Mumbai Mega Gangout part I
—————————————–

Regulars of this blog meeting with one another on a one to one basis has been going on from 2010 onwards. It first happened in Nagpur, when Raja ( my long time online acquintance since 2004) decided to pay a visit to Nagpur to meet me as well as another Nagpur based fellow cricket and HFM enthusiast. Friday, 29 october 2010 became the first occasion when I met a blog contributor and it was Raja, who also happened to be the first visitor, first commentor, first guest contributor etc etc of the blog. This meeting that lasted some three hours was a memorable occasion for me. I had mentioned this meeting in a writeup that I posted the next day.

It was on 15 march 2012 when I first met Sudhir Ji at Delhi. I have since met him on several occasions all in Delhi ( except on 21 december 14, when I met him at Mumbai as well). On a couple of these occasions, we went to visit AK as well. We were joined by Mr Bakshish Singh on two or three occasions. These visits have been discussed in a few posts that can be accessed here.

The first time when regulars of this blog specifically planned a get together involving more than two or three contributors was on october 2014, when as many as five regulars specifically planned and met in Bangalore. This meeting, now remembered as Bangalore Gangout, took place on 5 october 2014 at Raja’s residence in Bangalore. He was joined by Pradeep Raghunathan from Chennai as well as by three Bangalore based ladies namely Peevesie’s mom, Peevesie and Aparna H M. They were joined remotely on hangout by Sudhir ji (from Delhi), Khyati Bhatt (from LA, USA) and Mr Arunkumar Deshmukh (from Mumbai). The interesting details of this Bangalore Gangout can be read here.

After the Bangalore Gangout, vision for a bigger meet like this at Mumbai began to appear sometime in late october and gradually it began to take a concrete form. Mumbai was the chosen venue for the reason that it is home to several of our regulars and to add icing to the cake, Khyati Bhatt was also arriving to Mumbai from the land of Clint Eastwood. After lots of developments, revision in planning etc, 21 december 2014 was decided as the date for this meet. The original plans visualised a meeting of around 12-13 regulars of the blog. But various personal reasons meant that at least four- five regulars had to drop their plans to attend the meet. Still a good number of regulars finally managed to meet up on the appointed day at the appointed place.

What about me ? I was not sure till the last moment whether I was going to make it to the meet. I was a non participant in the enthusiastic e mail communications that were being exchanged among the regulars for the last two months. Sudlhir Ji was entrusted with the task of ensuring my attendance at the meet. 🙂 And he would periodically enquire about my availability at the meet. I informed him that I would be able to confirm my availability only at the last moment. Sudhir ji enquired on 17 december whether that last moment had arrived by then. :).

All these days, my worries were that my presence may be required at the workplace for some important matters (important for me, but almost unnoticeable for aam janta, of course 🙂 ) that were going to take place around the dates close to 21 december 2014. But I realised that those important matters happened almost like clockwork and I felt like I was going to make it to the meet after all. Though the meet was on a Sunday, the journey time meant that I was likely to be away from workplace even on monday. So I needed leave for that day and also the permission to be away from Saturday till monday.

While I felt happy that I was going to make it, I was on two minds about the logistics of my visit to journey. The conventional way was to board a morning train of 20 december 14 and arrive at Mumbai on the morning of 21 december 14, some 24 hours later. Then attend the meet and board the return train on the night of 21 december, and arrive back on the night of 22 december, after 24 hours of journey. 48 hours of journey for an eight hours meet ! While I looked forward to the meet, I dreaded the amount of time it was going to take me in my journey if I travelled by train.

As we all know, most people in India try to save money even if it means wasting time. People, including our auditors talk of money being wasted. But I have yet to come across any serious discussion on the amount of time being wasted in avoidable activities. Our auditors tell us how much money has been wasted in various projects, but they never tell us how much valuable time have got wasted in them. To my mind, if a project gets completed in lesser time (even if it means spending more money) then it turns out to be far more economical and beneficial in the long run. If a project takes decades intead of say a couple of years, then it is certain that the money required in that project over those decades will be far more that what it would take if the project is completed in two years.

