Escaped from the flood!

Since I'm a bit busy with official works, didn't get enough time to check out the comments and reply to them. I was supposed to leave Mumbai on 30th night by Dadar-Chennai. But all trains were canceled on those days (I think even now it has not resumed!). We then booked ticket on a bus to Bangalore for Sunday evening. Rains started again on Saturday night and continued till Sunday afternoon without any break. I thought I was going to get stranded once again. But fortunately by Sunday afternoon the rains stopped. Fortunately the express highway was open then and our bus managed to get out of Mumbai without any damage. Unconfirmed reports said that the highway was flooded later and was closed for sometime. Anyway, we managed to escape. Rains continued after we left and Mumbai got flooded again, but not to the extreme of the previous week. We reached Bangalore on Monday afternoon. Managed to get the Shatabdi Express to Chennai and reached Chennai on Monday night. In all, it took only 27hrs from Mumbai to Chennai, including a break of one and half hours at Bangalore. Considering that some train even take more than that time to reach from Mumbai to Chennai, our journey was a success. In Chennai there are no rains. Hot and humid as usual. I'm returning to Allahabad on 13th, reaching there on 15th. If I get time, will come back with more Chenna news. Otherwise, more posts from Allahabad.
