Even after having all the time and space of this world..i write here after almost an age..whom should i blame for that..i do not know or rather i dont want to know.
How relaxed i am..how free i am..thinking about all the possible things to write about..
The little that i have experienced in my life recently is the force of IMPULSE..yes! you feel it: you do it: yes! that is the spirit it holds..as truly it means: a sudden flow of electrical current in one direction..not knowing where it would lead you..with all due pride i have had quite a lot of episodes driven by the same force..all thanx to my friends..
It all started from the small sweet friendship night ambience..where we got high ( mind it! without any sort of intakes)..and dreamt of doing things we would want to before leaving college..so the journey began..from the city of agra..then pune..then jabalpur..then indore then surat..kanpur..pachmari..delhi..and then pondicherry..needless to mention that i obviously had a lot of fun..but here what i would like to be noticed about is the spirit behind these actions..
when leaving for station attimes we didn't know where we will take off for..and to board on the train of which you have no ticket:its a complete different feeling!! look at the contrast: so little we had in our pockets :so much more we wanted to explore.
The best was when our exams got postponed and we wanted to celebrate..but there came some unwanted discussion about where to go..the solution was : get india's map in google..close your eyes..and just hit for the place where your finger points..and thats how we left for jabalpur..
From a quiet peaceful dinner..there popped out the indore trip..we left in the night itself..two bikes into the dark..!! it was the most impulsive of all..
Pondicherry was the farthest of all the places we had been to..and we did not know who all were coming till the time we got on the train..and by then we had become experts of how to spend quality time in train ;) by experience..
All this led to the extreme that people in college used to get surprised to spot us three days in a row ..Sure in their minds that we would be heading for sum place on the fourth day..
and after coming back..you suffer from hangover(of the trip ofcourse)..with all the deadlines and submission dates added to it..a perfect GRILL..!!
In addition to the memories i will cherish for years to come..there are a few more things i learnt:
1) how to convince people to come with you beating all the lame reasons they have ..( stupid no money excuses ) that too in just two three hours before leaving..as the trip was decided just then.
2) how to manage accomodation to reduce expenses..mind it..! no hotels..first final the place..and then think about your oldest friends..or your friend's friends..or some reliable acquaintance with ofcourse excellent tolerance power..as you bombard him or her with a big group of hooligans..
3) how to live the rest of the days with no money at all..( wch can becum a separate topic in itself..so ll leave it fo d next blog )
4) ofcourse a little more about india's geography..
and thank god these effects of an impelling force till now had not given any bad experiences..so caution is the word that comes along with impulse..
note: the risk you take should not be very expensive..
there is more to come as i am still not done with my college..so watch out for this space..!!
