30 Minute ride in an Auto-rickshaw!

JOURNEYS ALWAYS MAKE US CONTEMPLATIVE, DON’T THEY? BE IT A TRAIN JOURNEY, SCOOTY, BUS…..

PROCESSING OF THE HUMAN MIND IS SO FAST THAT IT OUTGROWS & OUT-SPEEDS THE REALITY IN UMPTEEN WAYS. JUST WHEN WE TRY & SHUT OUR EYES FOR A FEW SECONDS DURING THE JOURNEY & TRY TO PREDICT OUR LOCATION WE REALISE WE HAVE BEEN FOOLED BY REALITY WALKING SLOWER THAN OUR IMAGINATION.

AT TIMES THESE JOURNEYS BECOME EYE-OPENERS IN THE SENSE THAT THEY MAKE YOU THINK IN SOLACE ABOUT THE REALITY OF LIFE & YOUR PATH TO YOUR DESTINATION.

I HAD MY JURY THAT DAY & YOU KNOW HOW ARCHITECTURAL JURIES WORK, LAST MINUTE PLOTS, WHAT RENDERING MATERIAL TO TAKE, BIG ROLLS & SCROLLS…..ITS PRETTY MUCH A MESS!

I WAS LATE SO TOOK AN AUTO-RICKSHAW TO MY COLLEGE……IT ISN’T FAR AWAY BUT JUST 20 MINUTES TOPS.EVERYTHING WAS USUAL TILL THE END OF MY STREET- THE SAME ANNOYING RIKSHAW GUY, DOGS ON THE STREET, PIGEONS IN THE MIDDLE OF ROAD READY TO GET KILLED & OF COURSE RECKLESS SPEEDSTERS ON BIKES READY TO KILL US!

NOW SINCE I HAD 20 MINUTES ALL TO MYSELF, I SAT BACK & RELAXED & WAS RECOLLECTING IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO BEFORE I GO IN FOR THE JURY…SAME TRAFFIC, ANNOYING HONKS & VENDORS….ROADS FULL OF TRAFFIC , CONCRETE BRIDGES OVER FLOWING ON BOTH SIDES OF THE ROAD & THE ROLLER COASTER RIDE OF POTHOLES…..

IT WAS ANOTHER USUAL DAY!

JUST UNTIL WE CROSSED CBD BELAPUR THOUGH…

YOU KNOW, WE HAVE THIS MINI-SWITZERLAND STRETCH BETWEEN BELAPUR & NERUL WHERE YOU HAVE MOUNTAINS & TREES WAITING TO LANDSLIDE ON YOU ON EITHER SIDE OF THE ROADS!

AUNTIES SITTING ON THE FOOT OF THOSE MINI-HILLS; I HAVE NO CLUE FOR WHAT?! JUST INTO THEIR MOBILES! WEIRD LOOKING GYPSY MEN WAITING FOR LIFT FROM EQUALLY WEIRD LOOKING TRUCK DRIVERS….. THERE IS THIS ONE MAN, I THINK MENTALLY-ILL WHOM I SPOT EVERY TIME I PASS FROM THERE, ENTHUSIASTICALLY INVITING EVERYONE TO SOMEWHERE!

ANYWAYS, THE CONTEMPLATION THAT I SPOKE ABOUT STRUCK ME IN HERE……MAY BE THE GREENS HAD GONE INTO MY HEAD & GOT ME HIGH!

THE PAST FEW DAYS HAD BEEN REALLY BAD FOR ME, FIGHTS, ARGUMENTS & THE WORSE….COLD!!

I WAS JUST THINKING WHAT WAS I DOING…..JUST WORKING & PRESENTING….MONOTONOUS LIFE ….. WHY?!

WHAT WAS PURPOSE OF ALL THE SLOGGING?! ETC ETC ETC…

I WON’T DESCRIBE THE DETAILS & BORE YOU…..BUT JUST THAT, THAT DAY, THAT THOUGHT STREAM, THAT JOURNEY CHANGED SOMETHING, SOMEWHERE IN ME.

& IT SHALL BE FONDLY REMEMBERED AS THE DAY, I SPOKE TO MYSELF…! ❤
