Some are busy on their laptops (office work, as expressions showing it clearly), some with the headphones and rest chatting with their friends over phones. No one is really bothered about his/her fellow passenger. Noticing it for quite some time I also got lost in the memories of my last journey when I was in the train

The Great Indian (Before) Marriage Tamasha – Part 2

So how did my search for Mr Right go? With everyone relying upon technology (to throw you solutions), my parents, just like millions of other Indian parents, put my profile on every matrimonial site available.
