    Lahore (cont'd.... Lahori Traffic)

    ok

    LOL NY yaar!!

    Lahori traffic is truely a wonder.
    I also insist that if you can drive in Lahore, you can drive NEWhere man!!

    I learnt to drive at 14 in Lahore. It was however the relatively easy area of Defense where I learnt it.I still remember...was it Walton Road...?? on my first proper drive, I overtook a Tonga from the left!!! oops!! and squeezed between the Tonga and a Suzuki van.
    My uncle's driver who was teaching me said :
    "Tu sahi rahengaa putarr !! "

    Lemme tell you a story.
    At UET :University of Engineering & Technology, there was this visiting professor from France. On his first day in Lahore, he comes into the staff room...out of breath and sweating like crazy. On being asked what happened, the poor guy replied :
    "Gosh man! everyone on the road is trying to kill me!"

      NYAhmedi,

      yaar kia baat hai teri......tasveer bann ke rakh ditti oo ke....

      Reading your post, I was thinking how alike the Ludhiana and Amritsar (the two cities I lived at) traffic is to Lahori traffic. It is always fun to drive in those places.

      My ULTIMATE TRAFFIC RULES say:
      1. Driving is like a war that you have to fight everyday unless you are a piece of furniture.

      2. Everyone bigger than you (your car, truck etc.) is here to kill you,everyone smaller than you is here to be killed by you.

      3. Save yourself...which in Lahori traffic will mean....kill the others.

        very nicely written
        Thankyou
        I have to disagree...females are as 'good' as men while driving in lahore. Have seen my ammi take all sorts of pangas on the roads

            NYAhmadi: Please do write that book on Hira Mandi...Now that you have claimed to know lot about it. It makes me really curious. What do you know about Hira Mandi? May be it will help us to become "fully formed as human beings"

            CM - Now even more curious
