Paper Boat presents, My First Train Ride

Paper Boat presents, My First Train Ride

I’ll read this new comic from cover to cover And then even I’ll tell Nani a few stories, this summer. The wobbling bogie made my legs shiver, Is it hatching a plan to make me fall over? I overcame my fears of the bogie and found my feet, And followed some unknown faces back to my seat. In the course of a journey, so many people came together, Even tracks travelling alongside became friends with each other. I can hear it slowly start towards our destination, Why is the train leaving Papa behind at the station? Trying to fill my pillow, I got tired, While dad’s filled up more than required. The half-filled pillow woke me up in middle of the night, Whether I should climb down backwards or forwards, I couldn’t decide. How far is this moon going to travel without a ticket? Like this, it will also end up paying granny’s house a visit. I asked her name and noted down her address, But I forgot to ask what her favourite colour was. Some were sleeping, some were sitting, Some were sprawled, some were standing, Didn’t matter how much room the train had, It had a big heart to accommodate everyone.

  5. Every line was like a drop into the past!!! Sheer nostalgia rolling down my mind!!! SO simplistic and yet so touching (I never thought i would be using this adjective for myself ever).
    Tinkle(the 100 odd I still have from train journey's -the only time I bought those ), the pillow, the shaky washrooms, getting down from the upper berth and ofcourse the innocent crushes we had on those long train journeys whom we never met again ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Really Heart touching.. i am grown up now started earning I take flight, AC coaches for traveling but after watching this video I realised those days of 90s when i ws a kid and used to travel by train in sleeper coaches were the real days of fun. miss those days.

  7. Tears trickled down the cheeks, OMG that was soo meee.. Cud relate to everything from throwing coins into rivers to early morning waking up to get down. Wonderful days without any laptops, mobiles just waiting for samosa walaย and kheera wala,ย chips and cakes wale pantry k bhaiya…and rest enjoying talking with people around… Incredible Indian Railways and India.
