Back @ SRFTI says:

Back @ SRFTI says:
thats is the Rains....
Back @ SRFTI says:
they have just caused mass floodin in Mumbai...and the same is possible in Kolkata too specially in Sept....
Back @ SRFTI says:
but one never reallty can say abt the rain...some days pass as dry and hot as summer and the next day it could rain like hell
tru classified intentions says:
oh yeah, i've heard from the int news
tru classified intentions says:
abt the situation in mumbai
Back @ SRFTI says:
and if it rains heavily in ur time here...then be ready with a good back up plan
tru classified intentions says:
u mean it could happen that the trains wont travel etc
tru classified intentions says:
my plan is to go to bangladesh, that's why i'll b in kolkata
Back @ SRFTI says:
basically all train schedules and flight schedules go for a toss
Back @ SRFTI says:

tru classified intentions says:

Back @ SRFTI says:

Back @ SRFTI says:
this year the rains have been delayed but they are back with a bang
Back @ SRFTI says:

Back @ SRFTI says:

Back @ SRFTI says:
abt accomodation u cud have stayed with us in the SRFTI hostel...
Back @ SRFTI says:
if thats ok with u...
tru classified intentions says:
yeah sure
Back @ SRFTI says:
only prob is its slighty far from the city centre so u have to travel quite a lot evrytime u have to get to the city
tru classified intentions says:
aha...but i think that's managable eh?
Back @ SRFTI says:
ya sure
tru classified intentions says:
u mentioned the distance was like 2 hrs or smth when i talked to u in esto
Back @ SRFTI says:
its abt an hour
Back @ SRFTI says:
but if u take a cab its less
tru classified intentions says:
aa..then no prob
Back @ SRFTI says:
the traffic screw u up all the time
tru classified intentions says:
hehe
Back @ SRFTI says:
Kolkata has a mjor traffic problem...as compared to other indian cities
Back @ SRFTI says:

tru classified intentions says:

Back @ SRFTI says:
there are somethins abt my country and its people that make it livable otherwhile its the largest pile of garbage....hahaha
tru classified intentions says:
hehe...in some sense could b true...but there's a lot of beauty in india
Back @ SRFTI says:
ya for sure
Back @ SRFTI says:
i feel the beauty is more in the people than anythin else
Back @ SRFTI says:
like any other thin in life u have the full range of extremes available here in india...with people its more true....
tru classified intentions says:
for me the chaos also somehow entails beauty
Back @ SRFTI says:
hahahahh ya i kind of feel the same
tru classified intentions says:
it has its internal order...or structure....and u have to kinda put effort into getting it
tru classified intentions says:
and find yourself a place there
Back @ SRFTI says:
hahaahah
Back @ SRFTI says:
u seem to have got india all figured out....hahahahah
tru classified intentions says:
but it's attractive...the chaos
