  1. Is it still ‘Bus Day’? Then it is just an exception, and it is the exception that proves the rule- other days are ‘no bus days’. I would expect that by now Bus Day would have become Bus Week, Bus Month and then Bus Year and may be even the Bus Decade. But I think this is just going to change to Metro days. May be the BMRCL IS better than the corrupt karnatak govt, but only time will tell.

  2. An observed corollary to Bus Day: the 5th of every month is No Bus Day. If you have a specific bus at a specific time that you take, remember to not bet on it on the 5th.
