Last bus from Pune revisited
I found myself again in the same predicament on the weekend ... catching the last bus from Pune for Mumbai. But this time the ST bus was a rather decrepit one: the usual red bus rahter than the asiad so I was tempted by the punters shouting "Volvo" ... "Volvo" just outside the stand. I decided to check them out ... 200 bucks to dadar and it was three - fourths full. I took my chance and hoped that he would move with some seats vacant. But he was eyeing more passengers. So it was a full one and a half hours before he managed to get every single seat filled and start. Meanwhile I counted 4 ST buses leave ... I just cursed myself!
