Ever since, Sajha Cooperatives re-introduced Sajha Buses in Kathmandu, almost everyone has a wish to ride it. And yours truly is no exception. So I had been waiting and waiting for a perfect time to ride the most awaited and acclaimed transportation .
Actually a friend of mine and I decided to take the ride together but every time we waited for the bus, it never arrived. And because we were getting late we had to take micro-buses and tempos. My friend who was the original planner to ride the bus together got chance to ride with his mom and sister when returning home because that’s what his mom and sister wanted. And I was kinda okay with that thinking now. 😀
Anyway, I got a text this afternoon from the very same friend to meet him in Lagankhel so that we could take the ride back home and I happily agreed. But at Lagankhel, like always the bus didn’t arrive. So, we waited and waited and waited. His little sister, me and him. Slowly, he being very impatient person, started getting irritated. Time and again, he told us to go in micro-bus but me and his sis didn’t agree. Although we were getting late, we both were adamant to ride the bus. And finally after what seemed like ages, came a bus but went away without stopping saying it was going for oil and would come back soon. But it never did. And then after what seemed like eons again, another bus arrived and this time brought its friend too. One of them quickly drove away while the other one refused to let us in.
‘Our duty is over. Some other bus will arrive” the bus helper said. But the crowd who had been waiting for hours refused to believe that another bus will arrive and started getting infuriating. The bus, thus had to let us all in although the driver was still complaining about not getting to eat on time. The journey of the Sajha Experience then started smoothly before getting disrupted again for a while at Sajha’s Office in Pulchowk. But it didn’t last for long and the journey resumed.
This was one of the nicest bus ride I ever had with comfortable seats and the TV. The only problem was because of the crowd, it was hard to get down. But besides that everything was smooth and amazing. I recommend every one to start riding Sajha not only for experience but also for everyday life. The transportation facilities in Kathmandu is worse but Sajha makes us breathe in relief. I wish Sajha a great success in future but they should make sure that the staffs get enough time to rest.
