The thing I love and hate about our lifestyle in Bharat is the total disregard for time.
Take for example, my current road trip .
Well as it goes, it was supposed to start yesterday, that is saturday early morning, but thanks to the changing weather, some colds, unavailable and delayed spares, a typical lack of organizational trait and also, a troublesome engine which coughs up a complaint at its whim(road worthy or raid worthy:P), and other inexplicable reasons, we stand delayed by a day and a half.
To put things into better perspective, I am typing this on sunday at 1:30PM and I am still home :D.
This is turning into a road trip which I made without knowing the route I was taking, how long would it take, how much fuel would we burn, and when would we hit home turf: Simla/Chandigarh.
Will we cover the distance in two and a half day, three days, three and a half days... well my guess is as good as anyone else's.
Personally, being the navigator in the team, I should take it a little more personally since i m supposed to be the brains behind this maths, but this is different.
And then again, the silver lining here is that this is the most unplanned and uncertain I have ever felt, and I m enjoying every moment of this insane feeling of losing control.
Maybe all trips should begin once you hit the road!
P.S. "Grow Up Aman! !"
