It was almost silent indoors, most of the people were busy with their smartphones and laptops. Some not so busy, stuffed earphones and slept in solace. Some hungry, chubby kids randomly peeped through the passage, whether refreshments were being served, and probably their wishes were granted.
Two lean men,one with stacked trays of Refreshment and the other with a carton of RailNeer Water bottles marked their entry into the compartment, with a screeching sound of the sliding door. They began serving.
The coach was not much occupied and there were many vacant seats. One of the kids was constantly changing his position between two vacant seats.
Children enjoy a lot in the trains!
Kushagra was constantly looking outside the window and pondering over something that had it on his nerves since long.
“Excuse me Sir! Here’s your refreshment! Ma’am here’s your”, interrupted the attendant.
” ya! Sure. Thank you!”, replied Pratishtha.
Disconnected from all these stuff, Kushagra kept pondering on the outside world that moved past his eyes.Industrial setups on the outskirts of Delhi, Roads, traffic jam, Cart pullers drained with sweat, Delhi Metro making strides, Local trains and people hanging on the doors. He could see much, but all he was able to comprehend was that none was perfectly happy in his/her world, still they were upto their daily routine and the rules setup by the society.
“Kush!! Hey!!..”, she patted on his shoulders.
“Hn.anh..”,He jolted, as if he suddenly woke up from a dream!
“Have some refreshments!”, she said offering him the sandwich.
“No, I don’t feel like having them”,he dejected.
” oh! Have some please. You did not have your dinner last night! Did you?”, she pleaded.
‘Zummm..Tagad… Tagad …Tagad tagad..’,Suddenly a train passed on the adjacent track in opposite direction. The previous night cascaded infront of his eyes.
As he unlocked the door, he could find a pamphlet lying on the doormat.

He sat down on the chair. Kept his bag aside, threw his shoes in disgust, first the right one followed by the left one.
Instances from office room echoed again and again..
“How could you be so careless! You’re a senior executive!Damn It!
Isn’t the company is paying you fucking enough to get your ass off the shit!!!
You’re a bloody looser!! Get the fucking out of my sight”
“Chuymm..”, the phone tore apart the silence, announcing new conversations.
He swiped the Notification bar.
‘Time for Clash of the Rules!!’, adressed the caption of the selfie. It was Pratishtha.
“Scee…chtch”, the train stopped with a jolt.
There was commotion in the compartment. A bulky lady entered the coach with an even big Luggage. She struggled hard to fit into the seat adjacent to the third row.
“Have a look! This is the journey map.I have created it myself.”, Pratishtha said handing over the iPad to Kushagra.
It was the map of India dotting locations with a green dot starting from Delhi,moving along Uttarakhand, UP, Bihar, West Bengal, Assam, Arunachal, Meghalaya, Orrisa, Andhra pradesh, Tamil Nadu terminating partially at Kanyakumari, thereafter a dotted line joined back Kanyakumari to Delhi via Kerala, Karnataka, Goa, Mumbai ,Ahmedabad, Bhopal, Kota, Jaipur.
“That’s huge”, Said Kushagra, bringing a smile on his face.” And you, were going to do that alone?”
“You haven’t changed a bit Pari”, he said hitting her head softly.
The train started with a jerk!!
“Not at all Kush!!😊😇😎☺Should I Pretend to do so?Hahaha..”, jolted Pratishtha……….(To be continued)
