal. (And you must watch for the absent signals; they are the greater threat). Only, you will often observe that the cleaner who sits next to the driver, will project his hand and wave hysterically.

This is definitely not to be construed as a signal for a left turn. The waving is just a statement of physical relief on a hot day.

If, after all this, you still want to drive in India, have your lessons between 8 pm and 11 am-when the police have gone home and The citizen is then free to enjoy the 'FREEDOM OF SPEED' enshrined in our constitution.

Having said all this, isn't it true that the accident rate and related deaths are less in India compared to US or other countries!!?

Premarital sex or Live in relationships no offence-Supreme Court

In a slap in the face of so called moralists of the society the Supreme Court of India ruled that pre marital sex and Live in relationships constituted no offence.

“When two adults want to live together, what is the offence? Does it amount to an offence? Living together is not an offence. It cannot be an offence,” Chief Justice of India K.G. Balakrishnan, heading a three-judge bench, said, hearing petitions against Tamil actress Khusboo. The actress had said in a magazine that pre-marital sex was fine. ( I think the complainants were sore since she did not have designs on them).

Even Lord Krishna and Radha lived together according to mythology, the judges pointed out, adding no law prohibited either pre-marital sex or live-in relationships. “Please tell us what is the offence and under which section? Living together is part of right to life given in the Constitution,” the bench said.

The argument of the counsel was that her comments allegedly endorsing pre-marital sex would adversely affect the minds of young people leading to decay in moral values and country's ethos.

"Please tell us what is the offence and under which section. Living together is a right to life," the apex court said apparently referring to Article 21 which granted Right to Life and Liberty as a Fundamental Right.

The apex court further said the views expressed by Ms. Khusboo were personal.

"How does it concern you? We are not bothered. At the most it is a personal view. How is it an offence? Under which provision of the law?" the bench asked the counsel.

The apex court further asked the complainants to produce evidence to show if any girls eloped from their homes after the said interview.

"How many homes have been affected can you tell us," the Bench asked while enquiring whether the complainants had daughters. When the response was in the negative, they shot back, "Then, how are you adversely affected?"

The judges said activities perceived to be immoral by sections of society could not be branded an “offence”, trying to make a distinction between the two concepts.

Ms. Khusboo had approached the apex court after the Madras High Court in 2008 dismissed her plea for quashing the criminal cases filed against her throughout Tamil Nadu.

Actress Ranjitha and Swami Nityanand clarify

In an interview to a TV channel in Haridwar on Saturday Swami Nithyananda Paramahamsa claimed that he was in a trance when the sleaze video was being recorded. He neither denied nor confirmed that it was him on the tape.

Tamil actress Ranjitha, who went into hiding after being caught on camera while indulging in sexual acts with Swami Nityananda, finally come to fore too. Clearing her stand, she justified her acts by saying that she was just giving her offerings (some offerings man) to the god man.

The 33-year-old god man said he was ''in a state of samadhi (trance)'' when the video, showing him in a compromising position with an actress, was taken. (Man i would be in a trance too if an actress was friggin me). He said, the video has been ''misinterpreted, morphed and manipulated.'' He alleged that the media onslaught on him was without any basis and that he was being held guilty without a trial.

Transcript of the interview: Was that you in the sleaze tape?

There's a lot of misinterpretation, manipulation and morphing. Now, we are working to find out which part was recorded and which was manipulated. When that video was taken, I was in a state of trance. My personal life has been misrepresented and my privacy has been invaded. Media has even taken pictures of me when I am changing my clothes after a bath. This has been done to defame me.

It is being said that the tape was taken in December 2009? Were you sick then?

I was sick for a very long time. Consciously, I was in a samadhi... physically I was not well. Some of the things have been misinterpreted by the onlookers. Or rather it has been misinterpreted by those who wanted to do it.

Has life changed for you in the last two weeks?

In the thirty-three years of my life I have seen fame. I was the most watched guru on YouTube. Now, in the last few days I have been the most watched scandal. Both have taught me many things about life. But what shocked me most is the thought that there is so much enmity against me. The good thing from all this is I am getting millions of emails, phone calls and a flood of support from people who are not even my devotees. My disciples are feeling so bad that someone's private life has been misinterpreted and abused.
Was the actress in your ashram then?

She has been serving me for a very long time. She was volunteering to take care of me when I was sick. All her family members have been my devotees. There is no denying that she is a devotee.

Do you think it's because of stand-off with people in power?

I don't have any political ambition. I did not fight with anybody. I don't want to disrespect anyone.

