Police

As a kid I always fancied to don the Role of police
I visualised police as a superman who can tame any bad guy with ease
I believed only God and policeman can protect us from thieves

I grew up from Kid to Youth and onto Adult
As I grew up stage by stage Innocence in me
started melting step by step

My Good Image of Policeman started diluting
Fearless kid grew up as fearful Adult
Stories of beatings and tortures inflicted on criminals
by policeman encircled my mind
I felt policeman are truly monsters in the guise of human beings

Though clean handed I developed a fear phobia when ever I see a policeman on duty
Peculiarly fear factor is partial
While riding the vehicle I fear the traffic policeman dressed in white uniform but will not
fear the policeman dressed in khaki
While walking on the street I fear the khaki dressed policeman and not the traffic policeman

Common man while visiting police station feels uncomfortable as long as he is in the station
Policeman inside police station appears more aggressive and strict then outside
Their Tone of talking makes you feel guilty of a crime that you haven,t committed

Some policeman commanding the backing of politicians behave rude
some policeman are very polite and gives an impression that you are safe in their hands
some policeman study the back ground of the man and treats him accordingly

I need to acknowledge the fact that Policeman work under trying situation
They have to dance to the Tunes of the politician
Tough policeman takes lot of personal beating if dont toe the line of politicians
Dubious policeman blindly act according to the whims of the politicians to be in good books
Some Policeman be the helping hand for small favours

Policeman free from clutches of politicians can create wonders and wipe out the crimes in society
because most of the policeman are duty conscious and are truly messiah of common man
