Today one of my friend had to go to Greater Noida for an interview. He asked me to accompany him and i did so. We reached Noida by Metro and then the question was to go to Greater Noida. So we took an auto (for Rs 200) for Greater Noida and hoped to reach there in an hour. Oh we did actually, but the address was something like Knowledge Park 4. Everyone knew about Knowledge Park 1,2 and 3 but what the heck was 4 ? So it took us another half an hour to find that location. Anyways finally we were there. And due to all of this additional crap, had to pay 250 Rs to auto wala. After he got freed from there, we had to come back to Delhi; actually Noida first . So we came out and starting looking for auto. Oh boy…it was a complete jungle and nothing there really. So we thought about calling a cab. Called almost all radio taxi services but same response “Sir we don’t operate in Greater Noida” . Finally we saw an auto (carrying bricks ) wala and asked him to send some auto if he found one on his way. Man something adventurous here. He asked us to adjust in the same auto itself . So somehow we 3 guys adjusted with him and started the journey. He dropped his load on the way and dropped us to Noida after that.
What I am still wondering about is that they have setup almost a new city, so far from the main city but without laying down any transport infrastructure. Someone stuck there in the evening won’t have an option to come back. Moreover there is not a bit of security. It is such a long distance and no police post nothing. Such a crappy idea of first setting up a city in jungle and then opening an office there. Blunder in itself !
