Some more from my cycling egroup

Member A:

Is there some pooja to avoid being hit by vehicles?  Last one month I
have had 4 accidents on bangalore roads, none serious though

Member B:

We should all seriously consider performing Mrityunjaya homa (for long life), Kala-sarpa dosha homa (if you have killed a snake in this or a prior life), Nava-graha homa (if saturn/shani is in the wrong house in your horoscope), and most importantly tie the following in front of your bike:

  • an alum stone,
  • a pumpkin with the face of a demon to remove nazar/evil eye
  • a lemon
  • a green chilly
  • a coconut
  • a snake gourd (have not seen this one, but what the heck if you have all the above what harm will a snake gourd do, right?)

After doing all of the above, please make sure you get a monthly Volvo bus pass and travel on it very frequently. Live happily :-)
