You people are our strength, our hope and inspiration. Your activeness against the society is praiseworthy. Every common people looks at your face to get rid of the problems. And yes you all eagerly come forward for the well being of the society. But in some cases you become so selfish that you don’t even care for the common people. You come forward to do good but you end up getting scolded by the common people. Maybe this happens due to your mismanagement.
On the day I was in an emergency to go to Dibrugarh for meeting a doctor in AMC. At 6am I went to a winger. After sitting a while the driver said “ we are not going as ……organisation/government is doing requisition of vehicles to bring people to their meeting” After hearing I along with my co-passengers steped out of the winger and went to another vehicle. The other vehicle also travelled a while and repeated the same thing. They told us to go into the bus behind the traveller which is going to Jorhat. I again stepped out of the traveller and went to the bus. During this I heard the drivers speaking, “the organisation/government takes the vehicle for whole day and do not even pay a single penny. How can it be possible for us to simply waste a day. Its better we stop today and enjoy the day” I was very shock to hear that they don’t get paid during such requisition and to get rid of this they are losing their business for the day.
Every passenger was in hurry to reach their destination, someone to the doctor, someone to school, someone to their job etc. The bus driver then started driving after going a distance he stopped. All were in shock again, the driver then said that he won’t go. The passengers were then getting angry with the driver and organisation/government. The driver the said that they will take another route and everybody will need to pay 20rupee extra. All agreed to pay but still he was not going. I then came down the bus and asked whether he is going or not. He replied no to me. I remained silent and said nothing. It was 8am and suddenly a traveller came shouting ‘Dibrugarh’ ‘Dibrugarh’. I stepped into it and took a seat. Other people’s also rushed to the traveller and we started our journey. Some people even went back home. So to travel just 1hour we fought for 2hours.
So I request all organisation/government, please organise something giving importance to the convenient of people. For your celebration others might not face such hectic situations.
A common citizen of Assam.
Note: Please don’t take it personally i just shared my thought and experience of the day.
