Trains always remind me of my very affectionate 6 years old brother, (suffering with Down’s syndrome), how he loved to play train. He himself would become an engine, tie me and brother with a rope and try to pull us. The moment he whistled we would go in different direction making it difficult for him.

He will argue ‘bogies should go with the engine.’

‘And engine should go with the driver and driver should go with the passengers’ we will chide.

The end was always a mock fight with we huddled kicking each other until mother’s intervention.

Only memories remain.



About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing thought, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.

  1. Dear Indira,

    Is this a true story? It’s very sweet in any case. I could picture these three children.




    • Yes dear except fighting part. He was such a cute brother left us when he was just six. Thanks For the read. Shalom.
