The day is starting a bit early these days as I start my work from 7’o clock in the morning, to reach on time I need to wake up at 5:30 am. There are many positive sides to waking up early other than the usual health thingy and one of them is you no longer need to face Mumbai’s peak hour traffic either on my way to work or on my way back home, which also means saving precious 2 hours of commuting time daily.
Life has been so far so good in 2011 beginning with the end of me travelling by Mumbai Local (which obviously was worse than travelling by poultry van). Life comes full circle after 5 years and am back in the plush area of Hiranandani – Powai, it was my first day in Mumbai and this was the place where I had first stepped in for working with a BPO, but this time am well prepared to face challenges thrown by life (almost felt like Vijay Deenanath Chauhan - Amitabh Bachchan in Agneepath while standing in front of that BPO office). Things have changed a lot, life has changed a lot, and the surroundings have changed a lot. I am now a certified Mumbaikar.
I however am travelling on my journey back home by these new Kinglong A/C. Buses which are luxurious and very comfortable with seats almost empty as I travel mostly during off peak hours. I would strongly recommend anyone who is tired to drive at work to start travelling by these buses coz they are comfy as well as easy on your pocket and you can as well utilize the time either connecting to friends via social network, work on your way or can spend quality time reading books or listening to music.
One thing that’s common in these buses and Mumbai local trains are Gujjubhais, who continue to yell on top of their voice while talking on phone or conversing with their fellow co-passengers.
