"IF I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE TICKET,
I WOULDN'T HAVE CAUGHT THE TRAIN" :)
it is well said that life is full of unexpected things. In an motivational video by Ben Lionel Scott on you tube I've listened hundreds of times that life gives us what we want. Also, the great writer, Mr. Paulo Coelho have said in his international bestseller fable named "THE ALCHEMIST" that " when you want something, all the universe conspire in helping you to achieve it."
I was in the middle on fable "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari" by Robin Sharma, I was like I was up above the summit of the sky and the chasm of the ocean too. I was deeply feeling his words that filled me with strong enthusiasm and touch the core of my soul. NOW, I was more stronger than I was, more resilient too. I started laughing out loud without any reason. I did not need a reason to laugh. I was feeling the changes in me. Really, there was an inevitable, strong but natural, force attracting me towards it or may be I was attracting towards that.
I don't know what was that but I'm writing this because this is the time, THE RIGHT NOW, I can write or let it slip. But I can't go away from this force and the feeling too. So I'm penning it down, now.
It was late that night about 1:30. I usually went off to sleep at 11. But I was still awoke and was talking to a girl. It is a natural tendency of boys fascinating towards girls. I need to catch the train in morning at 08:40 from Sarai Rohilla railway station for Mohindergarh, my hometown. But I was still enjoying talking to her. Finally she said I want to sleep and I let her sleep because I also wanted to sleep. I put an alarm of 7 and slept.
The alarm was going off and I woke up in agile. I got fresh, brushed the teeth, took the bag on shoulder, locked the room and finally got out of the flat. On the way, I took out my phone and found it was already 7:25. I had a fear of missing the train in my mind but my intuition was so strong that I knew that I wouldn't let the train went off without boarding me in. I reached the metro station at about 7:35 and got the metro anon. I changed the metro from Rajeev Chowk and from Kashmiri gate too. But it was misfortune that I got confused between Shastri Nagar and Shastri park metro station and the metro took me to the Shastri park instead of Shastri Nagar. I asked someone the way of railway station and he assured me that I got confuse between the names and I need to go back now. That splendid my mind with the fear of missing the train.But my intuition did not let rule that fear over me. And finally I reached Shastri Nagar metro station and deboard from metro station and checked the time that it was 8:32. The railway station was about 2 KM away from there and I did not find a single auto rickshaw there, not a single one. Then I decided to go with a rickshaw. I was thudding down my phone over my wrist on the way and finally I managed to reach the station at 8:38. I thanked God from my intuition.
I rushed in the ticket counter and found that there was a huge line on the counter and meanwhile the speaker at the station announced that "the train no. this this that from Delhi Sarai Rohilla to Bikaner is going to leave from platform no. 4." What a shit?
It was the time I have to decide whether I should should take the ticket or not. In my subconscious, there was a thing, from the past experiences, that it's super fast train and nobody would come to check the tickets on a general coach. I've gone many times through the same route and the same train and I never found any ticket checker, not a single time. So i decided to not to take the ticket. This happened within a fraction of time.
I had no fear of anything and I was happy that my intuition was right and caught the train. Then I realized that I'm hearing a strong horn and found that the train started moving. The train was 4 platform away from me and I needed to go by the over bridge. I ran as fast as I can and finally got in the train. I was inhaling deeply and smiling too because finally I was in train and luckily I got a seat too. Before my breathe got normal, the train's speed was on its peak.
On the way, I wanted to read the novel as I always carry something to read on a journey. But there was a group of two girls and a boy who was directing and disturbing too to concentrate me on the novel. I laughed on the silly things they were talking about the college life and functions. But then he said that, in society, men must dominate women and should take the decision for women. He also said that it is written in Vedas and Purana like Geeta and Mahabharata. I wanted to interrupt but i let it be. I don't wanted to get involved. I just thought that, " did he ever read a single religion book? " And i started looking out of the window. After some time, the train was at Rewari station.
