Yes, its the police again. It may be getting excessive. But what can I say, I take justice seriously; how can I not with the name I have. (The picture below is also taken from a post by Asma, via Saad; see here).

The official title of this photograph suggets that the policeman was trying to humiliate the motorcyclist. My own sense is that is not true. It is much more likely that the motorcyclist is trying to charm the tulla to negotiate his way out of a challan. I say this with some conviction because I have done the same; and gotten away with it.

What do you think? And can anyone suggest a title? A sheyr maybe?

    Well I’ve already commented on the story … but Mariam here is I guess talking about this pic…. it says

    Continuous rain might have forced many to stay indoors, yet these police personnel remain vigilant, braving the elements

    Well I agree while coming to the office in heavy rains I witnessed two three ITP policmen administering traffic rush despite heavy downpour and by heavy pour I mean heavy … so not all tullas are bad … some are really good too :)
