Driving blues

I have been practicing driving for the past week or so. Not that I dont know how to drive. I do, at least theoretically. I have even had a driving licence since the year I was 19(which I earned by giving a proper test). But sadly till date my driving licence has been used to ride trains(as ID proof) rather than to drive those light motored four wheeler automobiles like it was supposed to do.

For some reason, I never felt ok driving on roads. Maneuvering the car is the easy part. Its the whole contorted thing called gear that gets me. First of all, i can never remember when to move the stick and in which direction. Even if I do, it never behaves properly. As a result, my car has had some very interesting experiences like going on 25 kmph on first gear, as well as on fourth.
In my defence, I maintain that it is very difficult to drive in NCR where nobody seems to be aware of traffic rules.

Also, did I mention the horribly high decible leveled noise which keeps distracting me?? No no, I am not talking about the noise on the road. As soon as I take control of the steering wheel, ksh assumes the role of a super mean driving Guru. The only instruction I dont get is to keep breathing..

See, its not my fault that I dont drive..
