My journey from Panipat to Hissar.
Panipat is same as Hissar, in terms of weather conditions and also in terms of infrastructure and all but quite famous for the handlooms and powerlooms. Its always been the summers destination because of my Nanaji and Naniji being there. It was quite hot and as usual the power cuts worsening the situation further so it was no better than being at home. But Home is always the best. And i would bet we all were thinking in our minds, the old proverb in Hindi on our way back "Laut ke budhhu ghar ko aaye" ;-)
We had quite an adventurous journey back home today.Infact always the journey to Panipat has got to to be adventurous atleast on one side. So let me start with my journey stint ;-)
Today we reached the Panipat bus stand at 6 in the morning, and there was a bus scheduled at 6.15, quite a nice bus, so we were happy that journey will go good. The journey started at 6.15, and around 7, the driver noticed a sound coming from the bus's engine, so he stopped to check it and finally declared that the bus can't move further.. so here starts the adventure.
Also another thing to mention, the frequency of buses on that route is quite less, so we waited there for half an hour, when the next bus came and we all got into it, quite a huge rush. My brother had to travel for another one and half hour standing, i got a seat after half an hour, and my mother got half a seat. This goes till the midpoint of the journey. Then we reach Jind, the mid point actually. There we all got full seats but not for a long time. As another lot was waiting as the previous bus hadn't come, so quite a huge rush got in. So an old fat auntyji, who would be called "Tayi" in typical haryanvi language,requested us to make her fit in :P So me, my mother and tayi we came sitting on 2 seats till Hansi. Then finally the rush got down and we all came till hisar that is actually half an hour journey quite comfortably. So what do you think how was our journey.. ;)
So Home is always the best. And i would bet we all were thinking in our minds, the old proverb in Hindi on our way back "Laut ke budhhu ghar ko aaye" ;-)
