    Hi All :hiya

    We often see certain characteristics or behaviour common among girls/women and boys/men which might be funny or can even cause anger...but mostly we dont have reason as y do they behave in that way

    For Eg:

    All of us know basic traffic rules, know how the traffic will be in metropolitan cities but still find

    Women talking over phone or with friends on the road and forget themselves in the discussion so much tat somebody(either some pedestrian or her friends or maybe by loud horns from the approaching vehicle) will pull her from the middle of the traffic bringing her back to the present world :bonk

    Young Men often have the habit of keeping loud horns and moving in fast and zig zag fashion on the road. :crazy

    In both the above cases,people have knowledge abt the indian roads, the people who move on the road and the traffic but yet they fail to notice at that point of time which might cause serious accidents

    I have just specified an issue that is serious.

    Please share your experiences tat are/were either serious,silly or funny.

    Rickshaw walas and Bikers, whether in chennai or mumbai, they always rush and push themselves in (at odd angles), as if they are on an emergency [more than an Ambulance? ;)] and create traffic, quarrels :rant - sometimes even accidents. Seeing an auto pushing inside a traffic is sometimes funny to watch ;) :rotfl

    Secondly, there is a stop line in every signal, but rarely people watch for it. Those who stop well before the stop line, moves inches by inches [as if occupying other's territory smartly? ;)] forward before the green signal comes.

    No one enjoys waiting in a signal or traffic. But the rules and signals are made for our safety.

    First one should change one's attitude of emerging first from a signal. Time management is very essential otherwise going to sleep very late, getting up late, rushing to work place..... when it happens with one person, not a big thing. But when it happens with every one, comes the traffic, over speeding, rushing....accidents.....

    "A person who survived from an accident can tell better - the value of a 'Second'"

    If one change oneself first, the society changes. Then driving will be pleasure.

    Happy Driving.:thumbsup

    MIRA ji, SAIRAM

    Good to have this post, Yes I do agree with SWARAN ji's above lines, EVERY ONE in bike, will swirl through as if they are in an emergency

    People still have not understood that if they start 5/10 min early this zigzagging could be avoided.

    This is about the MOTORIST of INDIA.

    DEVOTEES CHITCHATTING IN TEMPLES.

    It really gets on my nerves, when an aarthi at temple is going or a havan or homam or any pooja, ladies will go on murmuring as to "what lunch, where you bought this, all about MIL, SIL, DH and so on" lastly what irritates is that they would be even discussing about TV SERIALS.

    Do people come to worship or for an outing, they disturb themselves and also others, What a shame ELDERLY ladies cannot control gossiping ????

    Once the above is over and when we need to form the QUEUE these chitchatters will just push through the ones who were devotedly praying or listenting as if they we very sincerely waiting to do their paranam near the LORD which really irritates me.

    I hope many of us would have witnessed the above and agree with me.

    JAI SAIRAM

    Sai, when you mentioned about the temple scene, i recollected the most common question or should i say a conversation start, which happens inside the temple between two acquaintances "enna koviluku vandeengala" or "enna sami kumbida vandeengala", :rotfl then what's the purpose of coming to temple?????

    In a southindian temple, the priest gives vibhudi (ash) or kungumam (kum kum) as prasad. Members of same family gets the prasad inidividually and they smear some on their foreheads and the rest of the prasad they just put somewhere in a pillar or in the corners. :bonk

    It is we devotees who should help in maintaining the temple. Why wasting the prasad. while receiving, it is a prasad, while applying on the forehead - it's a prasad, after that?.... a waste? isn't it funny or should i say ignorance?

    When going in groups, just one person receives the prasad and distribute to others, how good it will be, sharing it with every one and not wasting it, not spoiling the temple surroundings.... will people change their attitude?

    Traffic on Indian roads is in fact a point for discussion. Many a times even well-educated citizens don't follow the traffic rules properly and thereby either cause accidents or traffic jams. And then the most irritating part is each one starts abusing the other for the traffic jam.
    A motorist who has to take a right turn at the signal will stop at the extreme left and when the signal turns green this motorist drives to the right causing a lot of inconvenience to the traffic that has to go on the straight road. Why can't they stop on the extreme right when they have to take a right turn ??
    How nice it would be if people in India follow traffic rules strictly.

    Hi Swaran,
    Nice thread...:thumbsup

    This thing happens only on fridays and only in India i guess...yes...its the day when you are supposed to wear business casuals to office.On seeing the ladies wearing multi-colored skirts, embroidered jeans with stones and the tops which doesnt at all go with the pants/skirts...you will feel like going blind...:rant

    Sandhya,
    How about the name "Prakshidha"?You can replace D with T....

    Very true, form a single line, means 3 or 4 lines in parallel or just a group with everyone in the front :rotfl . Today, had been to a temple for Vaikasi Visagam and it was funny to see the priest keep saying 'please form a single line' like telling kinder garden kids, again and again and people still trying to push each other to get the prasadam first. What is the hurry, the god is not going to go away from there :biglaugh. Once when we were waiting in Tirupathi queue for so long, another family smartly tried to divert us by chatting in a friendly manner, we were so engrossed in the talk that only later did we realize that they were behind us and had actually moved ahead of us :bonk.

    While talking about the queue system, one more common funny incidence at clinics i recollect. Where there is token system, people used to take the token in advance, and they go home and have their sweet time and will not turn up when their number is called. they come later at their own sweet time and argue that its their turn as their number comes before the prevailing one. Same thing with the appointment system too. Punctuality or taking turn properly is still missing in a vast manner, in our society.

    Regarding the dress code, majority don't follow the formal dress code and some orgaisations even didn't insist for a dress code. Through our dressing, we carry our person. Dress should not be flashy, too colourful or big designs. Should be sobre and neat. Our dress should not attract a colleague's attention. But in many places as Mythily pointed out, people dress as if they are going to attend some parties. Same with the make-up, and other accessories.
