Day 1
New Delhi, India to Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh, India
Lying on bed, awake for 2 hour in the morning, thinking weather should go or not, at Last I decide to attend friend’s marriage at Bareilly, Uttar Pradesh. I made a promise to her and I always want to keep them and Started at 11.00 am on 9th December 2010.
Highway NH 24 road was good but Bike engine was fully open (Crank-shaft replacement) 3 days before and advised to drive 50-60 KPH maximum. So I drive slowly.
Once you are away 200 Km from Delhi, the world around you would be much better in terms of Behavior of people. I don’t know its Delhi affect or metro effect that makes people of Delhi insensitive. I stop by one Dhaba (food joint on road side which has almost all facility for truck driver and a poor tourist like me, got fresh in a so called washroom (one need to be daring to use that one and I am sure most of the readers will discard it , But I have to use it) and took my lunch. I also gave him the tomato and other vegetables which I carried from my home because some how I sense that it would be long before I return home.
I have a wish to go to the farthest end in south of India i.e. Kanyakumari, TamilNadu but haven't plan for it. By the way if I plan anything, it hardly gets executed so I prefer to do extempore. The only thing I keep ready is my Traveling bag, Ready to go in 10 minutes.
ON that Road, I do remember one place (a small town) near Moradabad, where I found around 10 shops of Gulab-Jamun ( an Indian sweet dish) and everybody claming that their shop is the original one by putting different convincing words on their shop’s signboard. It was funny to see how people start exploiting one shop’s credibility, build over the years in a business.
At 6 PM I read the Sign Board " Jari nagri barelli me aap ka swagat hai”, I didn’t know Barelli is also known as "Jari nagari". I know Barelli because of its famous Kite business and I fly kites a lot in my childhood and we always wish to have enough money to buy costlier Barelli kites and Manjha (The thread) with our limited budget and there is another famous old Hindi song " Jhoomka gira re, barelli ke bazar me"

From Delhi to Bareli
Distance (Km) 250
Route NH 24 via Moradabad
