The Bi-Cycle

Ever imagined a world in real equal to movie like Spy Kids, which  has got lot of stuff to transport..May be in future they may come I don't know. If there is a machine which can transport me to where ever I like in just click of button ( Just like clik of the mouse button which we do daily !!! Did you ever guess how many times you clik on that fancy instrument :----)

Hope every one likes it to be a time saver and travel in light speed.. Avoid the daily traffic and pollution and the list is endless.

I always cherish the first ever vehicle I started with..Still remember the colour of it.. Bright red and had three wheels to it.. Always there is a hope within me that I will drive the next bigger one soon..

And from there to it was collection of Toy bikes, cars and so on....Play with them and drive it in full speed..

I still remember the Hundi in which I use to save money( Call it Chillara Kasu from 5 paise to 5 Rs). It was Handi-Plast Boy with Thumbs-up with that handi plaster..The spend from that Chillara kasu was worth a infinite happiness. I bought the Herculas MTB Bi-Cycle..It is still a pride for investing in that..

Know what to drive to learn the little piece of machine with out that support wheels and not placing the legs down from the pedal it took me time and with lot of falls in streets..The best is the Hour cycle, friends roaming around the streets with full of fun.. So no more to pay for the Hour cycle..

Still I remember the names of the cycles we used to drive those dayss..Street Cat, MTB, Ranger, SLR. The first cycle with Shock absorbers oh what a feeling to watch those.

It is not only that the races we use to have is all the more fun..The Gandhi Statue in Parry's corner what a landmark for our cycle party. The cyclethon in ECR to Muthukaddu boat house is still in my memory. But me did not cycle, but as kid sitting in the front side of next mighty machine HERO HONDA and just accelerating.( Courtesy : My Babai's Hero Honda CD 100 )

You know what the one of the best  investment I have done is in Investing in a cycle..Very less maintenance cost. 30 min Walk equal to 5-10 min cycling. Very good time saver.. Also keep you in good health. Also release from the Gundu ricksha to school..

Still we prefer those cozy ones which can take us to the places with pride. I mean the Beauty's CARS.

One thing I am seeing here in London is No matter what you are, call it with all the fancy names attached to individuals they still cycle or walk or at the worse use the Public transport. U can see people irrespective of the gender with the old,new and fancy cycles in good condition.. People cycling with Suits, and  Lots more.

I got a mild stroke when I was passing through the Cycle store by seeing the price tag... 2000 pounds OMG if I had so much I thought I would have set up a Cycle store to myself in India.. If not big atleast to start of with.

Wondered how many Handi Plast Hundi would I need to buy this lovely piece of machine with out any fuel in this land.

Love you all...
