God blessed me I wasn’t on one of those scenic trains, that take you to mind-blowing places and you can be lost for words to describe the beauty of the landscape outside.'Many times the wrong train took me to the right place...' I was contemplating the meaning and wisdom of Mr.Coelho’s words some more time when my eye caught the image of a sweet, little girl staring out the train window.Her black hair was tied back with a green ribbon, her arms wrapped around the train railing next to her seat, her soulful eyes taking in everything around her.
Sitting on a train on a sunny morning and reading a book, I came across Paulo Coelho’s quote which read as 'many times the wrong train took me to the right place'.
I suppressed the binge to check out my ticket, whether I had boarded the right train and started wondering what I would find at my final destination, which might just turn out to be that magic right place. Would I enjoy the journey more than the actual fact of getting there? Like many other train passengers, I dived into my book and became totally focused on my reading.
The mom looked so unperturbed with the girl’s excitement that it reminded me of my own disappointment with adults that I felt as a child.
Why don’t adults take time to enjoy the precious feelings generated by sights, experiences and things around them?

According to a research, the number of people accessing the web through mobile phones is now accounting for well over 15% of worldwide internet usage.
My siblings and me would stare out of the window, admiring the changing views of the landscape as it swept fast and furiously past us."Look mommy! "There is a windmill." Her mother barely noticed; her fingers fervently typing away on her laptop.
"Mmmmmm," the mother mumbled, not taking her eyes from the screen.
They are dramatically changing the way people contact to each other.
In recent years, the world has witnessed a booming number of mobile phones.
