A man standing nearby took out his handkerchief immediately seeing my injury and wrapped it on my hand and started cursing the bus driver. All this happened because the bus was too old and its body was unserviceable. A piece of the door was wrecked and it had become a sharp blade and cut my hand severely when I got on the bus and held the door to balance myself in the bus. I was afraid to embark the bus because it was heavily stuffed with the passengers and it felt that the bus would be toppled down to one side.
On the other hand, the floor of the bus was also flexible and it felt that the floor could not bear the weight of the passengers and would be broken in a few days whereas the whole door of the bus was too dangerous from every aspect.
It is a great misfortune that today we see a lot of the same like buses running on various routes which surely can cause any mishaps or damage to human lives. Such buses either are running without any permits or these buses are permitted to run after bribery is given to the authorities concerned.
The government in this regard must take some serious initiatives in order to secure the human lives and ban all such buses with old bodies which are unable to run on roads and are threat to human lives.
