As few of you might be knowing that Ahmedabad is my native place and Mumbai is the city where I work .. It takes hardly 7 hours to reach Ahmedabd from Mumbai by train .. So I go to Ahmedabad almost every alternate weekend .. To travel by train is quite an economical and comfortable option than the flight .. I always take an overnight train on Friday night and reach Ahmedabad early morning of Saturday and I take Sunday night train to Mumbai and reach Monday early morning .. Best timings for any office-goer ..

I have travelled in almost every class of a train be it sleeper class, three-tier AC, two-tier AC or even First/Executive class AC .. Every class has its own charm and appeal .. Every class is fun in itself .. So let me take you through every class that I have travelled in and will share some of my experiences ..

  • Sleeper Class : This class mainly involves lower-middle and middle class families .. You will find people around you very friendly and approachable .. They will also help you in settling down and to put your luggage underneath your seat .. After few initial minutes, no matter what you are wearing or how you are looking or how weird you are behaving, some one from somewhere will surely ask you about your name, about your work and even about your family .. You will come to know about each and every passenger’s family and work details withing few minutes .. People around you will offer you food, chocolates , sweets etc with a very friendly smile .. The whole of your compartment will turn into discussion forum with topics varies from politics to bollywood to cricket to sensex to recession .. If the talks are getting interesting then other compartment people will join you too .. All these chatting and gossiping will last till late night with smiles and loud laughs all around .. It’s a very nice experience even though by comfort and amenity wise, this class is at the bottom .. But those constant chatters will overtake and overshadow your discomfort for sure .. It’s fun to travel by this class ..
  • Three-tier AC : This class mainly involved middle-class and upper-middle class families .. After few minutes of your boarding of train, you will settle down and will exchange smiles with your other compartment mates .. If you are lucky and if you have got a friendly passengers, someone will ask you about your name and work .. But things wont stretch to your family and business details .. After some basic talks, everyone will go to sleep and there will be a total calm and peace in the whole compartment .. IF you really want a comfort and good value for your money, this class is the best one to travel .. Very economical though very comfortable ..

  • Two-tier AC: This class involves mainly upper-middle-class and rich class families .. Once you board the train and will settle down in your seat, I don’t think anybody will ask you something or anyone will even exchange a smile with you .. Most of them are usually reading novels or talking on phones .. Once the TC checks the tickets, everyone will go into the lands of dream and there will be a complete peace with lights off and curtains close in no time .. you will even not remember the faces with whom you travelled in an overnight train .. Sometimes it becomes depressing if you are not feeling sleepy but comfort-wise this class is quite good ..

These are my experiences of each class .. I found that people with less money are far more friendly, smiling and approachable than the people with more money .. People with less money have so many things to talk about than the people with more money .. I don’t know why this happens but you might have also experienced the same .. I don’t remember any of the instances when I had talked to the person sitting beside me in the flight or even he/she has exchanged any smile with me whatsoever .. I may be grossly wrong in quoting this but this is what I have felt all these years ..

When Congress said that Ram Setu does not exist and Lord Ram – one of the prominent gods of Hinduism – was never born, people of India believed it and gave Congress a solid victory in the elections .. When same congress named the Bandra-Worli Sea-Link as Rajiv Gandhi Setu, people clapped, clapped and clapped ..

When Congress stated that the Muslims of India have the first right on every property which belongs to Indian Government, people of India felt that India is really a secular country and gave congress whole bunch of votes ..

When Varun Gandhi was charged under NSA for his remarks on Muslims and for ‘Proud Being a Hindu‘ comment, people of India agreed to this heinous and lethal verdict of Mayawati .. But when Omar Abdullah had made “Proud to be a Muslim” speech during the Confidence vote in Parliament people of India praised and congratulated him for the his secularism and modesty .. When A R Antulay openly spoke that Hemant Karkare was killed by Hindus and not by 26/11 terrorists and even though he lost the election, he has been made a cabinet minister in UPA government, people of India thought this as a very secular and modest step ..

When Congress stated that ethnic cleansing of thousands of Hindu Kashmiri Pandits from Kashmir valley is a nightmare and 1984 anti-sikh riots when 5000+ sikhs were butchered by congressmen is a past, people of India agreed to it .. But when same Congress always recalls the ghosts of Godhra Riots and calls it a national shame, people of India believed that and gave Congress a landslide victory ..

When Congress puts forward Rahul Gandhi, Sachin Pilot, Jyotiraditya Scindia as youth-representatives of India, people of India believed that and they voted for them .. But people of India do not even think logically that they are not the face of youth that India wants instead they are just the bunch of politicians’ kids who do not have to offer anything except their birth-surname ..

When the largest democracy of this world has a grand old ruling party which itself does not believe in democracy and it’s being run (ruined) by one or two families, people of India still vote for them and lets them enjoy family dynasty ..

When some of my friends are ashamed of being a Hindu just because a temple near their place is having a Sat Sang Session and is chanting prayers/bhajans from loudspeaker .. They think that it’s a noise pollution .. But the same bunch feels very holy and pious when Muslims offer their Namaz five times a day – everyday on loud speakers in every mosque all over India stating that ‘There is no GOD except Allah!!’ ..

Aren’t we great ????
