The Beer & Skin Maniacs

The Jhaag Lake had fascinated me & Dips a lot and we had planned a second ride to the Lake for sure…so the Planning started…I floated a mail to the group and then it began !!! a total of 116 mails…replies, replies and more replies to the extent that Sunny & Viks were shouting at us for fucking around with their already sloth-bear type Internet Bandwidth…Poor souls, but still me and Dips didn’t show them any mercy and continued to merrily replying to each other’s mails…in between Negi also contributed…

So then the Date, Meeting point and Time was decided…31st May 2008 at 6 AM infront of the DT Mega Mall, Gurgaon, surprisingly Dips was the first one to reach !!! followed by Chaddha and me…and then slowly but surely all of the other guys trickled in…the most striking was Sunny in his little-long Beige coloured Undies…proudly showing his legs and also with a very rugged unshaved look…maybe he hasn’t shaved for a month…Inflation is hitting him really hard I guess…its high time the Indian Government did something for him and other hapless Indians…there were 3 first timers as well…Sheriyar, Manpreet and Tsering aka Top Gun…so in total we were 10 guys on our 10 bulls….

And then tragedy struck…just 10 metres post we started I realized I had a flat tyre…it was a heart-shattering moment for me which can’t be expressed in words her…the grief was so much that my spine shivered…my legs tweaked and my eyes were almost watering !!! the Mighty One was struck by a 2 inches screw… in short…I WAS SCREWED !!! I parked my bike and then hopped on to Negi`s beast and utilized the pillion opportunity to click snaps of fellow riders and the inviting Gurgaon – Faridabad Road….

The weather was extremely good for a ride and having watery fun at the Lake !!! we all reached the lake soon and then after 5 minutes of blabbering…Dips shouted…”Pull out the beers Yaar” !!! this sardaar is a Beer Maniac for sure… then everybody pulled out their beer Bottles and Cans in case of Filthy Rich Negi and soon we were gobbling up beer at 7 AM in the morning with bikes, buddies and good weather around !!! it was pure bliss…amidst all this alcoholic revelry Sunny pulled out his Milk Bottle specially packed by his loving wife !!! eyeballs came out…silence struck and birds also went still !!! I mean it was a fuckin Beer Ride and not some Gurgaon Milk Festival…but then Sunny sadly explained the reason and got himself inducted in the Cheers session with a snap to boot !!! we showed our mute sympathy to him and continued sipping beer straight from the bottles…

Then the love for water inside me shook me from inside and I decided to take a plunge in the water…soon I was in my undies and in the water…this initiated others (see I can be inspiration as well to others !!!)…Negi, Tsering, Sunny, Doeger and then Dips followed and we started having beer in the water and going for short swims and underwater Dips… everybody was speaking at the same time and one had to shout to make himself heard !!! believe me having beer in the middle of lake is a kind of fun which has to be experienced for sure…the water at the lake is clean and cold and triples the fun !!! and if you have a certain human being named Negi with you then its just out of this world…his non-sense humour is surely fun and taking his trip is awesome !!! I started to play pranks with him and pulling his leg (yes literally)…

Chaddha, Sheriyar, Viks, Manpreet and Chaddha were cheerful spectators and also part-time photographers whilst we all were havin fun in the water and yes also the transporters of beer to us !!! we all started to shout at them to come and join us… suddenly we saw Chaddha and Sheriyar removing their clothes !!! And joining us for a dip…but 5 minutes later they were out…I guess they missed their respective wives !!! ha ha ha… but Sunny was oblivious of this Married Truth I guess !!! Manpreet and Viks were still to move their ass and come inside… I am sure Viks was in no mood to give us a free show of his impressive Arnold type of physique…so he decided not to take proverbial plunge !!!

The temperature started to heat up and our tummies were empty after working hard in the water and we decided to come out of the water, finish the remaining beers and leave for our next destination, Chaudhary Dhaba for some Butter-Dripping Paranthas and Milky Tea !!! when we reached the Dhaba I don’t know who spotted a empty alcohol bottles junkyard and we got ourselves clicked in front of thousands of empty alcohol bottles…I guess all the bottles emptied by the alcohol guzzling Gurgaon residents comes there !!! there were all brands available…ranging from Jack Daniels, Chivas Regal, Absolut to Blenders Pride, Old Monk and Royal Challenge !!! we also contributed and kept our 10 empty beer bottles in the stack !!! we are never to be left behind in any kind of Community Service !!!

Then the breakfast and the Bakar session followed…with loads of cold drinks to boot…we started to plan the next long ride and the next gang meet…but no concrete conclusion was reached…we all are waiting to start another looooooooooong chain mail extravaganza and troubling the bandwidth again !!! so much for the Internet Revolution !!!

This way the Jhaag Lake Ride ended…it had everything in it…Tragedy…Drama…Emotions…Alcohol…Milk… Water…Cigarettes…Paranthas…Tea…Endless Bakar…it surely had the makings of a Bollywood Movie !!!with so many heroes vying for Screen Space !!! and yes who can forget the Beasts !!! 10 of them…actually 9 if you count out the punctured Mighty One !!!

So here I end my blog with a promise that CHE WOULD BE BACK ON THE ROAD AGAIN…

Dude! You missed out Dips dragging Manpreet into the water. His cell is now no more and so this incident merits a mention so that the cell's soul can Rust in Peace ;)
