6th March, 2019- Finally the day arrived as I along with my parents boarded Howrah - Yeswantpur Superfast Express (12863/12864) from Howrah Railway Station at 8:35 pm. Since Daringbadi does not have its own railway station or an airport, there are three main ways to reach there:- 1) By railways- One has to get down at Brahmapur station in Orissa and then take a car to reach Daringbadi( Distance- 120 kms from Brahmapur station). 2) By airways- One has to travel to Bhubaneswar airport and then take a car from the airport to reach Daringbadi( Distance- 246.1 kms from Bhubaneswar International Airport). 3) By roadways- One has to take the Mumbai Expressway to reach Daringbadi.

Now, coming to us, due to our diligence towards our respective professions we (un)fortunately stay away from each other by 1800 km or so; and that’s why, we decided to meet at New Delhi Railway station and would start for Himachal right from there. Accordingly, on that auspicious day, with the whistle of 12301 Howrah Rajdhani Exp dot at 16:55 hrs, the journey commenced.

We boarded a fine train from Howrah early morning. The train was packed with tourists from every corner of Kolkata. What I liked in this Train was the variety of food that was served and that too at a very reasonable rate. So I savored pakoras, idlies in the short journey of five hours!
