Earlier I wrote a Post on Indian Police with the Title Real Beggars of India.But Sometimes they comes so hard at you that you have no choice but to give them some money and make them leave your way
I had many encounters with Police and most of the time I was on the right side but still they were coming so hard at me.But as I was on the right side I did stand them and at last I ended up paying nothing to them.This post is about two incident that I faced back in my Engineering Days and co-incidentally both took place at the Railway Station .
Things I learned–
- Know the rules and regulations of the state or place you are visiting.
- If you are right never hesitate to fight.
- No matter how hard it is never end up paying Money.
- Always remember any Government Officials are Public Servants.
Though I am posting the incident as Cartoon I hope it is able to convey the situation I faced… 🙂
1.Me and My Girlfriend at Guwahati Railway Station:-We were there to book my return ticket from Guwahati to Bangalore and a RPF(Railway Protection Force) Constable thought they we were fleeing,there was a heated argument of about 15 minutes.And it all came to an end after the intervention of a Lady Constable:-
2.Me at Rangia Railway Station:-I faced a Assam Police Officer in this station asking for PRC(Permanent Residence Certificate). Even in this situation also I had an argument and He also threatened me of not allowing to continue my travel.
Very unfortunate situations 😦
Indeed it was unfortunate…But I was glad that I was able to prove my point and not end up paying anything to them..
Thanks for dropping by and sharing your views.. 🙂
Harsha: What is “fleeing?” Does it mean to elope? If so, why would someone stop you from getting married if you were not underage? Isn’t it up to both of you – a choice?
Yes it does means eloping..You know there are some officials who take their job to Harass Public and get money form them and nothing else..just because of a Bunch of such officials the whole Indian Police Dept. is in black shadow…they think the know the Law more than anyone else..
BTW Theresa…We were not eloping..I was going to book my ticket and that incident happened.. 🙂
It’s good that you stood up, generally when one does so, they shout at you like anything.
Great cartoon depiction. Although would have loved to see how you argued upon the first one, on “fleeing charges” 🙂
Hahahaha…Ok Fine here is the argument…In case you read it..He asked whether I was fleeing to which I politely said No but the he again questioned Why I was in hurry,to which I said the counter is about to close and I have to book my ticket,to which he said that means you both are eloping I got angry and said the lines I wrote in the cartoon about age and all and he charged me with his Lathi,But I got hold of his hand and said If you hit me you will be in real trouble as you don’t have any proof against me and there is no charges against me either..People surrounded us and I was screaming loudly at him and also got the support of the people..As it was getting more heated a Lady constable came and cooled down the matter..That’s it and I was very happy that I stood my for right.. 🙂
It was great that people came in and supported you. and Glad that the matter didn’t took any further turn.
Harsha what is it in your looks that attracts policemen?
Hahahaha..They gets attracted to my DEcent Looks…. 😉
This is so ridiculous….. Thanks for sharing the encounters……
Indeed an experience to be remembered… 🙂
Thanks for Dropping by.. 🙂
It is indeed very unfortunate that those whom we trust as the protectors should put us in such volatile situations. Yes, there are some black sheep in all cadres and police too have them who spoil the image of all police community.
Yes indeed because of some Policeman the whole community gets the Bad look…BTW My experience also include some Honest officer and I salute to them..
Thanks For your comment Fayaz.. 🙂
I have never faced the wrath of policemen ever in my life but I wanna know how it feels like to irk tough men like them.As weird as it may sound but I really have this crazy wish to miff them 😛 I love your doodles Harsha! Always on-point 🙂 And good luck with the ‘eloping with your girlfriend’ 😀
Hahaha..I wish you all the best in irking those in Khaki but remember when you do so always be to the point and hold some valid points… 🙂
And There is no chance of eloping as far as I see because right now things are going great… 🙂
Haha I will see to it 🙂 And really happy for you 🙂
Thanks a lot… 🙂
And I wish you all the best.. 🙂
That stupid police man should have known that issue of prc in Assam is stopped since 1984. Only for educational purpose it is provided which can be used at times of admission in educational institutes.
