Just few hours ago I was waiting at Shakti Nagar chowk for red-light to turn green and just then I saw a Royal Enfield next to me. ThisEnfield was little different from what we usually see onDelhi roads. The registration number was ‘ULC’ and loaded with a traveler’s bag-pack and biker’s tool kit.
I had a short conversation with the guy driving this bike:
He: “Is thisGT Road?”
I: “Yes. Where are you going towards?”
I: “Amritsaron a bike?”
He: “Yes, I am traveling Indiaon my Royal Enfield.”
I: “That is pretty awesome. Where are you from?”
He: “Australia. I started this journey in Kerela and I am now heading towardsAmritsar, my last stop.”
I: “Great, have an adventurous ride ahead. You have to go all the way straight to reachChandigarhand then you will find your way toAmritsar.”

Before I could ask him for a photograph, the red-light turned green and he was on his way; already. I now feel so fascinated about the whole idea of traveling on a bike; I envy him. I don’t ride bike and in fact I don’t even know how to ride a bike but I think it’s THE time I should learn that new skill and buy myself a bike. Sitting here on my desk, I think I should at least take a road-trip till Chandigarhsomeday. The route is also easy. All I have to do is go straight as soon as I leave my house door. (YES, you read it correct. The route to Chandigarhis way too easy. I live on Grand Trunk road which heads straight towardsChandigarh. )
So anybody out-there, want to come along?
