I always wonder why i always sound like OH It was FUN!!! and i always come up with one answer that I am kind of person who enjoys and appreciate the beauty of every bit of life. Or at least want to enjoy and appreciate it. No matters how difficult and critical have been the situations; moments pass through me and leave an impact for years.
Similarly my first lesson of driving was not only a fun but also going to bear a life time impact. I several times tried to learn car, but was not serious as driver was always available to drive me to where i had to go. However the absence of driver left me depending on family members.
I woke up with determination to find a driving school for me, as i never believe your family members can teach you how to drive. That was another reason for me not learning driving for long. However i first asked tweeples to help finding me one driving school. On not getting response unlike twitter, i thought to google. Thanks to this Ginnie called Google found me a school name Diana Driving School; on calling i had positive response from principle Mr. Waseem Butt and then had my first lesson of driving on January 24, 2011.
Instructor has the same enthusiasm i was needing to manage my urge to learn.
I had the same feelings; baby seagull would have had on his first flight. Suddenly the world became wide for him and so was the case with me. I was going through the moments and moments played charm on me. It was wonderful to drive car, not because i wanted to learn driving but also it gave me a feeling this driving skill might help others too. I could drive my mom for grocery, can go to University to see my Department’s dean, and hope to fulfill commitments that are long pending and i have had enough embarrassment due to those.
I always thought women are not good drivers generally, and called these “aunty-corruption” i wish to prove myself wrong.
I wish to be good driver with good road sense and manoeuvrings. I have really bad road sense, and always found people coming to hit me. However today’s experience have given me enough confidence that they have not come out of homes to hit me rather i am out to hit everyone coming my way. (being sarcastic)
I always thought driving needs so much vigilance, single second and you are gone. That is why i feel big responsibility in this regard, as to i am not only responsible for myself but several others who are on road also people in car and i am driving.
However It was a wonderful experience and i am sure in seven more days i’ll be out to face the crazy traffic of Lahore soon.
