Observation in silk board was quite interesting this time. I have travelled several times passing through this bus stop, waiting for the busses to come but never thought of observing this field so carefully. There were 2 stoppages for Silk Board. One is just before and below the flyover where people often get down due to traffic ahead and busses would go damn slow and even stops most of the time. The second is in front of Central Silk Board office as shown in picture. The indicators were never been heard nor the sweet kids voice asking for money in return of a pen or pop corn. Thinking of doing a peaceful observation I choose day time at 1 PM but it was not so when I went there. It was the same crowded place to me and all around the Silk Board bus stop. People were roaming around, running, driving, honking horns, yelling at each other and some were just sitting on bench waiting long for buses to come. It was heartening when I saw one girl selling 5 Rs. pen with a sweet voice and asking me to take two instead of just one. It was so obvious to me that she didn’t wanted to become a beggar and just ask for help or favours, instead she choose to work hard and earn. I didn’t ask anything about the money she gets at the end of the day because it was just an observation. I saw one child asking his dad for bathroom but as there were no bathrooms near the stop, his dad took him somewhere and letting his pressure flow away. People like me who are new to Bangalore struggled to find their route busses and asked the conductors or drivers about the location they wanted to go. I think there is a urgent need for BMTC to put road maps with bus numbers on every possible bus stop they could. It was really annoying for the drivers to drive and answer the questions people asked because they deal with people for so long regularly. There were people booking cabs and going in a groups having fun and abusing each other in case of college boys. The traffic police with his limited capacity and power to handle limited number of vehicles did his best to control traffic. After some time I saw 2 more policemen coming on their white old bikes which is polluting environment after lunch (my guess). I wonder why there is not PUC (pollution under control) certificates in Bangalore. Looking at cloudy black sky I thought that rain would come any time and traffic would become more worst but Thank God it didn’t. When I was not really looking for any bus that expression came out and people anxiously looked at me and thought of helping me but nobody asked me and then my stopwatch alarmed and I came to college.
