At around 2:00 pm on December 11, I was driving towards Marathahalli (in Bengaluru), under the KR Puram Bridge next to the railway station.

The traffic was very slow. While waiting there for the vehicles to move, I heard the driver of a red Maruti Swift car on my left shouting and making some obscene hand gestures.

I chose to ignore and moved ahead with the vehicles on to the flyover that connects to the Outer Ring Road.

While on the flyover, I saw the car tailing me. I still did not think much of it, thinking it could be heading in the same direction as I.

However, giving into my keep safe instincts, I decided to avoid being close to the car at the next signal.

Due to the heavy traffic, there was not much place to manoeuvred my car around and I ended up right in the middle of the road. As soon as my car stopped at the signal, many men jumped out of the Swift, which was right behind me, and surrounded my car.

They started banging on the car; one guy was clicking my pictures while others hit the car, the car windows, the front windshield, rearview mirror, etc. They kept shouting and abusing in Kannada and demanded that I get out of the car. I just gestured them to move away.

I was surrounded by many vehicles with people in them and yet not one soul dared to question those men, on what they were doing and why they were harassing a lone woman.

Next, I saw two of the men bending down to deflate the front tyres. That’s when I started screaming inside the car and asked them to get away. To stop them from acting on their threat, I started to move the vehicle. By this time the signal turned green and I could drive ahead.

I was scared. As soon as I crossed that signal, I called my friend who was the last-dialled number on my phone, to tell her what had happened.
She asked my location and told me that she would get help. I kept watching if I was being followed, but in that bumper-to-bumper traffic I could not make out much. I was very stressed too.

By the time I reached the next signal, these guys, some 6-7 of them, were already there, waiting for me on the divider. The moment my vehicle stopped at the red signal, they came back to hound me.

By this time I panicked and broke down in tears. At that time my friend called and she could hear these guys pounding my car. I pleaded for help, but people around me kept watching silently, as these men kept on harassing me.

The apathetic reaction of the onlookers towards the whole situation scared me even more. And the goons, well, they seem to have absolutely no fear that they will get caught. They kept clicking my pictures, kept banging the car, trying to break the glass, etc.

At that moment, my only safety was my car. The goons pursued me to the next signal as well, before I finally managed to lose them close to Marathahalli.

Meanwhile, my friend called the police and they reached out to me asking me to come to the nearest police station. On my way to the police station, I was then asked by the police to stop wherever I was, and was met by two policemen who had reached out to me over the phone first.
They checked my vehicle to see if it was a case of road rage, if I had hit the other vehicle, but then they ruled it out as there was no evidence to that effect.

I wanted to file a complaint, but they said since, I could not see or note the vehicle number ( as at no point the vehicle was in front of me) or had clicked the pictures of the attackers, there was nothing much they could do to help.

I bought their argument and allowed them to escort me home. It was only later, after talking to some of my media friends, did I come to know that this was not an isolated incident or a random act of hooliganism.

According to them, this was an attempt at kidnapping/abduction as the modus operandi used by those who attacked me was similar to the one used in other incidents as well where victims are accused of damaging some vehicle and harassed to get out and negotiate or pay up.
Once the victim steps out of the vehicle, the gang members get into the car and take control; abduct the victim (beat them up in many cases) and then demand ransom from the family members or take them to an ATM and force them to withdraw a good sum of money.

By standers should have at least called Police. Helping directly is a heroic deed as it comes with great RISK, you all know, now a days…I feel better call police than involve in the argument with crooks which makes no affect unless one sees imminent physical harm being done to victim.

Is this really real? It looks fictitious to me. KR Puram Bridge signal will always be busy with traffic. There will be at least two or three traffic police in almost all the signals from there till Marathahalli.

Finally, I’m a Bengalurean and as far as I know, at least a few Bangaloreans will react to these situations and try to stop it. More people will support if it is a woman.

I read this on Team-Bhp few months back. From what i have read, it is a real incident. Best option on Indian roads is to have a Dashcam installed on your car for safety. You can get a decent one from ebay.com/Aliexpress for 5-7k.

