basic services...

ok, the last few days have been rather stressful and hectic...and it promises to be same for sometime more...so i am not in my best moods...i have so much of work that i cant concerntrate on any one in particular...everything is urgent and needed to be done yesterday...and my going home has also been defered...today morning i had to cancel my train ticket to kolkata, which is a heartsore in itself...
the lajpatnagar railway counter always has huge queues with someone or the other trying to break queue or stand in the ladies queue with a fake identity card...then someone will invariably notice and a fight would break out...with all these fiery tempered sardars in lajpatnagar it becomes lively with colourful language being used...i just dont understand why people break queues to begin with because with all the fighting they land up wasting much more time and definitely more energy...each to his own...
so i was expecting at least an hour long queue and some confusion...and to my utter confusion the counter was neat and clean and there was no queue. i almost thought that it was closed or the computers were down...but holy god it was open, the computers were up and running and the man at the counter actually smiled and was polite to me!
if basic services in india becomes this smooth and hasslefree then there would be no country better than india in the world...we should learn to expect such smooth services and not be surprised at them if and when they happen...but i cant stop feeling elated and happy about it...and this little incident actually has made me feel so good that even half my stress has vanished...
