It was on the first day of the year. My father's old friend asked us to join him on a day-trip to a nearby town Sirpur (Shirpur). As it would be a 80 km long journey from Raipur, we set out without cars by 7:00 a.m., to save the morning traffic-which has always been a hazardous matter in the state of Chattisgarh.

Raipur - BilaspurTo reach Bilaspur, I took a flight to Raipur - the nearest airport. I waited at the airportarrivals as one by one my girl gang members arrived at the airport from different Indian cities. Raipur airport arrival section was clean and well organized. The food options here are very limited but you will find many options for shopping. The one that caught my eye was a government shop - Chhattisgarh herbal products.
