It was Saturday morning. The very night we were to board a bus for “TUNG”, our destination. Myself, Abha and Swati got out haversacks to college the very morning it self. We stay at Thane and to reach Matunga it takes 1:30 hours one way. So we thought why waste our time in traveling from college to home 4 times a day?? And if you are wondering why we had to go to college in the morning at the first place it was for Mr.Gujrathi’s EVS lecture. So atleast now all the Podarites reading this would have got a justified reason, right?
We had fun in college till about 1 P.M. Karthik started asking us all whether we had packed this thing and that. And invariably we didn’t have many a things mentioned by him. Never mind we didn’t require all those things. And then I was on my phone talking to the Hutch care number enquiring whether I had my roaming service activated or not. Just ‘cos I spoke for like 5 long minutes on line Karthik started calling me “hotline”… KM has a weird sense of humor.
Then at 1 we left to Swati’s uncle’s house at Chembur. We couldn’t stay whole day in college. Especially just the three of us with any other company. We took a bus from behind our college. But guess what?! After reaching somewhere in Sion we spotted a Crossword at a traffic signal. All three of us hopped down the bus and barged into the bookstore. Mean while my cellphone continuously warned be by making weird sounds that I had very low battery. After having browsed through some of the pages we left for her uncle’s home by rickshaw.
Ooh I forgot to mention…before leaving college we lunched at Mani’s and had a watermelon juice at Sai Point!!!!
Once home we freshened up. I got my cell charged. We chatted a bit. Saw some television. The other two girls slept off but the MTV roadies kept me awake. Then we went down to a general store and got some bread and butter for breakfast the next morning along with some biscuits and chocolates. We ordered pav bhajji and biryani for dinner!!!
At around 9 PM we left her home. We had such a bumpy ride to college in the bus…boy…the bus was at its full speed that to on the flyover and we were sitting on the last seat……it was FUN!
I forgot to mention one thing….Abha and Swati had not got their caps. And because we had to trek the whole of the mountain in the scorching sun they really needed the caps. And so I made poor Rohit who stays in Matunga to buy them caps from a sports shop at Matunga because by the time we would have reached their the shop would have got closed for the day.
So once we reached college at 9:30 (may be a little late) others had already reached. Pooja was already furious that I was late. Gloria was their. Rohit and Achintya came to give these people their caps. Then after a while we went to G 4. You know what! Even at 10 in the night the watchman was yelling at us not to stand in the corridor…..he’s one crazy man I must say!!!
At 11 the bus arrived and we ran to catch our favorite seats…
From their the journey began!!!!
