Dear Chennai, here comes June

Welcome it with a helmet, if you want to avoid a hell-meet with your dear departed! (hey, that is better than the best advertising slogan any agency can come up with; Chennai Traffic Police should use this and perpetually pay me some amount on a monthly basis :-)).

    I know you flicked it from one of those road signs. :P

    Helmet of Hell-met? (or something like that.)

    Navneeth, nope, it’s all original and the words just fell in place in my head in a micro-second. I can be accused of anything else but plagiarism since inge aruvi maadhiri kottudhu :-).

    Good on you, then. But don’t expect any payment from the CCTP, since they came up with something similar a long time ago. :D

    To paraphrase an old line, “Wail fellow, helmet”.

    Now, Kalaignar is telling the cops to go slow on collecting mamool for not wearing helmets. He is saying since this is an order passed by high court, his cops shud not be expected to rake in the mamool for it.

    Now, I think the High Court Chief Justice should talk to the central government to build and maintain their own law enforcement department…

    Chennai Cops only enforce orders given by the Anna Arivalayam High Command not the High Court…

    Take that, you Judges that legislate from the bench !!!

    Let Karunanidhi go to the funerals. He loves an outing for his stupid grin.

    It can’t be very often that a politician gets the chance to effectively ensure that many people will die.

    We are used to his massive ego, but this is an action with absolutely zero intelligence behind it.

    As for some other politicians… exemptions for women? pillion passengers? I wish they could feel the pain of every injury they are facilitating.

    Have every one of these politicians been in a motor cycle accident?

    The surely have no brains left.

    Kalaignar’s grand strategy to oppose imposition of helmet rule now is part of a larger plan to take govt control to streamline helmet use among the public in Tamilnadu.

    Eventually, Helmet Making will be made a public sector undertaking and all private players will be nationalized.

    The total number of Helmets will be rationed to the public and 32.73% of the helmets reserved for the extremely backwardly backwardest castes(EBBC) and tribes(EBBT). Another 57.27% will be for the upliftment of the outwardly backwarder tribes from the poorest sections of society(which will be the only sections of society). The remaining 10% will be left for Other Backward Castes(Even the FCs will successfully struggle to get into the OBC category, proudly!!). This last 10% of the society will have to wait for allotments and the average waiting time for a helmet will range from 3-7 years depending on how much you can bribe the Anna Aruvaalaalaym.

    Karunanidhi will offer for his 90th Birthday a free gift of Helmets embedded with digital panels hanging from the visor that will play all TV Serials from Raj TV and K**dhi(Karunanidhi) TV to the extremely backward poor undersections of the society to enrich their lives and experiences on the road. The helmet users will also have an advanced option to turn off the TV panel and actually watch where they are aiming their vehicles at.

    If only whats inside those heads were worth 1% of the cost of those helmets.

    Thanks for bringing a touch of humour to such a such a frustratingly depressing situation :).
