Life on the fast tracks

How our lives revolve around the suburban local train system:
“Okay, my train will reach Kurla at 10.03. Meet you under the indicator on platform number one.”
“What do you mean you were in your regular train? I also took the 8.28 CST Fast and you were not there in your regular seat in the Gents First Class.”
“I am in the 5.43. Meet you in the Ladies First Class in the middle of the train.”
“Are you in the 9.55? Let’s meet at Bandra and share an auto(riskshaw) to office.”
How blindly we follow the official railway timetable! So what if each train is running late by eight to 10 minutes?
