Incredible India’s Rail Network

Photography by Stuti © 2013
Being an 80's kid, I have seen, experienced, and enjoyed a lot of things which millennium kids haven’t. Be it listening to songs from the cassettes, the 90’s pop music, playing on streets in the evening after school or spending long hours travelling in trains during summer holidays to reach grandparents’ place.

​That reminds me of mostly interesting, rarely shocking experiences, train travel has given me. Indian Railways have never ceased to fascinate me. During my early years to reach my granny’s place ​Har​i​dwar from Mehsana we used to first go to Palanpur then take a train to Delhi and then bus from ​ISBT, ​Delhi to Har​i​dwar. It used to be long but reaching to my grandma's embrace was always soothing.

Nonetheless, the journey used to be interesting. Ajmer's famous Rabdi and rabbits running at the dhaaba en-route Haridwar are a few things which are hard to forget; train journey is fun as well. I still remember how my mum and I used to get up first at around 4 in the morning only to watch the sun rising—that used to be the best thing during train journey including those fights over the window seat.

Need For Speed

"Need For Speed" is the mantra of today. Be it young or old, everyone has a smartphone and is on internet for some or the other reason, choices ranging from twitter to facebook to instagram to google search. These are on the go apps, use as you walk, talk, listen or watch. But what about other stuff which you rely on internet for, like downloading movies and music, do video chat etc? We have to usually sit down patiently to get the out put or sleep with internet on for the downloading stuff over night or simply curse the internet when you are to download something, courtesy bad internet (happens mostly in my case), One need super fast internet for such stuff.

I am the kid before millennium year and have seen it all, TV with only Doordarshan, then the welcoming entry of Cable, phones with long queue for making those STD calls, Dial up internet, basic mobile phones, smart phones with internet, 2G, 3G and now 4G. Did I miss anything? Don't kill me :P

Independence. Really?

We are in 69th Independence day. Ain't we? Really!?

Do we really celebrate Independence or is it just because we have to celebrate the day, kyunki saalon se aisa karte aa rahe hain!?

Are we really living in a free country, have we really got independence? I ask myself and want you all to ask yourselves!

I eat as I wish, sleep, work, travel and do whatever I like and as I please. But is that the real freedom?

Do I live in a clean country? And by clean I don't mean just the cleanliness or the #SwachBharatAbhiyan but cleanliness in principle. Clean government, clean mind of people, clean system.
Corruption 's the root cause of every second problem. Be it reservations, getting that job, not keeping our surrounding clean, fighting over wrong stuff just to satisfy our ego, walking free out of jail in spite of being a criminal, greed and most of all trying to preach others something or the other without actually following it ourselves. Yes, we do that every time, pin pointing each other, the government, the people around.
