The 29 mins..



      It was just another regular day.. I was waiting in the bus stop for a volvo.. time passed.. not even a single volvo in sight.. my mobile was playing its usual guitar beats.. telling me that I m getting late for a meeting.. so then I decided I will take up an auto… you can get even a nobel prize very easily than to get a proper auto in bangalore.. time is running and I was so frustrated on the lookout…hunger on the other hand was driving me nuts…

      It was then an empty auto passed in front of me.. the auto driver looked quite familiar but it dint strike me who he was…

      Luckily or unluckily, he said he was ok to drop me at my place (ppl who don't know auto wallas in bangalore.. they do get paid for their service) .. ok.. let me come back to my story. I got into the auto and saw the interiors… it was dirty dirty every where with not even the top to spare.. Owing to my situation, I had no option but to continue my incredible journey..

      1 km down, he went and hit a road separator and the right side of the auto took a hit.. knowing what to expect in case of accidents, I got down to pay his money and was deciding to be on the lookout for a new auto.. Sensing me getting down, he stopped cursing on the road and said let's go.. his action was quite weird to me.. but not thinking too much.. I said ok.. my brain still searching for the knowingness of the uncombed hair and the sense of losing in the spectacled eyes..

      Few more yards passed.. I saw the meter was running more than the speed of a rocket… so I enquired with him.. his response was.. what you are working in IT field.. you earn so much.. why can't you pay me.. and 2 secs later, he said, “so madam, how much do you earn?” I was zapped by the question yet bringing the confidence face on.. I asked him to stop the auto.. yet he still continued.. I said again.. Auto stop maadi…. quite loudly.. Lazily, he said, “ok madam.. meter is wrong.. pay me how much u want”

Something in me was strongly telling… something is really really going wrong…

      2 mins later.. he stopped his auto to fill gas.. still a km to my office… and I was getting frustrated every crossing second.. then he came to me and looked at me and asked, “madam… are u getting very late…” I said.. oh.. hell.. yeah.. then his reply was.. don't worry.. it will just take 2 mins to fill gas in my auto…. as soon as we are done.. I will immediately drop you in your office… Don’t worry..

      Hearing this.. I looked at him… It was then I realized who it was… Yes.. he was none other than the look alike of vinoth in kaadhal kondaen.. (ppl who don’t know who it is.. Actor Danush plays a role of a psychopath in this movie)

      Wondering the turn of events, I immediately got down from the auto.. handed him a 100 bucks and not even expecting a change… I ran and vanished away in the busy crossing area…
