A huge vacuum is there.

Had been to Rajnandgaon recently on a sunday, to oversee the work of Audio Video — cables, setup, projectors, televisions, speakers, satellite relay etc in Masjid — interior being redone.
While in Mumbai, I was travelling in auto rickshaw from Marol to Andheri railway station, at a signal, the auto stopped. There was a car a lane besides, the driver kept watching me curiously. Then suddenly asked my name and confirmed my status. Then said that he used to be my student in Jamali English School and his name was Adil. On enquiry said that he is working in Bangalore, but presently in Mumbai for some work. I did not recognize him, he was a student then in his school days, but he remembered me by face.
What a coincidence. Teacher’s job surely pays back. Felt very good.
After a long time… even if its short, it feels LOnnnggggg, had been to Mumbai for a day, actually lived there for some hours, from 12.30pm till 8.15pm only. But gained a lot.
Had a trip to Rajnandgaon in my Tata Indica DLS — wont ever forget it. The distance traveled is very less, just 430 km, but the time taken is huge, approx 14.30 hrs.
We left early morning at 6 in the morning so that we shall reach our destination earlier and after finishing our work (which will take 30 mins max) will return back to Nagpur by early afternoon. But fate had some other plans.
After a short drive of 10 km, vehicle engine got hot, there was no coolant, after putting water into it, drove slowly for about 60-70 kms so that shops open and we get coolant. The roads are so good, that we can easily find them in between the potholes. Road is there, of course. The toll tax paid road is also in shambles now. After a further short drive, the tyre got punctured and we changed to another tyre and proceeded ahead.
While returning, the vehicle was vibrating, so we contacted a mechanic, he said the bearings are gone and we need to change them. Further ahead, another mechanic proved that bearings are good, tyre is having problems. Further ahead, another tyre got burst and we were short of money. Somehow the mechanic agreed to change and we kept our tools with him as security. The nearest ATM was 25 kms backwards and 20 kms in front. The money is still pending to be paid while I write this, and will be paid on friday, inshallah. The tools are with him only.
Safely reached home at 8.30pm.
During the month of Ramadan, mistakenly, hurriedly bought Sony Xperia C1604 — anyone buying it out, please don’t. After a few days of usage, the phone is extremely slow to respond. Looking ahead to sell it off and buy another good option phone.
@Sony — completely dissatisfied with your costly Xperia series phone.
While trip to Burhanpur is on hold, looking forward to a 12-hour stay in Mumbai.
This time again, we visited Starkey, a friend dropped out being out of Nagpur, another two joined and we also took our kids with us to enjoy the evening. We left again at 3pm and left Starkey at 6. It rained heavily while we were on the highway, which city showed no signs of rains at all. Interesting trip once again.
Next ? May be after monsoon now.
Once again, after a long time, friends visited Starkey Resort on Amravati Road, about 6 years later. Nothing has changed, even the charges are same.
Looking forward to go there again and again and again and …..
The best joke was: 700 ke snacks, 600 ka khana.
In Delhi, one of the colleague suggested we eat at Barbeque Nation instead of going to Chandni Chowk and having our dinner there. We all agreed, as it was just besides our hotel also and we would save on time travelling to and fro.
Loved the theme, concept, food at Barbeque Nation. Its basically eat-all-you-can in Barbeque offers provided by them. Unlimited Starters, followed by main course and sweets and the most important and the best part was having a live charcoals placed on our table to keep the starters hot!!!
