The Pink Pajero

by afatqiamat

His Pink Pajero cruised along leisurely with mobile phone in his hand gummed to his ear. He was not looking anywhere but enjoying the abandoned pleasure of the intoxicating Power, Money, and Glory.

A small Suzuki blurted a horn asking no pleading to let it through with a non chalant glance, he felt pity and gave a little room, Suzuki squeezed herself barely avoiding hitting the footpath and trundled along.

He had a hearty laugh. Now where am I he thought….? Just before Bundu Khan on Dubai Chowk Lahore.

Damn it… I will have to turn a whole 20 more yards to go to the Flats… he thought….

Are you still there….?? A sweet voice asked from the cell phone which was still glued to his ear. 

Yes yes … I am still here…. wait I will be coming in the evening…..Ha ha ha… he replied back on the phone…

Just round the corner …on the right was Rahim Store… his Pink Pajero kept on cruising… and with one hand on the steering and the other glued to his ear….He laughed once again at something that entered his ears.

The Old Man wanted to cross the Road, his grand daughter just 10 year was with him…Damn the No 3 wagon… again it stopped just in front of him blocking his view , and he again could not cross over .

He was on his way back to his home brought some stuff from Rahim Store and how wanted to get back quickly… the little girl was anxious too… she too did not like the over crowded semi bus stop .. Environment around…

… Kababchi at the Bundo Khan… wearily…. kept waving the hand fan on the Kebabs …placed on the grill….. he eyed the Pink Pajero with a wishful thought in his eyes…… and reverted back to the kebabs…

.. Suddenly the Little girl shrieked…. she fell down with a thud….and started crying….. Although the impact was not much…. Just a little touch…. But it scared her… it scared the hell out of her…. Her grandfather too ..went into a shock…..

The Pink Pajero…. in order to go to the Flats has turned right…. the wrong way….. Instead of going the proper way…. to the left and then just 20 yards or so…to the opening so that it could have turned properly
But….. The intoxication of Power, Money, Greed, and best of all a New Pink Pajero was too much… and what the hell about the road rules and road safety….. what’s wrong in going the wrong direction… to reach a minute or two early……..since the speed was slow…. just crawling… so it did not did much harm
Just a little nudge to the little girl…… and that stupid blind girl can’t she See that “MY Pink Pajero” is coming…… cursed the Fat White Salwar Qamiz …. Kulf Laga Huwa…. Goon looking Seth….wearing black colored glasses……the proud owner of the Pink Pajero….

… Suddenly…. crowd gathered along his Pink Pajero……What the Hell…?? Why are they all around my Pink Pajero…..? Damn it…… I will have to shut down the cell phone…. …these ignorant blubs…..cant they see its “ME and My” New Pink Pajero”…

.The little girl kept on crying… now the crowd was all around them…. no one coming near …..But murmuring something… may be cursing the Pink Pajero Wala….or the Old Man and the Child….But it was not their fault….. They were looking the right way….. It was the Pink Pajero…. which came from behind….the wrong way.

……After a couple of Minutes…..the Proud Driver of  The  Pink Pajero…..opened the door….and stepped down from his Pink Pajero….. A cursory glance over the crowd….and then at the crying girl……. he could not understand why she was crying……
Then just to make sure….. He came forward….. Looked at the Bumper of his Pink Pajero……found no scratch….on it… heaved a sigh of relieve……So there is no dent on the bumper of “My Pink Pajero”…..and its Ok…..But why are the moron…all around me…

…… He put back his mobile……looked around for any intelligent face…..and asked….

“Kee Hooyaaa…….(What happened?!).””
