Highway to hell
At last I managed to pester my dad to allow me to drive the car on the highway on the way back from Vellore today. It was a few kilometers past Rathnagiri and I took hold of the wheel, and depressed the accelerator and roared down the road, and was nearly doing eighty in the third gear. Dad screamed at me to stop and drive more slowly, and I accelerated slower. Then he gained confidence in me and let me progress up to a 100 kmph. He kept up with a running commentary which was a little irritating, but then one can't have the best of everything. It was just short of Sriperumbudur when he took over from me again.
Please always wear seat-belts while travelling in a car if it is available. People just don't know how useful it is.
