THE METRO STATION WILL BE VERY NEAR

THE METRO STATION WILL BE VERY NEAR

Every day I go for a walk in the garden in front of our house, here In Delhi. The end of the walk is near the Metro Station still under construction. I do not know when it will be ready . It is near the Dussera maidan where the effigy of Ravan will be burnt in October.

We can just walk to the Station

At the end of the walk , I buy a tender coconut  for my wife ; It is full of the sweet water , with no kernel!

SNAPS FROM MY LIFE-‘welcome’

SNAPS FROM MY LIFE-‘welcome’

I had gone to the Municipal Office to sell books . The staff there did not know English- ‘give us Hindi books’ , they said. Still I was able to sell some ten books.

To return home , I went to the nearest Metro Station which is named WELCOME. There, the passengers told me to go to Kashmiri Gate and then come down to the ‘yellow line’ The station there is a four storeyed bulding . The ground floor is underground where I must board the train. Seeing my confusion a young man held my hand and took me along the escalators . He sat beside me , up to ‘Rajive Chauk’ I thanked him and gave him a book. “You can contact me ; my phone number is given on the back side.”

Thus we departed as friends.
