A Monday

It was a bright morning. It was a Monday yet it was a bright morning! I should have sensed the eeriness right there. I took the bus to the metro station like everyday. To my surprise, the bus had reclining seats and an AC that worked! This was going to be a great start to the week. Or, so I thought.

I hopped on to the bus - extremely happy - that I just had to pay 5 bucks for this joyride to the metro! We went past the villages and the barren land. I saw how everything around me felt like a Friday evening. Calm and blissful, as if to welcome the weekend. Suddenly I felt a jolt from nowhere!

A UP Roadways bus had collided into my dream-bus! All I saw were pieces of glass scattered all over the place. You can call me selfish, but I really didn't bother to check if everyone was fine. It was 8.40 and I was still in Sector 49! As everyone got down in a frenzy, I took a moment to figure out what had exactly happened. It seemed that the other bus' brakes had failed and it rammed into the sidewalk after colliding into our bus. The driver was stuck in there and people jumped on to the bus to rescue him.

Some were waiting to hit him hard. Yes, it is the land of the Gujjars! :P

As I walked away from the site, I imagined how an English Literature teacher would have interpreted this scene! Life is beautiful at first, then as you move ahead, reality hits you hard (read: An ugly Roadways bus). People suffer out of no fault of their own.(read: the roadways bus driver). You see others suffer because of someone else's fault(read: the passengers on the last seat). Suddenly you no longer have the luxuries in life (read: The AC Bus) and you have to toil hard for yourself (read: Walk endlessly until you find an Auto). Such is life!

And then I found an Auto. Life was blissful again. I reached work on time and it is 5 now! Time to leave! :D As I get ready to go back home, I offer my prayers to the Almighty -- Bhagwan bacha lena aaj! :S
