Came across this incident while returning from the university.
A car wala was holding an autowala’s shirt by collar and shouting. I reached just near the spot and had to halt since the jhagda was going right at the signal.I,like others,looked at the scene and tried to figure out what’s exactly happening. Within seconds I realised that the auto wala was taking a left turn and as per him he gave the indicator but the car wala missed it and since both of these guys were in pretty slow speed they hit each other but thankfully it didn’t turn out to be an accident and nobody was hurt at all-so it seemed !
But then what was the fight all about ? The car wala was accusing the auto wala for not giving indicator and for the tiny scratch that his car had ! Sigh…in all this jhagda the car wala tore auto wala’s shirt-since he was pulling him towards him and was holding his collar…
From what all I saw and understood, I really felt the car wala was wrong in this case since it was not a big dent to fight for and specially when the auto wala was behaving and constantly saying “saab maine indicator diya tha..” ..
I have seen auto wala’s ganging and fighting and talking in ill language too with these car wala’s but this gentlemen was simply saying to let him go and that it was not his fault anyway !
Think about this..the auto wala lost his shirt which might cost him his entire day’s pay…but the car wala will lose only few bucks which won’t give a dent to his monthly pay,I’m sure !
Moreover the fight was on the signal spot which was blocking the way for the vehicles to move ahead. It’s another point altogether !
Why did this car wala felt strong against this auto wala ? May be because the auto wala was submissive ? Or it was really his fault ? Or the car wala was just showing attitude over the poor auto wala ? Why do people get into these fights ? What’s the ultimate solution and how do we decide whose wrong ?
What would you do if you were there instead of this car wala ?
