original certificate


When you are getting your driving license renewed in a swank RTO in Hyderabad, there’s a 50-50 chance that you might be asked for a virginal certificate to be submitted. After all, in order to have a driving license renewed you have to be an adult, and who knows what you have been up to. Don’t panic, as I did, though. Now you know, as a Samosapedian, that one of the certificates you submitted is probably not an original. They just don’t like copies in our busy offices, that’s all. In any case, if they really wanted virginal certificates, they’d have a doctor sitting right by the autorickshaw stand, efficiently signing and rubber-stamping certificates by the dozen for a small fee.
