1950 LEYLAND BUS-MADE IN ENGLAND
.Those days Ranni was supposed to be the starting point of wild animals and forests
The lone bus that plied the route would be parked in front of our house on the appointed day, long before its scheduled departure, to take us all on board with all our effects. And, after reaching its hub at Tiruvalla and having ‘unloaded’ the other passengers, it would make a beeline for our house to drop us off at our very doorstep. That was personalised, doorstep-to-doorstep service for you!
