My travelogue: Two faced Indians.

After CWG and Delhi bhraman, I was leaving for home. My train that was scheduled to departure from Delhi to Kanpur at 7:15 AM arrived at 6:40 PM delayed by 11:30 hours. And a normal train that takes around 6 hours from Delhi to Kanpur took more than 9 hours. Bhartiya rail apni apechhao par ek baar fir khari utarti hui! :P :D


As I left from Delhi, after two stations again it stopped for some signal clearance problem. As it started again I dialed my dad’s no to tell him that I have left for Kanpur. A guy who was standing on the platform barged in his hand from the window and snatched my phone away from my hands. It was so filmy that I could not believe it for a moment that my phone has gone. I could not do anything as the train had already started and there was all dark on the platform. But I was happy because I was safe. Sad thing was that before leaving I had recharged it with INR 333.00 + INR 43.00 which was deplorable.

Let me introspect something from this incident.

People like Indian culture, tradition, the way we live, scenic beauty, Indian food and many other things but what make them not to like us in spite of that that we are born in the same soil. I think this is the very thing that leaves a bad impression that we Indians are not liked by the white people.

Here first chapter is closed. Now in the second episode which happened when I was travelling from Kanpur to Kolkata. After much juggling I booked ticket by Rajdhani on 19th. This time luck was with me I think because there was a thing to take my entire attention throught the journey. Ohhhh Let me stop myself to waste time in falderal things and come to the original topic.

So when I woke up in the morning, I went to the washroom. I unclipped my watch to wash hands and forgot to pick up while returning. After 10 minutes or so I somehow remembered that watch is not in my hands (My body is very sensitive to phone, wallet and watch). I went to the same toilet and asked the lady which was just coming out and I got a negative reply. I waited for a guy who was in. After another 5 minutes he came out and I asked the same. He handed over the watch to me. I respected him saying Thank you from the bottom of my heart and left the place.

So these are the two incidents that came upon in “My Journey” (here the content do some Justice on my blog title). Same people but different behavior/ attitutude.

Unity in diversity or diversity in unity?? !!!

P.S. 1. Ohh i forgot to tell that I have got the same no again. please forward your nos in the same no that you have already with you as I have lost all the contacts.

P.S. 2. I have got some work in office so I might not be frequent in here for some time. :D

These two incidents tell us that there are all sort of people in this world, we must believe in good one and forget the others thinking that they must be in bad conditions to take the crime.

hey a good one! really a good one .....and it has the right title, the right story line...... i believe in a very general kind of theory in this..it states that " every coin if real and existing is two faced" ...did u get the mantra man? be it anything - a theory , a hypothesis, a law or a situation.....so it all depends on which face we get to see ,there by enabling us to frame opinions ...and the moment you happen to see both the faces you get the "gyan"....
