Inside a crowded train...

Okay.. So this one is going to be really short and quick...

I went to Delhi yesterday and this particular incident amazed me and really caught my attention.
i was traveling in the Delhi metro which amazingly enough, seems to have become pretty popular amongst the Delhi people as a consequence of which the thing has become as nearly as crowded as a Mumbai local train .I was lucky to get a seat as i boarded the train from a station with fairly thin population. but as we moved, the train became heavily crowded.
amongst the crowd, there was a very thin lady carrying an year old child in her arms. she was standing a few meters away from me as there was no seat left for her her member of her family. what surprised me most was not one single man stood up to offer the seat to her, not even that man who was shamelessly sitting on the seat reserved for women right behind her.
one explanation for this might be that everybody was tired from the day's work or something. but the fact is, how much ever you may try to justify this behavior, no explanation will be good enough.ways, after 5 minutes or so, a girl in her teenage, got up and offered her seat to the lady who very humbly and gratefully took it.
my point is, what happened yesterday was the proof of the fact that indian men have lost all chivalry.
Although, i am still happy to know that indian women still haven't lost theirs!!

P.S:- i deeply regret the fact that i did not have enough courage to go up to her and let her have my seat. but that girl in the metro did teach me courage...

For today...

I have to write today as i consider it my moral responsibility. Jee result is out and many of my friends are exited, disappointed, happy and depressed. A day of mixed emotions no doubt.
For those who are happy, congratulations... you got the fruit of your hard work but For those who are sad, i just wanna say, this isn't the end. Generally, what we consider the end of the road, is actually just a corner, and if you have the courage to turn around, you'll see something so much better...

here is one of my favourite songs...
its called "the heart of life" by John Mayer
i hope you like it...

I hate to see you cry
Lying there in that position
There's things you need to hear
So turn off your tears and listen

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

You know it's nothing new
Bad news never had good timing
Then the circle of your friends
Will defend the silver lining

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
No, it won't all go the way it should
But I know the heart of life is good

Pain throws your heart to the ground
Love turns the whole thing around
Fear is a friend who's misunderstood
But I know the heart of life is good

I know it's good...

this is all i wanna say
trust god, his better plans and life
none of them will ever deceive. trust me...
life is good and i know it will all work out. i know...

Your song...

My hands strike the keys on the keyboard for inspiration. i want to write, but i have no clue what i want to write about...
probably a poem is just perfect for this occasion...

i heard it first so long ago
when i was sad, you hummed it in my ear
its the song that is still a comfort
after all these tiring years

i have fought endless battles and wars
i won some of them, and some i lost
but on the battleground, amongst the cries
the happy song demolished the holocaust

be it love or agonizing hatred
a tear for loss in love or war
some breeze dried my every tear
that breath that sounded just like your song

and now and then as i lie down
tired or broken from a day too long
as i close my drooping eyes, somewhere
your sweet voice still hums that song...
