PoLiCe StOrY...



Sunday morning and as usual we had booked a ticket in Sathyam Cinemas so Gokul and me were off for it. We started for the movie Veerasamy, but unfortunately T Rajendar movies had so much graphics and was taken in iMax cameras and 3D that Sathyam's theatre was not compatible and was not put up there. So we had to console ourself with another tormentor in Tamil cinema - Ilaya Mokaipathy Vijay. As Mr.Gokul had crashed my heavy duty bike to a lamp post previous night ( thinking it was a beautiful damsel and trying to impress her) , We had to steal my friend Cyril's bike key whilst he was snoring.

As we set out on the busy Mount Road , we both were excellent bikers and so just to prove to Gokul am better of him i went racing thru all the bends GP style until i realised i had zoomed past the red light, and did'nt realise chennai cops were so quick to react...a mama (cop) who was having his coconut in the shade jumped onto the road spreading his hands and started jumping left and right( it was so much of a funny sight) to stop us. So I had to pull over and immediately he took the keys. Following is the conversation...

Cop : Did you see the signal?

Me : Yes anna(bro)...(shit i shud hav called him mama at least)

Cop : Anna? are yu mad? why did yu ride past the signal?

Me : Sorry, Sir... ( i got sweaty) As i am suffering from fever, please could you....

Cop : Stupid! Am i your class teacher? Padichavan thane nee?( Are'nt you guys educated? )

Gokul : Sir, yes we got the Driving License education and only then got the license. ( apparently intelligent Gokul thought if the cop's asking abt the License exam)

Cop and Me stare at Gokul...

Cop : Idiot, am asking if you are literate enough to study the traffic signs!! Anyways do you have the papers?

We both in chorus(pointing each other) : He has ! and then we look dumbfounded as we forgot to get it from Cyril..

Cop : Well now that adds up the crime, pay up and leave..( in his hand he shows 2..meaning 200 bucks)

Gokul : Sir, i have seen the rules in the internet, we have to pay up a fine of only 400 for this innocent offence.

Cop : So , yu guys know the rules eh? fine then pay up 1000rs and then as today is Sunday no mobile court, collect your vehicle tomorrow..thats for talking rules to me!

Me to Gokul : " Great you Moron...see what you have done now..." , After much pleading, the cop would'nt agree and we had to pay the fine...which we did not have so we called up the bike owner Cyril to come over.... he obviously was fuming and came in another bike and brilliantly without a helmet.. Now as we gave the money to the Cop

Cop to Cyril : Well, Well..where is your helmet..?

We all stare at each other....

Cop : Pay up all the fine and leave before i dig out your criminal records...

We had to pay up finally 1500rs of fine as we sped the signal, no papers and no helmet!!! Lousy day indeed!!

blunt edges said...

heavy fine indeed dude...can kinda picturize the situation when cyril came without the helmet!!! :D

why r police stories fun only in hindsight? ;) even i had talked about one a long time ago!

Archana said...

Lol, cops make me laugh. Especially the money hungry ones. It's funny when I used to live in Indonesia, everyone would bend the traffic rules like crazy, and if & when they got caught, would just pay money to the officer and he'd let whatever black mark/penalty on your license slide. :P

The only cops I've come face to face to where ones that stopped by my college apartment due to a noise complaint, lol. Oops. We just smiled and explained the situation and promised we'd turn the music off, and he was like.."hmm okkay, not a problem miss". Ah, the benefits of being a woman. :P

HaRy!! said...

~Hey Ekta...yeah bad cop day indeeed!

HaRy!! said...

~Blunt...yep :)! i agree with yu..they are always fun in the hindsight ..whazz yur story?

HaRy!! said...

~Hey Arch.. how long have yu been in India? Well yu'd know the benifits of being a woman more than anywhere else here.., sometime the cops just go blunt and glee at women riders whereas we get charged for a silly mistake !! try driving in Mount road and soukarpet in Chennai..yu'll know wat i mean!..ha ha cya around tc

Santulan said...

umm.. was he wearing a helmet himself? you could have taken a picture for the heck of it you know.. ya know i have always wanted to ride on the road wearing the empty half of a watermelon as a helmet.. once i learn how to ride a bike that is.. the last time i tried one guy had to get bandages and two bikes needed a mechanic.. wonder why people won't let me try.. :P

oh and out of curiosity, how did you happen to come by my page?

Archana said...

I've never lived in India, was just born there. But I visit all the time, and every single time that I have visited, India never ceases to remind me that the red carpet is always rolled out for women, lol. It's a little bit concerning sometimes. :P
