Life In A Metro

Thousands of people asleep, yet thousands awake, Somewhere it’s a dark night, somewhere it’s a festival of lights, People keep, give, and take. The sky is full of non-living flights, The roads are busy watching humans’ fights. This place never sleeps, for it is fulfilling numerous dreams. Worrying about the future, living in the present, and learning from the retro. Such is the life in a Metro.”

Hopes, dreams, success, failure, second chances, destiny, fate, and hard work are a few nouns that describe the life in a Metro. Every day is a new hope for people. A hope to get their dream job, their own apartment, the best education, necessities, luxuries, their life partners, friends and much more. Science and technology have proved to be beneficial and because of that, we have this concept of the “Metro”.

It is a dream for most of the person to live in a metro city so that he or she could fulfil his/her dreams. Opportunities here, take some people where they had never imagined to be and sometimes they walk people down.

The fun-fairs, markets are in the form of malls and clubs here, where people meet, greet, and spend time. Thousands of smiles say a number of sad stories but the smiles manage to do their jobs.

“Time and tide wait for no man”, but here the saying goes like, “trains and buses wait for nobody”. Everyone is doing their own job without intruding in anyone’s life. And the downside of it is, during any accident, we find nothing but the bystanders with their video application on.

Hundreds of broken hearts are found on the walls of the monuments, but they manage to pull their pieces together, as for them, ‘people are like buses, they come and go’. Whoever said money doesn’t buy happiness, has not lived in a city. Because people here are happy only when they get their salaries, so that they can pay rents, party, save for their future, or go shopping and in process of doing these things they forget themselves. ‘Leisure’ time in a metro city is merely a hypothetical concept.

Sometimes we feel alone even amidst a crowd, and sometimes just two or three people around us might create a whole new world. Getting a window seat is no less than an achievement for the travellers. It’s amazing how a place can shape our lives and evolve us into a new person altogether. Small incidents teach important and meaningful life lessons here. Even realisation about the importance of time hits us hard when we miss the local train by minutes. After any tragic mishap, people immediately get back to their lives and continue to live the way they used to, it is all about looking ahead and moving on.

Being a Mumbaikar gives a sense of identity to the people living here. All I can say is, life in a metro is undoubtedly different and equally difficult, but we mould ourselves accordingly and transform it into the amazing place it is.
