    Hardly we had driven for 10 minutes when we had to stop again. Rain was harsh. It was becoming difficult to drive. We were a little worried as there was not much place for stopping i was thinking of stopping under some tree when we spotted a makeshift school Govt primary school Kaidaam on the way along the road. There was no choice, we moved the bike in the school and went into a class room.

    2 teachers were waiting there, probably for the rain to become slow. and when we reached they waited for us to leave and lock the school. They exhibited hospitality and we stayed there. It was already chutti time for school kids so the school was empty.

    We parked our bike in one class room and went in the other

    it was a makeshift school funded by some NGO. it was a good effort. The school was cost efficient as it was constructed of fiber structures. It had the same washrooms and the class rooms were adequately stuffed for students. the teachers seemed educated and unlike the schools available in our other rural areas.

    These were two fiber rooms situated infront of each other. We parked the bike in this class room.

    It had raining cats, dogs and even RATS now. Impossible to travel. We had no winter travel kit. Neither clothing. Even bike accessories were not adequate. I was worried that the water does not seep in the clutch & speed cable. Because that would have been a difficult problem to handle.

    MD standing behind the school for a rainy pic. The rain slowed down but did not die down. and after reaching a consensus we both decided to move in rain. the motto was kuch bhi ho kalam jana hai aj.

    I was not interested in driving. It was cold and we decided that if we stayed more we would get warmer and our bodies would be in trouble if the rain doesn't stop and we have to drive again.
