Lady's Compartment

It’s an amazing experience traveling in Delhi Metro Lady’s compartment. Everyday I used to observe variety of things going around me in that tiny coach. And then, thought of blogging on it. So here I come with my observation and wonderful experiences in Women-Only Coach.


Head to Toe
Gosh!! One thing is for sure, that, girls are better scanner that guys. Trust me, with each stop comes a motley crowd. Either the hottest or coolest gal of all would be the target for gawking. Especially it goes out for all the Aunties; I really want to read their mind at that very moment. Well, being a candid gal, ‘sometime’ I also do the same but yes, for my attention, one need to try really hard ;)

I am a Disco Dancer
Once I stifled my laugh in the train because I was traveling alone or I would have laughed loud. There was a girl, having earphones on, moving her whole body slightly as if she will be announced next performer on stage. I mean, I too hear songs sometime and really enjoy it but I don’t ‘Dance’ with the music in the train.

Mirror Mirror, Who is Prettier
It’ll be a lie if I use the word ‘often’, because every time the train reaches the station, instead of gearing up for boarding, each and every girl would look at the fast moving wide window which acts as a mini mirror for them because of crammed people standing inside, and will just keep on looking. Oh gosh!! Girls are really beauty freak, thank god; he made me lil different than other usual girls. ;)

Welcome to Adventure Island
You must see the kids, when they travel in metro. They are so enamored by it, as if riding a bizarre swing. They don’t even blink their eyes when they look outside the wide window. They also have a special fascination towards the steel poles (whatever it called as) made inside. I have actually seen them climbing up those. Seriously, all in all, it’s a mini Adventure Island for them.

Boys will always be Boys
We travel just behind the driver’s space, that is the very first compartment and the border line where the ladies’ coach ends and puts up a kind of Lakshman Rekha, there all the guys hangs up where even if the whole body is crammed and twisted, their eyes, head, nose, neck will be projecting towards us, that is the lady’s compartment, and not even a girl gives a fig over it. Sorry to say but they really look very poor.

Best Time-Pass
I enjoy reading book in train, but only if I grab a seat. Nowadays, I often see gals reading books, good for them. They are least bother what is going on around.

Seriously, traveling in Metro everyday brings on many experiences with it. It was mid morning, and I was traveling from Kashmere Gate Station last week. I boarded the train and as usual one can never expect much free space from this line source. I saw all the Ladies from Haryana wearing loose Salwaar-Kameez with Dupatta over head sitting in all the respective seats in Lady’s compartment. They were laughing, chatting, japed each other in between, and then suddenly I heard some village songs from the other half end of the coach, that was the remaining gang of those aunties’ group from Haryana who were singing some of their ritual songs together. They all were on their way to their village and they were happily enjoying their travel with gang of ladies. Everybody started taking pictures, started recording their ancient-kind-of-songs. I loved every moment of it. Somehow, they were adding that relishable joy factor in the train. Nobody complaint, nobody was irritated in that crowded noisy coach. It was giving that immense peace of independence to each one of us. That made every lady, girl in the coach smile, laugh. As if every girl standing there was celebrating their independence and power. They were talking together, though nobody knew anyone but it was creating bonds among us. We all were ‘one’ under the same roof. Even though it was for a jiffy, I just loved that very moment and will always bring a smile on remembering the same.

So, that’s what I love traveling in Metro and that too in lady’s compartment. I am sure you must also have some lovely experience. Share it here.

Let the world live your experience.

A wonderful account of the memorable journeys through the momentary mannerisms of the short-time acquaintances in a longer Journey of Life.

Interesting! You learn a lot of things while travelling in a public transport (provided you have enough observation power!). There are some typical 'lady habits'. I am afraid the counter parts would be sayin 'Girls will remain girls!' :D

Fantastic page. How refreshing that women are getting something of their own. It's usually men who are the better catered for. I've just pressed the 'follow' button. Nice to be friends on Wiki.
