Image
It often so happens that amidst our frequent and not-so-frequent journeys, we come across several of the very common bus stations across the country. Some of them freeze a frame in our mind for their grandiose, and some for their normalcy. Yet, with all the variety, it is mostly a transit point for a journey, either to or fro!But in between all the honking of buses, the regular calls for passengers and the race for a seat, there’s a lot that buzzes around this place.

Eventually, we take one, which is best suited to the whole situation. But there are distinct group of people, who are observed to have a totally different kind of behavior, w…
