There is the limitations of human thought which prompted Shakespeare to write “ there are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” – Hamlet (1.5.167-8), Hamlet to Horatio. I had no idea that there can be so much limitations of my thought until I stumbled upon the news item this morning that Three brothers who are—a marine engineer, a doctor pursuing a masters in surgery attached to a reputed hospital in Navi Mumbai, and a student of hotel management could have their father a gang leader of a tak-tak gang and the prime accused in a Rs 2.5 lakh theft case . This impossible father is also wanted in connection with a Rs 1.6 crore ATM theft case in Dharavi, Mumbai.
The most common modus operandi of the tak-tak gang involves knocking on a car’s door on the pretext of informing the driver about “oil leakage” or an accident. The moment the driver rolls down the glass of his window, other gang members engage the driver and flee with valuables, especially high-end mobile phones.
In another case, a stranger had knocked on woman’s car’s door saying he had noticed oil leak from her vehicle. She told cops that when she got down from her car to check, an unidentified man stole jewellery and cash lying on the backseat and fled. Earlier this month, cops arrested four accused, including the father here under discussion, while they were in the midst of conspiring to commit another theft.
This news shocked me like anything, I cannot reconcile that a thief can have such sons who are doctor, MBA, and a marine engineer. We have learnt children learn to behave by imitating their parents, then how this big criminal had children that grew up to be so much responsible people.
This world is full of wonders, there is no end to it. There is no single formula to define the world, it is full of surprises—at every turn something new may reveal. Perhaps that is why I find the world so curious, so much worth living !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
