Love the train journey

    PUSH, PUSH , A LITTLE MORE and with a shrill she faints. Well this is not the scene in a maternity ward, but the unanimous voice of hundreds of people trying to get down from the train.This is also a test where one side ie people trying to get down from the compartment try to show their strength to those who try to board the train. And finally the stronger group wins the match and only the smarter ones from the weaker side sneak into or get down from the compartment. Others have to try their chance in the next station.


No doubt Passengers constantly complain about the crowds, the heat, the madness.

"A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours. Marley taught me about living each day with unbridled exuberance and joy, about seizing the moment and following your heart. He taught me to appreciate the simple things-a walk in the woods, a fresh snowfall, a nap in a shaft of winter sunlight. And as he grew old and achy, he taught me about optimism in the face of adversity. Mostly, he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty.”
― John Grogan, Marley and Me: Life and Love With the World's Worst Dog"
A person can learn a lot from the train journey also or fronm anything as a matter of fact and the experience is unforgettable.

1. Nothing beats pushing and fighting with the crowd to get a seat in the train. The satisfaction that one gets is invincible..:)
2.We get to make train friends or even compartment friends due to the psychological bond that is formed by doing the similar actions and facing similar problems while travelling.So one more tab added to the list of friends.
3.I bet the stuffs that we get in train like the pens,hair clips,wallets 1 RS samosas, we don't even get when we search for them outside.
4. Want to build the public speaking skill ? get into a crowded train. Even those people who are scared to speak in front of the crowd are made to fight back for the places and even shout!
5.Forgot to workout in the morning? no worries. Get into a train, don't sit. Stand .

Now, a narrow-minded person would jump to irrational conclusions, screaming discomfort, and then blaming the government and municipality for the sorry state of affairs that is our railways.

But the more intelligent ones among us know that this is just another opportunity to learn so many things.

  1. Its a brilliant quote at the end Sahitya!

    I totally agree with the train journeys! The last time I came from train was a 36hr travel from Delhi and it was amazing. Made a bunch of friends, someone was playing the guitar and absolutely fantastic people to talk to. So simple true, no pretentions whatsoever. So many great memories
