AN UNPLANNED TRIP TO AGRA
I (RAUSHAN KUMAR) am back with my new blog “AN UNPLANNED TRIP TO AGRA”.
I clearly remember the day thrusday (22nd dec 2k16) and time was around “7 pm”,my phone rang and it was my one of the best childhood friend “akhilesh”.Me and akhilesh had studied together from 3rd to 8th class at government school in village.
I have decided to go to the delhi zoo together after the semester exams ends, because after spending 3 years at patna we haven’t spent a better time together.when he called me , i was talking with my my roommates and a friend to plan a trip to agra. But as per i think that plan my not going to work.So i have changed my plan suddenly from delhi zoo to Agra.
On phone i told him to come to my flat at gr.noia and stay the night there,and in morning we will move to agra by bus sharp 8:00 am.BUT he toid me that he will come sharp 8:00am early morning at parichawk.I haven’t sleeped whole night thinking about trip and specially to meet akhilesh.From here the actual trip starts:—-
On 23rd dec 8:00am as told we both reached at parichawk and get a bus to agra.After a small journey of 3hr at 11:00 am we reached agra.Frist we decided to visit the “TAJ MAHAL”.Here we realised the biggest mistake :–“Taj Mahal is closed on friday”.The moment when we saw that taj is closed,we became “Glum”.
Then we decided to visit the Agra fort which was near the taj mahal.we reached Agra fort at 12:00 pm by auto. One thing about auto drivers and local people that” the never loose the chance to cheat you”.Thats apart we enjoyed a lot at the agra fort.then we decided to visit “imadul –al-dohha”.
We reached visit “imadul –al-dohha” at 2:30 pm. This is also known as “akbar ka makbara”.we visted this place and taken some pictures of beautiful things.then after we decided to visit “MEHTAB BAGH”.
Reached mehtab bagh 3:00 pm .the speciality of this Greden is that from this Gardenis that we can visit the backside of the taj mahal along with Yamuna river.we enjoyed the view of taj from that bagh.after that I told him to get return to gr.noida because on 24th dec their was my practical exam. He became agree but i saw his face ,he was not happy nethier me was happy because “Agra means Taj” .but due to my practical exam i was cancelling my plan.
Then i thought a way to manage that we will visit taj early morning at 7 and get returned at 10:30 am at collage by bus.I told my best friend “RAJAT” to bring my files to collage for practical.then we started moving by foot from mehtab bagh to agra fort railway station which was around 3.5 km by gps.
As this trip was unplanned we didn’t take charger with mobile.so on moving further our mobile shutdown on “bijli house golchhakar”.at time around 6:00pm we reached agra fort railway station.mobile was off so first have to charge it so we gone to the shop and bought a jacket of a baby for 150rs. And charged the mobile for 1hr.After that the first problem came to stay at room.As i told u the nature of peoples at agra,they just told that much amount that we can’t afford at that time because their was no cash nearby atms.so we changed the plan and decided to stay at station.
We first eat the famous sweet of agra so called “PETHA”.and also taken some timepass “Mungfali” to spend the night at station.First we thought that the night will be just boring but our assumption were wrong.there was a big firewood at the gate of stationwhere we spent 5hr just enjoying the peoples talk.As britishers have told about india that”Indian people can give the suggestion for any task occurring in the world at anytime”. We just enjoyed the night till 11:00 pm.
After that we slept for 2-3 hr in waiting room.the intresting thing about the station is that it was built in “1905”.well designed and structured properly.then we wake up at 4:00 am and went to the firewood and get heat till 5 am.after that we get freshed and started walking to taj, as Morning walk.
We reached taj at 6:00am and booked ticket and came in line .at 7 am the gate was opened and we entered taj.IT was a nebulous sight but was very realistic and awesome..!!!!!!!!. Now we were at the center tomb of taj mahal. We took some selfiee with taj and also the beuty around taj.Seeing taj in fogg was also a different moments it looks much beautiful .after visiting taj we came out to take bus form idgan bus stand.
But form their no buses were to parichawk,then after a long drama and angry moments we finally took bus from “isbt” to parichawk.
1.To enjoy the journey first plan everything properly.
2.Doesn’t depend on locals suggestions,take help of gps only.
3.enquiry about every place where to visit properly.
4.Safety is the first and last policy.!!!!
