Beginning the new year with a BANG
Well, each of you must have had a rather fun filled arrival into the new year. Me too had something similar, just underlining the fact that the bang was with a pedestrian who did not know how to cross the street. I picked up my friend from her place just a few moments back. And then we were on our way to do some birthday shopping. On the way in a complete 90 degree turn, i went and crashed into a guy. And then his hand was run over by a car tyre. They pulled the car back. And i was in my full fury. The guy was shouting at me, as if he did not know to cross at such interjunctions and that too when cars were moving from three different directions. But being as i am, i took him immediately to the hospital, dressed his wounds, gave him injection and even took him out for a drink. And also took him back to his place. the guy was not able to argue with me after this. I think he understood his mistake, and said, "Thank you", while i dropped him at his place. Sometimes i think this world is not completely lost of humanity. But there were his friends waiting for him at his place. I told them that everything was solved between us, and the guy himself restrained them from coming towards me. And then i sped of, knowing of one fact - i was actually hurt, and if i did not lie with my head tilted upwards, my nose would surely start bleeding. And here i am at my office, sitting before writing this live news staring up at the ceiling for almost an hour. So, folks, crackers did not do it for me, a broken nose, a show of respect and some birthday shopping still pending creates my new year start.
