All about Road Transport.

Beating the most happening things like the Anna movement, 2G, Bomb blast ,Osama Act & many others the festival season is back to woo us and as usual forgetting everything we are set to have some good time during the Ganesh utsav , Dushera Pooja & Diwali which will continue till christmas & new year. What a middle class corporate employee is in need? if i answer couple of days leave from work to relax & rejuvinate life i hope majority of people will agree to me. And for people like me festival means celebrating with parents @ home & spending quality time to remember later on. This time i was bit late as always to book tickets to home. But for a country like ours it becomes a tough job for lakhs of people who earn their living outside their homes to get back to home on festivals & the ticketing system however has gone online is not sufficient. After the screen displayed " not available", i turned to the road transport system as air travel is bit expansive for me now. 

For my surprise the bus operators are plenty in number and the service online is far better than the centrally operated Railways. Here are few options on road transport you too can use.

  • Redbus ( www.redbus.in)
Redbus reflects the best example of enterprenuership which started in the year 2005 by few techies travellers from Bangalore when they did not get tickets from local counters, with an innovative idea to provide bus ticket booking online. they used technology, managed to get the bus operators linked to them and hence rolled on the redbus service. Now they operate in more than 350 routes and thousands of satisfied customers. the website is user friendly and you can book tickets via internet or by calling the customer care number or by visiting their counter. The customer service is far better than other tour operators & i am sure you will enjoy the ride.
  • Andhra Pradesh Road Transport Corporation (www.apsrtc.in) 
This is the best govt run road transport system to book tickets online available today. The large number of routes to better option with variety of service provided to the m-chek facility is well defied there and I would rate this as the best in the state run transport system.

You need to register once to book tickets online @ http://apsrtconline.in/ 
This again is a better technology used website where you can get tickets to major cities in south , west & central parts of the country.

This again is a better technology used website where you can get tickets to major cities in southern parts of the country.

Recently it has been launched by the State government but the motive is not very clear as nobody else other than the regular agents in the reservation centre can book tickets as it needs a registration for once but the same is not available throughout the website. Being a hub for IT people i dint find the site very useful rather than a long speech by Amma ( Jayalalitha). Wherein you can book tickets at the 50 reservation counters.

    Ek ghadi ki kahani...

    यह चेन्नई मैं मेरी पहली शर्दी है ... हलाकि मैं पिछले साल भी यहीं था मगर मैं शायद इस जलवायु मैं ठीक से अपने आप को ढाल नहीं पाया था. आज कल यहाँ सुबह की नींद बड़ी मजेदार लगती है और बिस्तर छोड़ने को मन नहीं करता.पर क्या करें सुबह सुबह ऑफिस भी तो जाना है ना तो उठाना पड़ता है.हाला की मेरे ऑफिस की कार्यकालिनी समय सुबह ९ बजे से लेके शाम के ६ बजे तक है मगर मैं क्या कहूँ मुझे अपनी आप पे शर्म अति है ये कहते हुए की मैं रोज़ १०- १०.३० से पहले ऑफिस नहीं पहंच पाता था.और क्यों की मैं खुद मानव संसाधन बिभाग मैं हूँ तो मुझे बड़ा अटपटा लगता था और शर्मिंदगी भी लगती थी. खैर एक दिन मेरे अन्दर का शेर जाग गया अचानक और मुझे बोला के बेटा अब उठ जा और कुछ जुगाड़ कर. तो मैंने पिछले रविवार को ही बाज़ार गया और एक अलार्म वाली घडी लेके आया.वैसे उसकी कुछ आबस्यक्ता  नहीं थी क्यों के मेरे घर के पास वाली चर्च से हर एक घंटे मैं अलार्म बजता रहता है. मगर क्या करें कुछ करना जो था, तो मैने एक बजने वाली घडी ले आया और उसे सबसे अधिक आवाज में चालू करके सो गया.  सुबह ६ बजे जैसे ही वो बजा मैं उठ खड़ा हुआ. सुबह की शांत बातावरण मैं मु…

    Odia , Odisha & its people.

    After years I tried my hands in writing a letter in Odia and believe me it was difficult to write as the finger movement needed much to work on the paper to write the fonts. For your knowledge i should tell you that unlike English the letters in oriya are much complicated and need a better effort to write a good hand-writing. But let me tell you it was really tough to get something on paper,forget about the handwriting.But one thing is for sure my fingers remembered the letters so correctly that i was surprised at times when i wrote conjoint letters. It took me 20-30 minutes to write a full page letter expressing my thought at that time. I managed to get an average handwriting & one can only manage to read & understand what I wrote.

    I remember my School Days when I used to speak , read & write in Odia only and read English as a subject in the class. When somebody spoke good English then, people used to admire him with great respect &considered English as a better lang…

    The epic story behind Lord Jagannath...

    The epic story behind the the origin of Lord Jagannath goes back to ancient days when present day Lord Jagannath was being worshiped as Nila Madhava by a tribal head called Biswabasu. The name Nilamadhaba comes from the mountain that is always covered by the dense forest making it tougher for anyone to reach.The story goes, in the state of Malwa there was a king called Indradyumna who was an ardent devotee of lord Vishnu.His utter devotion landed him to see Lod Vishnu in his manly eyes and he in his prayers pleaded the lord to give him Darhan. After long in a divine dream he was told that Lord Vishnu can be seen in his best form in the state of then Utkala. The king then send Vidyapati to find & submit a report on Lord Vishnu. Bidyapati, after a very secret research got to know about Biswabasu & the lord Nilamadhaba , but upon request he denied to show him the way to Nilamadhaba. Failing to get the way to Nilamadhaba by hook or crook Bidyapari Decided to stay there and by pla…
