As a kid, we are always asked what do you want to become when you grow older. My answer was always the same – an (train) engine driver. And as far as I can remember, for a very long time I actually wanted to become one – so much that I used to wander around those massive engines every time I traveled in a train. I would keep giving pitiful looks to the driver hoping he’d allow me to enter the engine atleast once. And you know what – I actually got the chance to travel in an engine once for over 100 kms! Damn, that was so cool!
But that story is for another blog post, another alphabet probably.
