From Konkan, Sept’10

From Konkan, September 2010

Travel by train indeed lends the much needed sense of a journey to any destination.

@ Roha station –

There is a feeling of getting off in to nature’s green cushion as the platform is covered with swaying green grass, some plants and trees too. The monsoon has indeed converted a concrete platform into a green lawn.

@ Suraveen Resort , Ratnagiri –

My meeting for the day is over. Train –bus- bus – and train again later. As I sit here at the beach staring at the sea, it feels like I am on a tired vacation. The beach sets the perfect mood for a vacation but the mind is tired of the travel, the meeting & the up-coming travel & meetings.

What can really make the hot afternoon a little pleasant, is a happy cheerful smiling waiter.

Mr. Smiley: Good afternoon Madam. Kitne log hain?

Me: Koi nahi hai yaar. Main akeli hoon.

Mr. Smiley: Lunch?

Me: Nahi Nahi. Kuch peene ke liye??

Mr. Smiley: Snacks?

Me: Menu leke aao.

(Mr. 🙂 brings the menu)

Me: Ek watermelon juice. Sugar mat dalna … aur ek mineral water. Thanda Nahi.

After finishing the juice and while I am typing this:

Mr. Smiley: Glass leke jaau?

Me: Haan yeh wala. Yeh doosra rehne do.

Mr. Smiley: Madam – paani dalu?

Me: Nahi Nahi. Thank you

Phew !!!!!!!!!!!!

After all this overdose of smiles, and thank you’s – I leave behind a handsome tip and a giggling waiter.
