Perhaps, the Oxford dictionary got the meaning of Yatra wrong. Eventually, you will know why.
Exactly a month before, I got an opportunity to travel in one of the most bizarre ways! It has been a fortnight that I am back to my “normal” life. At times, when I am sleeping on my bed and have all the comforts around me, getting up in the morning hasn’t been the same.
The first thing that comes to my mind when I am up- Why is my bed not moving?! Why is it so peaceful around me. Why do I not hear people shouting Chai Chai? (Tea, tea).
Why do I NOT hear the sound of a moving train! I sound like a retard eh?
If this was not enough, I do not have a sleeping bag with me where I am nicely tucked in, nor can I wake up my cohort with singing random songs. (I used to also open the sleeping bags of my cohort, put my cold hands on their face- that was the only way some of them would wake up! Oh and I was a facilitator, responsible for ensuring 5 people in my cohort were up and ready on time. Apart from easing the process of living in a train for 15 days!)
