Dang!

There have been too many Dang! moments in my life of late. Just as a note, this term has no reference to the famous Dr Dang in the 1986 movie Karma, even though I think that was Anupam Kher's most diabolical role ever - even though the most diabolical villian will always be Mugambo. But, thats another topic altogether. I picked up Dang! from Jughead, because I have an Archie comics addiction. Not as bad an addiction as my father though!
Anyways...
I'm looking out of the office window and it doesn't look too good, there is a wall of water smashing into the high-rises on all sides and I suddenly remembered I left my umbrella at home. The rain is ferocious, and in the distance the waves are crashing onto the seawall. And even though you want to go stand on Marine Drive, its just too wet!
Dang!
Anyway, I heading off to Delhi for a few days to visit home, attend the serpentine wedding (and meet more friends) and generally pick up the pieces of my life from all over the floor (long story!). As well as attend mommy's birthday, and thanks to the kindly folks over at Air Deccan who have made super-cheap travel possible (I got return tickets for Rs 4700) but I'm pretty sure that I'll swear off the airline again after their pilot will put me through the wringer.
I guess I'll also drop by office, I'm sure people there are dreading to have to see my face again. But, there are so many things to do and lots to eat, but the World Cup comes first. And like an idiot I'll miss the first game - the price you gotta pay for cheap tickets.
Dang! Dang! Dang!

Bona - one trip was official and twice I did a couple of two-day trips (weddings mainly). I've not been to Delhi since Mid-Feb, so its been a while.

Bhai K, why for you are not trying the Go Air maybe? And 4700/- return on Air Deccan is good but running for better seats?

K said...

GBO, interesting about the running for better seats - I managed to get 14F - emergency exit second row! More on my Air DEccan experience later.

Is it you or has someone blatantly copied your post on Vidarbha ?

Naming and shaming, thanks P!
