An ‘incident’ happened with me that mortified me besides being left at loss.
Through metro, I was coming back to home from office.
On the 5th day of my Job, i was brutally became weary by physically as well as mentally. I decided to sit on the floor seeing people sitting on it. Usually, people not finding seat, decide to sit at the edge of metro, Same I did.
But, on that day, a man, around 35, approached us saying “you people should not sit on floor as its violence of rule”. In my mind, i was thinking, i am a journalist and violating the rule, however turned to deaf ear and kept sitting on floor and other 2 people followed me.
Again, he said with modesty and twinkle, “you are young at heart, mature and i perceive, if not sitting on floor will be tolerated by you and will not be laborious”. While replying, I asked him, “why are proper facilities not available in metro if metro can hike fare 2 times in 2 months” ?. Then, he turned his face towards me with curiosity of giving an answer, ohhh! Hhahaha ! now,” you question on the system, that’s the problem everyone points out”, he said.
In front of me, the man sitting on floor, put earphone into his ears and and the other one, sitting beside me, put his face on his palm while sitting cris- crox on the floor.
All the people around us had focus on his saying. A girl sitting on seat of my left hand, looked interestingly in the matter. Others were laughing at his foolishness and efforts.
After 10 second, again he said, ‘please stand up’ and then i said, i would stand up when my stop would come and although 2 stations were left and I became stubborn. So far, he was alone. And then, a voice came from my right hand, we all turned our face and saw an old man saying, “that man (who wanted us to stand up) is saying right”. I stood up as soon as my station came.
Since that day, when i enter in metro, i remember that moment. Nostalgia moment !
It surprises me as that man had courage to correct us. Improvement commences from you
