It is affordable, pollution free, and by far the fastest means of transportation medium within the city. And you don’t even have to worry about the nerve-wracking traffic on roads while traveling in the metro.
Everyday journey in Delhi Metro is not less than any wonder ride. We come across different types of people who are worth observing and make our travel quite interesting or should we say intolerable at times. So, let’s find out different types of people we come across on our everyday metro ride.
Because sleeping in bed at home is too mainstream. So these people find the most comfortable seat in the metro and take a power nap before reaching their respective destinations. Don’t get offended if they ever hang to your shoulder while sleeping. After all, Delhi Metro logon ki suvidha ke liye hai.
Yes, the big luggage owners! Carrying tons of luggage, they create huge inconvenience for fellow passengers. Also, they give us feels of Shatabdi while traveling in a metro. Because with all the luggage, we can only imagine someone shifting to another city/state.
Oh, lord save everyone from these loudspeakers! They are fighting with their partner over the phone and the whole compartment knows that. Courtesy- their loud tone and now everyone knows this guy/girl just broke us with his/her partner.
Oh So-Much-In-Love Couples
They can’t keep their hands off each other. Always hugging and kissing their partners. And they don’t care about other passengers getting annoyed with their PDA. Because they took ‘Pyaar kiya to Darna kya’ quite literally.
Yeah, because it’s really important for them to know which series you are binge-watching on Netflix or who you’re texting at the moment. They would keep looking at your phone while sitting next to you in the metro all the time. Nah, your cold looks cannot stop them from taking their peeping job seriously.
Couldn’t find a seat in the metro? No problem. The floor is always available. These people will always find a teeny-tiny space at the corner of the metro and sit there till their destination arrive. They are never bothered about the comments of sulking fellow passengers and hold on to their position like a sage.
Eating & Drinking are prohibited in the metro do not hold any meaning for these guys. They are hungry and they love to eat. So they’ll keep munching snacks or fruits in the metro and making those irritating sounds while eating.
Even if there is a vacant seat in the metro, these people love to continue their eternal love for the poles in the metro compartments. They can hug them for hours standing or leaning in different angles. And yes, this category all includes all those kids who just love to hang on the metro poles for no reason. The metro ride is no less than a fun playtime for these kids.
You’ll find this person in every metro who won’t leave the door, come what may. He/she stands by the door and guard it as if it is the door to heaven and only pure souls are allowed to enter the metro no one else.
Stand close to them and you can hear the entire Coldplay music list being played on their cellphone. Yes, the music is that loud that it easily penetrates from their earphone to your ears. Loud enough to make you deaf. Oh, and yes, they may rap verse or two while listening to their favorite singer. So, entertainment guaranteed.
Well, they are found almost everywhere in Delhi. But there is no escape when you are stuck with them in the same metro compartment. They’ll keep staring at you till infinity. I am sure most girls reading this blog would relate to the situation. However, boys are also at the receiving end of these gawkers at times. They’ll stare at anything and everything. Be it your clothes, shoes, bags, or anything that grabs their attention. They’ll literally kill you with looks!
Their elbows are their finest weapon while traveling in the metro. They’ll keep pushing you with their pointed elbows till they find the most comfortable. And yes, you can spot these pushers on escalators as well!
No matter how crowded the metro is or how loud the fellow passengers are, these people always manage to hold on to their books and read page by page without getting disturbed even once. It’s like apart from the world of books, no other world actually exists for them.
Most commonly found in Delhi metro. The minute they see the metro arriving, they turn into Usain Bolt and run as if there will be no other train after that. Yeah, they can be really competitive at times! And what you need to do is stay far, far away from these runners, so that you don’t end up getting hurt physically.
Their favorite hobby is to overhear conversations of people in the metro. No matter how quietly you try to speak on the phone or try to have a conversation with your friend in the metro, they would hear anything and everything that comes out of your mouth. If you give them looks, they’ll just try and pretend as if nothing has happened. And just when you look away and get back to your conversation, they’ll be at it again!
