Indian Transformers : AUTOrickshawBOT
ONEANDHAFF (one and a half) :
In Bangalore autorickshaw parlance, ‘ONEANDHAFF’ (ie pay-me-one-and-a-half-times-what-the-meter-shows ) is a challenge the driver throws at you, signaling the start of a game of Grand Theft by Auto(rickshaw edition).
The probability of you receiving this challenge is directly proportional to :
a) the distance of destination from driver’s ‘comfort-zone’ regions
b) the distance of your state of origin , measured upwards from the Vindhyas
c) the font size of the word ‘SUCKER’ on your face. For really huge font sizes, there’s also ‘DUBBALMETER’.
