The bullet and the rosary

The bullet and the rosary – would that not make a good name for a book?
(Apparently Google doesn’t think anyone has written that book yet. Maybe I should.)
The Royal Enfield bullet has been a motorbike of every young Indian man’s dreams – me included. The chrome, the thump, and the no-nonsense build. As a kid, I used to be so in awe of the loud machines that rode past my house. Now in a city that is louder, the glint of steel, and the steady deep noise of an approaching bullet still makes me turn. And watch.
I’m buying one. That’s on top of my to-do list right now.

I thought of saying 'boys and their toys', but a Bullet makes me salivate too.

AP: Boys' toys indeed. My current obscure object of desire is a chrome and white lambretta with a blue tinted headlamp. *wink wink.;)

usha: It was deliberately burnt. Was experimenting with exposure compensation, and reflection off of the waterbody gave me an idea.
nice that you noticed. :)

heh? did you mean silly girl magnet or a silly girl magnet? :D