Good luck swamiji. May you find your foothold, ashram, nirvana and the actress again. OM!

Swami Nityananda’s sex scandal video

After Kalki Bhagavan’s scam, Swami Nityananda’s sex scandal video has surfaced shaking the devotees faith in the religious leaders and god-men, who are treated equivalent to gods by followers. Don't make me say I told you so, but I did tell you bozos so!

The video shows Swami Nityananda and two actress Ranjitha and Ragasudha (The actresses name seems to have been added to make the news spicey, there is no confirmation on this) which are supposed to be parts of sex scandals by the Nityananda.

A video showing swamiji (we still like to add ji suffix to the name of the fun loving exalted swami as it might hurt the sentiments of fun loving people) in compromising position (compromising is putting it lightly, swami was having fun dude) with a popular Tamil actress was released by Sun News on Tuesday, Mar 2, leading to violence at the Swamiji’s ashrams.

There is doubt about the man in the video is Swami Nityanand but there is speculation as to the identity of the woman in the video. While some speculate that the actress in the video is Ragasudha, others suggest that the woman is Tamil actress Ranjita.

The video, which came as a massive shock to the godman’s followers (because he was having all the fun alone. While he made them just sit and meditate he got masturbated), has led to widespread protests (understandable when one person has all the goodies). In Coimbatore, angry followers took to streets and vandalised property,the Swami’s Ashram in Bidadi is also seeing similar scenes.

Paramahamsa Nithyananda is (WAS) a spiritual guru. He was born on January 1, 1978 in Tamil Nadu, India. He is the founder of Dhyanapeetam, a worldwide movement. The foundation has its headquarters in Bengaluru (Bangalore),India.

In 2007, he was elected chairman of the Hindu University of America, also known as the International Vedic Hindu University, an institution in the U.S. state of Florida. I wonder if they will sack him now or hire a new chairman.

Life Bliss Foundation is Nithyananda's movement (although the video shows swami enjoyed other kind of movements as well). Established in 2003, it now consists of over 1000 centers in 33 different countries. The foundation also owns Nithyananda Meditation Academies (NMAs) worldwide.

For all those looking for spiritual enlightenment I can only suggest the following: Do not follow Swami's and Godmen, Dude become a Swami or godman and con people and make money and generally have a good time.

Kalki Bhagavan and Amma Bhagawan Fraud

The gods in heaven must be smiling at the leela of their avatar's on planet earth but the followers of these self proclaimed swamis are not a happy lot. In fact most of them have got that sheepish look on their faces.

Down south the Telugu News Channel are tripping over one another exposing the so called divine swamis. First one off the blocks is Kalki Bhagavan scam or Kalki Bhagavan and Amma Bhagawan Fraud.

TV9 has aired live programs in which Vijay Kumar Naidu alias Kalki Bhagavan and Amma Bhagawan are being targeted. The allegations of land grabbing, drugs, sexual escapades are making strong rounds in the ashram.

Sri Kalki Bhagavan alias Vijay Kumar was born in Arcot district, Tamil Nadu, and at various times has also used names such as Mukteshwarand Sri Bhagavan.

Bhagavan and Amma claim to be two divine beings, or Avatars. They reside at Golden City, near Chennai, in India. Their stated mission is to bring all of humanity into the Golden Age. (They had made a good start by reaching the golden state of living by fleecing people themselves)

They claim that they will fully enlighten 64,000 people in the world. These people in a highly enlightened state of communion would transform the rest of the humanity by 2012. (Talk about chain reaction and pyramid marketing. I thought that was illegal, but who cares!)

According to them, this state of enlightenment is offered to seekers through a process known as deeksha (in other words open your wallet dumbos), which is a transfer of divine energy ( to the devotee and money to the bhagwan... fair transfer) that is said to be so powerful it has the ability to break through the concepts and conditioning of our mind .

According to an ex-devotee for the darshan of Amma’s padam the devotees pay 5000 Rupees and for Special Darshan 25,000 Rupees, They took 60,000 Rupees from each devotee for Homam. ( you can touch my feet for free if you can bear the smell and I too have god in me or so I was

And for Foreigners (ah! how could they forget the cash cows of foreign lands who are looking for nirvana) they have 21 days package. And each devotee should pay entry fees. With the name of Amma Pooja the Kalki trust collected 240 Crores. Kalki trust is running 9 businesses, one of them is Real Estate which is running by Bhagvan’s son he earned nearly 3,000 crores with the company.

Another swami scam to follow soon. Keep up dudes.
