During my vacations, I went to New Delhi with my family. On a sunny afternoon, we planned to go to Rajouri Garden. I asked my father how we were going to get there. He replied calmly that we were taking the metro. “Metro?” I wondered out loud, “What’s that?” My dad simply smiled and said that I’ll come to know soon.
We took a rickshaw to the metro station. My dad got the tickets and the train arrived just as we reached the platform. It was huge!
We got into a spacious compartment and stood enjoying the view from the window. It was stunning. In the evening, the city was illuminated with lights from houses, cars, traffic and streets. It was a marvellous visual treat.
My first metro ride was fabulous and fascinating.
