Graveyard Shift!

Trust Indian Railways! Dad was supposed to leave in the evening today, but the train got delayed by 9 hours! So now, he'll be leaving Patna at around quarter to 3 in the night! Which means that we both have to wake up at about 1:30 in the middle of the night! The perfect timing for our graveyard shift in the Dell BPO!


On top of that, the peaceful "overnight journey" becomes a tiring "day journey"! Talk about boredom! The icing over the cake is that "late trains" usually tend to get more delayed on the way! So now there's no saying when he will finally reach Delhi tomorrow! Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Anyways, everything is a bit of a turmoil right now. Well, not everything... it's just my brain actually, that is kinda messed up. I don't really enjoy waking up in the middle of the night to catch a train. In all probability, I'll be so stressed out, that I'll keep waking up every 10 minutes or so, to check the time! And oh, I just remembered... Dad has a lower berth! Poor him!

Well, I guess I'll sign off now. See you all tomorrow. Good night!

Patna! one of the places i have marked for my next vacation. But tel me one thing- why should i come to Patna? Can you sell Patna to me?

Yea, lower birth is not the best place on earth.Too many distractions. But who travels by train to sleep? But wish your dad a great journey. TC

I wouldn't even bother trying to sell Patna to you! :p Actually, it's more or less like any developing town of our country now... buildings (read: "malls") under construction at several places, too much traffic, horns, pollution, concrete...

If you're going alone, then definitely, night journeys are easier to pass than daytime ones. But with a group/family, day travel is the best... I agree! :D
