Disclaimer: I am not in a bad mood today, and this is not an anti-national post. I love my country and its people. These are just some thoughts on my general observations over the years, so please don’t take any of what you read below personally. And if you do take it personally, please keep it personal.😊
As I boarded my return flight to India recently, I heard some noises coming from near the back rows of the airplane. It appeared that two middle-aged men and their wives were shouting at each other.
The reason? One of the Indian couples had occupied the luggage rack above the seats of the second couple. As was visible from my seat, there were empty racks close to the one these guys were fighting for, but this was seemingly a prized one for which they were shouting at the top of their voices.
As I was taking my seat, a similar hustle, though relatively more civilized happened just next to me. This time it was two aunties who were at loggerheads about their spaces.
Anyways, flights to India, and in India, are a sight to watch when the plane lands and stops at the parking lot. Passengers get up from their seats in such a hurry as if the flight would take off again in the next few seconds and they would miss getting out!
