We came back from kolkata on 25th jan itself and were supposed to be travelling to goa with Mr.Rajan & family,but due to my Mrs falling ill suddenly we couldnt make the trip.But what worried me the most is we were supposed to leave for Bihar,chhapda on 29th jan,late evening and if she doesnt get better soon we had to cancel that plan as well,I was not worried to cancel the plan but bhaiya&bhavi(it is their family wedding) who were going to Bihar with us will have to cancel their plan as well for us.My wife was very sure that she will be fine before our scheduled date of journey and by grace of god she did get better. So as per plan our journey to bihar was on.Got the wheel alignment,balancing and rotation done on the 29th morning(I know should have done it earlier),borrowed stepney from Mr.Rajan,fed fuel to the car to the brim and was all ready to go,umm wait I forgot to pack my bags,which me and wife completed by evening.Wanted to take rest in the afternoon which I couldnt,thought nicotine will keep me up awake for the night atleast and wifey can take over the wheels for a short while during the day. DAY 1,29th jan,9:30pm(Bangalore-HYD-NAGPUR,bypassed-RAMTEK);1162 odd kms Everything till now went as per plan,thank god.Picked up the other passengers,and left for HYD our first destination(heard about some riots and stuffs going on there so wanted to cross it before midnight.)We crossed HYD by 4:20am by taking the outer ring road,man I was dead sleepy driving on this suppper straight road,was praying for it to end,its really too boring Just after we crossed Hyd,stopped for breakfast after hitting the highway again. Next destination was nagpur before lunch,which was delayed due various unknown reasons,and maybe my wife driving at speeds south of 80kmph and me sleeping like a log. Had lunch some 100 kms before nagpur,and again wasted 1&1/2 hours.Crossed nagpur by 3:30pm,and took the nagpur bypass by asking some truck drivers. I thought of driving to jabalpur and taking a halt there,but decided against it and stayed at ramtek some 80 odd kms from nagpur. Now Ramtek is not a place to be with family,but was to tired to drive to jabalpur.Got into a roadside hotel,looked decent from outside,nothing much to speak of rooms,except had a LCD of 32" which looked really very much out of place considering the condition of the room. We had a quick dinner by 7pm,and went to sleep.But after a few hours into the night our sleep was disturbed with constant banging of our next room door,and all such creepy noises:evil:.I was unable to sleep in this kind of environment anymore,so decided to move out as quickly as possible.
