The wooden bus of Shillong. (Photo: The Quint / Tridip K Mandal)

If the headline has an uncanny similarity to the 1999 smash hit ‘Vengabus’ by pop group Vengaboys, well, it’s deliberate. That’s because this photo feature is on the buses which have likely played the song while going from Shillong to Smit in Meghalaya.

These blue and yellow buses are the trademark of Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. They look old-worldly, the drive is old-worldly, and sometimes even the music playing inside these buses is old-worldly – or classics, as they’re called by music aficionados. It’s little wonder then that Michael Jackson still finds a place here.

Nice pic. You still find the Yellow and Blue Bedford buses running in the rural areas. Those are Legendary.

I saw this near Arwah cave recently. I was impressed. Do they still make these vehicles?
