I think of Railways for R. Railway has been a blessing for me, and I enjoy the scenic beauty of traveling and at the same time have fun, watching the chai walla, samosa wallah and a whole lot of vendors who come selling water, cool drinks, ice cream, snacks and of course the women who get in with various kinds of seasonal fruits & nuts.
I had the privilege of travelling so much in a train, before I got married; I worked in a particular organization that focused on lot of training, and there was always opportunity for me to travel with my colleague or sometimes alone, and watch as the train stops at every railway station, I find people so busy each waiting for someone to arrive! Bidding good bye to their loved ones, the railway station will be full of welcomes and goodbyes!
The train reminds me of my own journey in life, and there are various people whom I meet as I keep traveling, some give me laughter, some pain and others walk along and give a good company, some others make my burden a little lighter, give a shoulder, their hands to hold, and give so much happiness, that even after they leave me, their memories hang on giving me laughter, joy and fun.
Each one of us are on a journey, as the passengers keep getting down the train, with new passengers occupying the seat, we too have to get down, when our station comes, allow new passengers to occupy our seat.
We make our journey an enjoyable and meaningful one, when we smile and accommodate people as they come into our lives, and appreciate them for their capacities and talents, and share what we have with them, for we do not know when the station will come for us and them.
Sometimes we may find ourselves heading in the wrong direction, it’s okay to get down, and ask for new directions, it is better not to look back, not to put down ourselves for making a wrong choice, the past is over, we cannot go backwards, instead we look forward with gratitude for it has taken various situations, experiences of our lives to reach where we are today! so let’s enjoy the ride
Wishing you a Happy Sunday !
