Random Thoughts ! 

It’s never too late to undertake a #Journey . I got my first Passport 30 years back when I was working in a nationalised Bank with #Guwahati as my first Branch in 1976 when many of the Bloggers who follow me here & many people who follow my Twitter account @Rajivbakshi52 were not even born . The Passport papers remained blank with no entry in the first phase . Just to get another proof of residence in my kitty ( me being a banker for 35 years ) , I got my passport renewed for  the first time in 2005 .  But this time I got the chance to visit Pakistan for the first time in the year 2006 . The tour was historic & the memory was memorable . It resulted in writing two stories on the alien land which are part of my Book . https://rajivbakshiblog.wordpress.com  I got chance to visit Malaysia & Singapore . The visit was excellent , but I lost my luggage on my #Journey from Kulalampar to Singapore in the bus , for which I have yet to get a claim inspite of the consumer court case filed by my lawyer against the travel agent . 

In between a visit to Sri Lanka . And on 4 visits to USA a few before retirement from Machhiwara District Ludhiana & a few after the retirement  in 2012 . 

  1. And here I am on my present visit to Chicago , watching falling of snow flakes & keeping myself warm in – 15 C . Feeling happy that my book on short stories is in 16 countries , 118 libraries in India , 3 libraries in USA . Book is available via Notion Press , Amazon , Flipkart & also on AmazonKindle .
