a day at railway station...

seems like the essay report na...that we were to write in for our english or hindi exams.

well that was the first thought i had when i visited railway station...followed by so many-stupidest thought.

here it goes.
Yesterday i went to railway in the city beautiful.
i had to receive a friend of mine. 
frankly speaking i used to have these weird ideas related to train journeys , most importantly the railway station.

thanks to our bollywood movies, i had this misconception that no matter what, you have to run after the train.
i was sure that " someone giving you a hand and all" is a movie-thing. but yes... you have to run after train.
actually being paranoid, i haven't much traveled in train. well truly speaking its just four times I have got lucky. And of these four, two i can't remember...because i was a small kid back then. and was traveling with my parents, so i guess it was their concern.

and the one other time, i was going to college (Panipat from Karnal) and due to bus-strike i was forced to take the train. huh:( and i faced the biggest issue of the lifetime- where exactly was i supposed to stand on the platform 
to get to my respective boggy ON TIME.  even on the fourth one wasn't a help, in getting over this fear. huh

i was supposed to go to KURUKSHETRA from my hometown(KAITHAL) for some stupid exam.
i left home at 5:45, that means i woke up at 5(haaha hatered started from there only)
and then there were almost ..i don't know..i don't know how to give a rough idea about no of people just by looking at their density or intensity.

anyways we somehow managed to enter in...and then luckily we got some decent space to stand...

so, when yesterday i went to receive him, i couldn't bring myself to enter in the platform area, instead i waited in parking...yes i thought people really get lost out there.

but i found out that i needed to drop him back in the evening. so i thought it was a good chance to experience the craziness in the platform area. and this is what i found out-
people sitting or standing or sleeping,...on the floor or a few uncomfortable seats they could find...and waiting for their trains.

announcements every few seconds... you got to know about your train n- no of times before it arrives. where n=5*min left.

when your train arrives, you can hear it all around you...from announcing lady, people around you...and even the KULIs.

and yes, you can see the train, far before it reaches the station. and all you have to do is see the sequence of the boggies and find yours.

and then i asked my friend, what if i am standing far away from mine. 
he smiled and said... these boxes are interconnected and then i was relieved with an answer to my long time battle with the misconception about trains :-P

Something new....

Aaah.... Guess what today i thought about several things that i want to share with you people... But i realized this needs a break...

There must be something worth writing... ;p

Was reading a novel-
In between some arguement
And the hero asks heroine- what do you want me to do?

Her reply- "i don't know".

And i wasn't able to stop myself.... I was laughing out aloud....
Truely said-how could a guy understand what his girl wants..when she herself has got no idea....
Funny but true..
Well if some guy writes this on his facebook wall...i will be so-so angry... I may even shout....what the hell these guys think...

But i know its true...i mean...we girls always know what the other person expects... What we should do...

But we are seldomly sure about what we want...
;) may be because...since early days of our lives....we keep everyone else before have lost contact with ourselves...


just a thought...

I guess the best thing i learned till that - if you feel have a war going on inside your head, you are not sure about the next step you will take...or where your life is going...where you will be , the very next day...or a week later or what you will do...So what if sometimes you feel that things are wrong...nothing is working out the way you suggested... still you will be fine...You will live by all this... many-many similar days are waiting for you...Big dreams and even bigger problems are being positioned by the almighty , just to add a little adventure...But you will live ...It will all be fine in the end...
Just be yourself...and see how beautiful a person you are... Just smile...may be just to practice it...
Because even your smile is a little tired and sad...tomorrow it will be happy...real and satisfying... Life is not about a moment...or a day...or a week...not even a year... Its about the whole...its about you... :)

Count your blessings

"If material things are what you are talking about when you say i am blessed, You have no idea what a blessing is. "
Yes, its weird coming from a shopaholic like me :) but isn't it correct. We all or I must say- most of us have what we need to live our lives. Its just that we want more, something more and that list never ends.
We get something we wanted , and we develop a liking for something else. Its good to have your thoughts in sync, to move ahead, to wish and make your own wishes come true. But there is no way, those wishes can define your happiness.

One thing I learned from observing people is that we wish for these material things and act crazy for them when we believe there is something missing in the life. Something more meaningful, something you believe you should have got as a right or something you really deserve. It could be being alone, losing someone, not having that dream job, just anything.  And we use these material things to just fill in those gaps. To…
