Our reporter Vishnudas Sheshrao, just back from a little holiday in Nepal when he spent most of his time trying to retrace the footsteps of arrested terrorism suspect Yasin Bhatkal, cannot get over the quaintness of police stations and railway stations on the RuxaulNepal border.
Ruxual station is another matter. It looks very good indeed. From the railway station to the police station is 1. But I had to go to the place from where Bhatkal was supposedly arrested. The rikshaw moved slowly along a rutted road with deep, water-filled potholes and a long traffic jam of oil tankers heading towards Nepal.
A man wearing a lungi-baniyan came out of the first room. He had a datuan in his mouth and was chewing it, a neem twig that is used instead of a tooth-brush in these parts.
There were some people in the room he left, sleeping, and sitting. But he did say Bhatkal had been arrested at a place called Nahar Chowk.
It is a featureless place with a crossroads, some mechanics shops, a sweets and savoury shop. It was hard to imagine why he would ever visit there in the first place. You know the way we Indians go on holiday, and then, probably driven by guilt for those we leave behind, proceed to buy a whole lot of expensive stuff for relatives and friends?
You can now officially stop. Skyscanner, the people who keep doing studies and surveys on travel habits, has carried out one that reveals that put of 1, Indian travellers surveyed, 20 per cent have admitted to passing on unwanted holiday gifts to someone else, mostly to charity.
The young girl looked beautiful and the once very visible Mrs. Thackeray herself, now much lower key, looked almost as good.
Apparently, the engagement comes after ten years of knowing each other, so no surprises ahead for the young couple, just very good wishes and the hope of a happy ever after, says occasional contributor Faisal Saif. One thing that is interesting is that 27 per cent of the travellers surveyed said that they have spent between INR - 10, on the purchase of holiday gifts, while 24 per cent of the travellers admitted to having dished out anywhere between INR 2, - 5, on gifts for others.
Only five per cent admitted to spending less than INR on holiday gifts. Know what we think? They were probably lying. Who really wants to spend on rubbish for others? At least the Ruxaul railway station does not disappoint, a quaint-looking piece of modern architecture that looks old.
A middle-aged couple stood in front of them. I said I wanted to talk. What about, he wanted to know. Where was his senior, I asked. To which he replied that he was the assistant police inspector, the daroga, the senior.
He did not mean it as a compliment. He did not, for he returned the card and said I would have to speak to the SP sahib if I still wanted information. Now I have to get back to my work, he declared. The poor old couple still stood awkwardly in front of the desk. The old man pushed a rupee note forward.
The plain clothes clerk tried to cover it with a notebook but Though 40 per cent of the travellers surveyed admitted to never receiving an unwanted holiday gift, of those who did, 16 per cent of women have said it was cheap jewellery and 10 per cent of men admitted that food and fake DVDs topped their list of holiday gift disappointments.
So what did they do with them? Apparently 46 per cent of the younger generation said they just shoved them out of sight in cupboards to avoid the extreme measure of chucking them away.
The result of the survey goes on to further reveal that it is not just the receiver who regrets the wasted efforts of items purchased overseas.
Nearly 30 per cent of Indian travellers said they never picked up gifts for their bosses followed by office colleagues. Around 18 per cent admitted they hated picking stuff for family and friends because who wants to lug around all that heavy baggage and then find out that your giftee hated the gift anyway.
What are these parents going to teach their own children in future about respect and discipline and the calm strength of debate?
Among the nine people arrested so far for the vandalism, there are two sets of parents! One is the owner of a stall near the school who actually shut shop and joined in the vandalism, as did his wife. Now they hide their faces from the public like the felons that they are.
