Big Bearded Guy.Will never take the first step to meeting someone new.Like to be left to myself and my close-knit circle of friends to live my life in peace. Will never put my foot wrong. Will react to violence or bad deeds committed in my presence.My Bark is always worse than my bite.
In the nilgiris a rash motorcycle rider ran over a small girl coming home with villager-father. Sally,my elder, was with me.She was the same age as the girl;around 6. The driver,
a very arrogant,rich,affluent,landlord gunned his bike and started down the road. I screamed at the top of my voice to the rider.He turned the bike and came at me. I put,my daughter Sally in the middle of the road and asked him if he dared run over her. Villagers(peasants)had gathered all round.Meanwhile I had cleaned and dressed the little girl's wounds. The Goon tried to loud-mouth and threaten me. I gave him the finger. The villagers gathered on my side and soon the cops arrived and we handed the bike rider thug to them.When I was around 10 years old,in 1967,the un-touchables in my 'tharavad'(Ancestral home) were fed by asking them to dig a hole in the ground, spread a banana leaf inside and rice-gruel used to be poured into it. I told my mom that if this was continued I would not eat anything. I stayed hungry only for a day. My mom relented and the servants were all fed properly. I have many times while driving my Millineum Falcon(motor-bike) or red maruti ZEN chased after drivers who don't stop after running over animals or humans.
