Stuck amongst the cars and two wheelers- we prayed, hoping to reach on time. Damn the traffic- we should have left earlier.
Juggling my 2 bags & a suitcase, i reached just in time. Window seat ma’m? Sure, I said.
Small talk with acquaintances:
Oh hi- how come you’re in bangalore? I’m on vacation, have cousins here. What about you?
Partly work,partly vacation..
you have quite a lot of luggage huh?
*i can see that too, i’m not blind like duh* -thats what went thru the mind
Reality- (sheepish grin)- yeah i guess..
Finally, in the flight…
Seat next to mine: empty (not bad i get to keep my bag on it)
Next seat, comes Wierdo (name will be revealed later)
Now Wierdo was a 25 yr old African( thats what he told me). He kept his bag on the empty seat (where the hell am i sup2 keep my bag now..shit)
Are we taking off now?- he asks
Yes we are.( oh god..why can’t he wait for the english announcement..fool)
Are you from bangalore?

Are you a student?
Are you a student in bangalore?

Again Wierdo started asking some silly question in his wierd accent…i cut him short asking him for his book lying idle:

Enough- i turned my face & took a brief nap. this fool just isn’t shutting up.
Are we landing now?

Do you have mobile? (in the most wierd accent)
Can i have your number? (ohhh man i didn’t see this comingg@)
I’m sorry i don’t just give my number to Strangers i meet on the plane!
But why? I’m a forgeiner? (dude…so what..gives u an edge over indian guys or wat!!)

Later…while stepping out of the flight
So what is the population of kolkata?

So finally we are at your hometown, while taking the trolley (mommmaa where are you…)
I took a trolley & walked off in the opposite direction. (good lord)
