Last but one day and the last day of any holiday trip are the two days I never want them to come but they do come. It is one of the inevitable happenings.
My heart filled with the feeling that I’ll be leaving behind so much of fun. Its true too, but, again, you can’t help it always. I’ve had a memorable holiday trip, especially this time, meeting so many relatives, family friends, and friends. Had I not got my stomach upset I would have chewed the pleasure more. Unfortunately it was out of my control. Or may not, it was, but I could not grab it. Anyway, still its one of the most satisfying long break from work.
After a long time of five years I met one of my friends. She is married and settled in Hyderabad. After seeing her, the way she has been maintaining her house, some crazy memories of our graduation days flashed in my mind! How childish we were then! How lazy! Oops, life teaches many lessons. Also, it makes us do what we are supposed to do. Not everyone feels satisfied with all, but still life is undoubtedly beautiful. We started remembering our old friends, good olden days, lab mishaps, New Year bashes, movie trips, exam blues etc and time ran faster than anything. We had very good time! I felt happy with myself that I could make it to her house at least this time round.
Luggage packing is one of the happiest things to do while going on a holiday. While returning back, nothing else could be more boring and annoying. Be it for five days or for fifteen days, holiday is a holiday and the last day of the holiday is never liked. I had to search for my things in the big house, which also got affected with the relative rides on the eves of Marriage and Diwali. Finally, I could pack everything except the tooth-brush. I’m very sure; this is the one item that’s forgotten the most by many!
Bidding farewell is anyway a tough job and if it is to be done after having so much of fun, it hurts more. When Pinni and Babai waves bye for me, I remembered the way my mom, dad and grand dad use to wave it for me every time I start from home after holidays.
Only after getting into the train I realized that the other ticket I forgot to cancel was also booked in the ladies quota as well as the one I was currently traveling in. Berth number 4 and 5 of the ladies reservation quota; one was from my hometown and the other from Hyderabad. I was little upset that I didn’t cancel it in time. But, to my surprise, it turns so satisfying at the end of the journey. There was a girl traveled with me with no reservation. I told her that the vacant berth was mine and she could take it. You can not give 250 Rs to a girl who is working and make her feel happy. With that extra ticket I forgot to cancel I could give her sound sleep for a night and lot of peace to her heart. That was one of the satisfactorily done journeys I had been through.
Happiness and satisfaction stays within us, within our thinking, nothing is beyond!
Finally, back in Pune! Back to work! This post ends my holiday postings. I will return with my regular writings soon.
