My College Trip to Chail - Part 2

As the bus started early morning around 7am, Amrita, one of my classmates thought it to be the best time to sleep. Lying on the last seat of the bus with herself been covered by a shawl from toe to head, she gave us a laughing start, we all tried to wake her up but our sleeping beauty had her way and slept for full 2 hours. I grabbed a window seat of the second last seat from the back and enjoyed the early morning views of Delhi, my hometown. It made me feel that to see the real beauty of Delhi, one should watch the early morning here with calm trees and sun rising slowly from its sleep.

We crossed the Delhi border and all those who were sleeping woke up and then we did breakfast in the bus itself. Having gained energy we were now ready to do some fun. Yes you are right, bus ride with friends is incomplete without a round of antakshri, so we played it and sang, danced and clicked snaps and really had a gala time. It was noon now and our bus stopped at a roadside dhaba. Having a meal at the dhaba while on trip is a great experience. Having sat for hours it was now that we all got down from the bus and strolled a bit. The sight was amazing as someone was walking like a cat, some like a tired hunchback and some still active and smelling the soil of the countryside.

Hey, guys its again interval time…Have your meals or go out for your important works, I will continue next time in part 3!

My College Trip to Chail – Part 1

Whenever I think of my college life, one thing that I always cherish is my college trip to Chail. I was in second year and the month was of November, when my lecturers arranged a college trip to Chail, one of the beautiful hill stations in Himachal Pradesh. Being in second year I and my classmates were lucky as we had seniors to rule us and on the other hand we had freshers to rule on. We were just 6 girls from second year the minority, yet the most fun loving group of girls.

The meeting point was our college itself and we were supposed to gather there by 6am in the morning. But the way standard Indian timings are considered 1 hour late than the actual time fixed, all reached up around 7am. My father took the trouble of waking up early and dropping me to the college and he bid me bye as our bus rolled on. All were excited because it was a trip that we organized after long trials by convincing at least 50 people so that the bus doesn’t go empty. Finally, it was the day and we all realized yes, we are on our trip to Chail now!

Guys, I will be back with what happened next during my exciting trip to Chail in part 2
