Tour diary!

I returned last week from a grand 2 week long holiday (holiday from the cooking and housecleaning work!) to Ujjain, Mathura, Jaipur, Kashmir and Amarnath. I am fully rejuvenated now and plan to write about my journey shortly.

All the 7 of us – my sister-in-law and her sister-in-law’s family and myself (my husband hates travelling and son is too busy!) went by train. Had a whale of a time in the train also. All of us played cards with some fellow travellers. One boy who played with us was bragging about himself all the time! He said he was an arms dealer from Bikaner. He goes for hunting often and even the actor Sanjay Dutt went hunting with him! His mother acted in films in small roles. His marriage is fixed for September and he has ordered for a kundan jewellery set worth more than a lakh of rupees (like the set Aishwarya Rai wore in Devdas). He had taken our address and we will wait for his invitation! Met another girl who was a captain in the army. She was an engineer. Her parents were looking for a groom for her and she had come to Chennai for that. She is not very happy with her job, she said. She is planning to quit. The job is not suitable for girls, she said. While coming back from Delhi, we met an air force man and he was very happy with his job. He too was an engineer and married and was going home to Thindukkal to bring back his wife and son to Delhi.

It is interesting to meet new people and know about them. Now wait for the details of my journey. Hope it is interesting!
