Motoring journalism is not as easy
as it seems. Every rookie just out of college thinks that auto journalism means
zipping around town driving the best of vehicles, travelling around the world
and getting behind the wheels of some of the most fascinating cars in the
universe. As for the motorcycle and scooters, they feel it’s all about feeling
the wind in your hair!
No, auto journalism is a
serious business. We drive and we ride and then we review the vehicle and write
and talk about it. We spend sleepless nights thinking about the location where
to shoot a vehicle, we hope that the sun hides its hot face behind some dark
clouds to get the right lighting for our camera, we pray that the rain gods don’t
spoil our day by pouring their hearts out and we also hope that no person
drives too close to our new vehicle and crashes into us.
Then we have the stray dogs,
the vagabond cows, multitude of people walking aimlessly and a road that is
filled with pot holes of all shapes and sizes. Despite our serious business of
reviewing vehicles, it will not be fair to say we do not enjoy our work. We
love our work, we love driving and riding vehicles, we love taking a video of
it and we love taking pictures with our expensive cameras. But we also have
moments when we cannot but help but smile. There are loads of funny incidents
that happen when we are out. That lightens the moment for us and we kind of forget
our stressful moments. This short video encapsulates those light moments (all
bloopers) and then we realise how beautiful this world is! P.Tharyan, Editor, Motown india