To cut a long story short, I decided that I would try and cut down on my journey time, even if it meant spending money. I decided to fly to Mumbai and come back by the same way. The nearest airport for me is Raipur, and direct flights between Raipur and Mumbai take two hours. I planned to fly by an early morning flight to Mumbai and take a return flight in the evening.

While a suitable morning flight was available from Raipur to Mumbai, the return flight in the evening was too early. So I decided upon the next best alternative. I decided to take an evening flight to Nagpur and from there take a night train back. That way I was back to my base by monday morning.

I did all that planning, booking etc at the last moment and did that online. Making these booklings online from the comforts of one’s home/office is a modern day facility that modern day technologies gives us. It has made our lives so simple and comfortable that can only be appreciated by those who are familiar with the time consuming manual process that was in vogue in the pre internet days, just a few years ago.

There are people who pack their luggage much in advance (like my wife and daughter), but I pack my luggage at the eleventh hour and 55th minute. 🙂 And I wanted to travel with the bare minimum luggage , viz a bag that could be carried as hand luggage. When I searched, I could not find a bag that would serve my purpose. It was saturday (20 december) and I was free this day. So I decided to go and get myself a bag of my liking. And I did exactly what my wife had done just a couple of days back. She had gone to a mall and bought a bag which she had then carried back with her. She tends to buy a bag each time she visits me and that bag goes back with her, bursting at the seams. 🙂

I did something else there before I bought my bag. The mall had multiplexes showing PK. The movie had released just the previous day and the local newspaper had carried a glowing review of this movie. And this was another reason that had drawn me towards this mall. So I bought a ticket and watched the movie. And I loved this movie. After the show was over, I bought a bag that could contain my travel computer plus some other luggage and could still pass muster as a hand bag. And then I came back home.

After getting the permission to leave the headquarters (even if it was the weekend) was one of the worries. The other bigger worry was the weather. It was so cold that just the thought of staying outdoors at night time gave me shivers. I knew that my flight to Mumbai was in morning time on 21 december, but I had to reach Raipur at night time ! I had toyed at the idea of catching an early morning train to Raipur but I dropped the idea seeing that the few trains scheduled at that hour were running late and relying upon them would be foolhardy. So I arrived Raipur by the night of 20 december itself. My plan was to get ready early morning before six o clock and report at the Raipur airport. I wanted to travel as light as possible, viz with just one hand bag. I did not need to carry any clothes with me once I had taken bath and changed into fresh clothes. So I sent the bag containing my clothes back and went to the airport early in the morning.

This writeup has become long enough as it is so I will discuss my journey in the next installment. This writeup should suffice for the time being.

As mentioned above, I watched PK second day second show on 20 december. It was then that I became aware of the songs of the movie.

Aamir Khan plays an alien in the movie. Though his people communicate with each other through thought waves, he is forced to learn to communicate with humans through their way of communication. And he manages to learn Bhojpuri because a Bhojpuri speaking lady “co operates” with him in his bid to learn the language.

As we all know, “V” and “W” are pronounced as “Bh” in Bhojpuri. For instance “Vote” is “Bhot” and “Volt” is “Bholt”. The only time “V” and “W” are pronounced as “wa” is if they form the suffix of nouns. For instance, “V” and “W” in “Atulva”, “Rajeshwa” etc are pronounced correctly. 🙂

A song from the movie that I liked a lot went “love is a bhaste of time”. 🙂 So PK is like me. I find rail travel a bhaste of time and PK finds love a bhaste of time. and both of us bhaste our time a lot in these activities. 🙂

Here is that song from “PK”(2014). This song is sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. Amitabh Varma is the lyricist. Music is composed by Shantanu Moitra. The song is picturised on Aamir Khan and Anushka Sharma.

mann kare ki jor jor chillaayen
aaj samajh mein aa gaya bhaiyya
Love is bhaste of time

phir bhi soch liya hoon man maa

Ah, a lovely write-up. Waiting for more details of the Mumbai Gangout. I haven’t seen this movie yet, but since I’m beginning to feel like a social outcast as a result, I think I might just go ahead and see it. Sounds like an interesting movie. 🙂

Yes, you will love this bhaste of time and money. 🙂 R K Hirani is quite a muppet as we have seen in his earlier movies as also in this one.
