It is not just the Fun...

Have been on road since, aah…. I don’t remember, how many days. Rode past through thousands of villages, many a towns, and don’t know how many states. When I found myself at the end of my earlier life, I kicked the lever and came onto the tar. Like they do ideally or in the movies, I didn’t throw my cards, wallet or mobile. Money was at least that I needed to reach the point where I may have to finally decide, whether to go back to civilization or just move ahead wandering! I put those earthly things somewhere in my satchel, sort of dumped, and switched off.
Every end finally disappears into a new start. That I have learnt a zillionth times in my life.

After Neil Armstrong’s first Step on moon, M-ron became the first 2-wheeler capable to ride in no-gravity to sub-gravity atmosphere. To earn an M-ron, I spent my whole life, well not whole life, just the time between my first dreams of moon the day I could save dimes to be able to buy it! And, now tomorrow…
