I learnt to drive. Who should I be thanking? the auto-wallahs in Delhi, who made me give up all the excuses for not driving ('I have road fear', 'I don't like to deal with heavy traffic', 'I keep getting confused between left and right').
The driving lessons by themselves were useful only in getting a license. The first day I drove in my (second hand) car I hit the rear end of a city bus. There was a big dent and I thought I will never drive again. But a big thanks to my father, who insisted that I continue driving.
I still have a long way to go, but at least I can drive. I love playing music while driving and even hum along when the traffic is bumper-to-bumper.
