The Sincere Traffic Constable
Visit my new portal bharaththippireddy.net
On one cloudy Monday morning, as he hurried for his job interview in the Hi-tech City, Suraj Babus bike was stopped at the Yosufguda check post by a traffic constable standing in the middle of the road like a football goal keeper waiting to stop a penalty kick.
Following the protocol , like a server at a Udipi restaurant reading out the menu - Idli, vada , Dosa , Mysore masala dosa, Rava dosa, Bisi bela bath , Kesari bath the constable quickly read the list of required documents and asked Suraj to pay a fine of 100 Rupees without receipt ,500 Rupees with receipt for each missing document.
Sorry, I do not have cash on me.
Without uttering another word the constable got on to the bike. Sitting behind Suraj he asked him to follow his directions. Shocked, Suraj thought his bike is being taken to the traffic police station.
Where are we going?
Just follow my directions.
In five minutes they have reached Tirumala Wines.
Behind this wine store is the Dena Bank ATM. Go withdraw three hundred rupees.
Why three hundred? I don't need a receipt.
Hundred for you , and two hundred for those two.
In these ten minutes I am investing in you, I would have got hold of at least two more irresponsible and careless dudes like you. Hurry up now.
