Babudom Unleashed

Yesterday night I had my first visit to a police station. Located amongst posh call centres of Noida, with smart executives roaming around, the shabby government building with its babus looked completely misplaced. It was absolutely different from the movies, plenty of mattresses were spread out in the office as the hawaldaars prepared to sleep. As usual the babus dont do a thing without pursuation. Had an argument over the jurisdiction of the police station with respect to the area of the incident and finally my complaint was registered. Now armed with this document, I can get a new license made, but will have to wait for exams to be over, and then it shall be more arguments with the transport department babus.
