After i bought my car 2yrs back, a ford ikon, I had never driven a car on jam packed Pune roads during office hours. I used to drive my Dad's car in colony which has nil traffic.
I thought of having driving lessons but that morning when i prepared to goto office, it was raining so i thought of giving it a try. My wife was my navigator, and we planned to follow any car which is going towards our office. We did that and reached office which had a long queue of car and its a slope
. I had no exprience of driving upwards in a bumper to bumper situation. so i applied handbrake when stopped.. when my turn came, I released the hand brake and accelerated.. it was nasty and very away from being smooth..
I tried this (following other cars) for 1-2 week and then I was comfortable. Drive patiently and sensibly. Avoid thinking too much while driving..
