You can always bargain with the Coolie

Remember Iqbal from the Manmohan Desai’s blockbuster movie Coolie? This iconic character was played by Big B and showcased various tough situations that a coolie goes through. I always remember him while I am travelling and spot a coolie on the platform. These chaps know it all and at times can even act oversmart too. There are times you end up arguing with these red shirt guys but many other times you feel petty and give them few bucks more.

You can meet interesting co-passengers

If you have read Chetan Bhagat’s bestseller Two States or watched the epic Hindi film, ‘The Burning Train’ you will know what it means to share a word with the people around during your journey. There are chances that you might get to eat good food if your co-passengers are Gujaratis or Punjabis. If they are from the South then you will end up hearing everything from world politics, economy to all those high fundo techy stuff. If they are from the east or the west they are will seen engrossed in reading or music. Mere observations can be fun too.

You can fall in love or end it all

Okay, if you are one of those who are looking to find your Mr/Miss love, a train journey can help you get one. Well, that is what movies like Sathiya, DDLJ, Jab We Meet and even few others taught us. Let me get a little philosophical here to get this right. Life is a journey. Love comes to you accidental. Imagine both these thoughts meeting you at an interesting junction, literally. Hmm! Sounds like good fun, isn’t? Keep that hope up right there.

You can play antakshari or even get up to dance  

Shahrukh Khan has actually proved this through his film Chennai Express and Dil Se. In Chennai Express, he clearly made us understand that music has no language barriers. You can sing aloud and make your own tunes. In Dil Se, he actually went on the train roof to dance with a hot chic. You don’t have to that adventurous but you can something else.

I am sure after reading these few fun stuff you might giggle and want to take a train too. So, what are you waiting for? Book your tickets not on the IRCTC website though but may be via an agent and have a super train journey soon!
