Being a college student in delhi,the mode of transportation (atleast for me) is usually a bus….now here we have two types of buses,the private(blue line as they’re called) and the D.T.C…the D.T.C buses offer bus passes fer students which i had got made sum time back….anyway,waiting fer a D.T.C bus to get back to my place is quite a headache and dun have much patience to wait that long,so usually hop onto one of the private ones…..yesterday,wasnt a very pleasant journey..it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to get back home depending on the traffic…to pass my time in the bus if am travelling alone and wise ass is not with me or anybody else fer dat matter,i carry a book along or music…so anyway,back to what i was saying…i hopped onto one of the private buses(1stly cuz it was empty and i got place to sit,2ndly wudnt have to wait fer eternity fer a dtc bus to come) so i get my ticket etc…and take out my book to read,the female sitting next to me also happened to be a college chick from the university…and started making conversation…i couldnt really continue reading my book so put it away….on the way home,the bus usually passes 2 college(which are very famous fer fights during student union elections),these dudes had gotten on the bus and were as always showing off the new cell phone one of the gang members had purchased…till this place the bus was kinda crowded….2 minutes after the guy got onto the bus all of them are screaming at the bus driver to stop the bus and since ur a passenger u get to hear sum excellent words…so ya,this wannabe dude’s phone was stolen on the bus itself..and smart ass got off the bus with his friends thinking that the robber got off at the previous stop….the robber wasnt alone and had an accomplice..so after these smart asses got off the bus these guys get off at the next stop…dats when the whole bus realised that sumthin was wrong…the people who were standing had been robbed…people’s wallets were missing,cell’s were stolen etc…then the lady sittin next to me points out at these two men walking past the bus and says”he’s switching the phone off,,how smart these robbers are…” to which i asked her why she never opened her mouth when she knew who the robbers were……she remained silent…and didnt talk fer quite a while..so i take out my book and start reading again…she got off at the same stop as mine and while i was walking down she comes running up to me and says”the reason why i didnt open my mouth is cuz these guys stole my phone and when i di try to retaliate they threatened me with a knife….i cudnt say a word to her cuz i knew she wasnt lying….
this is just an instance of what goes on while travelling…at times i feel i’ve learnt a lot thanks to college being far away from home…the only problem being travelling the distance takes up lotsa time…..
so its 1 a.m and my eyes are almost shutting….glad i cud write this post….am gonna hit the sack now…
goodnight y’all…cheers!!! the weekend is finally here!!!!