As mentioned in the article, it is best to avoid getting out of the car for safety reasons.A car can be used as a shied. If you are being chased, Drive down to nearby police station or any big office or hotel.

Last but not the least, Exercise hard and look tuff. Join boxing classes. I doubt if anyone would want to mess with a big muscular guy.:lol:

Bangalore will need a lot of effort to reach anywhere close to Delhi, Gurgaon. Bangalore for most part is still a much better & peaceful city than Delhi. Isolated incidence such as these should not be used as a yard stick to measure the crime index in a city.

Exactly. its 2.00 PM and daylight..I thought I read it as 2.00 AM. at 2.00 PM , surely there are number of people riding their vehicles on roads especially from KR puram to marathalli.

Still I feel bad for above incident.

Yes, it was a real incident. It’s quite disappointing that such kind of things happened in a peaceful city like Bangalore. I remember once I was in a similar kind of scenario (not completely though toungueout) when I was new to Bangalore. I got in a quarrel with an autoriksha driver and went ahead accelerating my bike to leave him behind. He started chasing me knowing that the autoriskha stand was nearby and he would get enough of support from his colleagues. I couldn’t make it because of the rush at Yeshwanthpur signal and was ultimately chased by him. He started abusing me in Kannada and took the keys of my motorbike. The moment he started leaving from this place keeping the keys in his pocket, people started opposing him and within seconds I had a support of a large no of people. Finally he had to give me the keys back and leave in frustration.

I really can’t figure out that why she couldn’t seek the support of the commuters. It might be because they were many and having some weapons along with them. I am not sure what to say about police here.

Those of you who worry about Democrats versus Republicans — relax, here is our real problem.

In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States. It was pretty simple.
The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.
However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair it was of the requirement to be a natural born citizen.
In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.

The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating,
“What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?”

Yep, these are the same kinds of 18-year-olds that are now voting in our elections! They breed, and they walk among us.
We need more help than we thought we did!

ATM robber hits himself into a coma, after cops pull shutter and trap him inside

| The News Minute

Fearing that he would get arrested, a 30-year-old man hit himself in the head with a hammer, one of the tools he was carrying to rob an ATM, and knocked himself into a coma.

According to the report in the Times of India, the incident occured in Devarakadra town in Telangana’s Khammam district on Tuesday.

Y Shivanagaraju from Bhavanapallly village in Khammam entered a State Bank of Hyderabad (SBH) ATM with all the tools required to break into the machine. However, to his bad luck, a constable saw him going inside and managed to close the shutter and call for backup. When the cops arrived at the spot and opened the shutter, they found the robber in an unconscious state with head injuries.

Sub-inspector of Devarakadra Vinay Kumar Reddy told TOI that “Shivanagaraju must have hit himself repeatedly with a hammer on his head which resulted the injuries and he slipped into coma. We immediately took him to the nearby hospital and then we later shifted him to Mahbubnagar area hospital.”

The CCTV footage from the ATM confirmed that the man hit himself on his head multiple times. The hospital authorities added that his condition was critical.

Tanzania’s newly elected president, John Pombe Magufuli is at it again and this time around his actions have left a bad taste in people’s mouths.

Word going round is that the 56-year-old has ordered that all foreigners including Kenyans with or without work permits to relinquish their jobs to the Tanzanians.

The operation which is dubbed ‘Oparesheni Timua’ was launched Thursday and it will see Tanzanian immigration officials carry out door to door workplace raids to hunt ‘foreigners’ doing business in Tanzania.

Tanzania’s Assistant Minister for Home Affairs Hamad Masauni confirmed the ongoing operation saying that its’ main aim was to reduce the number of visitors doing jobs that can be done by the natives.

Masauni who was speaking at a press conference in Dar es Salaam on Thursday added that the operation was only to make sure that visitors follow immigration rules.

