Life in a METRO

It’s a battle of survival
From the beggar child who knocks at your window to the CEO of an MNC; everyone fends only for themselves. I do too.

Even the shortest journey’s the longest
Yeah believe it I could go from the north to the south by a vehicle in 2 hours flat! But a simple 54 kms journey will take you no less than 1 1/2 hour and that too by train.

It’s a battle against time
No one’s got the time. The word here is ‘Jaldi’ or just stand out of my way should I push you reaching my deadline.

A culture clash
There are people from walks of life! It’s India in a capsule. Amazing but true.

Love blossoms around every corner
It’s amazing but true. Look around you see couples blissfully unaware. No matter what society implies, loves got to do what love has got to do. How else you tell me?

The work never ends
Call it corporization or wanting to make money, at the end of the day everyone’s underpaid.

Home is where the work is
For all those who come to the metro, work becomes home. It’s here that you find the most comfort. Going back to your dwelling place is a pain.

Weekends are party-time
No matter what you do, the weekends are known to be stress busters. Party all night! Shaking that booty is all that matters!

The movies are where the action is
We are talking about action on screen. Not like-wise. No doubt the multiplexes rip you off but it offers some solace for a few hours and catch the latest of them blockbusters.

Public transport is the only way to get around
Come on face it! We all would like to be driven around in private cars, but everyone’s a struggler in the big city. Public transport is a blessing in disguise.

It’s the best place to be
No matter what people say! No mater the cursing! No matter the pollution!
The blur of people, the blur of life… here’s where everyone wants to be!

  1. METRO derived from the word METROPOLIS which means
    1. any large, busy city.
    2. the chief, and sometimes capital, city of a country, state, or region.
    3. a central or principal place, as of some activity: the music metropolis of France.
    4. the mother city or parent state of a colony, esp. of an ancient Greek colony.
    5. the chief see of an ecclesiastical province.

    but then

    Everyone everywhere fights this battle of survival too

    Life's shortest journeys are often the longest

    To battle against time is to gather the foam the waves bring in

    Cultures exist to clash... crumble ... and create new worlds again

    Blossoms wither stays

    .... one thing u missed
    Ppl never agree with what the other thinks :-)
