Where did you go??mm :O

Swapnil always wrote..'imagine you sitting on a camel and writing a blog..'
Kheehee.
He said this when i told him about our trip to..to..to...ah..it was supposed to be Ajmer and Jaisalmer and Gurgaon..but...

22nd Jan-5:30 am:
Me flipping through tickets at the railway station.."Mom the tickets we have are of 23rd and its 22nd today!look"(showing the cell for date).
potter sis-"these are Agra to Ajmer tickets..stupid!"

There's no train for Ajmer directly..so you gotta halt at Agra and then go!Actually!halt at Agra and waste a day and go!
Mom-"Agra ruk hi rahe hai toh dekh lenge na Tajmahal..jab summer mein kahan kuch dekh paye the."

Mom had her plans of feeding all those bhookhe bhaiyye's waiting to lotofy tourists..
coming back to the station..
Train was as scheduled,thank God!
Loser Guy!
Just before the train starts,me and my sis having a conversation on the platform.She was arguing why Mom booked A/C tickets in winter,from somewhere came a man and interrupted-"train delay hoyegi na tab pata chalega.."
Asked our names,had a normal conversation with him..he came to see off his family.we boarded the train.Each taking a different side of door in the train.
My sis said 'that man looks strange!'
(sis waving at him,making a question mark face..)
We changed our positions.
Man gesturing me 'phone number!phone number!'
I said 'no thanks..'to sound as if he's giving me his,not asking mine!Clever no? :P

After a minute I realized he wasn't waving bye to my sis..he was gesturing phone number!!We laughed and laughed and I think this is the last place I am discussing it here..Told this to everyone.
Loser!came to send of his family!huh.wonder how people can be that bad!

Gossiping Aunties!
Everyone in my compartment slept and I wanted a passage seat,I went sat in one in other in the same boogie.
I saw a man running here and there and blabbering-'Ek minute chup ni baithti..bhagvaaan...!!'
I looked around,only to see a couple of aunties gossiping.
Poor man sat opening his lappy with big head phones on!
Aunties were a big time pass,they never stopped..they talked about every lady in their society.I'd have written their names if i had a paper I thought. ;P

Nagpur came and the train was filled with all North Indians. North Indians!North Indians..what can I say..if i start writing it'd take me a blog and I have NI's in my followers list so they'd sue me of joining the creed of Orange parade.


23rd:
Agra!Agra!!
Thanks to Mayawati!She've so properly decorated the nations heritage with open sewage lines welcoming the roads and the streets playing independent homes of pigs,buffaloes,cows and horses.
Heard about Tourist places increasing our economical status,but how?got to see it now!
Hey!!We bought boots from here!(the only thing i bought in the whole trip plus the key chain from delhi :P)
Saw Taj mahal and Agra fort.
Don't ask me about how great it was!I've never liked visiting historical monuments,specially when you are asked to play a guide showing Charminar,Golconda fort every now and then guest comes to your house.
Our train to Ajmer was delayed for eleven hours,due to fog!
Stuffed a note of 500 and the T.T allowed us to travel in other train to Jaipur.

Miss's Cell phone and her poor boy friend!

We sat into the Jaipur train.
A girl in a black Umbrella frock(that Umrao jaan type dresses :P)and Jotis,Robin Sharma's-A monk who sold his Ferrari in hand stepped in..showing it to the adjacent seat fella saying'waise toh main books padhti nahi..yeh kahin dost k yahan padhi thi..so socha abhi continue karloo!'
She sat took her phone and T.T came alloted us our births..we adjusted ourselves,I read for sometime and donno when I slept..during all this the girl kept kept kept talking with her boy friend.
I felt like yelling-"please stop!You are being charged for roaming too!"
Wonder how the man on other side tolerated.Oh..they probably were in love,so where comes tolerance?
Story doesn't end here..Jaipur comes early hours 4:00 hours-our halt.And she again starts on phone!
God!I can never forget her face!
We sat in a local to Ajmer then!The Compartments stinked!Ewww!We all slept.I was woken by 'pardesi pardesi jana nahi.......'Yes!these were people from Kishangadh playing music on loud speakers on their China phones.

24th and 25th:
Ajmer.
All the auto fellas sang the MP Sachin Pilot's song here..'Hyd to Ajmer direct train nahi hain..Sachin Pilot ji kar denge..'
The place was 60% better than Agra.
Mum promised that she'd visit the place,if what she prayed was given(Mannat in simple terms).So she wanted to show here.
Again looting people in the name of maintaining Dargah!Throwing visiting cards with addresses to post money.
I felt bad..seeing the ways people earn.
(I apologize here,if i've hurt someone's sentiments,but that's what I observed.)

26th:
Jaipur!!
Went to Jaipur in a local bus from Ajmer.Sis and Jeejs joined us there,they came in their SUV all the way 250+kms from Gurgaon to Jaipur.
People'd kill me if I say"there was nothing to see in Jaipur..' :P
Pa and Jeejs said so!Lazy people making excuses,willing to stay indoors.
There we went to Choki Dhani a Rajastani village resort.The main thing why people come here is,they are served and served food like Rajas Maharajas(Oh..both means the same :P).
Eh!sad thing 'shudh shakahari'(pure vegetarian).And sad thing again all kinds of Rotis,No rice :(
The south Indian Rice stuffer was bored! :P

27th,28th and 29th:
We headed for Gurgaon......
I never thought a place in India like Gurgaon exists.Till this point of my tour I always felt-ah!!Hyderabad is best!Agra,Ajmer,Jaipur are like Villages.I was taken aback here!
Seeing the roads,the buildings I thought...mm..I live in a village?

The feeling has to be a special one,when you visit your married sis's home for the first time.Indeed,it was!
Jeej's introduced every little thing.
We kept seeing things and he kept saying'poocho poocho,aur q'ns poocho!'
From a pen to a book,every photo!He answered all the jasoos questions of his saalis.Home meant food!food and food and that's what we did ate!ate and ate!We were here to see Delhi too though.
We only had India gate and delhi heart in our share with the little time left.


The trip more than seeing places was observing people. only thing I enjoyed was different people...and Sis's place obviously!

P.s:
Sorry all you readers kept you waiting..Lopa,Tangy and all others who didn't make an effort to comment-'missing you.':P
Love you all...
Nameera.

Ok so coming back to your post, I must have to say you are a keen observer Nameera :)

And so you know difference of north and south more clearly now. I remember back in school days (when i didnt know pain of cooking) i used to tell mom, Mom whatever you cook but for me 2 Rotis pls, hehe and so mom will make rotis for me and while she is making for me for dad ofcourse !

My sis on other hand is rice lover ! I learned eating rice and dal stuff when i moved to hostel for BE. Though mom hated my moving out of home, dont ask me how happy she was when she saw me accepting rice for lunch :/

Then i met Ashu, who didn't eat rice and while we dated for 4 years and had dinner together everyday, i missed my rice badly :(
But don't worry, Now I am making him eat rice ;) hehe

More rice,more the increment on your weighing machine.

But I am sure I wont love rotis for anything!:D
