drama at bus station

Recently my brother has come from US on vacation.
My mother has prayed to some gods that she would visit them if he is same and doing well...
so the time has come for my mom to visit all those places with my brother and including us(my sister and me)
So we decided on the temple as Vemulawada temple.
Its about 3 hours from Hyderabad and its my moms native place as well...
so we decided to go by bus as its safest.... as its the Karthika masam...there would be huge crowd... i am assuming ppl would know about it... i will explain about it later...

so we reached the bus station at 6:30am in an auto and immediately i saw a bus going to that place...
my brother forgot his USA mannerism and stuff...and ran after the bus to catch some seats... you know indian crowd...its horribly difficult to enter a bus which has a single door :)

the driver... i mean bus driver said that the bus is completely full and asked us to catch another bus... mind you guys... the frequency of these buses is very less...finally we got one seat in that bus and my sister got into that bus...and i was looking at the other buses boards to find if there is any other bus...

i saw another bus and saw that there were enough seats for all of us... all three of us got into the bus...and it started moving..and we realized that our sister is missing.... damn!!!!
my brother was shouting...whistling to the conductor and driver to stop of the bus...and we realized that my sister doesnt even have a mobile(my brother is using hers...as US ones doesnt work here)...damn!!!!!
finally he stopped the bus after covering some distance... my brother ran to get my sister from the other bus...
he has searched everywhere and she is not found... i got scared and confused and tensed...
i got down the bus and told my mom to sit in the bus...
in front of me the previous bus(in which my sister was there) was leaving and there is no sign of my sister....
this time my mom got tensed... she was almost in tears at the thought of not finding her youngest kid :(
she got down the bus and was behind us for searching my sister...we searched for her for couple of mins...and cursed for not having another spare mobile... communication has become so important these days...
by god... i dont remember how were the days without mobile phones...and how ppl managed!!!!!

finally my brother found her...  my stupid sister went outside to make a call to us...and early in the morning none of the telephone booths were open...and she even has decided to go back home and sleep again.. lazy girl!!! almost took the life out of us....

now the turn is of the bus conductor(the one in which we thought of travelling)... he couldnt afford losing 4 passengers... so he turned his bus and came back to pick us up :)
that was very sweet of him and selfish of him though...
when we all four were entering the bus.... you shud see the look on the fellow passengers faces...
i couldnt make out the emotion whether it was anger(for making the bus run late)...shock(we are in the bus again)...relief(we found our sister).
we all didnt talk for a while in the bus... and later me and my sister cracked jokes on the incident and prolonged the incident and laughed like hell....

well... after the incident i realized how important its to be together and how difficult on the thought of losing one of the member...
touch wood... i m really lucky to have a sweet younger sister who does everything and anything for me :P

It is bad you were so desperate in finding seats without caring ur sis. At least good you guys found her sooner. i m sure the other fellows in the bus were angry fr running late :)
