Me: Hey Hi R....



R: Hi Ponnarasi...Hows u ?



Me: Yeah I am fine.. Long time no c?



R: Yeah I have been to U.K for a short term project....How have you been? Hows Chennai by the way...



Me: Yeap..Good so far. Have been to Chennai this weekend after two long weeks.. : ) I am very sleepy today. Incase I dose off please wake me in our stop....



R: Yeah Sure ..I dont get sleep in the bus :(



After a short conversation ...Snorrr..Snorrrrrr....



Me: Eyes wide open...Sees Mr R sleeping next..Hello R...I guess we have missed our stop.



R: Ah...... yeah..You are right.



After explaining to the driver to stop saying we missed our stop.



Driver: I am told not to stop any where other than the stop....



Scene 2 (At Cafettaria)



J: Pons I need one full Kachori..



Me: No... Lets take one and share di.. I wont be able to finish in 10 minutes



J: No di..I need one full..I am very hungry



Me: Errrrrrrrrrrr... Ok!



J: Hello Slow eater... Eat fast... We have few minutes for the bus.



Me: Thats why I told to take just one.



J: Ok di.. See you tomorrow..



Me: Ahhhhhhhhhhhh..... U ditcher! Get lost.. Bye!



After finishing the Kachori, calling to another friend in the bus. Catch a seat for me..I will be right there now.



Bus friend: Yeah ...You can take your time and catch a seat after an hour in the next bus :D


Yet another 'mokka' post. :D Will try to put some sensible posts in the near future.... Just wanted to update the blog after a very long time. :) Share your bus experiences as well :D to make the post more interesting! :)

Hi PK,

Good to see your post after long time. I was surprised to see only 9 comments, guess because of your gap. But im sure they would be back if u keep updating it regularly...

Now coming to the topic, nice experiences you had. Its a good topic to talk about. Actually everyone would have definitely had some exp with bus. After reading this i recollect one of my experience....

I was studying 2nd yr bsc and was working part time. Office was near music academy. I used to travel by 29c. Once when i was returning from office, i just reached end of street that leaded to main road, i saw the 29c bus crossing. The stop is near chola sheraton which is about 200 - 300m away. I started running to catch the bus. By the time i was near bus started moving. Though i was from pachaiyappas im not used to travel in foot board. There were couple of people standing on the foot board, there wasnt much space to get in. But i was determined to catch it so started running fast, by this time the bus was in good speed. I cross the back door and was aiming towards the front door as that was empty. I ran like a 200m sprint and got into the foot board.... screeeeeeeeeech went the bus. The driver gave a bad look and shouted me to get out. I had no option other to get down and walk all the way back to the bus stop (the bus had gone half way) ha ha....

Hi Ponnarasi...

I just want to ask two things:
1) r u in Infosys ? coz only infy drivers used to give this absolutely useless answers like "i'll stop only on bus-stop". I am not very sure abt other companies :)

2) I used to read Ravi's blog often (http://hisnobelwoes.blogspot.com/) and i saw ur blog listed in his links. Just surprised and wanted to know whether u r friend of Mr.Ravi ? pls do reply.

Thanks.

Nee kazhati vitru :P BTW, did u finish ur kachori? 1 hour vera ena paniruppa!!! ... ;)

And sari- ivlo kekra - solama povena. My Exprnce , I am extra conscious when i travel in bus. But Just very recently one day i missed my stop. I was on the phone with my TL - discussing something serious ;) (YES> SERIOUSLY) and then i notice that am seeing places i have not seen before. I was only looking thro the window when i was talking...but on realising I am seeing new places - i freaked and asked the Lady next to me if named*MY STOP is gone? She said yes..and i ask the driver to stop the bus..By which time my Lead goes "God! what happened ... Did u get down? blah blah ..."

And the whole bus wa stelling me yes yes your stop is gone ..get down.

SHAME SHAME PUPPY SHAME!..i ended up having that horrible *GOTTO SMILE* Smile ;)

I HAVE LOT MORE INTERESTING BUS INCIDENTS- STARTING FROM FIGHTS WITH DRUNK DRIVER, Stupid Conductor, Porukki Co-pasngr, Idiotic ladies, what not... and also some wonderful experiences :)with new friends made while travelling.

Vaazhga BMTC!
