My Tiring Voyage – End

Hello everybody, this will be my last post about journey. In this post I’ll tell you about last parts of my journey i.e. Delhi to Guwahati & then from railway station to IITG..

First of all I’m sorry for posting this late. Actually I was having some problems with the blogger & my posts. All the problems are now fixed courtesy my friend Preetinder. So without much delay here I will start with chapter 3.

Chapter 3 (From Delhi to Guwahati).

Every thing was going according to the plan. I reached railway station (with my friends) at 11:45 am approx. I asked enquiry about platform of train. It was 12 – nearest to us. The train came as it was scheduled & finally around 1:40 pm we were inside the train – Seats reserved not a single problem. The AC in the train was refreshing & was helping me in overcoming the tiredness that had crawled in to my body. The seat reserved were in one line i.e. Lower, middle & upper births – So no problem there as well.

Train left the Delhi station at 2:00 pm. I made a call back home & told that everything was fine.
You know one great thing with Rajdhani is that they never let u feel thirsty or hungry. Something will be on its way after one hour or so. LOL.

First of all, bottles of water were given followed by a lot of other stuff – Kambals & towels, bed sheets (it gets quite cold when constant AC is on & u r not much used to it) & other foodstuff.
I occupied the upper seat & started reading a fiction novel (Angels & demons). After all reading fiction novels is one of my favorites time pass along with relaxation. AP & KD started took a newspaper & started solving Soduko or a game like that- I don’t know much about that. The seat was a comfortable one & everything was much better than bus journey.

As the time progressed the train neared the destination. The dinner was served around 8 & after dinner soup was there & food quality was ok. After that I slept around 10.Really a sound sleep. Only regret was that waiter in train, to give tea, at 6 am waked me up. Yar main apni puri college life vich kade 6 vaje nahi udhiya- par chalo kee kar sakde see.

The day progressed like any normal day, I kept on reading novel but this time I was reading ‘Harry potter & the sorcerers stone’ & in between ‘Angels & demons’ (Both books r rocking). KD was reading ‘Godfather’ & AP ‘The inscrutable Americans’ (Cool book).
Like mentioned already they wont let u feel hungry & will keep on serving something after hour or so & finally lunch at 2. After lunch it was the time again for a bit of sleep. When I Woke up it was raining outside. The sight of nature was awesome. I clicked some pictures with my cell & also made a small video clip.

At last train reached Guwahati around 7:45 (late by more than one hour). At last most of the journey was over but still one question was left that how we’ll reach IITG. I made a call at number given to me by professor at IIT. The person on other end gave me the address from where the bus will leave for IIT & we started towards the given address.

Epilogue

We hired an auto to reach at the given address. It hardly took 2 minutes to reach there. But still we just missed the bus leaving for IIT (at 8:15). Thank god it was not the last bus. The last bus was at 8:45 and that took us to the IITG hostels.

Well that was all. All the main points concerning ‘My Tiring Voyage’.. Rest about life here & other things I’ll write soon….

Till then bye.
