On our return from Pune, Abhishek and I took the MSRTC Shivneri bus service. We were in a ‘Made in China’ King Kong bus. We left at 3 pm, and reached Dadar at 6:45 pm.
It was actually my first-ever bus ride back from Pune. It turned out to be a very pleasant experience. For Abhishek, the memory of the ride back was seeing a train in the ghats. With the big windows, there was so much to see all around.
I used to take the bus (Greyhound mostly) in the US but somehow in India, the bus ride was always seen as an option of last resort. That has changed over the years as the buses have become more comfortable and punctual.
