After completion of my M. B. B. S. from a recognised college I Got a job in Govt. Hospital as a Junior Resident.
Under tremendous pressure from family to get married, I went to meet a girl under the arranged marriage system of India. After meeting, the girl rejected me upfront because she didn’t like my Job. I was furious and told her " Just wait and see after 5 years where this job is going to take me. You will be sorry". Of course, I moved on and got married to another girl a year later.
After 5 years,
I saw the same beautiful lady at a traffic signal with her husband in a brand new Audi. And I was trying to kick start my Activa because the battery start was not working. She looks out of the car and briefly looks at me but without any hint of recognition due to HELMET, and moves her eyes away!
At that moment, after driving a two wheeler for over 5 years, first time in my life I realized the value of a helmet.
So always wear a helmet in your own safety!
