Well, once in a while, it is OK. But I would suggest affording class of people to be away from such an experiment. It kills a lot of one’s time and inconvenience caused is justified by no explanation whatsoever.

I feel like experimenting once in a while to learn closely the problems faced by crowds in the public transport system and their behaviour with co-passengers. Every time I conclude telling myself if such a journey is must, it's fine. But better avoided, if possible.

  1. I also agree to your last statement "if such journey is must,it is OK, but better avoided if possible." But in Big cities like Mumbai, Pune , Bangalore etc.....one have to use different public transport now a day in daily life, as petrol prices have gone beyond common men's pocket.( now, even upper middle class can also not afford).

    I got one SMS, would like to share- For the first time in India "need" "comfort" and "Luxury" are sold at the same price!!!!!!! Onion - Rs 65, Petrol - Rs 65, and Beer Rs- 65.

  4. These are the normal transport available to 'Aaam Adami' and not all can afford the luxury of air conditioned cars and air crafts.

    1. True, Mr Ayyangar.
      Agreed , these are the normal transports available to public.
      I was showing the inconvenience faced by them.
      Actually, person who can afford all the luxuries of life should learn about the troubles faced by Aam Adami.

      Thanks for reading my blog .
