Alok All the best buddy come back with the trophy you deserve it go get it. These were the reinforcing words that Alok's friends were saying to Alok the hero of this Story. Alok was a young table tennis player, who was so passionate about the game that nothing more than a win would satisfy him. He was to represent his Organisation at the National table tennis tournament to be held in Ahmedabad. Alok was so excited and happy with butterflies running in his tummy due to the anxiety that is normal until he would start playing the match . His friends left once the train started moving. By the way Alok had boarded the train from Mumbai. He settled in his seat that was a window seat. Wow the journey would be great thought Alok sitting comfortably. After an hour of travel the train halts in the Station. Now,a big family with a lot of luggage boarded his compartment.
Many bags and baggage of all sizes thinks Alok. He guessed it was a Gujju family(yes you guessed it right Gujarati)from their dialect ofcourse. The train starts moving again. After sometime everyone is busy opening their bags that had food items brought along with them. Alok had only packed few veg sandwiches and he started munching them enjoying his window seat and the nature outside the window. He was lost in the songs that were playing on his phone and earphoneSuddenly he sees two rotis that looked so tempting in his plate. He sees an middle-aged aunty who was from the gujju family who says beta kaon achcha lagega. (Son eat them you will like the taste)Alok mumbles nahi nahi. But the aunty was back to her seat and busy serving food to other members of her family and feeding her young kid alongside. Alok felt it is ok let me finish them they are very tasty indeed. After lunch everyone were quiet and relaxing for sometime.
Then again tea time and the aunty again comes and serves few snacks in a plate and hands it to Alok amidst his mumbling nhi(no no) she had served typical gujarati snacks like matri and sev. Who could deny tasting them? Right? that is what Our hero did too. After sometime the young kid was made to sit opposite Alok with a request that the boy wants to look out of the window as he was getting bored The side window seat can be extended so Alok could not say No. After all he was being served with tasty food since the journey started. He allows the boy to sit along with him and even tries to engage him with the songs he was listening. Now it was dinner time and the Aunty again serves him rotis and tasty sabzi that Alok liked so much Wow what a treat he thought .
Ok dinner finished and now it was bed time. Alok was trying to spread his bedsheets and pillow when the aunty comes near him and in a requesting manner asks beta(son) can you shift to the upper berth you see I have a young kid who has to share my berth otherwise he may fall down while sleeping. Please shift to the upper berth. Now now Alok got it aw this is why I was fed with breakfast, lunch and dinner and evening snacks too. Wow who can outwit a Gujjuben ni aunty ??She got a lovely seat in lieu of theplas so simple !!!
