An Outing with The Family

It is always good to go outdoors. Free air and open sky are always welcome. Quite often one feels choked inside the house and cities. It is good to run away into the open air for a day when one has the time. Picnics were very common for families in olden days. But now even picnics are becoming rare and uncommon. Families just do not have time, money and mood to go away from their boring familiar surroundings. That indeed is one of the greatest ills of modern times.

A picnic is a delightful diversion. It takes you away from your dull daily routine. it produces a soothing effect and adds charm to life. Sometimes it is possible to plan and go out. When it is possible, one should avail of the opportunity.

We had one such opportunity last Sunday. Early in the morning we got ready to spend a day at the Okhla Canal Bank. My mom prepared special dishes and my sister helped in making other preparations. We took a thermos filled with tea and took along couple of carpets for spreading under the trees to make ourselves feel comfortable.

It was not easy to catch a bus from Connaught Place to Okhla Barrage. We made some enquiries but there was no bus available. We were told to get a bus for Lajpat Nagar and then get a bus for Okhla from there. So we boarded a bus for Lajpat Nagar. But at Lajpat Nagar we had to wait for an hour to get a bus for Okhla. But Okhla was worth all the trouble we had to take to go there.

It was a beautiful scene and weather was cooler here than the city. There were green trees and they provided nice shade to the picnickers. Some fishermen were busy catching fish. We also hired a boat and enjoyed boating for some time. We were indeed very happy to play the boat turn by turn. There were a lot of children playing with each other under the shady trees. There we took our lunch and lunch seemed specially tasty at Okhla. We felt that our lunch was not enough because everyone ate more than usual.

After lunch we all had a nap under the balmy shade of the trees. The children of the family played with children of other picnickers. Some old women read their holy books. In the afternoon there was a drizzle and even a few drops of rain were very much welcome at that season of the year. But the rain broke the magic web of our sleep. Our sweet dream came to an end.

Now it was getting evening. We took the evening tea which we had brought with us along with some snacks specially made for the trip. When it was getting dark we packed our things and set out for our home. We boarded a bus and returned home. It was really a nice and joyful outing.
