I just came back from a trip and planned to service ‘SuperTramper’ (my bike). This time, I was at Gurgaon so decided to try the service from well heard Royal Enfield dealer – Kaytee Automobiles. And…….the story begins….
Meanwhile the service was in progress, I was lured by Continental GT and planned to took a test ride. Swiftly, in next 5 minutes I got the hold of that powerful throttle, of course with the RE guy as pillion.
I was enjoying the ride, and about to reveal the power of this new babe in town, when suddenly this stupendously stupid scooter crashed into my bike from behind. Just to mention, the scooter was fully loaded with luggage. BANG! And we were surfing the concrete, all bruised, high on adrenaline and discomforted by sudden nausea.
All were badly hurt, including the scooter guys but me (thanks to my leather jacket – a savior).
So, the police came into picture and this is where the brotherhood proved its mettle. As usual, I was convicted, even though being hit by someone from back side. Only reason: Stinky police guys observed well that I was not hurt in this accident and can pay em some bribe but not those scooter guys, i don’t know why.
So, crazy time began with police calling us every now and then to Police Station and discussing the marvelous ways to bribe them. I was shocked to see how Police Stations are functioning as marketplace where settlements and deals are happening right under the nose of S.H.O (Station house officer). All that jazz….
At a certain point in time, after having 10 or more rounds of Police Station, I gave up and started asking for help. After all I was being incriminated, for no reason at all. And wad pressurized to give money to other party.
And then, YAWHEE! Amit Kaushik, the owner of KayTee Automobiles came to know about all this and jumped into the scene. Despite having no connections with this accident, and leaving his business hours, he came to lend me some support. Eventually, Amit was the one handling this case on my behalf. Guess what? No, the police guys took money for sure, but it was not me who paid for this. And you are right, It was KayTee automobiles that helped me, believed in me as a valued customer ans settled this unreasonable case.
Its been over a month now, but the ‘Client-Delight’ feel is yet alive in me. Thanks Amit and KayTee Automobiles!!
What I learnt from this incident…
Camaraderie. Trust. Stewardship and Love.
