Not so smart but surely journey to remember.

I boarded the train from Thane to Ratnagiri and there was one Bengali couple traveling to Goa for holidays. Also there was one senior couple Mr and Mrs Mehra also going to Goa. There was also another guy sitting in the same compartment.

Mr. Arup Chakravarthy along with his wife and son Shriroop were traveling and both mom and dad were encouraging their son to build the conversation with us.

To my surprise Shriroop in entire 8 hours or so never asked for smart phone to his parents. Rather he was busy talking to us and enjoying train journey.

This is rare to watch these days. The result of Shriroop's effort was that I just answered the couple of calls and not used the phone otherwise.

We discussed on various topics like the old and new serials, western ghat and places to visit and many other and so although train got delayed by some time we were not minding that.

Almost at the time of my getting of train both families asked for tea and actually both want to pay for each other. I felt really nice to see this bonding in such a short trip.

The main reason I think was none of us were glued to their phones or any personal thing. As mentioned above there was another guy who hardly interacted with us was busy listening to music also he was getting continuous calls.

It was nice when Mr. Arup with his son and Mr. Mehra got down with me to see me off. And at that time numbers got exchanged.

Wish the same happens in every journey.
