O Calcutta!!



Sultry weather , seductive women, meeting old friends. Even attending a marriage .Makings of an interesting weekend.

First things first - the flight - Air deccan. They don't call themselves low cost carriers for nothing. A 15 minute line to enter the airport - only for air deccan passengers. Then chaos at the check-in counter. Finally - the flight got delayed - and they didn't announce till the scheduled time of departure had come & gone. Their planes are good - pity- that's all there is to it. The air hostesses were plainly not recruited for their communication skills. Even the simple announcements were highly cryptic.... so I slept.

Reached the wedding venue JIT (Just in time) to see the formalities through to completion. John was already there - standing at the gate. We had a great time at the wedding and I ate my fill of FISH.. and tried unsuccessfully to catch the eye of the women there. Ironically, the appealing women had a red streak in their head - symbolizing their marital status - BOOKINGS CLOSED
Here are some pics from our nocturnal trip to "Someplace Else" at the Park Hotel. Parikrama playing and we got a good education in Hard rock.
There's always something special about a Live performance. We were there till late past midnight - making the most of our Stag Status.
I had an early morning return flight - whic necessitated my arrival at the airport by 10AM. Realization dawned as the flight departed at 1PM. I hate air deccan!!! They're CHEAP in the literal sense of the word.

Irony, you did not have any thing else, but to write cheaply about Air Deccan.
