When a fear becomes so severe that it disrupts daily life, it is known as a phobia. A phobia is an excessive and irrational fear of an object or situation. Symptoms can include dizziness, a sense of unreality, or a fear of dying. More than 10% of the U.S. population suffers from some type of phobia, making it the most common mental disorder in the United States.

Well, I do not know how to tell a story about my phobia, but I certainly have a phobia at this juncture of my life when I am trying to lead a retired life at Pune, Maharashtra State, India, which is not the hometown of my early years, but one that I chose to settle down in! That phobia is a ?fear of meeting with an accident? on the roads of Pune wherein about a million and half of two-wheelers (motorcycles and scooters) and another half-a-million three wheelers (auto-rickshaws) and four wheelers (cars, trucks and buses) ply every day on poorly maintained roads with bad road lights and traffic signals that often do not work. Add to that is the problem of indiscipline on roads by the vehicle drivers with their dangerous, nay, reckless driving, that puts one?s life and limb at great risk. I am always afraid that someone will knock me down on the road and that the injury that I suffer may cause permanent disablement or even death. Hence, every day I pray for the safety of self and my family while moving on the road. Still my fears do not get assuaged!
