Goin’ Commando

Goin' Commando!Since the terrorist attacks of a few years ago, there has been an increase in the number of Special Forces type police and military around the city. We were behind these two on the way to school one morning, and a colleague of ours took this shot through the bus window (thanks Marc!!). When we passed them up later on the route, we saw that the fronts of their shirts did indeed have “Mumbai Police” stitched on them.

It seemed to be a driving lesson of sorts, as the guy in back seemed to be trying to teach the guy in front how to operate a motorcycle. He almost banged into a couple of vehicles, but they were off on their own way before we saw any serious damage.

Interestingly, there is actually a law in Mumbai requiring motorcycle drivers (but not passengers) to wear a helmet, and there are always scathing editorials about the police not leading by example. I guess going commando really does mean no headgear, in any context!
