Train horns have never sounded so beautiful. I felt happy whenever I awoke to this sound, even if I had gone to bed in a different mood. It meant that delicious aromas would soon emanate from the kitchen, which would make me happy. It meant I was back in that tiny one-bedroom house where only one person opened her arms wide open to make me feel at ease. It indicated that I was at my grandmother's residence.
Everyone who had a simple conversation with her was filled with love because of her warmth. My grandfather was a reclusive man who rarely spoke to his family, but my grandmother had a completely different family, people who lived down the street. They provided so much love in so many different ways and created so many memories that they sometimes provided more than her daughters and son could. There was so much love around her that it seeped into me as well.
This time, as I looked for train routes to my grandmother’s house, I was surprised as to how easy it all has become via Trainman. Online train ticket booking that took hours before, aggressively taking my money and time away, has become so seamless and affordable via Trainman.
Back To The Visit..
Janmabhoomi Express was the name of the happiness train. It took me from the bustling city of Hyderabad to the tranquil beach town of Vishakapatnam. Whenever I was asked to choose between "beach or mountain," I would confidently say "beach," because it was where I spent my childhood. It would take an agonising 12 hours to arrive at the destination. On the train, the steam of ginger tea kept my impatience at bay. When I arrived, the first thing I saw was a sari-clad, always-smiling, beautiful woman whom I addressed as my grandmother
Grandma's house is my safe haven, where I know that any harm will be brief. My uncle would sneak us out at dawn to watch the sunrise light up the skies and my eyes. If you ask me, this is one of the best beaches in the world.
Nowadays, planning a vacation rarely includes a train trip. But if it does, it certainly transports us back to our childhood, when vacationing meant taking beautiful train journeys in India. It also meant admiring the changing landscapes as the train passed through towns and villages, playing cards or a memory game, chatting over warm tea in earthen cups (known locally as Kulhad), tasty snacks, and much more! India has the most beautiful train routes, traversing breathtaking and diverse landscapes such as steep mountain slopes, narrow valleys, and vast seas. Make sure , you too get to experience the same journey.
