First man: Thank you, Please tell me how long does it take to reach Jaipur.

Second man: About five hours.

First man: when will the next bus come?

Second man: It’s very hard to say. It may come in 10 minutes or it may not come for another twenty minutes.

First man: Oh God, No fix time, it really creates very difficulties for passengers.

First man: What we can do, common people have no other alternate.

Second man: do you always travel by bus?
