BhOpaL 2 iNdOrE !!!!

Indore... supposed to be the business capital of Madhya Pradesh... this is where I am today...

curtains in the room in Bhopal...

left office around 1700 hours yesterday... and collected my bag and rushed to the bus stand... so this helps me see the other side of Bhopal.. the crowded, with bad roads, and irritating traffic... and i realise that no city is india is different from any other city...

the nicely decorated meter in an auto in bhopal

i was feeling as if i was moving around in the Transport nagar near the sadar bazaar in delhi.. what traffic man !!! uff... the auto walas drive the same way as in delhi.... zig zag zoom...

so i reach the bus stand in 30 minutes... and i love it.. this was the core city.. lots of loud people trying to pull passengers to their buses... lots of mess !!! :)

Bhopal Bus stand...ekdum mast !!!

just what I was missing for a few days !!! i chose to just walk around the place for a while before I take a bus... so i just walk around.. feeling at home.. and at the other exit of the bus stand i see an AC coach.. looking just like a volvo...

love this feeling.. i know i can reach indore comfortably now... so i take the bus... nice big bus.. bigg seats... and comfortable too.. and to top it all.. Video Coach.. and AV... looks like i would be just fine...

the bus did not take long to move.. just about 10 minutes and it was on its way to Indore.. Around 1800 is when the bus started...

just outside the bus-stand.. about to take the highway to Indore...

it just had one break in between around 1930 hrs... and reached Indore at 2145 hrs... this is when the conductor also had promised.. the bus on time.. and the movies played on the way... SuryaVansham.. and No Entry.. not bad eh !!! but too loud !!! however i was tired and i could sleep as well for a while.. missed a few phone calls too on the way !!!

so in Indore... and the first impression... nothing great.. just like any other city i have been to.. but there was on thing that i noticed.. the Autos in bhopal were hell lot better... and this time i was looking at old autos.. real old ones... the ones with the engines in the front !!! i get down of the bus.. and pay 20 bucks to reach the hotel... Hotel RajShahi... nice very nice... one of the best that i have stayed in so far...

i sleep after a light dinner.. and when i woke up in the morning i had fever... took some breakfast and then a crocin.. feeling better while i am writing this... i also have something on my face.. kuch gadbad lag rahi hai.. i think i will see a doc in the evening..

i was checking out in the morning... when Abhishek who arranged for my stay suggested that i stay put in the hotel and leave for ujjain in the morning only.. which made sense looking at my halat in the morning.. so i did not check out... my bags are there itself.. and i will leave for Ujjain tmrw morning.. early morning around 0500 hrs...

i will get back to work now.. getting the implementation done here in Indore today.. might meet Pawan as well in the evening... he does not meet me when he is in Delhi.. i might meet him when i am in Indore...
