Shillong Jottings

No parking or VIParking?

The parking pandemonium is a nightmare for any-four wheeler owner, while it reaches the peak in streets of Khyndai Lad as they continue to grapple with a parking predicament of epic proportions.
One has to cruise through the MUDA complex in search of that elusive parking spot and if luck is on your side, you might just snag a space.
However, if you are an important person, or with an additional adjective ‘very’, then wherever you park, it is your own parking spot — who cares about the not-so-important citizens?
This Shillong Jottings member stumbled upon a scene wherein not one, not two, but three cars brazenly hogging the main road at the Khyndai Lad rotary. And what do you know? The traffic police, guardians of order and sanity on our roads, were right there, turning a blind eye faster than you can say “parking violation,” while all the vehicle locks vanished into thin air.
Because who dares to cross paths with the almighty important persons?
Shillongites, when in doubt, just park like you own the place, but only if you can use the adjective.
