Its a BUSday !!


It is said that public transport is the best way to get the feel of that place.Well that is what i am doing from past few weeks. I take bus for my school which drops me there in 1-2 hours time including a bus transfer.
So to begin with the journey, getting a whole day pass for $3.50 is better idea then paying $1.75 every time I take the bus. Usually after almost every half an hour a bus will pass the bus stop and i too have to wait :(
Bus arrives and after swappin the pass in the machine i take my seat...did i forget to mention while entering in the bus the driver and the passenger will exchange greetings. No eating and drinking allowed inside so bus is really clean :)
BTW i started learning Spanish too thanks to informative posters inside the bus both in English and Spanish which is kind of second language in united stated .whoa! my spanish vocabulary is growing !!!
Every bus has got a number according to the ave and the direction and mine for school is 27 which after about 50 minutes takes me to metro center mall where i need to make the transfer. It is kind of large bus stop or say junction for many other buses.
My next bus is number 15 which i have no no idea when it will arrive...so gotta wait for it, which is really interesting as i got to see really funny people around who are either staring at you or sometime i do that too ;)
and Voila ! my bus 15 arrives, and yeah its the same bus i take every time (i know coz driver is same).I would like to share few things about him...every time he stop by, he will get out of bus relax ,smoke twice some times share his cig with other lucky fellow and read few pages of a big fat book which almost takes 15-20 minutes and no one minds !!
when u intend to stop your bus simply pull the string it will give a message to the driver for stop request and he will pull up to the nearest bus stop....get out and don't forget to thank you the driver .

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
