Unity in diversity

You know people on the street are looking at you.

You know what you're going to do is incorrect.

Both legally and morally.

Then, how do you hide? How do you make sure you don't suffer afterwards?

You assume no one is looking at you and commit the crime.

You take care not to look at the offended in his eye.

You even turn your face away neglecting the poor fellow who has to run for his life.

Slowly but surely, you learn to ignore your inner voice too.

That's the best way not to keep the guilty feeling for a long time.

It's the only way you can rule the roads.

The roads may change, the language and colour of people's skin may change.

The approach will not.

If you have guessed it correctly, it's the great Indian common man called auto-rikshaw driver.
