Whatever character or personality you may possess, you will feel like a part of an adventure movie if you are traveling in India. Take any transport and it will baffle you, perplex your senses and probably change your petty idealism to a sheer nuance of reality. I being a seasoned traveller can acknowledge these facts for sure because there is not even a slightest of a chance the trip comes to even close to the most generalized version I had planned. There is one fact which I always like to tell people and more so children that waiting can be fun when you travel with your desires out in the air.

There was one incident that happened with me and my college friends on our last college trip. We had a trip to Udaipur in Rajasthan. Hazrat Nizamuddin Station becomes as refreshing as the morning itself. Our 5 am train came almost on time giving us no time to explore the station and its surrounding as we usually do. Spring felt extra comfortable that year. As Holi was just around the corner, we had taken with us colours and of course bhang! At around 10 am, we ate a heavy breakfast and were set in for some serious poker with multi-coloured and a couple of multi-layered-coloured faces. At that time, I felt as if we resemble like Coldplay artists living life with hues and on the move.

Our smooth joyride took a halt in the middle of nowhere. The tea vendor who was sitting with us for just one luck at poker told us that there must be a small junction. Rajasthan, being as spotless and shiny as it could be on a spring morning was calling us to get down from the train and feel the sand and thrones of the earth. We got to know that the train will not move for around an hour or so. Now, having watched infinite movies on adventure and travel, we thought to do a little trek just around the train itself. Luggage wasn’t a problem as one happy family was on the train looking for our stuff. The sunrays were as comfortable as it could be on the skin. Our new Bluetooth JBL speakers were booming at its max. Soon we reached the engine of the train and went past that with our ears rigged for few moments. At around half a kilometer, we reached the junction. Little did we know that we were about to witness a movie majesty!

We waited and waited. I think my friends had gone crazy or so. They were talking on vague topics and the more surprising part was that they all sounded so rational. Suddenly, we heard a train honk from far away. No train in India has such a sweet tone! The Palace on Wheels train arrived with an amazing canvas framed by the golden background of Rajasthan. It had a yellow glowing colour on the major portion of it and gave a feeling of phantasmagorical vision. The glossy purple upper and lower boundaries were complementing the train quite well. We were so surprised to believe that we are witnessing one of the grand luxury trains of India in the hot desert state. It gave us a feeling of an urban legend as we had always thought of seeing Palace on Wheels train but never got the opportunity. We didn’t have the chance to get overwhelmed with the breath-taking beauty that lay inside the train but we sure were bamboozled by its outer elegance.

We took multiple photographs of the train, with the train and most importantly with the entertained personals inside the Palace on Wheels train. Even some of the other passengers came down to have a close look on that enigmatic piece running so secretively on the Indian tracks. It was like you can touch the train and you will realize that it blossomed with class and splendor. Our trip was kick-started in a grand fashion.

That day I realized that sometimes waiting can lead to some amazing moments which for us came in the form of Palace on Wheel train.
