some days ( or even months ) back , i went through emotions of happiness and sadness . i had tears in my eyes which i was able to hide and also some reality check about life. I would like to share with you.
while doing railfanning at gadj stn , i met a old person 70-80 years age who came and sat on bench near me . he asked me where are you going ? I told him im just watching trains . i asked him same , he told "bas
naukri se retire hain , ghoomne aa jate hain , bahut acha timepass hota hai". I saw him , sometimes he was doing fun with small children who came with parents waiting for train , sometime guiding others about train
this was happy and sad moment both for me at once , life is so challenging that we have to fight at every step. This person is at a retired age and to remove his boredom he come station. i always thought of railfanning as a passion which would stay with me forever. In future god knows what will happen , may be i become so rich that i have no time to surf iri , or maybe i become so poor that i dont have money to buy laptop or internet conn to surf iri.....but trains will continue and so does my passion to see them even when iam 90 years old and walk using a walking stick :)

How far you go in life depends on your being tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and strong. Because someday in your life you will have been all of these.
