Yeh i m reading this book started yesterday the first few pages sounds excellent and i m already liking this author, he looks smart too. So as you know i have been to gujarat, i would have never traveled alone so when cousin1 said k he need to go to baroda, i readily said yes because this would be most probably my last visit to that place. He, me and another friend M decided to go, luckily go a reservation in tatkal. The problem with this place is that all trains to north reach here at 2.50 in the morning, so had to spoil the sleep for that.. Reached goa and bought some whiskey near the railway station.. started drinking in the noon and the remaining later in the night.
Reached early morning, stayed at cousin’s friend’s place. He finished his work and in the noon we sat drinking with his friends, in evening called R1 met him in the night, went to RNG’s place and drank there and came back and slept at R1s place. Met krishna the same day in the evening, his daru ka dhanda is doing very good and he is minting money.. this guy is gonna be rich in a few years. His assistant chotu left him, he kept 2 other assistant he concentrates fulltime in daru ka dhanda. Its a risky work but he is so desperate to make money that he doesnt mind living his life in constant fear of being caught, i know about it i have lived that kinda life, the fear always creeps in at the night. A distant police siren leaves you sleepless. Thats why i reduced risks and took a middle path. R2 was busy on that day in his babagiri stuffs but promised to meet the next day.
Next day i kept my samaan at R1s house, i met R2 talked some time. R1 and R2 are not in talking terms, may be i told you about the incident where they were drunk and met with an accident, people gheraoed them and that moment R2 ran from the backseat of the car leaving R1 in the mess. Yeh R2 in very gandphattu. In the same case i would not have ran away but would not have tried to save him either, i m incapable of violence and i m introvert. R1 had a tight month due to year end and these last months are very busy for people in sales field yet he managed to take his day off. We decided for a trip to a place some 80kms from here. I, rng and R1 went.. nice place you can get chilled bear can for rs100 each, bough six of them and sat at a dhaba, drank there and ate desi chicken. The receipie was very different from what i have tasted till now. On the way back stopped at a lake, bought more bear and drank there.. further stopped near a mountain which had a jharna.. it was in the inside a jungle so trekked there.. it was all jungle and we got lost, but we kept saying lets find the jharna but rng was afraid, always carrying stones if any wild animals attacked. We told him some dangerous adventures of our past to make him more afraid. It was fun, it was now dark and we went back without seeing the jharna.. the feeling of getting lost is just so awesome. Reached baroda drank again and slept.
Next day left to surat for 3some uncle’s place. Bought some pirated books near baroda railway station. I always buy the pirated ones from there if not buying online. Why pay exorbitant money to rich publishers and authors. Instead let some risk taking indian entrepreneur make money, and unlike dvds these money doesnt go to the underworld.
At 8 pm reached uncle’s place.. to be continued in next post.
P.S. post got much longer than i had anticipated, things that happened at uncle’s place needs a more detailed narration this time.. so will do it in the second part.
