I had this interesting experience in New York, when I was there the last time. I was walking down somewhere near East Village when I was passing a construction site. A truck that was backing up into the site was making a huge noise and blowing out a lot of smoke. I happened to be close to it at that point and there was no one else around. I just looked up at the driver with a slight involuntary grimace with no real intent to show any irritation. The driver, a big black man with a menacing moustache looked down at me and turned the engine off. I walked faster trying to avoid his gaze. Not knowing how he would react, I tried to play it safe and just smiled. He leaned out towards me, his face breaking into a massive smile, he said "Sorry Man." I didn't know what to do because a gesture like that is something you will never get to see in India. Having spent most of my life in Bangalore and having grown up in a new locality where construction trucks are common place, an apology from a trucker was something too hard for me to digest. By then I had walked at least 10 yards away from the truck and I kept looking in utter disbelief at this guy who had by now put a hand out. I kept walking and I raised my arms and waved at him. He raised a heavy thumb and took back the hand. The engine began to growl again but this time I was about 100 metres away from the site.
