Laugh it out … 19

In the golden days of cyclying liesurly to work, it was an offence to ride the cycle without headlamps after dusk and policemen used to take people to task.

Ramu had gone to drop the tiffen carrier to vani vilas hospital for his neighbour, who was expecting a kid anytime on his hired cycle for 25ps and it got late and was furiously found pedelling near Lalbagh west gate when a constable stopped him.

CONstable: Yeno… light yello badava?

Ramu :(Struggling for breath) Sir… ishtondu belaku innu irovaga light yake sahebre? [When there is so much light still around; why do we need a lamp?]

CONstable: Houdenu?

He proceeds to deflate the cycle tyres despite ramu’s resistance.

CONstable: Ishtondu gali horgade irovaga; tubenalli yako badava? [When there is so much air around us, why do you need it still in your tubes?]

    Well, generally I like your Laugh out Loud posts but this one.

    I don’t find it funny, rather atrocious on part of that constable. As a responsible constable on duty, that behaviour was not expected of him.

  3. Cuckoo,
    In fact this is a fact that most cyclysts had to contend with in 70’s and early 80’s. We have replaced that scenario with a bike and its rider minus his helmet.

    Praneshachar,
    Not to mention all the curses while pushing the cycle back home to that CONstable.
