BMTC Bus

If a BMTC bus could talk it would probably say “Ayyo Devare! Ee Bengaluru janara sahavaasa bedave beda”. (Translation: “Oh God! I do not want to have any association with the people of Bangalore”). A BMTC bus is a very faithful, un-complaining people ferrying machine. Despite its loyalty, it is the first thing to be attacked whenever a situation turns violent. People stone, set fire to, and puncture a BMTC bus for reasons that are not even remotely connected to it. For example, BMTC buses were attacked when,

  1. Dr. Rajkumar was kidnapped by Veerappan
  2. Tamil Nadu wanted Cauvery water
  3. Babri Masjid was demolished
  4. US invaded Iraq

Think your job is tough? Try being a BMTC bus for a day.

Moral: A BMTC bus is like a faithful pious wife. An easy target :-)

That’s absolutely true. bmtc is the sufferer in hands of people as well as media for the faults not committed by them. Eg. BMTC are killers. Ya true of the reckless people who do not know to follow rules in bangalore. they do not go out of their way to kill but only those who blindlyfall in the way.
