Now off to Yuvan’s first Train journey in India…
For my non-Indian readers …Indian railways is the world’s largest rail Transport…n v have long distance trains that cover almost every part of India apart from the Metro Rails in the major cities..
So Instead of a flight which wd have been only 30 mts , i chose to take the train which was 8 hrs. from Chennai where my fren’s wedding was to my hometown Coimbatore..,cos I wanted Yuv to get the feel of it..as well itz been long since i travelled by a train..that too travelling along with my mom n brother in a day train chit chatting all 8 hrs is a Bonus for me…
Yuv co-operated well rt from gettin up early as 4.00 am n going to the station..he enjoyed every bit of his train journey..playing with my brother..talking with the fellow passengers…looking around..enjoying the trains “thud-thud..” n sleeping for a while in my bro’s lap..trying to talk a lot with my mom n what not??
he was not interested in anything that was sold inside the train excpet when a seller came with a bunch of books..i had already made my mind to buy a few before Yuv asked for..as i love those books esp cookery books … but to my disappointment there were no cookery books..but all to take fro Yuv!!
he jus loved all those.. n to my surprise started reading n telling my co-passengers what each one was pointing to each picture he knew..
He became a famous lil pot inside the whole compartment!!!
he learnt few new words ..like “mango..”etc
when we had to get down finally at Coimbatore..he luvingly bade good bye to all n everyone missed him..sure Yuvan wd have too!
Not to mention i enjoyed every bit of journey with my mom,brother n My Lil Yuvan!
