Rd and i were returning from college one day , i was driving the bike , as usual , while RD was busy listening to songs on my mp3 player.n the worst part of it was that he was singing loudly and i could'nt run n hide n cover my ears , i had to bear the agony :) we were moving along on the service lane , next to the highway , a truck jus sped past us , narrowly missing us ..we thanked our stars , and kept moving ..we saw the same truck in a few mins , standing stark in the middle of the road ..the service lane is a very narrow road and the truck blocked our only way out ..we were waiting behind the truck , the bike idling , when suddenly , the truck started backing started moving closer and my bike was just behind the truck's rear tyres..i thought the truck would stop but it just gained speed ..i shouted to RD to jump off , but the stupid boy was so mesmerized in his singing that he had closed his eyes and wa singing loudly , enjoying the "melody" ..i shouted again , this time with, telling him to get off , but to no avail ..the truck was jus inches from my bike now , still backing ..i shook the bike ferociousl;y , and rd lost balance n fell on d ground and thats when he realised that a truck was going to crush us ..he gave a scream which resembled like the scream of a "damsel in distress" , and i jumped off the bike..the rear tyre of the truck wa jus touching the bike when i ran upto the front and shouted at the driver to stop!!..he did ..RD and i were furious ..we wanted to give the driver a hard time ..RD roared , in his usual voice , come out and see wat u have done could have killed us ..the driver came out , meekly , n then the helper came out , n then guys kept coming out . there were around 15 of them , all cramped inside the small driver's compartment of the truck ..well, RD's aggression took a back seat , n his voice changed , and very politely , he told them that they should be more careful in the future ..the men also apologised profusely , which was unlike the people in that area ..

    I remember this incident pretty well ..!! guns was also chilled out actually [ though not by the melodious RD tunes ] but by the cool types weather - nite time .. .... and guns described this incident pretty well to all of us [ bole toh in our chowdapa lingo ].. i rem - he said: i was looking at the tyres of the truck , were rolling as smooth as a scoop in an ice cream bar and all of a sudden bcos of the strong breaking [trucks have power breaks - pulsar dnt ;)] the tyres stopped ;just stopped rolling [ skidded ] and as u all knw poor guns ..tried hard to stop...
    another fun types thing i partially rem is that [ after guns managed to break n pull off ] RD was still humming a song [ i dnt exactly rem which song - it was some funny wierd song - guns hated tht]
