reality....


had been to koramangala from malleshwaram on sunday and was surprised[and shocked!] by the way the autorickshaw meter kept on running and finally the amount showed by it was abt 120rs[normally its only abt 80-90rs!!]....these autorickshaw drivers manipulate it properly according to their convenience and coax us to pay such amounts..mo wonder people hate them[not all!]...

I am not so sure, most of these auto guys really struggle hard, this is no way to justify their tampering with meter.

But everytime I feel like this I start talking to them, and try to figure out. If looks genuine fine, if it does not you can call the Police helpline.

well, thankfully, i havent had too many such experiences. remember one such exp when i was coming to college from bowring, we gave 40, although the meter had read well above it. the guy did not argue!
