‘Indian’ is not just a nationality. It is a way of life. If you think about it, there are certain things that are synonymous with being an Indian. For example, whenever the electricity goes off, we first check if the lights are still on in the neighbouring houses. You should always have a glass of cold drinks with a plate of biryani. And, reach any destination way too early so as to not get late.
And one such destination is the railway station, where you’ll find families waiting for their trains hours beforehand. Sometimes 1 hour, sometimes 2 hours, and sometimes even 3. It doesn’t make any sense, but again, it does! 😛

My father was like this only . A private bus which left at 9 ..and the bus won’t left without calling as conductor knows us very well . Despite that he will make us all ready by 8 and March us to the bus stop which is just 100 mtrs from home . “Belahu Savadan” was his Mantra

I once reached the station at 11 PM for a 6 AM train. The reasons, it was winters and the next day was 26th January. I was not sure if I would get taxi due to fog in Delhi and was not sure of security check points due to RD parade.
