Was in delhi for a week (Sasuraal ;-) ).
Thank you for the warm welcome guys.
Today morning on the way to my office, I was stuck in a traffic jam at Shoppers Stop, Hyderabad. My car was still and I mean literally still ("0" in odo) and suddenly, I heard a sound and felt a little movement in the car.
First I thought it was the bass effect from my music system; then later realized my music system didn't have a sub-woofer, ooppss.
I thought it was a mild earthquake (There was one few weeks back in a small city of AP). I looked back if there was a wave of water coming toward me (as in the movie "Day After Tomorrow" or "2012").
Later I realized that an Auto Rickshaw brushed my brand new, one month old car, and left.
I didn't know what to do. Should I get down, hit him
and get some money and then spoil my mood or should I let him go and later check what the damage was
? At last, I maintained my cool as the damage was done (I didn't have any other option either)
I turned on my indicator, took my baby into shoppers stop parking. Pumped the brakes, car came to a halt.
My heart was pumping 1000 times more blood into my veins, my face was red, I started hating all the Auto Rickshaw guys. I didn't want to look what the damage was!
Then slowly I bent down to see that there was a small scratch and a small patch of paint got scratched!!!!
With a sad mood :-(, started again. Went to the office, called my colleagues and showed them what happened, went home and showed it to my family. I got my car from servicing only yesterday evening :-(, first service.
