Travelling is always fun. We meet different people from different walks of life, and each seem to have an unique story. Here is one such person I met in train and the story was worth sharing.
I met neha on my way to Mumbai. And she seemed to be a  bright girl from a well to do family. But after speaking to her did I come to know the real situation of her family.

It would be so much fun to be dressed up in the Indian avatar and play the traditional games which our grand mothers had played with the folk music in the back …
