The driver Mayekar and the transport conductor Dinkar inquired as to whether she had somebody coming to lift her up. Since her better half was out of the city at the time, Mantasha, who had been fearing sitting tight for an auto alone in obscurity betrayed stretch of the street, answered no.
This provoked Mayekar(45) and Dinkar(32) to sit tight there for 10 minutes with the various travelers in the BUS until Mantasha at last got an auto. In addition, they even remained till the auto began moving to guarantee that it went the correct way and didn’t take the lady through a wrong course.

“Amid the day, we are caught up with battling activity to meet the time plan designated to us. It’s solitary fitting that we take a few endeavors to accomplish something additional for travelers by the day’s end.
This can be through dropping the travelers somewhat further at a sheltered place where they can get rickshaws effectively. Now and then, we drop them before police headquarters. We frequently do this for physically tested individuals.”
