As a result, rather than stepping ahead, they tend to step from side-to-side. If you are observant like me and take a few moments to view this sight of quiet human suffering, it seems like the people are moving like a pendulum, oscillating between long lines of bodies bathed in stinking sweat, their elbows slowly brushing against each other’s. What makes this sight even funnier to me are folks who keep peeking ahead, raising themselves on their toes, as if their hate vision emanating from their red, tired eyes is going to make the people in front of them vanish into thin air!
For me, viewing this has now become a routine affair, since my exit Metro station, i.e. Noida-15, is always overflowing with humanity. On some days, I catch the glimpse of these over-touchy women who seem to get an electric shock every time a human pendulum dares to touch their skin. The look of utter disgust on their faces is priceless.
