silence please

Commuting in buses can be fun. Especially if one has company. Friends, books usually accompany me on my journey, to and fro. Reading a book, while standing in a travelling bus, while sitting, in the bus-stop, until i feel uneasy.

Usually, some friend of mine from college, travels along the same route. So, obviously, we get start talking. This process continues until we each our respective blocks, or sometimes we go on, if i meet a classmate.

And it is not the duty of bus conductors or drivers to shush us. I mean, to say that, it's just a way of killing time. We don't meet each other otherwise, or we are packed with classes, so much so that we are allowed ten minutes to lunch.

To top it all, these people, always aim at me. Why, because i've got a louder tone, or i seem to chat most of the time.Whatever!! Why am i picked, always? Even conductors, drivers et al, can provide themselves with entertainment.Who's stopping others from doing as they please.

God save me!

Ps: I guess this is the first time, wherein my blog is serves as a vent, to my feelings(knowingly). As i was,(no prizes for guessing the correct answer) again, ordered to maintain silence, today, pretty rudely at that!!

Simple and nice article on a very routine topic that nobody even bother to think.

So I will be talking on the paragraph from your article.

"World drifts towards the strong"

Is that the answer for your question.

In any kind of achievement or journey we try to cut off the big obstacle first and then the smaller one.

Just s discussion.

Once again keep writing so that the new writers like me can have more articles to read.

Regards,
Abhijeet

Interesting post...

Dont let it bother you... way back when I went to school I was always singled out as the "talker".. one of the names that my teachers gave me was " class advisor"..

All the talking does help in the long run when you get onto your career path.. it makes it easier for you to break cultural boundaries...
Keep talking...

thanks a lot, for dropping by.

@ abhijeet, as u said, 'the world drifts towards the strong', in this case, towards a stronger voice :), and yes, i am speaking about something that's impossible

@ vijay, thanks alot for the golden words, though it feels strange, i was always advised to keep quiet, u mention quite the contrary.
