And then, one fine day, I was deprived of one of the little pleasures of life, that of occupying the bus seats reserved by other folks through the indigenous use of strategically placed bags and word of mouth, through the introduction of the anti-reservation policy.
This policy gives me the right to occupy a seat reserved in one of the above manners, the pleasure of sitting next to a red-faced fellow traveller (whose face owes its red colour to me)...but takes away the fundamental delight of a confrontation :)

Of course, one of the immediate economic impacts of this bill, is borne by the newspaper seller, who finds few takers these days, with no one willing to get down from the bus to grab a newspaper, lest the hard-earned seat is lost. :)
