We then had a bit to eat ay Woody’s and all felt ok with the world – and at the next stop I realized I’d forgotten my cellphone for the first time in my life! Started back to look for it in all the places we had visted – no luck at Woody’s. Got back to the car – opened the door to start to get in and BANG! A bike’s crash guard rammed into the door and the guy scooted even as I collected my wits – he must have passed within 2 inches of me! Now the door would not shut – Ramesh who had come along to help look for the phone helped me somehow get it closed a bit but it would not lock. Passed the seatbely through it and went looking for the phone anyway – no luck at all.
Good bargains on the clothes but magnitudes more lost on the repairs+phone – Vijay Auto on Bannerghata road gave me an estimate of 7500/- + parts at least.
Ramesh and I pondered over tea how needlessly complicated and involved life has gotten – and perhaps happiness lies elsewhere …
Insurance claim forms were filled smoother than I expected – perhaps I’ve become a little more negative than I need to be about suchlike.
New SIM card for the cellphone took only 10 minutes at the Airtel office.
Will probably get car only on Sunday 😦 (the final estimate was 13k not 10!!)
