“Hey it is getting cloudy I should reach for the classes before It rains ..hurry up !!” I screamed on the shopkeeper ...”yes jus a second sir we are finding it out, have patience” he replied ….”Hey that’s the only thing I lack, otherwise I am perfect”.. I thought!
So he took out the brand new Barron’s from the shelves and handed over to me along with the bill in a polybag , I put it inside my bag and rushed towards the coaching institute ..It started drizzling as soon as I came out, I increased my pace ..fumbled twice ..on the way ..but didn’t heed coz I had to reach the center asap …but before I cud reach there it started raining cats and dogs..I went inside a bus stop ..to shade myself and to make sure that My brand new book doesn’t fade out ..looked at my watch …I had 45 mins ..no need to worry I thought, sat down ..took out my mobile and started playing snake ..a gud time pass u see !!
People were accumulating from three directions east,west,north ….and not from south coz the bus stand was in south so they couldn’t appear from the wall provided …It was a P.C Sarkar’s magic show…and in a minute the bus stand had at least 50 people from all age groups…screaming and irritating me in Telgu …(I hate when I dun understand a language),I wondered If they were abusing me in their language ..and suddenly It made me think that India has much more population on the roads than in the population data !
Damn the shopkeeper, damn those 5 mins and damn this rain (wait,wait, wait, do I sound like 'Farhan Akhtar' in 'Rock on'??)...…the sparkles of droplets were rinsing me and I hated the itch ..now only 5 mins were left for the class to begin and a 5 min journey too ..It was almost 45 mins and the Rain god was looking merciless ..so I decided to walk in the rain ..and reach my destination ..
I was never able to understand the UPSTREAM and DOWNSTREAM problems in my high school Mathematics book better than this ..
Man !! it was a deadly experience ..I had made a wrong decision..the water was having such a high current that it almost bruised my toes and the nearby areas …I got all wet, the moment I started walking … I walked for the sake of walking but suddenly I thought what the hell am I going to do If they don’t switch off the air conditioner …I will get pneumonia ..so I should go back …there is no point in showing over sincerity…!
Auto, auto ..I screamed ..yes ..!!
Will u go to XYZ place ?..NO came the answer .and may I knw the reason was another question …yes coz it’s a jungle & nobody goes there … wtf ..jus mind your work !
Then came another one ..he said 120 bucks ..choice is yours ‘in’ or ‘out’?..I felt like saying u take 240 jus the double, but I shouldn’t get pneumonia ..deal ‘yes’ or ‘no’??
So there I was, shivering like hell cursing everyone ..and I mean everyone ..auto driver was trying to be a little friendly ..by giving lecture on ..traffic menace and water lodging problem …suddenly a biker came parallel to the auto and the water splashed in to my face and in my mouth ( a few drops ) it tested a little salty and eeeesksssss ..I yelled on him and probably he heard the FOUR LETTER word ..so the very next moment he apologized by holding his ears …leaving the clutch….by one hand and saying sorry ….good I thought & I felt like giving him an award !!
Autowala drove in to a one way..I mean the wrong side of the road coz there was a huge traffic jam on the other side of the divider…and he got stuck ..in between with cars and trucks from both the opposite directions....and then I saw the actual jam getting cleared …and I was like “who the freaking hell told u to show your stunts in this busy and one way road??” ..he was also pissed up like me so he jus stared at me …and then after almost half an hour got out f it !!
I reached my home alive, but the after effect still prevails *SNEEZEEEEEE*
