Traffic Constable

I was walking down the road in Adyar and turned into a smaller street. Four young men on two bikes went past me. They were suddenly stopped by a traffic constable. I could not assess what wrong these four young men could have done. They were on the right side of the road. They had not entered the wrong side of a one way. They were wearing helmets. There were only two men in each bike. The speed with which they crossed me showed they were within speed limits. Then why did the traffic constable stop them. The young men were showing their licence but the traffic constable seemed not contented. The men were then seen searching their pockets. I was almost nearing them when the traffic constable lifted his head and his face showed a change. I looked in that direction and saw a beautiful young lady approach him with a beautiful smile. It was exactly the time when the boys gathered some money from their pockets and turned to hand it over to the constable. “Please sir, this is all we have.” one of the young man was saying. As this beautiful lady neared the constable, I heard him advice the boys not to over speed and also to ensure such mistakes did not happen again. And he let them go. Heaving a sigh of relief at not having been given a fine and that they did not have to part with their money, the young men left, smiling and silently thanking the beautiful young lady.
I heard the beautiful lady ask the traffic constable for some address as I continued my walking.
Wow...what difference a beautiful lady on the road could bring about!!!

The moral seems to be to carry a beautiful girl in the pillion to avoid hassles or to have the purses stuffed.I have seen such harassments happen but helpless we are in the pernicious system we have

That is why we call them' Police"
When ever some silly questions come ,we say.."Oh what is this? even a policeman can do it!"
That is the standard of our police men.

Lol...to some extent its true...beauty can give some + points during a tough situation...but then u know, i have also seen a different situation where a beautiful girl had to suffer unnecassary humiliation by her boss...as her boss always felt tht she would be too arrogant bcoz she was beautiful and to keep tht in control she was always pointed out as wrong or not right...lol!!!

The young men would have thanked God and the lady too. People like the police are also there in the world.
