My Sir MV Moment

It was on Thursday, while returning from office. The King-Long volvo that I like, the one with two three seaters came empty at my stop.

The journey upto matunga was fine, but for some strange reason, I sensed that the bus was not able to negotiate the flyovers - its pickup was not upto the mark. Some strange sound, generally the one that you hear in an AC coach of a train deep in the night when its running at full speed, fell on my ears.

I instantly said, "Something's wrong with the engine."

Sure enough - the red light started flashing on the dashboard, and the driver had to switch off, make a check and then resume the journey.

Why is this post significant you ask? Call me sometime, and I'll tell you a similar story involving Sir M Visveswaraya. :D

did Sir MV impress a hot chick sitting besides him with his engineering skills and they got hitched??.
