Old Wine in a New Bottle

Today MTC got 56 newbie in full RED uniform this reminds of the buses running in late 60’s 70’s. A great change in automobile industry and bus body building we have seen a lot of improvements in TN Transport Department buses. A lot of color changes from the past to today. This RED will surely bring back the travel memories of the old peoples from 70’s. The side lettering’s in white is the highlight still if our government add our Tamilnadu emblem in the middle it will be a eye pleasing.

special features of the buses have single individual broad seats, pneumatic doors with sensor, wide entry exit almost double of the old buses. Hope MTC will maintain it well with cooperation from public.

புதுமையில் பழமை

இன்று ஆரம்பிக்கப்பட்ட இந்த சிகப்பு பேருந்துகள் எனக்கு 1960, 1970ம் ஆண்டுகளில் மெட்ராஸ் மாகாணத்தில் வலம் வந்த சிகப்பு நகரப்பேருந்துகளையே ஞாபகப்படுத்துகின்றன. தொழில்நுட்ப வளர்ச்சி பேருந்து கூண்டு கட்டுதலில் மாறுதல் என பல மாற்றங்கள் வந்தாலும் இந்த சிகப்பு வர்ணம் பின்னோகிதான் இழுத்துச் செல்கிறது. சென்னை தன் பேருந்து சேவைகளில் பல வர்ணங்களை பார்த்திருக்கும் ஆனால் கண்டிப்பா இந்த சிவப்பு வர்ணம் அந்த காலகட்டத்தில் வாழ்ந்த மனிதர்களின் பசுமையான பயணநினைவுகளை மீட்டுக்கும். பேருந்தில் பக்கவாட்டில் வெள்ளை எழுத்துகளால் மாநகர்போக்குவரத்துக் கழகம் என்று எழுதி இருப்பது மிகச்சிறப்பாக உள்ளது. இன்னும் நமது அரசு அதில் தமிழ்நாடு முத்திரையை பதித்து புதிய பேருந்துகள் வெளிவந்தால் நம் கண்களுக்கு விருந்தாகும். அரசுப் பேருந்துகளில் அரசு முத்திரை இல்லாதது வருத்தமே.

To compare posting buses run in 70’s.
