Sanjay, a rich guy, loved fast cars and he did have a few in his possession. He loved to speed and could not be bothered about breaking speed limits. Many a times he was caught by the cops and speed radars, fined, but still he never bothered until.



One day as he was driving at a very high speed as usual, he saw a cop following him. The cop overtook him finally and asked him to stop and checked his license. He then took out his pad and started



Writing, and then handed over the sheet of paper to Sanjay. How much was this one going to cost?!!!



Wait a minute.



What was this????



Some kind of joke? Certainly not a ticket.



Sanjay began to read:



"Dear Sanjay,



Once upon a time I had a lovely daughter. She was six when killed by a car.



You guessed it - a speeding driver's car.



A fine and three months in jail, and the man was free. Free to hug his three daughters.



I only had one, and I'm going to have to wait until Heaven, before I can ever hug her again. A thousand times I've tried to forgive that man. A thousand times I thought I had. Maybe I did, but I need to do it again. Even now. Pray for me. And be careful, Sanjay, my son is all I have left.



" Sanjay turned around in time to see the cop's car pull away and head down the road. He watched until it disappeared. A full 15 minutes later, he too, pulled away and drove slowly home, praying for forgiveness and hugging a surprised wife and kids when he arrived.



Life is precious. Handle it with care.



Funny how you can send a thousand jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding the sanctity of life, people think twice about sharing. Funny, how when you go to forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they will think of you, for sending it to them.



Pass this on, you may save a life. Then maybe not, but we'll never know until WE TRY

The sad scenario shared by you Sri Manjari it is many times true.

Usually we consider ourselves good drivers, we are sure about our reflexes, vigilance, our cars.
It takes only one second for your world to come upside down. In that second you see your entire life in your mind while you're ruining it or destroying yours or some other person's dreams and right for a life.
Let us think twice before carelessly enjoying the adrenalin of a high speed drive...
I remember something my grandfather taught me when I was little: when you'll learn to drive you'll have to do thousands of times maybe the same road...but it will never be the same. The circumstances are always different: the cars on the street, the weather conditions, your physical or mental state, the road itself...Don't ever be too sure, too relaxed; it can be your fault or someone else you couldn't correct or avoid in time...

Hi Sri,



I can only say this, I would be careful and overspeed from now on.

Oops, I meant, I would be careful and NOT overspeed from now on. Typo.
