train alone

this is a first time.

am on way to jaipur for a conference (the smart oens have guessed that i am writing this on the train).
there has been a major derailment en-route.
so the train is taking a diverted route. likely delay of 7-10 hours anticipated.

the cool thing - i am entirely alone in an entire compartment/bogie. other than the railway staff, that is.
simply awesome.

and of course, roaming internet card zindabad.

the card has evinced more interest than the alone experience.
nevertheless it is paid for by the office and do not plan to make a habit of it yet.
am on the way back now and still am on the card.
