Another Scene from Passion Play

I normally reserve my airtkts much in advance and I did so in 1984
Reserved for Passion Play for me,mykids.4 tkts
I came on a Holiday to Chennai and my return tkt was booked by Air France
Bombay to Paris and Paris to Munich
all sectors was confirmed .

The Amazing Alps

I just checked just a day before my departure from Madras with Indian Airlines
As I had to go to Bombay to catch Air France at 11:30 PM
They said My tkts for 2Pm flights confirmed(Tuesday)
On that day evening Indira Gandhi had dismissed NTR’s Govt in AP
All Trains were stopped to Delhi,chaos everywhere
On Wednesday I casually checked with IA for my 2 PM Flts
They said Our Tkts are not Confirmed!
I went to meet the Manager of IA
Mr.Ramasamy was surrounded by many MPs/MLAs and I cd nt enter his cabin
I had to take the 2pm flt if I had to attend the Passion Play next day
I begged him but he said “sorry”
I had the courage to shout at him
“Ramasamy I am going to sue Indian Airlines as I will lose heavily if I miss Air FRance
Besides you had told me YDay that my tkts were confirmed
I am also writing a letter to the Hindu right now and
atleast one of these guys here is a witness”
Ramasamy got a bit panicky on my shouting and checked my tkts
Indeed they had removed ournames from the Confirmed Passengers List!
He luckily obliged and got the tkts confirmed again!
It was a miracle on that day!
