Shaken .. and a little stirred too :)

I don’t know how many of you have had road accidents, but I had a pretty major one today and coming out of it with just a bruise on my left hand and a little bleeding from my left knee makes me wonder if there really is something in what these fortune tellers keep filling my mom’s ears with.
Just yesterday, my mom called to tell me to drive safely because she has been told by you-know-who that he sees a bike accident for me in near future and unless my mom does some pooja ( in other words .. feed the idiot with loads of food and respect ) … the danger to my well being shall continue. He also went on to say that it won’t be a major accident, and not fatal by any standard. How true he was .. but then again .. he can’t be so to the point and precise.
Anyway .. lets move on to the details of the accident .. and i know every one who has had an accident tells you this but in my case, it was literally true .. “It wasn’t my fault” πŸ™‚ .. I was driving along merrily .. noticing the more than usual chirping of the birds and less than usual traffic on the road .. when there came a juncture in my journey when I had to overtake an auto .. and there was a bus coming from the other side. On any other day, I would have done it with the ease of taking butter out from refrigerator and gulping it down with hot rotis .. but today was different .. today, Satan was stationed on my way … just to make sure that you-know-who gets his way .. Anyway .. Just as I was half way over-taking the auto .. I felt a push to my bike from behind and before I could even say “what the F&*K”, I was on the ground on all fours and was noticing that the chirping of the birds was lot lesser and the traffic suddenly seemed a lot thicker .. Oh .. and then it hit me .. these people have stopped to pick me up from the road .. I limped out of the road to the pedestrian walk and some nice people stopped their vehicles ( at the expense of loud horns and shouts from those who could not see what had happened ) .. The auto that I was trying to overtake offered me water and brought my bike to me .. He was also nice enough to tell everyone that the accident was not my fault and he saw some bike driver pushing my bike while I was overtaking his auto .. That took my attention to the bike and for the first time I noticed the damage that was done .. the front of the bike came under the bus wheels .. and my bike wheels and the spokes and the mud-guard and the drum ( the round thing in the middle of the tyre ) could easily be confused together for one lump of solid steel with some rubber wrapped around it .. I somehow gathered enough sense ( thanks to the water ) and after people around me left, i started looking for a bike repair shop. Thankfully there was one very close by and now my bike is off for repair. Total expenses are expected to be in the range of 3 to 5k .. But that is not bad .. the worst feeling was when an old man at the bike repair shop started asking me about the accident and when I told him that I fell to the left of the road and the bike to the right .. he said “Thank god .. wonder what would have happened if it was the other way round”
