Sweet little kids in local trains

Or should I say little bundles of joy! The other day I was returning home after a hectic schedule. It was around 5 in the evening when I boarded a local train from CST station to reach Vashi. I was so tired, I just wanted the time to fly by. And then, a toddler comfortably seated in his mom’s arms beside me, started playing with my hands. He would smile and wave at me, touch my palms with his tiny fingers and cutely smile when I’d tickle him. He even offered me a pink handkerchief he was holding as a toy. He so made my day! I now wanted the time to slow down ;)

A few stations before Vashi, I decided to stand by the door and enjoy the breeze. And then, another toddler seated right behind me started tickling me! As if the previous one told him to do so after I tickled him. You should have seen the child’s naughty smile whenever I turned to look at him.

These little kids surely make our day with their cute and innocent acts and make us wonder why are we so stressed out in life! What do you think?

It can't get simpler than this! Beautifully written! Every Mumbai localite does experience this child's innocence that actually helps him forget his stress for the moment while traveling in trains, buses, etc.
Anuradha, I have boarded your train with a smile (ticket)...I am sure this journey would be far more better than the Indian Railways :P
