That, my friends, is how India works. The most important people (VIPs/VVIPs) trample over the “aam admi” (common man). This, in the name of security, is the highlight of the irritation that one faces in India. Why do we have anyone designated a VIP anyway? Why are they important? Why do they get the whole road blocked everytime they move around? Why should the common man have to put up with this nonsense?
If these VIPs have to wade through the traffic, I will bet that the traffic situation in India will get better. It is only because they don’t have to face the music (pun intended) of the honking horns that they are apathetic toward many of the other problems.
