An amazing story related to the Mumbai Local Trains.
Suresh Biswas recounts a funny incident about a man who had boarded the local for Matunga, but accidentally took the wrong local which didn’t stop at the Matunga station. The man got really worried upon realizing his mistake. Watching the man get anxious, a sympathetic co-passenger tried to help him out. This co-passenger had traveled on the same train for six years and knew that just before Martunga station the train slowed down considerably to allow one to de-board.
He told the guy to de-board the train then and to keep on running or he might fall down and hurt himself. When the moment of action came the train slowed down as the co-passenger said and the man got down running at full speed. Such was the speed at which he was running that he almost got ahead of the train and the passengers in the carriages ahead thought he wanted to board the train and so helped him aboard again only for the man to tell them that they had undone what he managed with such difficulty.

We have got a songbird
trapped in one of our ribcages .
It spends it's days weaving
words into music
that stubbornly refuses to rhyme .
And that ,more often than not ,
gets lost in the cacophony of
the noises outside .
It longs to sing songs
that sound all soft and sweet
but when it clears it's throat to sing
the tune comes out flat and shrill .
But without the music
the empty silence weights down
heavy upon us .
So it continues to sing ,
hoping that one day ,
it will find someone
who chooses to sing back .
