Today, When i was travelling in the delhi metro, after coming from the office. I had an amazing experience which brings the plight of people living in Delhi-Ncr in respect of the long going problem from almost a decade – TRAFFIC JAM.
Two friends, Appu and Monu who have just boarded the Delhi Metro from Rajiv Chowk Metro Station to Huda City Centre Station, were just trying to penetrate into the crowd standing on both sides of the gate. Even the working AC in the metro does not let them get rid of sweating, it was felt that to board a railway train from Delhi to any other state is far easier than to board metro to travel within Delhi – NCR. After the entire struggle, they were finally able to find a gap to stand.
Finally, after taking deep breathe, Appu asked Monu” Bhai kya haal hai delhi ka, hum dono school se college aa gye aur ab job bhi lag gayi but yeh delhi ka jam, waisa ka waisa” Don’t we have any solution to this? Or is it just going to grow within passage of time?
After glancing at people around, Monu after smiling replied “ Bhai jitna Sarkar bolti hai utna karti nahi aur jitna traffic hai utna kiya nhi jata”.
As I was standing near both of them, I could not resist myself and become a part of the conversation. I smiled and said that I, being a car owner, don’t want to drive my car and prefer to be in the scuffle of metro just to reach home on time and I believe many people in the metro are here because of this only. Both of them looked at me with a shocking expression. What? They spoke together.
