Day 31
In a mood of Masti , I stopped by many times, weigh my bike and myself on a truck weighing machine, I weigh to total 245 kg with my bag and luggage and my bike weigh 180 kg. Rate was 20 rs for trucks weighing so the boy doesn’t want any money from me but I insisted him to take 10 rs.

Before Neemach I made a side trip by leaving NH 3 and to get NH 17. I guess all trucks do that to get a short cut because many trucks on this interior road. The road was really bad and the interior villagers were really living in abject poverty. When road was passing through hill, on a top of hill, two truck collided and remaining was stand still as no room left to pass. 4-5 trucks was there and their drivers and co-drivers were now enjoying and passing the time like picnic, some were laying under trees, some were playing cards etc, I guess they had call for crane and until it arrive they cant really do anything but wait. The lesson of learning was that they were not panic like we city people use to get even though we know that we can’t do anything but wait.
