Revised Itinerary

In my previous post, “Wedding Circuit“, I mentioned that Mark and I would be traveling from Calcutta to Bangalore the evening of December 29th. Well, with us, all plans are made to be broken.

The day before we departed for Pune, Puru Kothari (who had just returned from vacation) mentioned that he was going to Alang, the famous ship-breaking port on the western coast of Gujarat. When our eyes lit up in recognition (we had just seen a documentary on Alang focused on the environmental pollution and inhumane working conditions there just before we arrived in India), he invited us to join him. After some frantic “figuring”, we decided to take the Calcutta-Ahmedabad train (instead of going to Bangalore) to meet up with the team driving up from Pondicherry starting December 30 in Surat.

Mark spent four hours this morning (visiting 7 different offices) applying for emergency quota (we are still waitlisted for this train too) so that we don’t have to stow away again.
