The BlogAdda Weekly: Found In Transit (Part-4)

Tales From The Tracks

Happy Hump Day! Hope you guys are dealing with the mid week crisis well! Since I kept this week’s transit a bit of a surprise, let me give you a hint. “Chal Chaiyya Chaiyya…”, I shake my legs on this track as soon as I start my journey. Did you get a vision of me on the top of a train meandering through lush hilly terrains? That’s exactly where I am! Not spreading my arms like a certain Mr. Khan, but safely ensconced in a train bogie. I am on my way to Shaantipur to get some peace and quiet after testing my endurance in Mumbai locals. Yes, my super comfy and super entertaining flight last week did take off some of my stress, but nothing beats the good ol’ rattling Indian Railways chariot for long distance travel.

Switch To Airplane Mode

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen! How are you doing this Wednesday? Pardon me for my extremely courteous avatar, but when in Rome, behave as the Romans do. And when at the airport, be as full of etiquette as the Air India Maharaja. My boss wants me to attend a meeting in another city, so I have a chance to board a flight and get a bird’s view of the world. After traveling on the ground through buses and trains, here I am, part of the hoi polloi waiting to board a flight!

In Search of ‘Local’Fauna

Hi guys, I hope you’re having a great time with some engaging stuff going on BlogAdda. I’m thoroughly enjoying the Tangy Tuesday Picks from yesterday and trying to read the Buzzing Blogosphere on the Cabinet Reshuffle, but it’s a tad difficult to focus on reading while jostling for space in a shuddering Mumbai local. Yep, today is the day Safar Naama takes the Mumbai trains – famed, feared and still the fastest way to get around. After a wobbling day on the wheels of a bus that went round and round, I hop into the famous Mumbai local for today’s transit.

Known to carry a huge population of ‘mango’ people like me, these rattling metal boxes are every metro city’s lifelines. Transporting lakhs of people every day in their efficient and ever full belly, local trains are the best place to look at a wide cross section of people. Local train journeys are an experience you survive through, which not only builds character but also gives you great new stories to remember. So till the time my station arrives, I’m putting on my anthropologist’s goggles and going off on a hunt for ‘local’ fauna.