As I did not eat anything since morning, I decided to take sips of tea and I got one. After a few minutes the train started moving again. This time I was free to read my novel as the group was not there. It was about an hour away from my hometown, I was totally involved in the novel and then I heard a loud voice that changed my mind. YES, there were ticket checkers in the coach and they were arguing with a family about the tickets. Whatever they were doing with the family, my mid skip that thing and I thought, I did not have the ticket, what should I do?
As from the past experience of one of my friend that he told me once that he got stuck in same situation and he used washroom to escape from the ticket checkers. An uncle was sitting besides me and I asked him that I did not have any ticket. what should I do? He also suggested the same thing to go to washroom. I, then, decided to go to washroom. I thought to go on the same side where the ticket checkers were checking the tickets but then a thought came to my mind that there is a fine difference between a brave and moron and I went on the another side of the coach. I found the washroom too away from my seat and came back to my seat without going to the washroom. I did not know what was happening with me. I could stand there in washroom and get escaped.
I was not feeling strange although it was first time with me. I was like i already knew that I would face this situation. Mentally, I was strong and intuitively, I was stronger. I had no fear of chasing the ticket checkers. Still I was sure that the ticket checkers would not check me or I would not let them to check me. My intuition was inflexible. I also thought that if there's 1% chance of being caught, I would pay them the fine, simple ! I was smiling on myself and found this situation a pleasure. Then I stood up and started going towards the ticket checkers to the washroom. I counted them. they were 4. Two of them were arguing with the family and rest were checking the tickets. On the way I excused a ticket checker for letting me go and he let me go towards the washroom. I was in the washroom now and thinking what to do now? Then I decided to go and stood where the two ticket checkers were arguing with the family because there were 4-5 person standing and enjoying the whole drama. I came out and did not go near the drama. I stood near the coach gate and started enjoying the rapid air touching my face. I stood there for 20 minutes and finally the train stopped at Mohindergarh railway station. I went back to my seat and found that the ticket checkers had already gone. I collected my bag and novel. Then the uncle asked me in an exciting manner that what did happen? Did they catch you? You paid fine? I smiled and said that I am fine and nothing happened also I said: " IF I WOULD HAVE TAKEN THE TICKET, I WOULDN'T HAVE CAUGHT THE TRAIN" :)

This philosopher 'predicted' what would happen in 2017
He was right about Trump and Modi. Will he be right about 2017?
Mention the name Nostradamus and some people will say that he predicted almost the entire history of humankind. Two of his 'predictions' seem to have come true with the victory of Donald Trump and the rise of Narendra Modi.
He 'predicted' the rise of "the great shameless, audacious bawler". Some people have interpreted this as being about Trump.
His prophecies written in four line verses called quatrains and in different languages have been open to study and interpretation for years now.
Here are some verses from his work that could very well be about what we can expect in 2017.
1. Floods and droughts
For forty years the rainbow will not be seen.
For forty years it will be seen every day.
The dry earth will grow more parched,
and there will be great floods when it is seen.
Nostradamus could very well be talking about climate change which has been a big issue for years now. Will climate change reach fever pitch in 2017?
2. A battle during the sunset
Shortly before sun set, battle is engaged.
A great nation is uncertain.
Overcome, the sea port makes no answer,
the bridge and the grave both in foreign places.
Could this be about the attack on Mosul where Daesh is on the run?
3. A time of peace prosperity
Pestilences extinguished, the world becomes smaller,
for a long time the lands will be inhabited peacefully.
People will travel safely through the sky (over) land and seas:
then wars will start up again.
It would be great if there were no conflicts for a while. But the question is could we maintain the peace? Or would wars start again as is stated in the last verse of the quatrain.
4. A controversy in a royal family
Letters are found in the queen's chests,
no signature and no name of the author.
The ruse will conceal the offers;
so that they do not know who the lover is.
Which country is it? With so much talk about the British monarchy in the past year, could it be about the Queen?
5. The waning power of the West
Twice put up and twice cast down,
the East will also weaken the West.
Its adversary after several battles
chased by sea will fail at time of need.
In recent news, China and Russia have been on the rise. The United States will aim to focus on internal matters once Trump comes to power. The property mogul has time and again said that, with the help of his fellow Americans, he will "Make America great again". Could this affect the United States' power equation with countries in the Far East?
