The King of the Roads

Posted in Bombay, crowd, Mumbai, Society by Tall Guy on September 14, 2011

Bombay is the city of dreams, and there is no better way of witnessing this in a weekday morning when people are rushing to work and that would be especially catching an Auto Rickshaw.

The length people go to catch an Auto these days really shows our  desperation  just to reach at a place in time. There is no better place than to witness it on a BEST bust stop.

One can see the attempts to make halt almost every Auto even though its carrying it passengers and sometimes none and not even stopping by and tries fooling us by keeping the meter at half down. One can witness the funny side of life at this moment.

Even when an Auto do decides to make a halt, there is a maddening rush to get inside first. In fact two sisters got separated as one got in the Auto and other one got left out as a stranger occupied the vacant space.

If standing on the road does not gets you an Auto and you are with someone, make sure to send them to the other side of the road so that you can have a win-win situation every time a vacant Auto passes by…

The Auto in the city have surely become rare as one has to wait for some time (which could go to 10-15 and maybe an half an hour too) to catch a vacant auto.  There are even times when people actually pray that they are able to catch an auto in time.

No wonder the Auto Rickshaws in Bombay are surely the king of the roads….
