A small journey in train...

I had to take a very quick trip to Gwalior , where my sister stays with my brother in law and 2 naughtiest but sweetest kids...and since train is the most convenient trip between Delhi to Gwalior - I had a chance to travel  in train alone after a long long time...and wow! I am feeling so good after a long long time...here is why? :)

Train journeys have always been like a rejuvenating trip to garden for me...I like to sit in silence and watch out in the greenery and think about special people who fill my life...moments which have given me the toughest time and the best time in my life so far...those 5-6 hours of journey in the train act as a purgation and meditation time for me...weeding out certain thoughts and trying to fill the mind with plans and dreams of future...

Sitting inside the train - I often observe people...try to live their life...husband and wife trying to soothe a crying baby ...a young fellow trying to win over a lady, a guy (me!) lost in thoughts of someone so much ...2 people fighting over which is the worse state of India UP or Bihar! - you get to see everything in the train

I always find myself humming my thoughts on the speed and sound of train...it goes fastest when train is at its fastest speed and slows or stops when the train comes to halt...I also love to think of stories of lives of people whom I saw outside the window - a lady with a small baby in the field carrying water, 2 girls laughing on their way to school, a bunch of fellows waving hands on us...I love the life outside the train...I feel as part of life of so many people in such a short time

Such train journeys have become more and more infrequent because of the corporate life but given a chance I always chose to travel by train...I simply love the lessons of life such train journeys teach me...
