My adventure with unconfirmed ticket

My adventure with unconfirmed ticket

One way flight from Delhi to Patna was costing Rs 20000 for one person for immediate booking and about Rs 5887 if booked two weeks in advance.  Train was costing Rs 1500 to 1800. But it was still out of my budget. Next day I checked Indian railways site and got 2 tickets booked @Rs 1300 which was reasonable price and within my budget. My friends and relatives had warned me that saving on tickets might cost me more. But I was adamant. They could spend Rs 5000 just for…

It was Friday and the office clock struck 5 in the evening. We planned to go out in the weekend. Myself, Karan, Atul, Michael, Christine and my wife-Niharika discussed places best suited for weekend so that we could join office on Monday.

Girlfriend waiting,bike keys left at home

I had to meet Neetu, my girlfriend today at 5.00 in the evening. I was excited as I had to propose her which was a surprise for her also. I woke up at 7.00 in the morning and shaved to look smart. I look 2-3 years older with beard and stubble on my long slim face and do not suit me as my complexion is dusky. I took bath and wore nicely ironed full sleeved white shirt with a pair of denim jeans. I chose black pair of polished shoes…

Man jumping through window-train catches speed

My wife and I were planning for a holiday. It had been a long time, almost a year when we had gone on holidays last time. We took auto from our home to Sarai Rohilla railway station. The traffic was not much. The train was scheduled for 9.10 PM and we reached at around 8 in the evening. It was difficult passing time on the platform. My wife wanted something to munch preferably popcorn and Jabson peanuts. Whenever she eats popcorn and peanuts smile comes on her face and this…

It was raining heavily and I lost my car’s keys

For many days, I was thinking of visiting Lajpat Nagar market, a posh market area in South Delhi. Today I got chance to visit Lajpat Nagar. This was not chance but my destiny. I was thinking of selling mobile phones on e-Commerce portals and had to visit mobile store to check the inventory and billing details. Otherwise the phones could have been delivered at my place in Rohini. At least people listen to me and take me seriously when I talk business. It had been warm and very humid weather…

Parking problem haunts me even in dreams

Parking problem haunts me even in dreams

Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi. You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool. Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your car. I dreamt of such issue in my dream today morning. I got married to a slim dusky girl. I had to leave for office and was getting ready when she asked me if I…

Love of old couple-Recoiled

It was June. Summer was at its peak. Dharampal was sleeping with his grandchildren on either side. Sleeping on the floor with bed sheets spread evenly on the floor was his favourite and he did not like sleeping on bed. This was in the genes of his grandchildren also. He saw Shraboni entering room of his son with sari border covering her head. She almost ran inside the room and locked the room from inside. Dharampal heard some noise and then lost in the thoughts of Kanta. Dharampal and Kanta…

I came early from the office. It was 7.00 PM in the office. I thought I should spend some time with my wife. Today I will have two extra hours that can be utilized effectively.

Then we would be going out for a long walk. My wife seemed happy as could…

It was Friday afternoon. I was in the office. Working on reconciliations. The clock showed 1.30 PM. Got a call from a bank for credit card. There was a girl whose sweet voice attracted me.

Every product has a life of 3-5 years and cannot be life time free”. She said “Sir please take this card…
