This was supposed to be "Road Safety week" in Madurai. This Photo from The Hindu today shows a footboard traveling police man, a real son of the soil.
"In this fast-paced world, who cares whether you practise what you preach"
( for those who cannot read the banner on the left bottom, heres the translation:
Madurai City Police -
Road safety week -dates from 2.1.2006 to 8.1.2006
Do Not Travel In Bus On The FootBoard )
Well, thats nothing new for 'Madura-Poleesu'...We can see police jeeps parked exactly in front of the "No Parking" sign and entering "NO entry" streets. But as they say, somethings can never change...
