On the road...

It's been 7 days since I've left Mumbai for field work... and already it feels like it's been ages. With a twist of events, I landed up with a project working on my firm's rural distribution strategy and so I've travelled villages around Maharashtra for quite some time now... here are 5 things I never thought I would do in my life:

  1. Ridden 20 kms in an Mumbai size auto rickshaw with 7 other people
  2. Rode as a pillion rider on a bike without a helmet for 2 hours in the dark on a highway with no civilization for miles and miles
  3. Saw a village "bazaar"
  4. Spent time in a place without electricity for almost 10 hours
  5. Spent shitloads of money (which should be reimbursed soon :P) on a swanky hotel room, only to realise it would only be used for 8 hours of sleep and a bath later if I'm lucky!!!
I sincerely apologize to all the people I haven't been able to be in touch with ... my dear old reliance phone is outta battery, cos I was stupid enough to not carry a charger along anticipating a short trip :P ... So mail me your phone nos. if u wanna know more about my adventures - another wonder of modern technology, anywhere I go - there's some telephone network coverage ... which brings along email, google maps and all my work along :|

Here are some pics from my "adventures":
