Kharar (Ajitgarh) to Kila Raipur via Ludhiana Journey by Bus

31st January – Third day of Kila Raipur festival 2015 and freezing weather conditions. We decided to visit Kila Raipur by bus instead of the motorbike. A local person guided us to reach Kharar bus stand to get a bus for Ludhiana and from Ludhiana – bus for Kila Raipur.

We followed the advice. Morning hours at 9 we were at Kharar bus stand. There are many buses for Ludhiana every few minutes. A bus conductor was shouting Ludhiana-Ludhiana-Ludhiana. We enter the bus. 9:15 the bus started its journey. Rs. 70/- per person the bus fare between Kharar and Ludhiana. Paid.

At 11:30 am we reached Amar Shaheed Sukhdev Interstate Bus Terminal, Ludhiana. The journey was very much comfortable to compare to our motorbike journey in past two days. Road condition – fantastic.

After reaching interstate bus terminal we inquired about the bus for Kila Raipur. We were guided by a bus conductor to reach adjacent local bus terminal. Just 50 meter walking distance we were at local bus terminal. It was almost empty in-comparison to interstate bus terminal. We inquire about the bus for Kila Raipur.

We were told from pillar no. 9 bus will go for Kila Raipur. Currently, there was no bus but was about to arrive. We were hungry because of no breakfast till now. A small shop opposite pillar no. 4 was making rotis. We requested for breakfast. As it was afternoon hours he said – Thali will be served only. Ok – said I. Rs. 50/- unlimited thali was served which was too good in taste specially Rajma. The food was hot, and the owner himself was preparing rotis. Fantastic in-short the food quality.

After lunch it was time for Kila Raipur journey. We were getting late a little bit. At 12:05 our bus started its journey for Kila Raipur. Rs. 18/- per person bus fare from Ludhiana till Kila Raipur.

1:15 noon hours we reached Kila Raipur approx. one km before the stadium the bus dropped us. By 1:40 pm we reached Kila Raipur stadium walking one km. The best about this journey – The bus was passing via various villages.

A wish – instead of starting at 9 am it was better we started much earlier from Kharar bus stand. The sports were already started when we reached the stadium and spent only few few hours.

Yes, I forgot to tell you for return journey we inquired from the bus conductor. We were told at 4:50 pm same bus from the same dropping point we may return for Ludhiana. And let me tell you exactly at 4:50 pm the bus arrived at the same point and we returned to Ludhiana. Such a time perfection specially by a bus a new experience. Well done.
