Good Morning, Good Day

Just the kind of the beginning of the day you never want. Through with the morning habit of brushing the teeth and the early morning cup of tea on the Guwahati-Delhi Rajdhani Express - nature calls. After pushing numerous bolted toilet doors, I was relieved to finally find one unbolted one. Only to discover that some uncle or aunt (couldn't decipher the sex in the split second) hadn't bothered to properly bolt the door, while on their early morning downloading.

This invariably happens to me once in every train journey that I undertake (Seen a lot of bare bottoms). I on my part always take that extra caution in keeping the doors secured before going down to do my job.

Whether the door's locked or not, I always knock first to be sure.

It's good to have you back, Soumyadip. Warm welcome!

Hello friend,
Read your humourous post :)) Good writing.. yes, that happens a lot in a train journey, especially in an Indian railway run tran I guess :)). Do we have to take it in a lighter vain, laugh it out or do we have to think behind it, if there is anything wrong in our psyche per se?
Cheers,
Venkat
