    When the Driver with Good Track Record Claims that the Break Failure was the cause for the Accident i think we shud give a benefit of doubt. Not only the driver involved in accident but even other gave the same report about the bus. Either way the Victims won return. May their Soul rest in peace.

    This is just terrible. I think the traffic conditions are becoming worse everyday in B’lore. Last year when we visited, I could not believe it is the same B’lore I had lived in for so many years. The traffic has increased manifold, but the roads have not….May God give the families of the victims of this horrific accident the strength to deal with their loss. My heart goes out to them.

    vijay,
    got the news y’day from a friend. your post is really written well and to the point.

    prasanna,
    but i have read that the driver sped away. if he was not at fault, why did he have to run away? of course, the victims will not come back if buses are burnt. may their soul rest in peace. sympathies with their families and the injured.

    tp,
    in the tretha yuga and dwapara yuga, rishis used to CURSE a person who was at fault. (Eg: Be born as a fish/ May you become an ugly demon and so on). Maybe we people who are driving in this mad traffic are CURSED by some really angry rishi in the previous YUGA. He must have cursed the whole human race in India and that is the reason all of us are caught suffering by TRAFFIC-ASURA and JAM-ASURA. I really feel that unless you are cursed, you will not be driving here. And all those who are suffering without driving are indirectly cursed by the rishi.

    you said, “The traffic has increased manifold, but the roads have not…”. wider roads may accommodate more vehicles but not the narrow-mindedness of many drivers who seem to feel indignant if anyone dare overtake them. there was a time when KEEP LEFT was the mantra. however, today everyone on the roads and even on pavements and shopping aisles seem determined to KEEP RIGHT or stand bang in the middle to obstruct others. people seem very insulted if anyone dares to overtake their leisurely progression.
