PrefRENCE !!

I visited a green field project located at central India. My flight landed around 7 Pm at the airport and our pickup vehicle was ready. With me was one of my colleague and a external consultant. Due to short distance it was unfortunate that no tea/coffee was served in the flight. It was cold and we decided to have some tea in nearby hotels as the driver took us from the airport. Around 10 minutes of journey, he stopped the vehicle and we entered into a small hotel. I was taken aback, when the owner & staff showed their respect by standing as we entered. The driver with a smile on his face, informed us that it was the culture, for all visitors. As I was feeling hungry, I ordered some light snacks, after a while I asked for tea. It took me to a surprise when I got the reply saying “Tea is not available”. Our initial thought was that the hotel was not providing the tea so we thought of searching other hotels for having tea. In one of the road side dabs, when I asked for tea – I got a stunned response saying Tea is not available !

Without tea we restarted our journey for the destination of green field project. As we were new to the place, I initiated conversation with the driver on the topic of feasibility of getting tea in some other place on the journey. I wanted to smoke, but at the same time my colleagues could have hot tea and get refreshed up. The driver with a sarcastic smile expressed his helplessness in arranging tea for us. As after 7:30 no shops would be in a position of providing tea. In fact the roads had a deserted look with few countable people moving around and shops with less footprint and about to close.

I wondered, In Mumbai it is most happening even until 12 in midnight. Although its less happening at Hyderabad at 12 but can manage until 11 PM. The driver taking us in confidence expressed his views. He informed that after 7:30 the business comes to a halt. You will not find people roaming around. Since it is an tribal belt, people wakeup early and do their work and go to bed early and hence one cannot find anything interesting. From his thoughts I could make out that he is missing the city life.

In cities even after midnight, one can observe that the idiot box is making noise. Many of us concentrate and watch those programs and keep on surfing with blinked eyes just to get stressed both our thoughts and vision. I have my closed one who watches television past midnight and wakes up late in the morning. The habits of hardly and smartly working is inculcated within us. We do not stress our body and get a peaceful sleep. We stress our body by watching television and hearing the noise of the anchors shouting making us feel stressed out and going to sleep.
