Driving Personalities & Past Life theory

I was not a strong believer in Past Life theories for a long time. At least not since my birth in Present Life.  But things changed.  They changed, after I took my driving test and got behind the wheels on my own.  It was one busy morning in my driving seat and I was speeding on the highway. Atleast for a novice driver like me, 50kmph was like a full throttle charge. And just then I got a Vision. All my fellow drivers on the highway zipping past me, had transformed into some possessed creatures from the animal kingdom. Unfortunately this vision has been haunting me every time I am behind the wheel.

So here is my dreadful list of Past life forms of most of my fellow drivers that I have been encountering everyday.

The Mighty Rat:

This past life species drives with only a singular objective. Find a gap between two cars and encroach that space. They are ready to jeopardize their and others life through every minute of their driving. Some how a large population of Autorickshaw drivers in India fall under this Past life form.

The Zig- zag Cobra: 

Drivers with tendencies of this past life form bear a strong resemblance with ‘The Mighty Rat’. Yet one of the biggest difference being the speed at which the Cobra souls drive their bodies. Lethal in attack and also unfortunately with may be the highest mortality rates in Present Life.

The Sleepy Snail:  This Past Life form has actually absolute disregard for any laws of motion, but still adheres to the 1st law of motion- If an object experiences no net force, then its velocity is constant: the object is either at rest (if its velocity is zero), or it moves in a straight line with constant speed (if its velocity is nonzero).  They also prefer to defy laws of time and space.

The Scorpion King:

Empty road or crowded roads, these  Past Life souls prefer to drive their vehicles crossways. They may not be always fast,but straight road is not for them. Somehow they also display a higher degree of vengeance to fellow creatures  on the road and are abusive like their Rat and Cobra counterparts. No one escapes a sting by the Scorpion King.

The Gentle Horse:

This one is the safest Past Life species to befriend, atleast for me. They mend their own way, gentle yet assertive on the lane.  Traffic or no traffic, these gentle souls do not fret. For them, life is journey. Destination and time to destination is secondary. Safety and pleasure of the ride are some past life instincts of this genre. Interestingly, in  Present Life this species has demonstrated longer life span.

The Raging Bull:

This one seems to be the most dreadful of the all the Past Life forms to me. With their dark evil shadows looming over me all the time, they cannot stop honking their ‘Horns’ ! I have almost got mowed down by them, thanks to my single lane driving instincts.

My dreadful visions have not stopped yet; I am anxious that more species might get discovered. Do feel free to report any new findings.

And yes, no matter who you were in your past life, Wish you SAFE DRIVING 🙂

Coffins on the Highway

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

Swinging left to right,

No blinkers I can see.

Some bodies glued to their mobiles,

Some bodies without seatbelts.

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

Some bodies have enough alcohol within themselves to burn their pyre instantly.

Eager to embrace the demons of death.

Sure these bodies have loved ones who care about them.

A mother, an old father, a caring and supporting wife with kids.

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

Bang I saw another thud in front of me.

And I pulled over to inspect the coffin ahead of me.

Blood all over,

And broken limbs.

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

With no one willing to bother to stop by, forget a willing gesture that one cares,

I put these listless limbs on my wheels.

We spin to the hospital,

To revive these fellow coffin travelers.

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

Back at the hospital,

After some easy yet routine formalities,

They started the treatment,

And we informed the kin of these coffin travelers.

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

 

Another life saved, or may be reborn.

Never neglect a coffin on the highway.

Do help other coffins out of sheer fear or pure duty.

The next coffin could carry your loved ones or you !

 

Coffins on the Highway,

Zip past me.

Road accidents are on the rise across the world. Statistics apart, what is important is that how responsible are we when we are behind the wheels. Most people consider ‘driving’,  to be a right.  Seldom is it emphasized  that it is a privilege.

Yes there are idiots on the road. At time we ourselves drive idiotically. But may be 90% or more of the accidents can be avoided, provided we drive exercising our privilege responsibly.

Can we more responsible coffin drivers ?
