I guess I am cheating a little today. I picked this picture for Sky Watch Friday more because of the overloaded bus rather than the sky. But it has blue sky too, won’t you agree? But then it has been one of those weeks where it feels weekend came after five rather than the regular one week. So you have to give me some sack.
Also I thought the saying on the bus was great ‘100 में से 80 बेईमान फिर भी मेरा देश महान’ (’80 out of 100 people are corrupt by still my country is great’ is a rough translation).
I was coming back from a wonderful stay at the Jaipur Marriott. We were not very far away from reaching home. I was feeling quite lethargic by now, a bit impatient too. After all it is at the end of the journey when you wish to reach home fast. And then I witnessed this scene on the Jaipur-Delhi Highway.
I hesitated initially because if the passengers notice someone clicking a picture, particularly a woman, they can start shouting and hooting. And I was in no mood for that. But then the scene was too delicious to let go without an attempt. No one noticed me clicking the picture from the car. I guess the boys were too busy holding on to their dear life!
But the biggest coincidence was when I posted this on Facebook and my sister shared it. One of her friend’s said the students were from the polytechnic where she is a teacher! She had some very sharp words to say about this habit of her students. Of course there have been accidents in the past. But then it is indeed a small world, where you click a random picture and someone finds a connection with it!
