Kill yash chopra burn karan johar and behead subash ghai for playing with our emotions, I m sure many of u out there must be having this sweet little fantasy of meeting a beautiful lady in a train. Kabhi nazron ka ladna, kahin hansi ka jharna kahin aakhon ka machalna to kabhi kahin hasi ka jharna to kabhi aanchal ka phisalna.
But fantasies like these live only in one’s dream. Still train journeys are fun. But after 21 years of experiencing the phenomena knwn as Indian Railways I have seen a lot of fairer sex. Since on my way to Indore I had jus one novel One Night @CC (chetan bhagat messed up this one royally) and a boring crowd arnd me so I tried to categorize the kind of fairer sex I came across in a train …. (The age range is just 17-28..kyunki I care for only these )
1) Life is an Honeymoon . the happily NEWLY wed couple dreaming abt her spouse’s new car new house and how life is going to be a cake coated with cream of promises, sugar coated with sweet sex, double layered icing of affection and a cherry on the top of awesomeness. This is the most happening pair in the arena, one can spend hours looking at them. The husband tries to impress the wife with each and every move.They will talk in eye language and the timely giggle will make u wonder wat a beautiful institution this marriage is. But if u want to get the real picture just look arnd a bit and u can spot a middle aged couple an ur myths will be clarified.
2) K-channel-Young beautiful or not so beautiful accompanied with their families. Mostly the fathers are the biggest trouble, They think every second guy who passes by his daughter is a threat to her virginity or is looking a future wife in his daughter. The daughter is normally the sati savitri version of aaj ki naari .
3) Ma beti— If the father is missing and u get a chance to meet the mommy ….only god can save u .”Beta kahan ja rahe ho?” “Bombay mein kya karte ho?” Aur agar kahin beti bhi mataji jaisi hui tab to kya kehne, Moreover many times they start the conversation with BHAIYA …….now u tell me kissi bhi bande ka kya interest reh jata hai.?
.U can survive a dengue fever but surviving the dual channel All India Radio is tougher.
4) Purani jeans aur guitar the college grp females . Its easier to get into the grp mostly these guys will b playin antakshari.The older aunties arnd will be cursing ..aaj kal ke bachche to bas. The guys trying hard to outshine each other and the girls absorbing the chaos arnd them, In my opinion this is the closest one can get to reach the yash chopra fantasy but in my 21 year career I just came across one such grp once n the crwd was awful L
5 Akeli nari …Mostly scared and extra concious and if u are blessed with one or two unclejis in the compartment u got a package deal. Ur every move is monitored and is under the public radar and even a simple decent chat can be considered as ur dating move.
I knw I missed out many other females but who cares coz I m sure none of the female I came across would be rem me …nor they will be reading this …Now I m traveling tomorrow to bhilai frm Bhopal ..chhattisgarh express once again riding high on the dream wagon but I knw once again my heart will break n my dreams will shatter still happy journey…..
