Does sleeping in train develop brain? – Description by a traveler
I was thinking whether sleeping in the trains develop ones brain. Do you wonder why I think so? I do not know if you have seen people sleeping in the train, if yes then you can see the way they sleep; forgetting all the tensions, work, family, and people around them. Brain can only develop if you are free to think and apply. The train sleepers sleep 1-2 hours in the train. These are the government employees, ones working in private companies, executives who travel daily through train.
If you notice closely, you can see many funny aspects. People normally sleep in train sometimes unknowingly where majority have their mouth opened during this process. It may appear as if there is a grand gala invitation to the neighboring flies and mosquitoes.
Some of them even sleep on the shoulders of their fellow passengers. When I refer about all and miss myself then it is not fair. This video was taken by sreekuamar when we were traveling in Venad express train. I always keep my ipod with me to hear the songs and always fall asleep. I never knew what I did unless Sreekumar show me this video.
Venad express runs from Shornur to Trivandrum every day and reaches tripunithura by 5.30 PM. It arraives at Kayamkulam by 8 PM. This is the only train available to officers working the shifts of 9 to 5.30 Pm. There is a crowd to welcome you on the weekends and then do not expect anything other than a safe place at the side of the door. If you are a experienced traveler then you can adjust yourselves at the balconies of the wooden boggies.
We went a couple of months before to attend Sreekumar’s wedding and there was not even a place to stand in the train. The dreams to attend the morning marriage appeared to be in vein until Sunil discovered the goods boggie. This was the first time I was traveling in this boggie. We found a lot of space there. People soon filled there space on the balconies, lower corners and even on the floor. Traveling by train is fun and hectic depending on the situation.
We attended sreekuamars marriage happily and decided to travel Ernakulam. We reached the station by 3.30 Pm and the next train was said to arrive on 4 PM. The train arrived in 4- 5 minutes after a voice from a woman announced its arrival. The train moved around the station and I could see people filled in like stuffed tomatoes in a small basket.
We managed to get into the train and soon adjusted the rush and the hot temperature created by the crowded people. It appeared as if we were kept for cooking in the cooker. We all were waiting for some people to get down and some fresh air to enter the doors, touching our face to create a cool sensation. I searched for Prashant and laughed the moment I noticed him sleeping on the back of a passenger.
If you are best at sleeping in the trains then you will never experience the hectic traveling and crowded people. It shows sleep is good for health and your brains. So keep sleeping in trains.
