How can pigeon travel sans ticket?

12, Sep 2017 By shakeel ahmad

KANPUR: Now, birds are not free to travel on roadways buses. If any bird is found to be travelling on bus window it will liable to buy a valid ticket for its journey to nowhere. One bird can sit anytime to rest after its long flight but the Avian’s very presence inside the bus will not be forgivable. It is generally seen how the birds come and sit on the moving vehicles and quickly fly after a few seconds. However, a state government bus cannot put up with this haughtiness of the flying avis.

There is a strict rule for ticketing of the birds in Tamil Nadu buses.  That’s why a pigeon sitting on the state corporation bus window was fined for travelling without a ticket. The conductor was issued with a memo. The passenger denied the presence of the pigeon when he boarded the bus. During the course of the ticket checking a pigeon was found with an inebriated passenger in the bus. In accordance with the rule of the Tamil Nadu State Transport Corporation, it is imperative to pay one-fourth of the whole fare in case one person travels with more than thirty pigeons.

Just as none can put control on free air, free sun, the free movement so as a pigeon’s free movement cannot be checked calculatingly. The birds have total freedom to fly in the sky, to sit at its desired spot and rest at its nest after the darkness. The bus conductor insisted upon the absence of the pigeon from the passenger while getting on the bus. Unsatisfied with this point of the conductor, the officials in the rank of inspector issued him a memo. It seems just as a human being is nothing without the proof of Aadhaar Card so as the unshackled bird was carrying a punishment for without ticket travel.
