So, what have I done just before the day I am travelling to Ahmedabad? Packing, for sure. There is a checklist I made for myself with a lot of items. Intuition says ‘go light on luggage’, but caution from within screams ‘four-months, are you ready?’ I had to be double sure about the clothes I was carrying, whether I really liked them. I chose them carefully, I hope. I had to fit them into three bags just to see which bag seems to take them in well. Finally decided that I would carry a trolley bag that now has six-pairs of clothes, a sweater, two towels, undergarments, couple of shorts and t-shirts, a bed sheet and a blanket, hair oil, tooth paste and brush, and a rain coat and an umbrella (we were told in the general instructions from IIM that it will be monsoon during July to September). And in my back pack, which I got from my brother-in-law (very nice one), I could fit in my shoes, slippers, caps, laptop, mp3 player, mobile charger, IIM letters, leather belts, and kerchiefs. It still has some space and I like it that way. Finally, I am writing this post, and am beginning to believe that my packing is all done.
I also got things ready to be early to get ready in the morning, to go by the IndiGo flight at 6:20 AM.
Just before I sat to write this post, I had a great evening with my lovely wife, cute sister, handsome brother-in-law, and a sweet little brother. We rode to Inorbit malls and had an eat out kind of evening. I say ‘kind of’ because it was not really planned. We were joined by my two friends-for-life, Jaideep and Phani. And from 5:30 PM to 11:30 PM now, we were together. Jai and I liked a book at Crossword today, ‘Asura’. I might actually go by his suggestion and buy it on flipkart. Oh, by the way, today I went out cashless, and that meant a INR 2500 bill charged to my brother-in-law’s pocket for lots of things at the malls, and another INR 200 to Jaideep who bought me headphones which I wanted. Should I consider repaying them? I don’t think so. I believe I will have my chances to spend for them when I am back from IIM.
That is all for now. Just have another four hours to start to the Airport. Should get some sleep.
