Have you ever traveled in a bus in the city of Chennai? If not, find out what takes place inside one

Typical scenes in a Chennai Bus!

Traveling in a public bus in Chennai promises to be a whole lot of fun. You will have loads of adventure. People travel in foot boards so casually. Most college goers consider it an offense to board a stationary bus. They have to necessarily run and catch the bus only after it goes a few yards from the bus stop.

The conductor, poor guy that he is, has to hand out tickets, at the same time, literally squeeze himself through people to move back and forth within the bus. He has to keep shouting throughout the journey and people hardly pay heed to what he says.

Two or three people have to miss their respective bus stops(for they are too busy sleeping, in case they have managed to find a seat for themselves, or hooked on to their mobile phones)

There are so many different routes within the city of Chennai. Whichever route you take, you are sure to witness a fight. In most cases, it will be a fight between a passenger and a conductor for change or a fight between two passengers for a seat!

Aside of all this, you will be able to see young couples listening to songs on their mobile phones(of course, they have to share their earphones - one ear per person), school kids with bags larger than their own size and a whole lot of other people - vendors, hawkers, office goers and college students.

You just have to travel in a bus and find out for yourselves. Even a distance of 15 kilometers or so will take an hour and a half or a couple of hours, thanks to heavy traffic, roads being dug up due to metro rail construction and rain-affected roads. In short, your entire trip will be fun!
