Two for Joy!!

Filed under: Life as I know it — Celia Rexselin @ 2:51 pm

It was a pleasant morning. The cool breeze embraced me as I peeped out of the window. The train driver seemed to be in a cool relaxed mood and the train was moving in a super relaxed pace. As the train moved out of the station, the sun rays shined on me :). It is a nice little feeling. To have the morning sun shine on you.. I was enjoying the moment when the aunty next to me started speaking.

She started saying about her problems and I listened. As I was listening, a thought occurred to me.. Theres nothing really I can do to help her other than listening. And she seemed to enjoy it too. And the train stopped at Triplicane.. I peeped out of the window again. A row of ravens were standing on a line on the MRTS station wall. It seemed as if they were there to welcome the train. I grinned within myself and then noticed a pair.

Those two were not looking in the direction of the train. They were not looking at the opposite direction too. Instead they were standing and looking at each other.. Without moving.

The train didn't seem to start. And I started looking intently at the raven pair again. If it had been few years ago, I would have just yelled "Two for Joy" and passed on the wish to one of my friends. But now, I wondered what made these ravens look at each other like this. That too for a whole lot of 3 minutes.. Won't they get tired?

One of the ravens, suddenly seemed to sense that someone was looking at it. He/she turned back and saw in my direction. It seemed to say..

"Manidhar unarndhu kolla idhu … ".



  1. Is really beautifull to see the rays falling onto you and warming up!! But unfortunatly, here.. UV effect is very high, although people enjoy sun but they mask themself with sun lotion..!! which i hate..

    They are a couple!.. they too would like to enjoy being their…. may when they was watching each other..!! their silence must be speaking isn’t so?.. Sometimes when we are with our close pals.. even thou we do not speak anything.. at the end.. we dont feel bad.. just their presence will make things look different!..what do you think???

  5. @sujit- I know. Its enough to look into each others eyes if one knows the person very well.. Eyes tell a lot of story..

    @babu- sollaaama solreengala vaathiyaare!!

    @thetalkativeman- he he 😀 Its amazing to see that animals too can feel love, express feelings, think etc etc.. Wonder what would have happened if they had the “ONE” more sense.

    @Praveen- He he!! namma onnum avangala disturb pannaliye!!

  7. Wow,nice way to see things in a train journey..I end up seeing the not-so good things. The mentally retarded guy roaming in the station,the police mama asking mamool from the rose seller, the way folks litter after eating in the VRV railway stalls.. guess [perceptions too play a huge role in a trip..the only thing I enjoy is thebanter of school kids who introduce themselves with their sections kinda 3rd std’B’ 🙂
