The First Day...
Well it has been quiet some time since I wrote, this is something that has caught my eye in the recent times.
Well to begin with my office shift timings have changed for me since i started working on this project, the management says I have to work on overlapping times. Wow not bad considering the fact that I will be getting a bit more money as the shift allowance. Well to get on with the story I work usually till mid night everyday. After which I take my car go for a drive along the mount road or currently known as anna salai, and from there through Nungambakkam and then home, near Nelson Manikam road.
Well on this particular day I was feeling terribly hungry and about 12:30 in the night, it is very hard in chennai to find a descent place to eat. well I was searching for one and driving very slowly, and it so happened that all the places were closed. I was loosing hope when I reached nungambakkam a police guy stopped me. This was the first time that such an incident was occurring to me.So I stopped the car and brought down my windows, Before i could ask him "what happened officer?" , he had opened the read door and was looking inside. I did not understand. Then he was like asking me where i was coming from, I showed him my company ID and told him that i was coming back from work. Actually when he asked me he had come very close to me. I was wondering why, then he asked me to blow, that is when i realised that he was checking if i was drunk. Well then he left me off. I had just taken a turning when i saw a number of ladies dressed up and waiting on the road. I saw a car stop near then and a lady getting into the car and leaving.
That is when I really started noticing. There are a number of dark corners on the roads where there are a number of ladies standing. Prostitutes or some college students having a one night stand for a bit of pocket money.Has our country come down to this where is girls from families come out to make money for their expensive life style and in the process satisfying their carnal desires? There were two kinds of ladies who were standing on the road sides. One was the professional kind who are just sex workers and the other the one I mentioned above. I can understand Prostitutes they are making a living out of it. but what about these young college going women? and these people are standing in public and making themselves available to the general public for a few thousands.
One of my friends while travelling like this he stopped the car thinking he would give lift for some girl thinking she was there waiting for an auto or something. Well she came across to him and asked him, "how much?", what??? She was showing off her assets, and she told him 5000. He was shocked. He just drove off. Is it that simple to get a lay in chennai?
Well coming back I then realised why the police man had stopped me and checked the rear set. He was checking if i was taking some girls along. But only thing is that there are people that stand right under their noses and they are aware of it, or is that they are ignorant of it?And when I reached home I was still hungry. I could not find a place to eat, but there are other things that are available that you can use to satisfy your desires in chennai, but food? Well that is Chennai for you!
