“During law school, I’d travel by buses, I hated crowded buses, mainly because I’d feel unsafe and… I don’t know I can’t find the word for it… it felt like war inside a crowded bus. I mean, taking buses helped greatly in character building and gave me some real humbling life lessons but I HATED crowded buses. Now everyday, morning and noon, I’d wait at the bus stop. I’d skip crowded buses. I’ll take the next one”, I’d think, and wait for the next one. The next one would come, but it too was crowded and I’d skip it. But I had to get to college/get home, and I couldn’t wait forever. AN then intermittently, these brightly coloured private buses would come, You know, the ones with a big baby/prayer hands/tiger/god photos painted at the back. And they were empty. Like faaaaaar emptier than the BMTC buses. But something about them seemed off. So I’d look away and wait some more. And then I’d eventually get on the next bursting on the seams BMTC bus,” the actress says.
She adds, “Today I’m just glad I never got on those private buses and waited for my good old trusty, but crowded BMTC. Oh wait, another reason I didn’t take the private bus was because my BMTC pass wouldn’t work on it and I had to pay from my pocket. Pocket money was real tortue in college guys. Real torture. Cheers to be financially independent.”
Well, the fear remains and we have no solution to it as yet and it is only scarier!
