What was his Fault ?
Tweet As i was busy in my work since many days, it didn't gave me any chance to post on my blog. So today i am narrating you an incident which happened with me two days back.
As usual i left home for office at around 9:30 am in the morning after sleeping late till 9 am in the morning. I just took the Auto(here in my city Auto is a three wheeler where around 10 people can sit) which was half filled. I was busy in typing message from my Cell to my Boss and realised that Auto had stopped as some passenger has reached his destination.
The next thing what i heard was sound of a slap, i turn around and saw a man(in his mid 20s) slapping the Auto Driver(who was in early 20s) one after another without any sympathy. I was shocked to see this and shouted on the man "Issko Thappad kyun maar rahe ho?"(why are you slapping him) he replied instantly "Issne Auto se cut mara, mai apni Bike se marte marte bacha ! "(I nearly died as this Auto Driver took a cut)
I replied that you didn't died na ? then now leave him, but to my surprise he slapped him again and said to me do whatever i will slap him and again gave him 4,5 slaps.
Me in shock could not have any answer to him, as the next target of him could be me also. The guy left the Auto Driver after verbally abusing him, and staring at me with his eyes as if saying to me that you tiny fellow keep quiet otherwise tyranny could fall on you.
Poor Auto Driver could not utter a single word to him, and all his fault was that a passenger wanted to get off the Auto and he stopped it on sideways and couldn't see the Mighty Biker who was coming behind the Auto. I was ashamed of myself that i could do nothing for the Poor man as i was afraid of that pathetic person who was brutally beating him.
But the dejected Auto Driver again continued driving his Auto as nothing has happened, may be he is used to this kind of brutality thats been forced upon him by people who still treat poor people like any other Animal. The Auto was moving on and soon i completed my journey and paid him 5 Rs(the auto charge), thats all he gets per passenger on one trip. He was unable to see in my eyes as i looked in his eyes , but his fault was nothing.
I moved along and thought " what was his fault ? ", " How could have we helped him at that time ? ". But there were other people who were also on that Auto, why were they dumb ? They all knew that it was no big offence that Auto Driver has committed, they could have raised their Voice with me, but they didn't. If all of us had called to that dirty human being in oneness, he could have got no chance to Slap Auto Driver, a single man could not withstand in front of so many people.
But that didn't happened, i guess its in our society now to just mind our own Business and be on the safer side. This will just increase confidence in these kind of people and they will continue to deal in these kind of deeds. This will result in a bigger gap between Poor and the Strong.
So, all those people who are reading this incident from now onwards please raise your voice against such cowardly acts and people like this Auto Driver will know that there is someone on their side also. Tweet