…….Another nice one from you
Ya Indeed you are right…Some Policeman just want excuses and ways to get some money…BTW Thanks a Lot Bedanga..
Glad you like it.. 🙂
I used hate the police with a passion like everybody else.. Why? Because i was made to do a frog jump w\hile i was in Manipur that too on broad daylight just because we were laughing.. I hate them police
Hahahaha..Frog Jump and you did that,I wonder why didn’t you protest as you did nothing wrong..These guys simply know that common people fear them and they take advantage of it…
This is ridiculous in the name of doing duty.
Great sketch work. You are talented.
Indeed in the name of duty they just Harass people and mint money form us..
Thanks a Lot Indrani for appreciating.. 🙂
Of all human on Earth you preferred these to mess with?
Hahahaha..Ab kya kare inse panga lene ka maza hi alag hai… 😉
A message with some concerns on the system .. well jotted .. loved the doodle and lyrics … boss n all 🙂
Thanks a Lot… 🙂
Indeed this system is only for harassing Common People as far as I have experienced…
If you do manage to elope later, you can consider that first officer as the soothsayer 😀 I have had less experiences with cops, but who knows what is to follow 🙂
Hahaha..But I guess I don’t have to take that route,Coz right now everything is going fine.. 🙂
And Good Luck to you in advance in case come across any cops… 🙂
bitter truth depicted in fun cartoon. good illustration Harsha.. 🙂
Thanks A Lot Meera.. 🙂
Indeed reality of today’s Indian Police.. 😦
hahaha prc is not a thing to wear as necklace..he mustve been pissed when u said that?? lol nice post buddy 🙂
Hahahah he indeed got pissed when I said that.. 🙂 and I was so happy to see him in that situation…atleast I was satisfied.. 🙂
🙂 Well .. blame the entire system .. Cops are just a part of the system .. a job worth respecting has been degraded due to quota system in such jobs ,low salaries,bribery and the entire system going corrupt ..
What we are .. we make a society out of it.
Yes Nitesh the entire system is corrupted so much that we just can’t get any good out of it..and It goes on.. 😦
Oh wow. I never knew that about India. I’m always learning new things everyday!
I hope you are not learning bad things about India…As you know a coin has two sides likewise every country has some Good and Bad..
I hope you visit India someday and get to know its good sides..
All in All India is a very Good Country.. 🙂
And see I told you Learning is a Life time process.. 🙂
One of my college friends was from India, my grade classmate was from India….I’m always watching Indian movies on tv. Someday I’ll check out India and look at the many gorgeous sari’s in the stores. Keep up the great blogs my friend!
Hmm….That means you know a lot about India..It is really good to know that..And as far as Sari is concerned they are indeed very gorgeous..and I wonder if you have tried one as you said you had friends from India.. 🙂
I used to have friends from India, but we have lost touch since then. After watching Slumdog Millionaire, I’ve searched high and low for a yellow scarf, but found out it was made just for the actress. I’ll just have to take matters to my own hands and make my own with a silk yellow material from a local Indian store. There is a Bizarre here that sells a lot of Indian items. 🙂
Hmm..Then I would suggest you take up the matters in your hand get your own silk saree..Infact Silk is the most widely used material for saree in India and also there are different types of Silk from different parts of India..And I guess you will love it..:-)
When r u planning to elope with her 😉 looks like ur learning a lot on the laws
Hahaha…. haven’t fixed a date a yet..But as soon as I fixed the Date there will be a post on my blog.. 😉
And Yes Living in a country like India makes you learn lots of Laws..
They inspire no confidence as law protectors most of the time. Nice cartoons I can imagine what it would have been like!
Yes your are very true…
They Never try to put law to good works instead will never hesitate to harass public..
Thanks for dropping by.. 🙂
Indeed They are…
Thanks for Dropping By.. 🙂
