Do you overhear others conversation in public transport?I regularly avail public transports. I use Delhi Metro and Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC) bus everyday. Generally during long journey and if I am fortunate enough to get a seat, I read a book (I always have books with me in my bag). However sometime I listen to conversations going on between others.
Once in Delhi Metro, I overheard a very interesting and informative discussion between two Civil Services aspirants regarding the ways to crack General Studies paper of Civil Service Examination. During the engrossing discussion continued over thirty minutes, these two young men discussed the General Studies paper threadbare section by section. I sincerely hope both the young men have cleared the most coveted examination by now.
Day before yesterday I overheard the conversation between two ladies, one middle-aged and one young, in a DTC bus. The middle-aged lady explained the younger one the different ways of bargaining in different markets in Delhi. According to her, the technique of bargaining is different in Sarojini Nagar market than the technique to be employed in Lajpat Nagar market or Karol Bagh market. I also tried to learn such techniques from the lady and I hope to apply these when I would visit these markets.
Do other Members overhear such interesting conversation in public transport?
