When Shraddha used to fear private buses as college-goer

'Jersey' actress Shraddha Srinath has spoken of her college days, when she used to prefer crowded buses even though she never liked them over private buses. The talented actress reflects the views of millions of commuting girls/women in her latest Instagram post.

"I am watching 'Delhi Crime' on Netflix. Have you watched/ heard of it? It's based on the Nirbhaya case. The cops keep talking about a white coloured, private bus in which the incident took place. As I watched it today, I remembered something. During law school, I would travel by bus. I hated crowded buses, mainly because I would feel unsafe and... I don't know I can't find the word for it.. it felt like a war inside a crowded bus. I mean, taking buses helped greatly in character building and gave me some real humbling life lessons but I HATED crowded buses," she starts off saying.

"I would skip crowded buses. "I'll take the next one", I'd think, and wait for the next one. The next one would come, but it too was crowded and I'd skip it. But I had to get to college/ get home, and I couldn't wait forever. And then intermittently, these brightly coloured private buses would come. And they were empty. Like faaaaar emptier than the BMTC (Bengaluru's local buses) buses. But something about them seemed off. So I'd look away and wait some more. And then I'd eventually get on the next bursting on the seams BMTC bus. Today I'm just glad I never got on those private buses and waited for my good old trusty, but crowded BMTC. Oh wait, another reason I didn't take the private bus was because my BMTC pass wouldn't work on it and I had to pay from my pocket. Pocket money was real torture in college guys. Real torture. Cheers to being financially independent."
