Safar main suffer no ways

As everybody says Mumbai is gr8 ,glittering, energetic but mumbai's train not for us.So true but
When i look back i have all cherishing happening memories in my mind...
School was in local area so never had to travel in rush hours .Before traveling to any relatives place dad used to scan Railways time table for ghatkopar local trains so we could travel comfortably..
{My notion about fast & slow train was fast train travels faster than slow train. So foolish}
Train’s speed ,Mind calculation for catching best train to save 1-2 mins ,door standing exp, Ladies fight to get window seat ,relaxing buts & legs on 4th seat ,Monsoon greenery ..Colorful blossom along rail track ,cool breeze ,splashes of rain drops on face ...All these and many more attributes train journey.
Trains speed was always factor why mumbaikar choose it .I chosen it fotr its separate lady compartment .(god save gals from Bus mob).
Going to Ruia was mini trip .Catch same train ,same compartment was our gals motto .After each station gals grp was out of control. .continuous chew chaw.. more loud & more active ..just talking, talking & some times singing..bitching abt teacher was most favorite.. All new scandals we heard in college were primary discussion..
New bomaby word says it was our Newly constructed Bombay. Big big clean neat stations ,Lavish Pass way ,Nice pantry & no trains ...Positive thing to take out of it was this train delay bought me close to my friends.
Just to add life in our 2 hrs routine traveling we used do some crap in train .i remember giving beggar boy some money & asking him to sing loudly & continuous near my friend ears” Pardesi Pardesi tu Janna nahi tu jana nahi…” ..She got pissed off but cudn't do much abt it as that boy was pakka on his words ..he didn't stop singing still she got off.
I used see one fundoo & intimidating dream during initial days of traveling .Our Vashi train is complete transparent made up of Glass... high tech train to high tech park...Running like spped of light inside through vashi's creek ..With all crocodiles shark tortoise & octopuses are lingering arnd her...amazing but how come no swimmer 'll get happy abt it...for me its was just a night mare....
Train’s route over vashi creek was awesome & mind air whooshing inside compartment in full force taking away many ppls chuni ,deforming their dress pattern ,throwing hairs in air, as if blowing them off ,if not hold ..fisherman nets & boats. . Beautiful senset…Horizon sparkling in red rays ..feels like to rewind time & catch same train ,same time with same ppl.
This train has given me strength to face speed of life ,Njoy its diversity & last but not the least Njoy ur time & company..(Miss u all)
Thats why I say..Safar main suffer no ways…

Well, nothing like Mumbai locals! If you know how to travel by locals in Mumbai, then you can travel anywhere in the world without any problem whatsoever.

Like beer, one hates them first, but slowly start liking them. :-)
