    wow..reading it alone is unnerving. I doubt if i would have stopped in the first place. Maybe only after assessing the situation to save my own skin..but im sure i wouldn't have followed him or informed the police.

    You did a really courageous and humane thing there Satyen.

      Good work there Satyen bhaiya, I'm Proud of you! BTW Why didn't you just snatch his keys before you went to the cops? He could have been safer that way ...

      Jokes apart, my Viewpoint is that such people don't get the Background to understand these things. We, many of us were told about Road ethics by our Parents, Friends, etc. But, not everyone is so lucky....

      I mean, given a bad background & exposure, anyone of us could be a Poser like him - You, Me, anyone!

      So, I think such people should be helped whenever you can. It's NOT their mistake they are born in the wrong house/ environment ... Moreover, such people give us reasons to be proud of being bikers, don't they?

      Do reply if it's worth it, after all it's just an opinion ... & my condolences on your friend's sad death....

        Satyen, you have my respect, man!
        I hope that guy is alive and perhaps has some inkling of who probably saved his life, and is grateful for it.

          Given the situation that was a very brave thing you did. Very few people act selflessly in such a situation. I thought I wouldn't see another one. Guess I was wrong. There are many on xBhp.
          My salute to Aryan da and you.

              Satyen: Hats off to you for what you did.

              @aryan: you believe it or not you are.

              PS: Yesterday only i went through the testimonials you have got on your orkut profile, and after reading those, somehow i could not have expected anything less from you. You are really a good human being. Period.

                These kinda threads are the ones' that set apart xBhp from just being another forum.

                @Satyen : That was an extremely brave move to actually go to teh cops with such an incident man. The Pandus can be quite a handful sometimes if they're in a mood to dish out some grumpiness. This act of your's will hopefully set a precedent for people to take that step without fear to help someone.
                We need more people like you man

                @Aryan : Dada.. A closet samaritan too you are eh..?
                I hope i can muster up the courage to do something as selfless as the both of you if and when an incident calls for it...

                  Imagine somebody known lying there man, wouldnt you help him in that case, then why not a stranger! Infact a better question would be if God forbid you are in such a situation and something like that happens, wouldnt you want to see a helping hand.... havent you heard...

                  I thought of that, infact I even contemplated to make good use of the carbon fibre knuckle protectors on my gloves to see if they can leave an impression on his jaw... but frankly I wouldnt have wanted that guy to try and snatch the key from him... can you imagine a 6 ft something and a 100kg something like creature having no sense!... Damn!
                  About the other analogy of the events, man you missed the point by a mile!

                    Though the incident is not directly related to Satyen's incident but is still relevant.
                    Actually a freak incident happened with us yesterday. Pune xBhpians met yesterday at Hotel Rupali on FC Road. When we came out, we found a bag on Naren's RTR. With the several reminders and awareness on abandoned articles, we were sceptical of the bag and enquired around if someone had left that by mistake. Since no one was identified as the owner, we decided to call the police. The bag was untouched but some smart a$$ bystander in a typical "kuch nahi hota" attitude picked the bag and opened it too. A Benq laptop belonging to some Infosys BPO employee (a tag inside) was found. We requested the hotel to keep the bag and return it to the owner should he be back enquiring for it, but the hotel owner refused. We finally handed the bag to the police station.
                    Ideally the police should have been alterted before the bag was touched. The smart A$$ did not obviously worry about himself and nor others. What if it was not a laptop inside...what if it was something more dreadful...I hope all of you understand what I mean!

                      great thing u did man though not many would do due to fear of Police harassment n all .besides im very scared of drunk ppl , even if i stop the momet i see the person is drunk i would've run away coz drunks act crazy n what if they stab u or somehing

                      i think u could have turned his petrol lock to off n pull pipe away n ran so he doesnt ride

                            Thats a pretty freaky incident man! I mean look at Mumbai today, exaclty 1 month after the incident, people have "moved on" waiting for another day for another set of mad men to come and kill us... then do a morcha, a mumbai bandh and some peace rallies... and then the same cycle continues! Sigh!

                            People freak when a security guard frisks them, they are ignorant about other commuters et all!
