Chug Along - III

If ever i think of my best train journey , the first thing comes in my mind is the journey of our first goa trip .

It was 23rd september when we left for the most memorable trip . Before even our journey started the train was late by four hours due to heavy monsoon rain in the eastern part of country.

Many people accompanied us including juniors and they got down as their stations came . In the pics we look so young and fresh . Btw who are the other two girls in the pic.

We sang , we played dumb C , we slept and the best was "male bonding" .
Shayon as usual became topless due to intense heat . Also he asked some weird questions to each of us.
My mom gave her hand made food in nagpur . We ate every single stuff but still our stomach was not full.

By the time we reached mumbai we missed our goa train .
Fortunately we got reservation in another train next morning... In that train of Konkan Railways we ate , ate and only ate the whole time ... They served everything from sabudana pakodi to chicken lolipop ...

I still have the sweet memories of the trip and every person was responsible to make it so enjoyable .

@ Raj,
I still remember that journey! Raj's moms food (she'd even send me food when I travelled alone and passed by Nagpur!). We were stuck in Bombay overnight, Rathz and I went to book the tickets somewhere and it was so late that there wasn't any transport. So Rathz and I walked all around the place (went up to the Asiatic Library I guess)!
Thankfully I missed the 'male bonding' part- God knows what they were up to and with with Shayon around there's nothing you can disregard!
Ha ha ha ha haha!
Shayon's dad came to the station and dragged him away, even though he wanted to stay at the platform with us while we waited for the Goa train!

I remember it all too well that you too were a part of our "male bonding" session when one of the questions I had asked was "what is your style of cleaning up after taking a dump?" Hahaha!! :-D
Unknown said… a memorable journey that was..There were Jammy and Nandan as well..

Jammy had a peculiar way to indicate sallu bhai (Salman) and also Sunil Shetty I think, in the DumbC rounds..Nandan was going crazy with all the things happening around him !! hahaha..

And of course the fantastic lollipops..Sam and Jammy were asked for college i-cards as age proof in CST while returning, isnt it ;)

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Little Miss

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut) wit
