Life gets better when you don’t anticipate.
At the night of @14-04-18, I went to a nearby restaurant. I’ve ordered my meals and waited for some time. As I couldn’t resist, my enthusiastic hands took control over a pen and began to write about the trek,
To catch the 4:15 train to Kochi, I started at 3:30 in the morning. I finally got on the train at 4:50 and had a reception with few sleepy pairs of eyes on the seventh compartment. I’ve decided to take a short nap until the sun peeks from the east. As I finally got to my seat, I saw a bag beside which stood a girl along with her male companion. While I was looking at my seat number on my phone, he said that she wants a lower berth.
After few minutes, I’ve settled on the upper berth. As the train started to move, her male companion got off the train. I couldn’t identify faces at that time. After half-an-hour, I began to peek if there was any sign of sun from the east for every ten minutes.
I finally got the glimpse of the ray touching the train,
As I was replaying the tapes, I saw the face of the girl in golden ray. I asked myself,
Is it me or she looks really beautiful..?
I must confess that I was a little carried away. It might be that the fact that I acknowledged the truth of short life from the late trek on the previous day.
Life is fragile without experiences.
I started the conversation and it took for over two hours of the ride. She is awesome when it comes to talking to a stranger. I thought that if I get a yes/no answer, I would cease any attempt to talk further. She loved the idea of traveling and in fact, she gave some names from her bucket list.
When topic shifted to movies, she took my travel journal and wrote
about twenty movies.
She said that she was doing her PG in Chennai and was returning to her hometown. I thought to give her a novel. When I asked her about the author, she said that she didn’t like her writings.
We exchanged numbers and she got off at her station.
