John, I don't understand why you are assigning so much of importance to these materialistic things. There are so many people in India who might not have even traveled by a car. Why do we travel and what mode of transport we engage depends on so many factors . I don't think anyone would go by a car or a train or an aeroplane to a place which does not require that much of traveling effort or time just because he can afford it. We generally take a mode of transport that is easily available, convenient and is affordable to us according to our requirement. I have flown in planes and helicopters also but that was mostly as part of my job.
If you ask about my first flight, I don't remember exactly because that took place when I was around five years of age and the journey was from Guwahati to Kolkata (then Calcutta). Please do not feel disappointed about these things. Enjoy your life and try to improve the quality; you can do it.
John, I am not able to understand how remote the place you are in in Nagaland that you say that you are even cut off from Kohima and Mukokchung- I can only say that you are not ready to move out of your comfort zone. Common, be brave and instead of taking everything in the negative sense, believe in God, you family members and friends and always approach life with a positive attitude. It will help you. Let that change be your first flight and the one to success!
