The long awaited train journey!

Sitting at my window seat, I booted the laptop, set my wallpaper to black, launched vi on a transparent virtual console; wondering what this is all about?
This is about my train journey (after 7 long years) and this time it is from secunderabad – chennai, deviating from my default route secunderabad – howrah.

Probably the next thing on your mind is, why is this guy going to chennai at all?
Well, for various reasons including carte blanche at mit, enjoying my holiday, meeting some geeks who regularly hang out at #linux-india at freenode, surprise visit to a friend, who has been a great support during mukt.in ’07, to devilisly eat dozens of idlis’ or dosas’ (I eat anything that moves).

It was fun in the train, points here:
1. People do not switch off the lights for the upper berth passengers, even on request.
2. The food still sucks.
3. Funniest of all, girls in the train use cleansers, soaps and what not to keep their face glowing; they did it thrice within 12 hours. If you’d want to argue with me saying that they are being hygienic, I’d say hygienic savvy people should brush their teeth when they wake up before they gulp packets and packets of bourbon biscuits.

Packing for any journey has been my weakness, I forget almost half of my important things and old habits die hard. I did forget them this time too; some magic that they were already packed up for me – thanks to my mom.

The train is expected to reach chennai central within 30 minutes. So, I should be packing up; shutting down. Will write later 😉
I missed to post this yesterday! 😛
