Mohammed Izhaar (@cyclingacrossindia) 1000 days 42000 kms of cycling.
Days 168 -175 : uncycling days-too boring, too scary.
Early morning, Next day, Ritu dropped me to the Station and a boring two day Train journey begun. There wasn't much to do, even my phone ran out of charge soon and I just tried tho sleep in that noisy thing. The Train was going at a speed that would put a snail to shame. It was 5 hours late and reached Delhi at 12.30AM. That slow long snake of enormous size spit me out but not my cycle. I ran from cabins to cabins to get it, only to be told that it's not there. The clerk advised me to check with Guwhati railway station as if he's not responsible for it. Depressed and angry, I went to complain to the Station master who told the same thing in a polite tone. Frustrated I tried to sleep there itself, on the benches of railway station but the announcements about keeping railway platform made it quite impossible.
Morning, went to meet a Cyclist from Delhi who offered to book a guest house for me for two days. Evening, I met Dhruba & Animesh, back freshly from there incredible trip to leh. They had lot of stories to tell. So we walked around Rajiv chowk trading foolish tales. After bidding them goodbye, I went again to the railway station to check on Rover. No luck that day too.
Woke up early morning and shifted my room near to the bus stand. And then again went to the railway station. At last there he was. Standing in a corner, alone, confused, angry and afraid all at once. I collected the cycle and rode some 15kms back to my room. Evening spent in roaming in chandini chow, savoring sweets.
