A birthday party without a chhuk chhuk human rail with all the screaming excited children ready to hop on it? Yawn! so boring. Our next Hindi poem ‘Chhuk Chhuk Rail’ describes the essence of the train journey and Rail gaadi.
In the times of superfast trains with sealed windows. Spanky clean stainless steel interiors. Push Back chairs with warm blankets, in case the air conditioning was too much to bear.
We still reminisce our chhuk chhuk rail gaadi from its golden days and show our children the loud call for “Chana jor garam waala” selling the best snack you could have eaten. Or your mom waiting for the “chai waala” so she could have a sip of sweet milky goodness.
The Golden Journey
There are numerous memories involved with our good old rail and our attachment with it doesn’t stop. From the TT coming in his black uniform and waking us up in the middle of the night to check on the tickets to the never-ending stream of marketers selling toys, chips, drinks and other such items which enticed children to no end. It was an entertainment in itself. Big families travelling in chuk chuk rail, singing movie songs, poems and rhymes to keep themselves busy was a common sight.
