    Bikers are inspired all the way from advertised a lot. So I made my mind instead of becoming angry on them call them as if its Karizma then he might be Hrithik or Ranbeer, If Yamaha then John, if any brand then Valentino Rossi :)

    Same for cars too all rash drivers are the F1 drivers so michael schumacher.

    Because what we can say as they don't know the value of their life. So here by keeping ourselves calm and proper driving sense we can help them to save their life. This can be a social responsibility too :evilsmile

    Similar feeling here,
    "When I see a bike or auto doing some kind of stunt infront of me I immediately starts laughing and watch what else he can do,
    but the same when done by a car my jaws get hard. I should be smiling at them too"

    Surely, if I start writing the above statement several time, I will be able drop the anger eventually.

    Also Ishould say that , when I clean my car and drive for the day, I drive piecefully and most of the time happy to drive a clean car and hardly get irritated by external things.

    Yesterday while returning from office on the Eastern express highway on way to Thane, Was in the extreme right lane doing around 60kmph. In front of me there is this A Star driven by a lady doing 40 kmph. Showed dipper once, twice. Honked mild honk once, twice. Seeing that the car isnt going to give way, moved to the left and overtook the car. While overtaking, the lady (actually it was a young lady in twenties probably) was muttering the cuss words and showed me the middle finger. I smiled and overtook. Later in the IVRM I could see the lady tailing me and fisting her hands. I couldnt help but smile. Broadly. The road rage has actually affected the ladies too whom I though were of the calmer types. I narrated the incident to my home minister and she suggested I should have reciprocated by returning the lady sign.

    @ghodlur, please next time don't try to mess with a lady driver as these drivers might think themselves as Angelina Jolie from Gone in 60 seconds :)

    The middle finger which the lady in the car showed me, return it back with the same was my wife's suggestion.
