Driver, gaadi chalaao

Filed under: social change — neosurya @ 04:33

I returned from Hyderabad today. Oh, how nice it felt to be driven by someone else for 1200Kms instead of sitting behind a steering wheel. True, driving is a nice pleasure and visiting places in a personal vehicle can let you explore a place in a better way than being driven around. But it sure is nice to have the option of being driven. Also, you leave a lesser carbon footprint by using public travel. I went to visit my in-laws in a Volvo bus. These things of German origin have emerged as current rulers of Indian roads and the premier name in public road travel. Indian road conditions have been completely overcome; pot-holes, rash drivers, un-pliable weather, everything is nullified by the great suspension, beastly horsepower, and well balanced interiors.

Auto from Kormangala to Whitefield: Rs 173.00
Taxi cab from Whitefield to Kormangala: Rs 540
The ability to make calls and write an article while on the road: Priceless.
