a couple of days ago the Karnataka Government was formed and we got to see a couple of victory processions on or way home on the NH via Moodbidri, from both the main national parties. Sadly they both blocked our way back and our progress was slow indeed. this was worsened when the bus broke down a couple of kilometers outside Moodbidri. and it was looking like it would rain anytime soon. after having lost my brand new umbrella a couple of days back, it didnt make me feel so haappy.
Eventually the party procession caught up with us. One of the Guys suggested that we join in the procession and get a lift in the bargain and he even coined a slogan : “kai ki jai” 😀 well we waited on the side of the road and got some laddoos in the bargain. weirdest thing we heard is the police escort asking us to move the stalled bus to the nonexistent side 😛 what do they think we are some kind of supermen to lift the bus or something?
The mechanic was finally called and after sometime we were on our way. we passed beside the procession and continued our madness. one of the guys ran and got a party shawl. actually everyone was looking out for some more laddoos as it was late and we were pretty hungry.
all in all it was a nice experience.
