Its been 20 years since I am traveling by DC Metro rail.Travelling in the DC metro rails has always been exciting experience.You meet different kinds of peeople.But yesterday something strange happened.
On the way home tonight from Fort Totten as usual, the commuter in the seat ahead mine was absolutely drunk. He was almost collapsed. He started the conversation by asking whether I am from India.I said I from Mexico. Next 30 minutes followed was series of lectures on anti war,conditions of prisoners and so on.He even went back in 1979 of that Iran embassy hostage case.Ok,fine.I can listen to people of different kind.
But what will be your reaction if you are asked in the train whether you are a gay or straight! I replied negatively.I asked "Are you?" to which he replied yes and said he is president(east coast) of "Gay association of immigrants from India"
Enough said,finally gave a major blow by saying whether I want to join celebration party.For what?This guy is celebrating 17th aniversary of his suffering from Hepatic and Splenic Bacillary Peliosis!!Next 10 minutes he again explained me everythng about disease.I was not at all listening to him.After sometime I was feeling guilty.
Last 20 years,I saw varius types of people in journey.But never saw this kind of guy.
