The ride to the second RM was a lot easier because I had done the route before and we were riding in a big group. RM was happening in Ramoji film city, and I really wanted to partake in the entire experience, so I consciously decided not to carry work. Thankfully, because of my past record, I got a colleague to act as back up for the two days that I was away.

The group had fun riding, but after a long, hard day on the road with the destination nowhere in sight, patience started wearing thin. Some members wanted to stay the night in Hyderabad and leave in the morning, but finally, after a lot of deliberation, we decided to ride on. When we finally reached, it was the Cinderella story in reverse! – it was close to midnight, the party was just starting, there was a lot of activity and hot food. So much better than being cooked up in some hotel and cold sandwiches for dinner!!

I was staying in the dorm inside Filmcity. When the organizers were escorting me to my room, I was too tired to notice the roads or landmarks leading up to the dorm … which made for a rather interesting next day! I decided to get an early start the next day to catch up with the other folks over coffee and breakfast. I had grossly underestimated the vastness of the film city, and became Alice in the Film City Wonderland. I kept going round in circles and had practically toured the entire city on my purple and white bike. I got some very interesting directions from security guards that led me to the airport, railway station, a nearby film set…. Everywhere except where I had to go! I finally managed to reach the actual venue with the help of one of the organizers, just in time for breakfast. Everyone who was present at the previous RM kept pulling my leg about my ‘missing’ laptop bag. I played along saying I just finished shooting for a song on a bike at the film city!

I had a wonderful time at RM – partying and dancing on the lawns on both days with the nights being surprisingly cool and pleasant. I also made sure that I took the complete tour of the film city, much to the amusement of the security guards who saw me riding around the previous day.

The ride back from Hyderabad to Bangalore was quite eventful – one of the couples fell on the badly lit highway and we had to make sure they were taken care of. We reached Bangalore late at night. Inside the comfort of my warm home, I started to wonder about the fact that the same route was done a year back in about 10 hours and in complete daylight. This time, it took almost 16 hours, and we rode well into the night. Was it because we were such a large group? Maybe, I had just become older and my weary bones were beginning to feel the pain of being on a bike and riding for that long!!!
