Moron at keyboard

The FM radios called for boycotting the use of Hosur road and Inner ring road yday due to the heavy traffic caused by incessant rain. But still one guy thinking all these are funny and fake report kick-starts his bullet(bike?!) towards Bommanahalli in Hosur road. Not even he reached any close to Inner ring road and the traffic started to break his neck. He tries all stunts dodging the fellow riders and tries to move forward. He tries hard. Really hard. He even takes his bike on the pedestrian platform which he normally hates to do and calls it as unruly and unethical behaviour by a two-wheeler rider. He breaks rules. He breaks more rules by jumping red light too thinking it is OK to ease the traffic atleast. There waits a big traffic jam which is not even in its knees and crawling but worse than that. Its a stand still traffic. And even if the traffic moves it doesn't move more than a yard before it again stops for the lights. More irritating is the rain which stings as sharp needle against his neck. He gets all cumbersome with the rain water flowing all over his body. Its a big mess out there and the Inner ring road is in floods. Oh God, This is what happens when it rains in bangalore. Does anyone need a reason to hate bangalore? If yes just take this one. But I didn't need one anymore. I got the reasons long back. Its called traffic, pollution, dust and suspended particles in air.

Hmmm.. I am off the topic. Now coming back. The guy still doesn't feel like turning back. For one reason there is no way of turning back and the other reason he gotta see some one in Bommanahalli the very same day. The more it rains and more water seeps through his body and more and more water get into his shoes irritating him from legs to head. Fortunately he wore his helmet and a jacket which gave him some protection against the lashing rain. Once he hit the sarjapur juntion the traffic vanished like magic and he could reach the destination in no time from there. Thatz bangalore for you and everyone.

Just before he ventured out on his fun ride, he got a warning call from his new room-mate who was having his first day trip in bus from Electronic city that he is stuck near koramangala for more than one hour. The friend incidentally started from Electronic city at 5.30 pm and reached home at 8.10 pm. Comparing to this travel our guy didn't even suffered 25% but travelling in a bus is quite ok than to get stuck in a bike in rains.

And as you all guessed I am that moron. The moron at keyboard and Abru that should justify the picture as its a small thing everyone experiences in his life one time or the other but I make a big thing out of it and wrote a post with a keyboard.
