Travel weary




The entire family was travelling from Mumbai to Pune for my younger brother's wedding. We'd been on the road for well over four hours with numerous breakdowns along the way. First the airconditioning conked, then the fan belt gave way and later one of the tyres was punctured. Everyone was tired, frustrated and just about ready to give up and turn back (figuratively speaking, of course). And then, towards the fag end of the journey when we were about 20 kilometers outside our destination, I looked across from my seat and I saw this. And there, framed in that one moment, was the distilled mood of the entire day.

That sounds like one long tiring journey, but sometimes, one moment can make a difference. Hope the wedding was a huge success and everyone otherwise enjoyed the festivities. :-)

pooonaaaaaaaaah!!!
what season was it?? the bombay pune expressway is great but if you really want to do the trip well - and the right way to do it is to take a train when it rains, and not the ac compartment - it even smells like heaven......
