The Vengabus

This is now my 9th week in the Garden City. Gr8 place. The bus service here is called BMTC, short for Bangalore Metropolitan Transport Corporation. But this isn't bout BMTC. There's a parallel service of old private vans which run on routes not already taken up by BMTC. So if u want to go from point A to point B and there's no bus from A to B, then u r most likely to get into of these old green vans. Its one heck of an experience traveling in one of these rickety overcrowded little vans. A laborer in his dirt covered dhoti and a IT pro in his full sleeved shirt & neck tie sharing the same wooden bench with a middle aged woman coming back from a shopping spree. That's what I call the Vengabus.
