T- Woes

Am sure it would have happened with many of us before,

Just a day back, happened with a close acquaintance,

Flight day-after and you get a message from the likes of GoAir it has been cancelled,

Assuring that your money would be reimbursed,

What a relief? huh!

But what about the plans you had made contingent on this very flight?

Hotel bookings etc.

Next best thing,

You go online again to book another flight,

Being very careful its not the same airline,

To find that it’s double the cost of the initial booking,


You are left with little options but to book this one,


You are now all set to move ahead in life.

Am sure the airlines had their reasons for cancelling,


It might feel very unfair,

To the extent that you feel exploited and helpless in many ways as a traveler,

You blame the airlines for being unethical and irresponsible,


All this blame game brings no relief to the grieved.

I sometimes wonder, what’s the way out!

Never thought that I will enjoy hopping hotels the same way to hopping bars which I used to do, once upon a time in Paris, though the latter has a different flavour altogether.

After a while, all the old memories come running back in your mind and you tend to feel like living the best days of your life again.

Going into the depth and breadth of things, what is it that makes me feel the obvious? Is it the want and desire of the same, or is it that I am taking pride in doing something totally different from the daily chores?

Is it that every day I get to live in a different room with different furniture and ambiance or is it the food with different flavours that I like munching upon, being the selective foodie that I am?


Is it the chance to explore, experience and walk around in different parts of the city or is it the free spirit devoid of any responsibilities and conditionality that’s making me love the time?

But if I were to do this all my life, would I like it? People would start calling me by different names (hippie etc.), but do I care? Do I even care about how and who things about what and whom?

Well, am I saying that I need to become more befikr and if yes, does it make our lives more beautiful?

After all, it’s about living life to the fullest and in the present. Isn’t it?
