My journey to Rajgir Sadhana Bhushan
I was going to college to my tune that suddenly a Maruti van came and stopped and two women sitting in it were asking me to go inside and swear I lost my life. Actually she was my college professor and was scolding me why you did this. Although we had done such a thing, I and I were my friend Neha. There was a program to go on a group picnic in our college. We were very excited, probably the most. We were so happy that we forgot to ask the family in the night and a friend’s call came from the college that the bus has arrived, where are you people? Anyway, it was going to be our most memorable trip. The matter is about 2003-4, when I had my own phone, we informed the family members before leaving. Because I was not a father, I was brought up in my maternal grandmother and my grandmother was still there at that time. Then I continued crying and washing until she agreed. But our bus did not stop for us and left.
We thought that now everyone has agreed, so let’s go on a journey to Rajgir. We thought that the bus had left. We should walk by train, at that age, put all the wisdom. After reaching the station, we came to know that a train is going to come from Delhi after one hour which will go to Rajgir via Patna. Taking the ticket, we started waiting for the train, we were leaving for the first time. People were looking at us with strange eyes, looking at two girls without any resemblance, there was a lot of fear from inside, but there is such a excitement to go.
The train was probably our first train journey. People were looking at us with strange eyes. On the other hand, our bus had reached Rajgir and this train was stopping at every station, we were stuck. The way to come back and go is harder than that. Calls were received from our friends that they took a bath in the seven pools and we took a rickshaw from the hanging station to at least reach the bus, but what was the fate. By the time we reached the bus, the bus had opened and what should the rickshaw owner tell us. It seemed that the soul was leaving the body and we remained silent. Then there was no train, we took a bus to Nalanda University because the next stop was there. Then we took the bus. People were getting smacked on the bus. Hunger was worsening the condition. If the family came, it was difficult to give them what to eat. People were standing above the window, they were afraid or not. It seemed too much. By then our bus had roamed the library of Nalanda University. When we arrived, it was found out that Tanga walks to go to that place. When we rode the Tanga, it was nice to go and then we took a photo. Now when we arrived, she was looking at other buildings till then she met us and she could not express herself happily. Because nothing happened to the picnic we had left for home, on the contrary, God taught the lesson on the same day.
After that we left for Pavapuri, then friends had to eat food from their tiffins and kept it for us. Then I remembered my father and mother very much, would they have let me go happily and we would not have been so upset. Then Pavapuri enjoyed a walk with friends and slept after returning home late at night. In the morning It was on her way to college that Madam caught her on the way.
Now tell me what to do with you. We again apologized with folded hands, but I was counting on good students, then they left saying that if they did this next time, they will tell the family. Once the intention was to go with the college, then who has gone crying every day, but tell your family and try to do any work, maybe they believe that their strictness is also for us.
