There are times when the urban nomad living peacefully inside, rebels against the nonchalance of the daily life and challenges you to attempt the most unexpected. What did you do this time, you ask? Accepting the challenge of enduring a road trip as crazy as Delhi to Kolkata!
The mornings started feeling chilly and I could smell the Shiuli flowers from 2000 km away. It’s that time of the year! Durga Puja. Every Bong millennial’s sweetest dream. It’s that time of the year that makes every Desi person homesick. For it brings the never-dying allure of reuniting with family in the disguise of religion- Durga puja to Chhat puja to Diwali. Autumn is bliss.
I have made quite a name for myself in the inner circle for being crazy. Much to my surprise, I got 3-4 volunteers to join me in this historic trip. I was glad that the cost of Rs. 35000 for the hired cab is not going to burn hole in my pocket anymore. Not to forget the journey now will be of laughter and fun and a series of good times.
