Driving without the Horn?

At present i live in bangalore. I have seen people use their horns in their cars to satisfy their compulsive craving to honk, irrespective of the need. I would excuse the Taxi drivers because they need to honk in rhythm with their heartbeat!!

In 2010 and in 2011 i had two instances wherein my car horn went bad and needed repair and replacement. On both the occasions, i delayed the repairs by about 5 months and drove the car in the city without the horn working. Except for one or two cases where i felt the horn should have worked, at no other time did i face any problem. The traffic was the same--bad, congested, but it was not a problem. I did not get delayed any time and took the same amount of time to travel as i would have taken if the horn was working. At the end i was happy and proved a point or so to my friends and family. However, i would not advise any one to try this stunt if travels a lot or travels mostly in evenings or in the night. In fact, i would advise no one to try this. The only message i want to convey is that--- we need to curb our desire to honk unnecessarily.

I vividly remember my father-in-law, my wife  and others telling me to get the horn repaired and the look of disbelief(...might have been panic) when i told them that i would drive without horn for sometime.

Something that I penned in my college days

keep smiling,
keep shinning,
in good times,
in bad times,
that's the way you ought to be,
that's the way you ought to live.


As long as you keep a person down, some part of you has to be there to hold him it means you cannot soar as u otherwise might..

self management tips

i have realised that to make others remember about a certain incident or anything relevant to me but not so relevant to them ..i get best results when i linger a bit longer while talking on the topic and discuss other things also..this also helps in reminding him about the event in case he forgets... by associating to the other topics discussed.

EXAMPLE:... oh.. u have forgotten about the computer furniture deal we spoke of..but if u recollect ..we also discussed about the prevaling weather in the city on that day and u were particularly not happy about the powercuts during the storms or heavy rains !!

my friend: yeah... now i remember the discussion...

TIP: the other things dicussed have hepled me similar to a bookmarker or a hyperlinl on a web page

my childish thoughts(sayings)..when i was in school

Every good is bad for some
Every bad is good for some
Because bad and good are made for each other
you cannot find them alone!
if not their existence is gone!

i am going to put my thoughts, views on this site...will take some time
