Sting Operation!

Do you feel sleepy all the day? Do you hate people who gossip about you? Do you want to be active and alert even in a crowd?

Sting Operation!!! Now this can be possible, only if you travel in train, specifically western suburbs (ladies compartment), As you soon as you run and catch a seat for yourself, the operation starts, the bugs and the white ants, start sucking your blood, and biting you constantly, the bugs enjoy breakfast at peak hours , when the train is packed (crowded), this is again a biggest mission/stunt a common man has to accomplish everyday ,  I actually say that every person who commutes by train is brave .

Can you beat this-  we donate blood everyday to the bugs hiding in the seat, and to add to it you get to watch the wild life in the train itself for FREE! FREE! FREE!, like the cockroaches in all shapes and sizes, white and burgundy,  with stripes(zebra cockroach :), mouse, mini rats, baby lizards, and the most attractive, entertaining and amazing part is, the ladies compartment, you'll forget radio FM and every entertainment channel, it is full of fights, sweat, shouts, yells and more…(my practical experience :).

When the train arrives the destination(platform), you see people struggling to get out from the train to breathe fresh air and get rid of the REWARDS THEY GET FOR THEIR BRAVERY

 The list of rewards are as follows-

  • Free wildlife entertainment (baby snake is a special attraction);-)- no maintenance
  • Bugs making life miserable
  • You can’t beat the fragrance of sweating underarms.
  • Eunuchs bless you on daily basis only if you pay them
  • Free entertainment, when women fight like cats
  • Mini shopping’ mall (I hope you guessed it)
  • Mini beauty parlour
  • Group discussions (Gossips/ Bitching)
  • Bhajans and Movie songs - Voice of India / Sa Re Gama will get  less sponsors if they see the, versatile singers in the ladies compartment.

And most important thing – Death is so easy , any day a tiny bomb can burst like a cracker in any compartment and you’ll have to say goodbye to life. (that means train also controls population)

I know this was a bit harsh, just laugh it off , overcome your fear and sorrow … Chill! This is  Mumbai Train Life !!…
Sting Operation to be contd...

Work from Home Revolution

I stay at Vasai and my work place is Masjid Bunder, that’s what says, Shilpa one of the fellow commuters, she takes nearly 4 hrs, to commute from home to work and back. This is what “n” number of people say- but is there a solution for this? Why can’t the work place be closer to your home or the best is why can’t you work from home, got’ to be a very stupid question, but we really need to think on this, cos’ if we have a way out, there will be so many things automatically aligned and protected-

•    Like no crowded trains
•    No getting up early and reaching late
•    No skipping breakfast to reach on time to catch the train
•    No Bomb scare in a crowded train…ha ha ha(sounds funny but, very natural today)
•    No pressure of commuting so far and also reaching on time
•    You need not keep a full time maid
•    Socialite
•    Enjoy with your family, cos’ all you earn is to keep your family happy
•    Most important you’ll not spend more than half of your life in train

There are so many women like Shilpa who wants to spend a relaxed life, without quitting work, it might seem just nothing or minor for women who are rich and well off, but it does make a difference to a middle class women, who has to contribute to her household financials, I wish there is a way out someday….A revolution that might change lives and bring smiles!
