Trip to Lahore – Day 2

Trip to Lahore

Trip to Lahore - LUMS Olympiad

Day 2

It is 6:00am and train is moving with proximity of 150km/hour. I am standing at bogie door. All I can see from here is “greeny green greenery” and sun tempting to look out on us. This feeling of zephyr is something that can’t be defined here. In short, I was simply enjoying the nature.

——————————————————————————-

We had a great Nashta party at Kanpur station. Train stopped for 10 minutes so, we got out washed our face, managed to brush our teeth, took a cup of tea, some biscuits and chips, and came back. Unfortunately there was this incident which took our breath. We didn’t see Moiz in our bogie and train was touching slow velocity. Hamza and others, standing at bogie door, were trying to figure out where the hell that guy set out. Everyone was in search of this guy and we checked every single compartment and bogie but we didn’t find him. At last we found him in economy class. This stupid guy said, “Bhai kia huaa! I was charging my cell DUDE”.

——————————————————————————-

By the way Moiz and Hamza also wrote something. I have their material so let me put it over here.

Moiz

The first sight that caught the attention of all of us was a Halwa Puri. Since we all were starving, but then we saw the cost at which we would be filling up and that was a little overwhelming. Nevertheless we went to the platform and got our self some stuff to munch on, while the rest of us began the search of a clean and tidy washroom, a desire which can only be dreamed in Khanewal Station. In the meantime I and Tabish went to the extreme front to check out the cockpit view of the train. One of the co-drivers invited us inside the compartment to take a few something (I don’t know what he has written) but his partner wasn’t that hospitable.  He told us to get down from his throne of power and we had to allege.

——————————————————————————-

I didn’t get the single word of Hamza… may be his writing sucks. Anyways, we had a mind-blowing in fact, mind-blastic 2 day trip.

The next 5 days at LUMS made some of us in inferiority. Of course I don’t have to put their names here but moments that we all had are unforgettable. That is all for now. Thank you, take care and Khuda Hafiz.

Trip to Lahore – Day 1

Trip to Lahore

Trip to Lahore - LUMS Olympiad

Day 1

Every day we pass Malir Cantt road and look at train but right now we are in train and watching the same Malir Cantt road and its heavy traffic and one police officer who is trying to control the traffic. The difference is that when we are in ‘Point’ we are heading towards ‘One of the prestigious university of the world (FAST-NU)’ a sentence which is at peak now a days after organizing ‘unilympics’, which is one of the best event organized by Sportix.

We have been selected as delegates (Participants) for LUMS (Lahore University of Management Science) Olympiad Competition and right now we are in Karachi Express Train. Train speed is approximately 70km/hour, which I guess is very low and is in same pace for about 25 minutes.

——————————————————————————-

Its 6:40pm and Tabish and AI (Ali Iftikhar) are in my compartment and doing recitation. We are scared, you know… little… I guess. Anyways, Akif is still thinking. I don’t know what he wants but he is still trying to find new problems. We call him ‘The problem manufacturer’. Our compartment ‘F’ includes me, Ali Iftikhar, Ali Maisam, Akif, Tabish and Irtaza where Hamza, Hammad, Ali Sheikh and Samad are in compartment ‘G’.

——————————————————————————-

Irtaza has just posted a new facebook status and it reads ‘Lahore trip begins… chuk chuk chuk chuk’

——————————————————————————-

Its 6:55pm and some anonymous uncle, I guess he is Memon, is forcing us to offer Namaz. We are going to offer ‘Bajamaat Namaz’ in train. We have very limited space outside our compartment where we have to offer namaz. I guess width is not more than 2ft.

——————————————————————————-

We have just crossed Malir Bridge and right now we can see our University tower from this small window. One thing that I want to add here is that we all are missing Arqam, who was supposed to come with us but because of unfortunate consequences he didn’t manage to make up this trip.

——————————————————————————-

Do you know we have mosquitoes here? I mean how this is even possible. The clock reads 8:10pm and Ali Sheikh and Samad are in our compartment and Fika (Akif) is making ‘Sheesha’. This is my first trip to Lahore and I am excited actually, I am excited because I am leaving bhains colony for one week. Compartment is centralized AC and environment is peaceful, entertaining, No HQ or Big Picture. And most importantly we are independent. INDEPENDENT for one week… this is another factor of this excitement that we are feeling right now. By the way the second party (Hamza and all other seniors) are in compartment where that Memon Uncle is lecturing.

——————————————————————————-

Right now we are at Kotri Station and trying to figure out how much time we have got because I have watched many Indians movies in which heroine loses her train and then hero comes and then blah blah. All we can see here are many Pathans & weird people. Ali Iftikhar is pissed off because I am wearing his sandals. All I can hear is the whistle of Karachi Express train so let me first reach to my compartment.

——————————————————————————-

Its 9:05pm and we are at Hyderabad junction. Akif and AI are outside trying to figure out what food they should buy. As more and more people are picking this train to reach their destiny we have to be extra careful and so we are securing our luggage, which includes from toothbrush to mp3 player. Oh! I got sms… see you later.

——————————————————————————-

Lolz Hamza bought two dozens of banana, some LAYS and some biscuits. We are going to play board game that Tabish bought. So see you later. Bye
