… is what I would call this man (some call him Gaurav Chopra) who almost ran over Kiran’s little son Krish who was peacefully cycling within the colony.
There is something about brash young men that makes me want to catch them by the collar and give them a good shaking. Perhaps they forget that a mere ten years or so ago, they were young boys playing cricket in the colony and cycling around the building.
What makes this worse is that this is all within a gated community where you’re expected to be driving slowly, keeping in mind that the young and elderly share this space with you. We’re not only growing more uncouth everyday, we’re also increasingly selfish and aggressive. As he proved by getting out and yelling at Kiran instead of apologising for what was his fault. I suppose what they say about all bullies is right – that they’re basically lily livered. Because the moment the irate big built father came out to deal with him, the bully turned coward. And hastily apologised for having told Kiran to look out or the child might not be so lucky the next time. Yes, he did say that! The diabolical insolence of it!!!
What is it that gives people this sense of entitlement? Fame? Can’t be. Because I had to google him to figure out who she was talking about. He’s not really a household name you know. (Not that it would make a difference but…)
Rash driving has got Salman Khan’s car and then the BMW case into the limelight. Yet, no one seems to have learnt a lesson. You don’t need to be a parent to care for life. I hope more people speak up against it.
Edited to add: So it looks like the young man’s PR agency got back to him about this bad press because he showed up at Kiran’s doorstep with chocolates and an apology. Good for him.
