A Bus Journey
It was a long wait for the bus. I wanted to travel to my home town. It was festival season. Many people were at the bus stand. Everybody at the bus stand was impatiently waiting for the bus.
After a long wait the bus arrived. Every person charged towards it even before it had stopped. The bus conductor had a great difficulty in guiding the driver to the parking slot.
People were trying to push others to get into the bus. Kids started wailing at their highest pitch. I could not tolerate the difficulty being faced by ladies and kids. I requested people to allow ladies and kids to enter the bus first. Thankfully people understood my request. I was the last to get into the bus. Many people were already standing. The bus started moving.
