The Trailer is here
Arey hoo...switch off the lights...movie is going to start again!!!!
People started to getting in to their seats after a round of fag, and Coffee/Tea!!!
"Common guys lets start the trek"..a board welcomed the trekkers. A perfect setting for the trekking with overcast clouds protecting us from the sun!!.The ghat's means..one side a big mountain..other side a deep valley..and winding roads as well..that was the scene always it came in-front of my eyes. But this ghat section provided something different view altogether...
|A Great example of Team work!|
First train zoomed past us..every one exited to see the "anakonda" like structure keep coming in endlessly. Naveen and Anil almost sitting near to the fast wheels enjoying the dhadak dhadak sound (not dhak dhak madhuri dance!!).
|Anil & Naveen wants to hear from close ears!!!!!|
Hurray..the first tunnel arrived, every one was on their toes to get a glimpse of it, and also how long we had to trek in the pitch darkness. Even though all of us had a torch in the hand, we were walking down with out switching on. The pitch darkness, and the light at the end of the tunnel was pumping the adrenalin to a all time high, just getting stored to witness the hair raising moment of the trek.
The kid in the team..suddenly became grownup boy, and the grown up man suddenly become kids. The excitement of entering the tunnel, and exiting slowly transforming us.
A fellow railway employee told " arey saab paani hei..aap tunnel paar kar leejiye..paani milega"..by hearing this every one pressed the gas pedal to see a small but beautiful water fall (even in summer, the water was enough to beat the kid in us). I started to drench myself completely under the water. Kishore, Ashish, Prashanth, Soma, Sandeep, Naveen barged in as well. Latesh, Anil decided to watch the fun from the balcony.
With wet clothes..we started again..
"arey there is one more tunnel"
Kishore, Aashish, Anil just passed out of the tunnel.
Me, Prashanth, Soma were inside the tunnel, and Sandeep, Naveen, Latesh were at the entrance.
Suddenly Kishore, and Anil screamed..."Train is coming"...it was just the same screamer as the "Daaaku" from the blockbuster "Sholay"...
Prashanth ran towards the exit, suddenly realizing Camera in his hands, ran backwards to take the snap shot.
I started picking the snaps, suddenly i realised am in the dangerous curve. All the 3 crores plus god, goddesses, and their great grand children came in front of our eyes, camera effortlessly capturing the amazing moments.
Just few meters behind Soma was also doing more or less same. Sandeep, Latesh, and Anil got a que from the train sound, just hopped out of the tunnel.
So Three were outside of the exit, three stuck inside, and three at the entrance. Situation was more pathetic for the three stuck inside the tunnel.
Marthon track-walk of engines and bogies started, this is the most scariest moment of my life, continuously chanting mantra's to fill myself with more energy. Prashanth clicking the photo one after the other. Soma watching the bogies getting past him one after the other. The engine sound, the honking, the temperature all contributed nicely as if we are watching the horror movie from the front row.
When train finished its job of scaring the three of us, we came out with the spiked hair. My one side got completed dried due to the high temperature of the engine...and kishore aptly put it "Sriku..your hair looked like spiked and as if you watched some horror movie!!!! (colour of the movie prashanth will tell)
I saluted all the gods in our hindu calendar for saving me, and moved on!!!
|The turnaround station for the thriller trek!!!|
Then came the nicest turn around for the trek. We reached the station "CARANZOL". The station guard welcomed and said "Saab..you take the goods train from here to Dudsaagar, don't waste time trekking on the track. You reach Dudsaagar falls, go down, pitch the tent, and happily spend the hours..."...his suggestion proved to be a master stroke.
|The uneducated people sitting and posing!!!!|
|The great man's wise suggestion in the forest...Thanks a lot to him|
|The white uniform guy who identified us as uneducated's inspite of many certificates back home.|
Being "educated" people we are, the moment goods train came in..in an excitement, we started jumping in..suddenly the train guard "oye what are you doing...you look educated..without asking anyone getting in to it..you do the same thing when you are entering your manager's cabin". He hardly knows too many managers work from home all the time (hahahahaha).
All nine of us apologized, "sorry sir...galti se mistake hogayee"..
"Ok ok chad jao... "
we started waving our hands to the god man,whose suggestion was a wonderful tonic, it provided an opportunity to travel in a goods train as well.
The railway guard continuously scolding all the way..we acted as if god never gave us two ears :-)
Here I found the connection to the Sholay movie. The classic Train robbery scene by Gabbar's henchmens. All of us were Jai and Veeru's in our own way.....
|My fav scene in the movie "Sholay"|
The supporting staff screamed "Dudsaagar"..."Get down"
The nine stalwarts back to the track again....after about 10 minutes..saw a big sign board..."Dudsaagar"
|Hurray the Dudsaagar falls came in...and the train as well!!!|
Achanak..the lights were on ...there is a song playing in the background in the theatre...
Uppigintha ruchi bere illa.(there is no better taste than salt).........kaali hottege MTR saaku alva (for empty stomach MTR enough right)
eat..drink...will be back soon!!!
