A Robot on the Roads of Bangalore

Wondering who this robot is? Well, its me! And want to know why I call myself so? Because I look like one while travelling (don't know about the other times) :-P

I wear a green scarf around my hair, a dark blue helmet on top of it, and finally a greyish silver jacket. Can you imagine it? Well, its ridiculous. But I can't help it. The dust and wind compels me to make a foolish appearance of myself. Anyhow I reach office and home well protected from the polluted, dusty air. There was a time when I thought that I would never wear a helmet because I disliked it. So when there was a rule forcing two-wheeler riders to wear a helmet, I was totally against it. But now being in Bangalore, even if the government repeals the law, I am going to continue wearing the helmet. :-D

And as you all know its safe to wear the helmet also. The last time I fell, I was lucky to have been wearing the helmet because I fell face down on the road. And could hear the helmet banging hardly on the tarred surface. Just can't imagine what would have happened if I hadn't worn it that day!

So if you find a robot on the roads of Bangalore, don't wonder, its me!

@ Rockus: No,don't call me that! I don't tie the scarf onto my face... :-P Yeah, going towards the north you can see girls coming out fully covered - scarfs, gloves which stretch till the upper arm, goggles and so on.

It was good that you wore the helmet that day.
.....Good idea to be protected against dust, too.

@ Raji: Yeah, sometimes I do wonder what would have happened, hadn't I worn the helmet that day! Perhaps I wouldn't be blogging anymore... ;-)
