16 hours of Journey and a LOT MORE…


It was time to go home finally😍. I have been waiting for this day from a long time. If you have ever lived in Hostel away from home, you would understand how I was feeling. No more mess food, no more irritation from the scorching heat of Summers. I cannot express that joy, that happiness that I was feeling when I was packing all my stuff.

HOME is not a place. It’s a FEELING…

I boarded my train. Thank God, it was on timeπŸ˜…. I always prefer Sleeper class rather than AC even in Summers. The feeling of that stream of wind and my long hairs dancing with it makes me feel free. Fortunately, I could manage a window seat. So, the stage was set for this 16 hrs of exhausting journey….I too was fully prepared with all my weapons to fight this battle. Which weapons, you ask? My phone, lock and loaded with all my favorite songs; my earphones and not to forget, my power bank.

I have completed less than 20% of my journey. The weather outside is trying to compliment to my songs by creating extra effects. As the sun is about to set here, an orangish tint spreads through out the sky.. Its getting cooler outside❄. Now it’s more pleasing. Ohh, it’s suddenly raining now🌧. I look at the sky trying to predict if the dark clouds are ready to cry. But, I see a clear sky🌝. Maybe it was just a small shower. Ohh, it’s lightning also⚑. As if, everyone is trying to make me feel it’s presence.. The lightning bolts were as if complimenting the beats of the songs… Suddenly I am distracted by some noise. How could that noise penetrate my noise canceling earphones ?… Anyways, my eyes try to find the source of that loud noise and I see a baby crying…. Man, he was too loud. His mother was trying to calm him trying everything she can. But he kept crying…. Seriously, today I understood how hard parenting is…. It really test your patience. The sun is about to set… I was continuously observing the baby.. His behavior was very unpredictable. At one instant he was sleeping quietly and at the next instant he was crying at the highest pitch… Isn’t our life similar? You really can say what is coming at you…One time it is all quiet and suddenly you get trapped in many problems. And you cannot ask why? This is Life…πŸ˜‡

I started this journey at 38℃. Till now I have seen all the seasons: summers, rain, thunder…. You have no option than to deal with them, fight them. Because you know in the end, there is eternal peace, joy and satisfaction…..The sun has set… Everything is very calm now. To all my science guys out there, let me state the second law of thermodynamics for you. Everything in nature has to move towards lesser Energy in order for it to happen. You need that Activation energy initially but once it crosses the barrier, you will move towards lesser energy. One way to reduce this energy is using catalysts i.e Life hacks… See, it’s so much relatable. So that’s it from my side…Time to sleep…Hope you like it πŸ™‚

  1. Aha! Such a relatable and refreshing post.
    The joy of Indian Train Rides! I’ve had so many myself so I totally relate with your situation, the weapons we need to make sure we survive through that long ride, the strange baby who keeps crying in the compartment, oh I know it all so well.

    Your description of the whether outside and the way you’ve related it all with life is amazing.

  3. Although I can’t exactly relate with that feeling of going ‘home’ (I’m a localite BTW, so pretty much every day is like that to me.), but I have a few friends who’d wholeheartedly agree with you. Plus I’m no stranger to that sweltering heat and our Indian railways, being one of those 7 million Mumbaikars who battle with both everyday. And that 2nd law of thermodynamics…. That TOTALLY went along with a couple posts of mine namely Energy and Equilibrium. Do pass them a look… I guess you’ll like them…
    Happy blogging! 😊✌️

        Warning:- I’m rather erratic when it comes to posting. So I really can’t guarantee when I’ll post next. Plus I have no idea how it’s done. (Joining another blog as a guest) πŸ˜…
