In mumbai I would prefer crowded train than a AC Car, in order to get rid of Traffic. It is not only the time saver, one can get a free unusual entertainment too. Everyday I tend to spend 2 hrs travelling in train.
To get into train during peak hours one should be an expert gymnast. Some day back I was gluing at the coming train. Before the train come to halt, people started throwing their self inside the train. Any seasoned peak hour traveler knows how it is to grab the seat so I never make an attempt to get a seat myself. I feel comfortable standing.
To my surprise there was a whole section empty. I thanked my stars & move to the vacant window seat. My enthu melted within a second when a woman stopped me in between. As I turned to her, she screwed up her face & pointed at the seat. Some pathetic creature had emptied the content of their bowels on the seat. Yuck Yuck.
I cursed for my dumb attitude, ignorance, foolishness that how could I atleast dream of getting a window seat while other souls are hanging theirselves. I haven't learnt yet the logic of living hehehe.
I stood at the other corner, cursing myself. But within moment it turned out to be an entertaining business. I kept watching the drama.
At every station, people jumped to catch that seat. Every eye want to reach there fast. The lady who saved me had a full time job of rescuing people from that Shit. People took their kerchiefs pressing their nose sandwiching their body against each other.
Some people gave advice to meet Railway staff to clean the stuff, some came up with pulling chain. Others dint seemed bothered, as long as train reach the destination at time.
Moral of the story :- crowded train + vacant space = sure Shit Shit
