"Paul Gomra ka Scooter" [Paul Gomra's scooter] is a work of huge contemporary relevance by the eminent Hindi writer Uday Prakash. The story’s eponymous protagonist is a Hindi poet who works with a Delhi-based newspaper. Paul Gomra
was originally born as Ram Gopal Saxena but the cultural space and time rated it as quite a dated and lower class name. With time, our hero fell prey to the waves of socio-political change and ‘Pal’ gave way to Paul. Next was the turn of ‘Ram Go’ which became ‘Gomra’. With this revamped identity, begins his struggle to adapt to the socio-political backdrop of today’s India. With this new and modern tag of ‘Paul Gomra’, our hero takes a big stride and buys himself a scooter. But the dilemma remains as he doesn’t know how to ride it. Thus, he works out a solution and locates a man who would ride it to work with Paul as the co-rider. One night, Paul Gomra delivers a lecture at a high-end literary event where he describes a scooter as a revolutionary medium. He mentions that while Delhi would soon glide into oblivion, the newer Gurgaon is here to persist. On their way back home that night, the scooter meets with a mysterious accident but our man disappears after 72 hours.
