Me: Cummon mom, make a sad face. Me leaving.
Mom: Don’t make me laugh more. Click now. Take the snap.
Me: Do some drama yaar. Show as if you are wiping tears with your left hand
Mom: Enough. Click. Now. (laughing)
Me: 🙁 Click.
I got all the time to take snaps and blog because my train has been delayed by five hours! Three cheers to the Indian railways. But it’s good for me. It’s good because otherwise I would have reached Calcutta, oops, Kolkata, at about 2pm today. I need to board another train from Kolkata which shall take me to Bangalore. That train leaves Kolkata at 8:30 PM tonight. So now instead of waiting at the dirty Howrah Junction (this is what the Kolkata raiway station is called), for like more than six hours, I’ll have to kill only something more than an hour. That’s cool. But only as long as this running-goddamn-late train doesn’t get delayed any more. If it does, then my entire plan is going to get bloddy messed up. And in that case, I will go and kill Lalu Prasad Yadav.
Yes,I am proud to be a light traveller. I don’t understand why people don’t travel light. Look at me. One laptop bag. Another small bag for clothes and food and camera. Done!
