Driving through a particularly nasty traffic jam this morning, I got stuck behind a beat up old Maruti-800.  Nothing earth shattering about a Maruti-800, or a traffic-jam, or getting stuck behind a Maruti-800 in a traffic jam.

But no. This particular car was special.   On either side of the car were blood-red, 10-inch high capital letters proclaiming that the owner/driver was ‘BORN TO BE WILD’.

Wow! Really?  You don’t say?  And you own a car that goes faster than 60 kmph only if it’s running downhill.  You aim for great things, my man.  Crowley bows before Your Eminence.

But that’s not what made this car special. 

The rear windshield had ‘Advocate MAD’ emblazoned across it, in glittery letters.

Clearly, Crowley’s not the only warped lawyer in Delhi.

(Yes, I have been ignoring BBC for a while.  Writer’s block persists; hurried negotiations on the foreign relations front have been going on; and a general re-visitation of my Porcupine Tree discography was badly required, so kindly pardon the slacking off.  Crowley shall return, soon with lots more spite)

I may have seen that Maruti myself! Quite common though, innit, to see an 800 jazzed up with neon lights and vinyl graphics and a tube amp in the dikky.

Joe said...

Apology accepted, Crowley! We shall all duly lie in wait for you to fill us with thy oodles of spite.

As for the 800 and its occupant, lol, at least it aint half as bad as a cop on a TVS XL chasing a guy on a Pulsar (swear to god it happened today, here in dear ol chennai!)

I was once aboard a spluttering jalopy trying to pass off as a Punjab Roadways bus, when we were overtaken from the left by a jet black 800 !! The rear windshield read "Overtaker, Beware Of The Undertaker!!"

In college days, there used to be this Ambassador with its top chopped off !! It's backside read 'Jaat in Mood' !

I guess Advocate MAD needs to be added to the list !!

Mister Crowley said...

Per: Only in Delhi. Sigh. But they're entertaining, all the same.

Joe: Daaaiii, hahahaha. Ok, the TVS scene beats the 800 hollow. Bwahhahahahahaha....

Pippin: Huddle closer is right. It also thrashes 'Hakoona Mattatta Jaat Da" (I've seen that too).

Mister Crowley said...

Nomad: Ah, The Boy, heh heh. I think someone should start a photolog for stuff like this.

snow said...

Mister Crowley said...

Snow: Danke. Happy reading.

D said...

Lol! And what's with lawyers wanting to advertise to the world that they're lawyers?!

purely-narcotic said...

Ah! Not all is quiet on the Northern front.

Looking for glue, eh? ;)

Mister Crowley said...

D: Advertise? US? Says who? :P

Narco: It's never quiet down here ;) And I've now wound up with an, er, extra large tube of Superglue ;)

purely-narcotic said...

ew! Sticky and extra large, too!

What you inhaling these days? ;)

Mister Crowley said...

Narco: Chocolate dust. It's the new, er, narcotic :P

chandni said...

Anansi said...

Mister Crowley said...

Anansi: It was a he, and looked rather proud of the monstrosity :)
