After 10 minutes of driving we come to Nakku Chawk.

– Can you please, turn right?

The driver turns to the opposite side.

– This is the same road.
– Ok.

Two minutes later.

Taxi driver:
– This is the wrong road?
– Yes! Can you please turn around?

The car turns around and goes down the Ring Road.

– Are we going to Nakku Chawk?
– No, we passed it already.

– Yes.

After getting to Nakku Chawk.

– You said it will be 200 rupees – here is 210.
The driver waves his head showing that the amount is incorrect.
