5 Reasons Why You Should NOT Wear A Helmet

5 Reasons Why You Should NOT Wear A Helmet

Do you hate wearing a helmet? Do you find it irritating because it messes up your hair or feels hot? Then, here’s giving you five more reasons NOT to wear your helmet!

  • You are insured by God

Forget commercial insurance policies, believe in the blessings of the Almighty! You are God’s chosen one. You have His blessings that you shall never meet with an accident. It’s a different thing that almost 50,000 people lose their life every year due to head injuries in traffic incidents. But, that shall never happen to you! You are special.

  • Helmets are uncool

The idea of wearing headgear is as old as mythology itself. It is ok for Krishna and Ravana to wear helmets made from pure 22 carat gold as their horses are unreliable. But, we are in the 21st century; it’s very uncool for us to wear something like that!

  • Helmets hamper intelligence

Did you ever see the great intellects of the world wearing a helmet? Albert Einstein never wore one. So why should you? Wearing helmets for prolonged periods of time can damage your grey cells and make you dumb. So please don’t wear one if you wish to remain intelligent!

  • You’re planning to renounce the world

This is the strongest reasons of all. If you are planning to give up all worldly possessions and become a monk soon, you don’t need to wear a helmet at all.

  • You don’t want to be laughed at

If your friends don’t wear a helmet, obviously you don’t want to be the odd one to wear one and then be ridiculed and laughed at. Instead, follow your friends and do what they do.

Well, jokes and sarcasm apart, dear reader, we can’t stress the importance of wearing a helmet enough! “Over 2 lakh people are disabled by head injuries due to traffic accidents”, says Dr Sreenivas M, Consultant Neurosurgeon at CARE Hospitals, Hi-tech City!

A helmet may be uncool, irritating and hampering your hair style; but IT IS A MUST for anybody who rides a two-wheeler. Don’t ignore it!
