15th June 2009…hello…hello…hello…trin…trin…It was the refreshing morning @ 5:05 AM and I woke up with lots of plan for upcoming trip of SANCHI (Stoop). I hardly slept for 2 hours in night and so I knew I will have to sleep in the TAVERA to maintain my strength for whole day: P. Everybody was informed to be present at SARDA HOUSE @ Impetus @sharp 5:45 but…Plan is a different thing and execution is another and that is a feature of human life as well, I am right on the button, aren’t I? Hemant was eating mango @ 5:30 Am (What the hell was that? My chhotu kid) I was communicating with Anshuman bhai & munal regarding the timing & current things. Finally all were ready & at the SARDA house around 6:15 AM but now it was a time for a driver to play pranks: D. Some of us were bit unhappy with the delay from driver’s part and rightly so…why to waste time just because of diver’s laziness? After all we are paying MONEY!!! I know the mentality of drivers; I have lot of friends in my village who are working as drivers in local vehicles and so I know the Do’s and Don’ts. I was not in hurry & no meaning was there since that thing was not under our control…final 6375 TAVERA came & I was bit relaxed. Jay & I were waiting @ Sarda & Mahesh bhai(MB), Anshuman bhai(AB), Amin Shah Bhai(AS), Hemant & munal had already left for “Rajsthan Hotel” for breakfast & tea. We completed or tea & “Break” fast (it is called breakfast since it breaks fast: D).^#&%(6375+SHIFT) was set to fly for SANCHI after replacement of Driver…
Now it was a tricky time since I was bit afraid how all will mix with each other but fortunately I didn’t need to give much attention on that issue and the reason was the movie “Jungle Love”. Before you make any guesses, let me clarify that it’s a Hindi Tarzan Movie. It started with a bang…Samir was the lyrix writer & lyrix was “sard hawa jab chalti hai sui chubh kar jati hai…” You must be wondering what the hell…but believe me, except me all were not willing to watch the movie…:D I can see any movie if it is not horror & violent but once it started with that song, Jungle Love attracted all. Another reason was that we didn’t have any other movieL. Background music, Dialogs, Story was amazing and eventhough munal was not willing to watch, he changed his seat and came in front…what was the reason munal??? RITA?? Hey… Jungle Love has one boy who is kind of Tarzan & named “RAJA” (Partner, what are you thinking??) by RITA, the girl who came to accompanied his father for treasure hunt (Khajana kaha hai :p).It is a must watch movie & we enjoyed every bit of it in the journey: p. we took a break in Bhopal for tea & then moved on for SANCHI.
Sourabh told me to visit the hotel of MP tourism & we found it soon and entered inside with lots of enthusiasm. Few pics were clicked & masti was going on… plans were in making & suddenly I thought let me ask @ the counter about nearby famous places & we got to know about VIDISHA & UDAYGIRI caves & we made sudden change in the plan . We took the lunch & again pics…Yeah man…why the hell we should visit places if we don’t have anything like Digicam You can’t keep me away from my cam. Then the moment came we all were waiting for…we reached at the SANCHI STOOPs & it was a delightful experience…Mr. Guide was in full flow & wanted to share knowledge he was having with lots of excitement & some of us were thinking if he would have met earlier in our life than we would have scored good marks in history . Believe me, Guides now a day have lots of knowledge & they use internet as well so don’t try to be smart.
Mr. Guide explained all historical events available on sculpture with utmost details. STOOPS had various gates & each little thing has its own meaning…Lord Buddha’s life was the subject of the art available on STOOPs. 200 RS was worth. STOOPs architecture, explained by Mr. Guide was really interesting…at that time also lots of care were taken & logic was involved in the building process of monument. 3 main STOOPs were there and we got all information we wantedJ. We visited museum & temple as well in SANCHI & we were ready for UDAYGIRI caves.
UDAYGIRI caves were 14 kms away from the SANCHI & we again clicked…clicked & clicked at various caves: p. It was a fascinating experience and CAVEs were bonus in our trip. Suddenly the environment was changing colors (Mausam rang badal raha tha ). Rain started…Rain was falling CHHAMA CHHAM CHHAM…there was no girl thoughL so koi aankh nahi mar sakta tha aur na hi hum gir sakte the…hahahaha. I was feeling strength less and tired & so I decided to sleep in the returning journey…and make no mistake…JUNGLE LOVE continued at that time as well .
Hemant was out of control since it was a tea time for him & finally all were agreed to stop somewhere to have a TEA. And there we found MUKESH BHOJNALAYA & no one knew that history was in making…I took disprin as usual to run away from the headache and asked for 1 tea…PARATHA was ordered simple & aaloo wala. And the all of a sudden race started for TEA…AS was ordering tea 1 after another & as a chain drinker my ego awaken me up & I started as well…everything was in mess…everyone of us went mad and ordering tea and paratha…Hotel boys were amused & we were laughing like anything…there was no limit and everyone was happy…we were counting tea cups we had consumed & finally I was announced as winner for consuming 6 cups of tea: D. we were 8 person, Jay opted for cold drinks so among 7 we finished 31 cups of tea & we were like what the hell…8-10 parathas…everyone in the hotel was watching us and we didn’t care for a single one…
Environment changed its color by mixing sun & rain by producing RAINBOW & you know what … Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colors appear. It was a pleasure to experience those colors but in life, I am not willing to have those contents which produce the colorsJ. Nobody ever want to have sun & rain both in his/her life but its natural…Sign curve…remember???
SANCHI TRIP was full of excitement but the real tadka was provided by TEA MASTI & JUNGLE LOVE. We have plans in our hand for future trips but let’s see if we will be able to execute the same or notJ.
We reached INDORE @ 11 pm tired & exhausted but we were happy…it was nice to see that Jay, Hemant, AB, AS, MB & Munal gave their best shot in all FUN & MASTI. There are lot of things in life you need to see & experience…There are lot of things which push you forward in life & give lots of happiness & those things have no reason for their existence. It is a proven fact but still we are running somewhere else & loose ourselves.
I hope this trip will provide the “starter” for other exciting trips.
