    I found out yesterday why the cost of a bus ticket from Bangalore to Trichy on a KPN Travels video coach is Rs. 295 while the cost of a ticket to Bangalore from Trichy on a Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation video coach is Rs. 152. The extra Rs. 143 you pay to KPN is for not being shown the movie during the night trip.

    Until Saturday night, which is when I left for Trichy, I'd wondered if the KPN chaps were really making an ass of all of us who'd paid for a video coach but werent being shown the movie. Now I'm grateful to them. The state transport bus showed a fairly old movie, Love Today starring Vijay & Suvalakshmi. The movie started around 930 and went on till midnight. Just when I thought I could get some sleep, the conductor slipped in a video cassette with the latest Tamil film songs which went on for an hour. Ultimately I could put up with it no longer and I asked the tamasha to be stopped, and it was.

    I had a great day at Trichy, meeting Krithi & Jaagruthi after 10 days or so.
