@16-04-18/ The Munnar diaries

At six in the morning, I was on a bus ready to start from Fortkochi to Ernakulam. I was the first person to be on the bus and the rank lasted long. After few minutes, someone came to the driver and yelled something in Malayali (in a friendly tone).

The driver went to the solo passenger and started with something, all I could understand was the “….Dalit bund…” in the middle of his sentence.

Well, let’s take a ferry

After a walk of two kilometers, I found that the ticket counter will open at 6:50. I  waited on the morning which was calm and the heart that was anxious. With ticket fare about four Indian rupees, I made it to the Ernakulam port.  I reached the RTC bus on the auto and there stood a bus which was about to travel to Munnar.

I found only one empty seat. Really, what are the odds…? What if there wasn’t any Dalit bund..?

Along the way to Munnar,
