How long the queue/line was
What it was about
How you felt about waiting in this long queue or line.
Well, to begin with, waiting in long queues to get something done is typical in India. I suppose, there is nobody in India who hasn’t gone through the hassle. Similarly, it has happened to me also a lot of times. However, one experience which was very exhausting in particular, was when I went to upgrade information registered with my Aadhar card.
If I am not mistaken, it happened around last month. I had bought a new cell phone with a sim card and my contact number had changed. Since I had to open a new bank account, I was required to submit my Aadhar card with all the updated information. Hence, I visited a local government office in the vicinity to get my Aadhar updated. But as soon as I reached the office, I was baffled at the length of the queue. Supposedly, nobody is spared the ordeal in a crowded city like Mumbai. But as I had the urgency to get the work done, I was left with no other alternative and had to patiently await my turn.
Wildly guessing, there were around 25-30 people standing ahead of me in the line. Seeing such a crowd in front of me was daunting. However, having my mobile phone and headphones with me was a great relief, as I could kill time by playing games and listening to music. Although it was a tiresome experience, it felt great when I finally got my work done.
Here is the list of the latest cue cards which are released every four months.
