    @Rajan,
    Oh yes now i understand. The slop on the road side. Just a matter of playing with COG yea ;) Driving is really a hard skills to learn...

    On the side note, i feel sorry for that car driver/owner.

    Sad to see that car toppled and glad to know that the passengers were safe :)

    This kind of yoga is harmful to health though !!!

    That is right Zen. One cannot get a car, drive a few thousand kilometres and claim to be a great driver. That would be like getting 9 women pregnant at the same time, hoping to get a baby in a month. It comes with experience buddy, not with just distance or speed.

    I was trying to convince my fat Italian not to get into this Yoga thing but she looked hell bent, fame is such a must these days. After your comment, may be she will decline...

    This car was just behind me for quite sometime with 4 guys in it. I saw this going ROFL in my rear view, was trying to over take a Safari and were denied any side. The guy tried some off-roading for takeover at around 70-80 km/hr and messed it completely. There was no reason why it should topple over, Perhaps two tires on road and two off-roading confused the driver, panicked and hard braking, The swift lost it's balance and a lot of Tyre screeching. I was confused where it just disappeared as there was no LEFT TURN to the best of my knowledge:confused:, obviously see tires hanging up in the adjacent bushes next second.

    The Safari guy did flee from the scene though it was not his mistake at all. Reversed it and saw all guys crawling out of car from front passenger side window. You know those fast-furious kinda guys who think it is all just a cakewalk. Initially they were scared to death and they called up another vehicle to escort them. Good that it toppled over on lush bushes and grass (thanks to heavy Monsoon!) else could turn very ugly. One guy was literally swearing to ever sit in a car which is driven not by him.

    Had some odd cramps and muscle pulls i guess, because all of them were doing a walk and massaging their body parts that were hurting. They were giving some real mouthful to their driver friend non-stop. While doing all this, one guy suddenly turned and asked me if i had a cigarette, that would help him stand straight. That was the most hilarious moment of my life:evilsmile. I offered it and left the scene since all of them were fine. This was kind of "Happy_Go_Lucky" incidence. The Swift Grill was lying some 30 feet away from the car. To survive in a Swift and getting one more chance at life, they have to be the improved drivers now.

    Moron, overtaking from left side extreme on a state highway. Must be high or crazy. Even yest on the outer ring road, i was a bit scared to takeover from left side (Right most lane to middle lane) but this side is on extereme end... Phew... :A

    Well i agree we shouldn't, there was one hell of an important moral taken from this incidence.

    Don't forget to keep at least 1 cigarette in your car, If you ever mistakenly caught in such a situation & can't stand straight, light a cigarette and there you go:dancing!

    For beginners, here are the guidelines..
