[140 words] Red Helmet

Javeed contemplated whether or not to buy that “Red helmet” - it meant one less movie with Nazira this month. Anyways, the need for it was highly overrated as he always rode at a menial 60 kph - a shame to his green Unicorn bike.

The headlines read “Lorry runs over couple” along with a gory picture of a couple against a green Unicorn bike – juices from their skulls substituted the “Red Helmets”.

“Javeed(26) and Nazira (24), were rendered victims yesterday night, when a Lorry driver from the wrong side of the road made a grave error of judgment. The couple was reported to be heading to a theatre. The driver who had fled the accident-site is being traced by the Police of Saidapet district”, says ACP” - Sidelined a cold Newspaper column, as a futile reminder to “Future Javeeds”.
