Off the beaten track

Yesterday I flew down from Ahmedabad to Chennai on a week's leave so as to spend Makara Shankraanthi back home in Chennai.

Though my flight was at 1155 AM, I was at Sardar Vallabhai Patel International airport before 9 itself. Thanks to my travel agent and Manoj Bhai, the call taxi guy, I could leave my residence at Vadodara well in time on a pleaseant sunny morning.  The A C system at the airport was very much within tolerance limits unlike in many airports and offices.

I wish Chennai airport too maintains a comfortable level of AC.