Those who have been greatly affected by this operation are Kenyan teachers working in private schools in Tanzania.

Kenyans have since retaliated by asking President Uhuru Kenyatta to deport all Tanzanians who are working in the country.

Will India or Pakistan have someone like this ever?

Tanzania President did this in just 3 Month – AMAZING
On November 5, 2015 Tanzania swore into office a
new President. Coincidentally he is also a John.
John Magufuli is doing what has been termed the “Rwandanisation of Tanzania” (@Magus)
If you dont know about what Paul Kagame has done with
Rwanda make Google your friend.
New Tanzania President did this in just 3 Month – AMAZING
Here are some of the things John Magufuli has done already in
LESS THAN A MONTH. Not in 3 or 6 years, one month. He’s shown a clear
commitment to walk the talk but not to talk and talk and talk and talk more like we do here:

1. Soon after his election, Magufuli declared there would be
no celebration of Independence Day on 9 December because
it would be “shameful” to spend huge sums of money on the celebrations
when people were dying of cholera. Instead, the day has been set as a
national day of cleanliness, and the money will go toward street¬cleaning services.
He has said everybody should pick up their tools and clean their backyards.

2. After his first official visit to the Muhimbili Hospital, and
seeing the horrible state it was in, he ordered over 200 million
shillings marked for “parliament parties” be used to pay for
beds for people lying on the floor and sharing beds.

A few days later 300 beds were delivered. He dismissed the
governing board and got a new team in place, and within days the broken
MRI was fixed. He also pared down his inauguration party from
$100,000 to $7,000 and sent the extra money to the hospital.

3. Three days into his term, Magufuli announced a ban on all foreign
travel by government officials. They have been instructed to instead
make regular visits to rural areas to learn and help solve problems
facing everyday Tanzanians. All tasks that required officials to travel
abroad would instead be done by high commissioners and
ambassadors who are already in place.

4. He has restricted all first¬ and business class travel to
government officials, except the president, vice¬president and prime minister.

5. There will be no more workshops and seminars in expensive hotels
when there are so many ministry board rooms available.
6. He suspended the Tanzania Revenue Authority’s chief and other officials
pending investigations after a visit by Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa to
the port of Dar es Salaam found 350 containers listed in its books were missing.

7. When he had to travel 600km to Dodoma, from Dar, to officially open
parliament last week, he didn’t order a private jet –
instead, he chose to drive.

8. At the National Assembly in Dodoma last week he clearly sent out
the message that it will not be business as usual under his leadership.

9. He promised to cut public spending, fight corruption and enhance
accountability in public service. He said it is time for Tanzanians to walk the talk.

10. Magufuli reportedly told parliamentary leaders that the people of
Tanzania want him to solve their problems and not make speeches.

Once, a lady with her family was staying in a 3-star hotel for a picnic. She was the mother of a 6 month old baby.

“Can I get 1 cup of milk?” asked the lady to the 3-star hotel manager.
“Yes madam”, he replied.
“But it will cost 100 bucks”. “No problem”, said the lady.
While driving back from hotel, the child was hungry again.
They stopped at a road side tea stall and took milk from the tea vendor
“How much?” she asked the tea vendor.
“Madam, we don’t charge money for kid’s milk”, the old man said with a smile.
“Let me know if you need more for the journey”. The lady took one more cup and left.
She wondered, Who’s richer? The hotel manager or the old tea vendor?

​Who is poor?
A wealthy woman goes to a boutique and tells the boy at the counter “Please show some cheap suit. It is my son’s marriage and I have to give to my maid.”
After sometime, the maid comes to the boutique shop and tells the boy at the counter “Please show some expensive suits. I want to gift my Mistress on her son’s marriage”
Poverty is in the mind or in the purse?


Sometimes, in the race for more money, we forget that we are all humans. Let’s help someone in need, without expecting something in return. It will make us feel better than what money can.​

We are good as individuals but become better when we meet and blend with the right people…. Stay connected.

The world is full of nice people… If you can’t find one… Be one.
