Woman on the Road

pree2.jpgI am not even sure if the editor of this magazine is going to publish this post of mine. Since you are reading this now, she probably did 😉 I once saw her facebook status which said, “Honking will not help your vehicle fly. Please stop honking." And that’s the topic of this post. Considering the aggressive overtones this post is going to take, I have my doubts whether it is in her good tastes, you see!

So, I have been driving for two years in Bangalore, and whether you agree or not, I consider that a personal achievement.

My first lesson in driving in Bangalore from veteran drivers was to understand the behaviour of people on road. So, basically, I needed to know that there are Bus Drivers, Lorry Drivers, Cab drivers, Van Drivers, L Board Drivers, New/Expensive car drivers. Bikers… how can I forget bikers? And most of all, they said, I need to be aware of how they would see me – as a woman driver.
