Tu mere agal bagal hai...


It was a hot summer afternoon. The dusty streets were empty. My car was on a roll. I knew I was speeding but it was okay, there wasn't anyone checking. 

I was driving fast and singing along with the music that blared on my car stereo -  khaali pili khaali pili rokane ka nahi… tera peecha karu toh tokane ka nahi.

Suddenly I saw him walking right in the middle of the road. I hit the brakes hard and the car screeched to a stop inches away from the man.

I tuned down the music; rolled down the windows and yelled at him, “Kyon bey, marne ke liye meri hi gaadi mili thi. Kisi aur ki gaadi ke saamne jaake mar.”

He slowly turned around; looked at me with blood-shot eyes and said, “Ab toh teri gaadi ke saamne hi marunga.”

With that, he got out a pistol, held it against his forehead and pulled the trigger.

The car wind shield was splattered with blood.
