Riders from Patna, arrive in Jamshedpur

 Cofee and pastry to keep us company as we waited for the riders to show up

Few riders were to visit town from Patna,  club- brotherhood ( brs),
They had been amazing host and now it was our turn to do the same for them.

We had been to Patna for Harsha’s wedding and they had hosted us, we wanted to make it as good for them too.

RKMC club guys met up  presuming  the riders  would reach us by 1030hrs, but was more like 0039 hrs next day, when they did manage to reach us, & we were happy to see them and hang out with them yup our sleep gone for a toss, we had them check into Hotel Boulevard, a grand hotel of jamshedpur, knows for its old worlds charm, the staff at the hotel were very accommodating even at this late hour.

our guests from patna were 
2 riders and there better half in tow
1. PRATIMA sen

2. Kaushik

3. Nirmal &

4. Archana 

and then there were us, Deepak, sishir, me, Rakesh and Huzefa, Biswaroop, Sarabjeet

The  Usual exchange of memorabilia's from each club to the other

they had reached Jamshedpur,  covering a good 400 + km in 6 hours was very impressed with their riding skills and speed, guess the roads had helped them some, even if they had risen on state highways, Notorious for speed breakers

Now as they settled in, tummy of all were growling we were sure, 

Jamshedpur does not have too many night options, but we did manage to find a eatery that’s just opened a week back, and served good food even at this late hour.

The cruising was-  chinese , as it was quirk and it was a nice meal for sure 

It was very refreshing to eat, after the long ride ride for the riders, some of us local guys too dug into our 2nd dinner this night.

We were back at the hotel by 0200 hours a good nights rest later we met up for breakfast at Madrasi hotel and then on to find a house of one of the guests,

Archanas House in Jamshedpur

ARCHANA has a ancestral house we were lucky to find the house and did a few pictures there, and they were on there way by 0930 hours off to Patna, what a wonderfull time we had. God Speed and ride Safe.

IDIOT box effect

IF you have a idiot box operational in your house,

Other then losing time watching the TV,  it teaches you, your chidren and family how to be dishonest

A serial I see playing out and is popular on ZEE

The story line
The mother of the GUY hates his sons wife
So she  is trying to

1.  frame her sons wife for stealing
2, kill the girl by poison
3, hire goons to kill her
4. MOM is asking her friends how she can hurt her daughter-in-law

if any of this happens in your life, you know where your mom got the idea from

THE girl , she knows she is
1. framed
2.  her mom in law is trying to  poison her
3. her mom in law is willing ot get her son killed to hurt her

and she still puts up with these in name of duty and being a good daughter in law
makes me think the girl is responsible for her state of affair.

And this is being beamed into your house that you are paying for , to teach your
How to scheme and be a low life

What is it that we desire?
 why do we do what we do ?

why is it that when we are doing well it becomes a barrier for creativity ?
The sad days seem to encourage create more and better
The harder the days the better it is for creativity

Is this for everyone or just ME.

5 states in 30 hours

AH Another Train Journey I will be on a train for 30 hours and will be traversing 5 states,
What else but my camera for company as I go about making some interesting images

 Folks from different walks of life cross my path, I document them to show what the world is like today, apologies to the subject m if they are shown in a light they do not want to be see themselves in, but then that’s the truth, The camera never lies remember

The journey started at 0600 hours and was a sleepy day as we head out towards Igatpuri , n the early birds of Mumba are already on the way to  work or meet lovers or make there Moolah

The greenery and the fog are so swell to look at , and it keeps us ungagged to look out of the window and not let up, no mater how heavy the eyes felt for lack of sleep from the previous night, Had hit the bed at 2300 hours and was up at 0400 to get to the station and board the train,

The ticket collectors too cant keep there gastro juices quiet and gave in to there appetites,  as they catch a few bites in between doing there work and chitchatting amongst themselves   There is loads of paper work they have to fill, n just looking at it all just almost made me go to sleep, and I was not the only one sleepy.

And then there were the lovers who travelled to work, and caught a little time together before they hit there offices or where have you

Did I mention I love her chappals and her body language and dress, she was a women of today , “ who can “

The day rolled on, I meditated on my berth ( seat ) and then came across this gentleman, addressing his faith, n belief, to each there own in what makes India such a lovely place to traverse.

This particular journey has 28 stops and the passengers changed every few stations as the day turned to dusk, n various stories were exchanged , n some more conversations I spied as folks spoke loudly into there cell phones,

Transporters speaking ti drivers

Business owners asking for payment

Contractors getting updates of Project, It was all in a days work seemed like for most.

Then at a train station I got off to stretch and came across the couple oblivious to the world in each others arm, totally immersed, sleeping deep, after a tough day or now, How capital

A few hours later once more I was up n the train was traversing the 1800 km at a faster clip then usual maybe, as it was halted being before time, Not too often such happens with Indian Railways, but today it had happened, and give compliments to the Railways for doing its job efficiently

We were traversing Orissa early in the morning the rivers along the track looked ready to overflow the color of the river was muddy and lively, yes it has been a god monsoon this year and there had been more floods then ever, Maybe it is natures  way to curtail the population, to claim the land back that was being encroached by the man and his tribe,

IS it not amazing the first thing we do on most morning is to reach for the mobile and bury our nose into it, see who remembered me, who has liked out pictures, and so on.

Reached and deboarded, 0830 hours , Only 30 minutes late.
