Different kind of mugging...

We are all used to mugging for exams...and with the Matrix theory midsem on 31st Oct my Sunday was spent mugging for it and watching India waste an excellent start.
I left for IISc at about 7 pm...and experienced for the first time in my life...THE OTHER THING CALLED MUGGING.

As I walked to the bus stop...2 ppl accosted me and spoke in Kannada.
When I indicated that I did not know that language one of them asked me to follow him to "the Station". These ppl were obviously not policemen...so I refused.
Then he grabbed my neck and started pulling me with him as I pushed him away.
He then tried to strangle me and in this confusion we both fell into the gutter by the side of the road.

He apparently wanted my cell phone...I think the other fellow was afraid people might turn up and had already run away. This guy kept up his choking and clawed away at my face with his nails. I punched him a couple of times and pulled him away with his hair.

I will not claim I bashed him up but I did not let him beat me either. He finally managed to pull my Nokia 6030 phone out of my hands but as he was getting out of the gutter people has arrived on the scene. I grabbed his leg to not allow him to get away. The people caught him and I fairly easily convinced them that he was trying to steal my phone as opposed to his claim that I was stealing his phone.

Then came the most 'satisfying' part of the whole thing...seeing the bastard getting bashed up by the public. He lay motionless on the ground not responding to all the punches and kicks flying at him.
I was told to call the police...but by the time i met my aunt and got back to the place where people were holding him down ...the people had grown tired and left and so had that bastard.

I have bruises on my face and had to have an anti-tetanus injection...but satisfied that I did not give in to him.Maybe if I was better built none of this would have happened...I think he realized that " The size of the dog in the fight does not matter...what matters is the size of the FIGHT IN THE DOG."

The Brother summed it up in one sentence as he very often does..." Worried about you,but proud of you."

Well... This was the last thing I had expected you to do... FIGHT !!!
But tell me, when the public was kicking and punching the thief, did u take a shot at him???
Or were you content looking at the public beating him???

i did not take a shot at him once the public started beating him...watching him get thrashed was pleasing enough with no exertion involved.

hmm
no comments....always knew u were a kickass fighter
u shouldve just confuzed him wid some theory on probablility and stochastic processes n he wouldve run away in shock

amazing experience..but i think it wud hv been more satisfying to see the police take the bastard away..why dint you phone the police straightaway when he was being bashed up in ur sight?

i did not have enuf time to even ask his name forget dishing out DSP and PRP.
by the way,IISc has made me realize I know nothing of those subjects.

Your motive of him not stealing the phone was achieved successfully, what abt others or may be even you again!!! Calls for a thought, though I admit I dont know how I would have reacted.
