"LOVE IT".........."DO IT"......!!!!

Train was about to start from Mira road station. One thin person having little heavy sack hurriedly got down from 1st compartment and tried to get into 2nd compartment. Train had already picked up little speed. "Please give me hand"....he shouted and people in door pulled him inside.

"Be careful Man..."
"There are so many trains...don't be in hurry..."
"Be calm while catching is more important..."
"why people are behaving like stupid when there is a train after every 5 mins......"

Many people in that compartment spoked something spontenously but that person was trying to catch his breath while standing near seat's entrance. Becasue of all these sudden noise Krishna's nap got disturbed and he had dull glance over entire compartment to know what had happened. he didn't got what had happened so again he went into sleep with head down.

As soon as that person felt settled, he loudly said, "Gentlemens, may I have your attention please...!!!"


Krishna was a hardworking and dashing marketing executive, struggling for getting head start for his career. writing was his passion. He regularly used to publish some white paper on marketing topics for which he used to get some good response from his reader friends. But for last 3-4 papers response from readers was below average. Worst thing was even his best friend Radha had not gave him any feedback for last couple of papers.
Last week he had started writing on one new topic but he was not able to complete it becasue of fustration.

In addition to this, even his marketing meetings on that day were average. He was lagging like anything for his sales targets. He was totally doomed and upset because of his screwed up situation.

After finishing last meeting at Virar, he caught slow train for Churchgate. Since it was evening time, there was not much rush. He got window seat and sat with head down, lost in cyclone of his thoughts.

Suddenly near Mira road station his nap got disturbed because of some noise.


"Gentlemens, may I have your attention please?'......salesman started with full enthusiasm as if he is standing on presentation dice infront of thousands of audiance. While talking, he took out one small book from his bag.

"I have got some treat for you. This is knowledge treat which will help you get more information about our country's Geography."

He opened small book in his hand and after unfolding it became big map of India.

"So How many of you know what are our neighbouring countries? Which are important rivers in India? How they flow? How many states India have? How National highways are connecting entire India? What is capital of Maharashtra or any other state?"
"All this knowledge can be gained by playing one interesting game on this map. So see we will play game and also get knowledge, Isn't it interesting?"


Though half the people in that compartment were sleeping but he was talking as if everybody is listening with full interest.
Salesman was looking so fresh that Krishna couldn't believe that five minutes before that person was struggling for breath. Krishna was amazed at his energy.

Hardly anybody was listening but still that salesman was explaning everything properly. His face was glittering like gold. eyes were shining like stars and hands were moving as if he is telling new secret to this world. overall it appeared as if he was enjoying highet state of Happniess.

Now Krishna forgot his sleep and was curious to know secret of energy of that person.


"So I am about to start Game, are you guys ready?"...salesman questioned to all people in compartment.

"I am going to ask to find some place on this map, you just have search that place and show me."
"So tell me where is Mumbai on this map?......please take this map in my hand and tell me."

"Its there on east side of India" guy from college group sitting over there pointed his finger and showed it.

"Yes, perfect. Like this you can ask any question to your friend and let him search it. Isn't it a funny Game?"
College students smiled. Now few aged people also got some interest.

"Let me ask you little difficult question. Which Indian state is touching border of 4 other Indian states and 4 internation countries."

Now College group got real interest. They took map in their hand started searching but didn't got it.
"Please tell us answer"....students started shouting after some time.

he smiled and said....."Its Sikkim and showed it to everybody"......everyone was rejoiced. They again got lost into map to confirm the same.

"If you have liked this knowledgable game then you can purchase this map for just 20 rupees. Please let me know who want to buy it. Please check it and take it"...he announced.

Four college students and one old age grandapa bought it.

Krishna was just lost in whatever going over there. He was highly impressed by Salesman skills. Finally he came out of shock and bought one map.


By this time it was Bandra station. There was some empty space next to Krishna so salesman sat there for sometime.

"This map is really informative"....Krishna started conversation with Salesman.
"oh yeah....Thanks......I am getting down at Dadar. Bye"....he said and moved towards gate. Krishna also wanted to get down at Dadar so he also moved towards gate.

After getting down salesman got settled down on one nearby bench. Krishna also followed him.

"I want to ask you one thing?"....Krishna again started conversation.
" ask".....he replied while gulping couple of sip water from his bottle.

"You looked so Happy. What is secret of your smile? Energy?...When you were selling your maps, no one was paying any attention but still you talked from bottom of your heart. You gave lot of information....then finally only four people bought it. You hardly got any money out of it."

Salesman just smiled. he said, "I get some little money by selling these maps but I dont do this for money. Geography study is my hobby. Actually I work as a peon in one office at Vasai. Becasue of my financial situation and family responsibility I couldn't get higher education. So I get my bread-butter by that job and while traveling back to home I enjoy my geography hobby by selling maps. So I was Happy becasue I was enjoying it. Frankly speaking, We should not do everything for money. Somethings should be done for satisfaction. I like map reading. I feel great while explaining maps. It gives me out of the world Happiness. In your worlds, may be thats secret of my energy and smile....IF YOU LOVE IT.....THEN JUST DO IT....dont worry about the world."

"Great. Thank you."....Krishna replied with gratitude.
"Welcome. Bye...I need to go to central side and catch fast train for Thane".....salesman got disappread.

Krishna felt enlighted becasue of salesman's simple philosophy. He was standing among thousands of people at 7pm on Dadar station but still he felt deep silence..."Yes, I should write.....irrespective of anything....yes, I should write"....he was constantly talking to himself.

Suddenly he realized that his cell phone was ringing. It was Radha's call...."Hi Krishna, How are you? Sorry I couldn't call you since long becasue I was busy in some family function but your last write up was too Good."
