This time I am not alone. Infact, I will soon be joining the entire family. Renu and I left Bangalore yesterday night for Manmad. And so did Papaji and Mammi from Lucknow. What more, Vaibhav will join us from Mumbai!!
So, a full family gathering at Manmad – a half for us en route Shirdi.
Yesterday, when I looked at the final reservation charts, I was a little confused as to what is PQWL and that too two people were alloted the same seat. Then it turned out that the other person will board at Manmad.
That was 7pm yesterday evening.
And then the compartment where our seats were confirmed, the remainder of it was alloted to a family from Tamil Nadu but now settled in Bangalore.
So, we shifted for “seat exchange”.
That was a live compartment because of family and kids. And this is a real dumb one with people confined to themselves.
Anyway, that’s how the life also is – a journey with lots of twists.
Because of cold and no-pillow head-rest during sleep last night, Renu’s back – neck specifically – is in pain. She just can’t turn her head around right now.
Waiting for Manmad to get down and get some medicines for her.
So, we should reach by 3pm. My parents should arrive by 2pm while Vaibhav by 12-1pm! Hurray!
