I was driving on the way back from office today when i noticed one Indian couple was travelling together. They were riding a bike and so i was following behind their back. When i was about to overtake them, i noticed a small figure was squeezed in between the couple. To my utter disgust, it was their child.
This is not the first time that I’ve seen this kind of couples riding in a bike . I’ve seen one whole Indian family riding in a bike all squeezed up. Although my sense of pity for the children is very high, i couldnt bare the fact that their father or the guardian of the children is bringing their child in such a manner.
The usual co -ordination of the ‘Indian family travelling together in a bike’:
Coordination 1 : Father – Child – Mother
Coordination 2 : Children – Father – Children – Mother
Coordination 3 : Children – Father – Children – Children – Mother
Coordination 4 : Children – Father – Mother carrying a baby.
I’ve seen on my eyes long time back the above mentioned Coordination 3. This is really a shock. 5 person on a motorcycle? Enna kodumeh saravanan ithe? I hardly travel with 5 person in my car even. Now here , Indian people are changing the world of motorcycle riding by travelling with up to 3 family members.
Sometimes, i do pity them. Maybe they can’t afford for a car. If you don’t have a car, then try to get one. If you cant get a car, then stop all your projects at night with your wife. Be responsible or use ‘rubber’. Do not go wasting getting so many children when you can’t even afford to bring them up. What is the use of having so many children when they have to live in such a manner? We’re not living in the 60′s era my brothers where children’s in one family itself can easily fit up one classroom. Now, we’ve to plan our way of living. Chumma pethe pothe enapa iruke. Nambeh anthe marri seye mathom, atheke than vere jathi irukanegeleh.:P
When i see the Indian ladies riding in a bike with their husband, i can sometimes sense the hard life they’re going through. Their eyes shows clearly. Now, not only you’re endangering yourself by travelling in a bike with your whole family, but you’re dangering your children’s life too. What if there is an accident? What will happen to the children?
It’s too late to regret later. Before you get married, get yourself a car . Do not go wasting your sperm all over the place when you can’t afford a car. Upgrade your life. If you’re single, then it’s all ok. But when you get married,remember that travelling up with the whole family in a bike is a definete no- no. I’ve never seen any Chinese and Malay’s travelling the way we’re doing. In a way, we’ve revolutionised the way people were travelling. I wouldnt have a big suprise if you place up a long strong plywood in the extension of your motorbike seat and start travelling with as much as people you can put up in a van.God only knows.
