I don’t know how I did it, I went towards the side of the road where it was quite broken. Of course I am used to such roads. I turned the car a little over what was a small mound of mud and the fellow in the next car by my side gave me a really alarming look. But by then I had managed to get my car stuck into the deep hole that was next to the mound of mud and was not visible from my angle.
I tried reversing the car out of it and then tried to drive forward. Both didn’t work. I got out of the car and I had panicked a little by then. Then there were two people walking by after their factory shift and I asked them if they had any clue what could I do? They said they can try and push the car out if I switch on the engine and try to reverse the car. Those angels tried and failed. They stood by me and asked for help from others passing by. Two declined and I don’t blame then, the car was really in a nasty hole.
Then there were four people coming towards us and I asked them myself. They gave me an ugly glance (stupid female driver and all that, can’t even see where she is driving, she deserves to be in a hole and we poor folks have to get our hands dirty now) but agreed to try. Once again I started the engine and tried to reverse the car. With six people trying and the car being a light Maruti 800 it came out of the hole!
I thanked them a lot and the crowd moved on. The two men who had stopped originally, I tried to give then some money for all their trouble but they just waved me off!
Note to self- don’t get yourself into a hole in the first place.
