To do or not to do
This week I’ve been busy with getting my trip organised . Sadly the heavy rains put paid to my travel plans and after a four hour wait at the airport I returned home.
Now I don’t know if that was a good thing or a bad thing.
Logic told me that the flight that was diverted would eventually land in Mumbai and would not go back empty. So if I wait, I’d board the plane.
But the airline staff categorically said that the flight was cancelled and I’d have to re-book.
Now Chhatrapati Shivaji Airport with all its grandeur is not equipped to handle anything out of the ordinary. Since it is a silent airport there are no announcements made the way they are at a Railway Station. And since all unattended baggage is picked up and destroyed, I couldn’t lug my bags to the airline office and re-book.
( Incidentally, Jetairways doesn’t have a city office anymore ! )
And worse still with connectivity being dicey, I couldn’t make a booking on the net either . I was also finding it difficult to make any local calls.
With the Airport shut down, people milling around , food getting scarce and facilities slowly getting over used, I took a quick decision of coming home
But now I wonder if I did the right thing.
What would you have done ? Do let me know .
Life teaches us lessons and everything in our lives happens for a reason. September is not really a monsoon month .
Why did it rain so crazily only the night I was scheduled to leave?
Why did I not leave the night I was meant to leave ?
What is the lesson in this ?
As always, the answer will come .
