Kaalai kodumai - Good morning from Gilsbert

If Gilsbert is there can kodumais be far away... apdinu Beats paadhirunthaalum paadirupaaru. Athenna enna mayamao manthiramo therila..Gilsbert manage to find kodumai in remotest of situations.

It so happened that in the new kambeni that he had joined, his shift timing starts at midnight 8 AM. Since Gilsbert stays at one end of the world and the kambeni located at other extreme, cab comes at artha rathiri 7 AM to pickup saga pulimootais in ara thookam on the way to aapece. Needless to say Gilsbert being the first pickup has to board the cab first.

On that mangalagaramana monday midnight the kadangara cabkaaran came at 6.45 AM itself. He kept on calling Gilsbert to ask for route to his place.

"Cab kaar cab kaar..from Gemini you take the 4th right and come straight..take second left..come straight and take 2nd right come straight...."
Athukumiula straight left right thaangatha cab driver..

"Dei Gilsbert..unakku vazhi therilaina utru..naan vera yaarkitayachum ketu vanthukaren...nee pointuku vanthiru" sollitu cut the call.

Gilsbert came sleepwalking and boarded the cab. Having come early the driver was happily asleep.
"pesama cab drivera poidlama" nu yosichikittay.."cabkaar..cabkaar...please getup..aapeece ponum" nu kadami unarchiyoda Gilsbert wakes up the driver.
The bewildered driver wakes up and starts the car apologizing all the way from gear change to ignition.

"Enga saar ponum"
"Oh..adutha pickupum route theriyatha..seri naan solren ponga"
Gilsbert expertly navigates the cab to the second pickup, Mansakulla inimay intha aala vazhi solla sollitu naama oru kutti thookkam podalamnu calculation was running.
The second guy boards the cab and dutifully takes the role of the navigator.
"Ipdiye nera poneenganna antha aavin booth kitta aduthavanga nippanga"
The confused driver asked "ethana per sir"
"Motham 6 peru"
"5 per thaana sonaanga"
"Adhu daily roster mathi potukitu irupaanga..athelam naanga pathukarom..you start"
"naan routeku pudusu office poga konjam vazhi solidreengala"
Grumbling that ithenna imsai..thoongalam paatha vida maatan polarukkaynu polambikittay the second guy grunts his assent.
After a few minutes travel both Gilsbert and the other guy gets calls on their phone from other cab mates.
"Guys where are you? we are waiting in your point"
"Ungala yaaru anga vara sonna..we are on the way to pick you guys up"
"Huh..Gilsbert..we are on the cab already"

Gilsbert looks at the other guy and with a sudden realization tries to call the cell number of the cab driver. It rings and the driver picked it up but not the one he was boarded.
"Sir..neenga enakku vazhi sollitu neenga vazhi mari poiteengala..enga irukeenga"
Gilsbert cuts the call and asked the driver
"neenga entha office cab?"
"TCSnga..neenga Siruseri thana poganum"
"Adapavi..nanga ambattur poganumda...yov..ID card maatikittu yaar vandila erinalam ethindrivia."
Nalla vela thookka kalakathula vera kambenila poitu erangama irunthomnu arakka parakka gilsbert and saga pulimootai rushed to the point where their cab was waiting.

Naatula oru gilsku evlo kodumai nadakuthu paarunga makkalay...ithelaam theerpaar illaya :( avvvvvvvvvvvvvvv
