No sooner did I embark or get
on a bus, my hand received severe injury and I could not understand what
happened to me! The bus full of passengers had no space to adjust a man but as
CNG stations were closed that day, everybody was in a hurry to reach their
destinations and so was I! My hand was bleeding and I was unbalanced as it was
difficult enough to stand whereas the driver seemed further in a hurry!
A man standing nearby me took out his handkerchief immediately seeing my injury
and wrapped it on my hand while started cursing the bus driver! All this
happened because the bus was too old and its body was unserviceable! A piece of
the door was wrecked and it had become a sharp blade and cut my hand severely
when I got on the bus and held the door to balance myself in the bus! I was
afraid to embark the bus because it was heavily stuffed with the passengers and
it felt that the bus would be toppled down to one side.
On the other hand, the floor of the bus was also flexible and it felt that the
floor could not bear the weight of the passengers and would be broken in a few
days whereas the whole door of the bus was too dangerous from every aspect!
It is a great misfortune that today we see a lot of the same conditioned buses
running on various routes which surely can cause any mishaps or damage to human
lives! Such buses either are running without any permits or these buses are
permitted to run after bribery is given to the concerned authorities!
The government in this regard must take some serious initiatives in order to
secure the human lives and ban all such buses with old bodies which are unable
to run on roads and are threat to human lives!
