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?

    The smirk on rider’s face is telling me that he did something naughty ;).

    On another note; Nadeem F. Paracha presents an enjoyable list of books and magazines every present-day Pakistani must own.

    The police man’s perspective:

    hukm-e-hakim hai ke is mehakma-e-adl ke beech
    dast-e-faryaad ko ooNcha na karay koi faryaadi

    yet another one:

    chalaan ho chukaa tou meiN ne kia sawal
    kis cheez ki kami thi meray kaaghzaat meiN
    ‘aata nahiN nazar tujhay’ ye police ne kaha
    ‘ik das ka note kam hai teray kaaghzaat meiN’

    one more from the motorbike rider’s perspective :)

    gunaah kaa apnay motarif hooN ye iltejaa hai pakbaazo
    karo mujhay sang-saar lekin gunaah ki dastaaN to sun lo
