Travelling in Mumbai .. only experience can teach how you can squeeze into the traffic of humans and vehicles..while there are long hours to reach your destination , one can utilise time by observing others or reading or listening to one's own 'manpasand' songs but that is only once you have made yourself a place to stand or sit if you are using public transport... :)
So at times I use observation as a means to pass the travel time..and here I come with a post of not so usual for me spottings . may be usual for the other people though...
on my journey from office to home , there are helmet shops on the western express highway..never understood why on the pavement you find so many used helmets lying 'laavarish' .. was it a way for promoting to buy helmets from their shops or was it a donation/dumping ground.. :)
If you are a little familiar with Bombay train routes , Western line is from Churchgate ..andheri .. Kandivali..Borivali ..Virar. Have seen people, who climb onto trains from say Kandivali station onto a train coming from Churchgate and going till Borivali. Their travel destination is say Andheri but will travel till the last destination Borivali. They will travel unnecessarily just to book their seats , cos once the train reaches borivali , from where the train will start it reverse journey to Churchgate,it will get full from Borivali only , and as soon as it reaches Kandiali there will be no place for them to sit. Such is life..Tough ..
( there was one more..but can't recollect it rite now ;) :) , will post it later..)
