Sitting alone on a bench waiting for his train to come, Ayush was feeling sad. Apparently he was remembering the argument he had with his dad in the morning while leaving. “But it’s my life Dad.” Ayush angrily told his father while packing his bags. “But Beta don’t you want to come back to us.” replied Ayush’s father. Ayush told his father that he is very much settled in Mumbai and he does not want to come back. Suddenly, a noise comes from a distant place and Ayush comes back to the reality. His train has arrived now. He picks up his luggage and stands in the queue. The train stops and the crowd comes out of the train as a swarm of bees. One father-son duo tries to get into the train but father loses his son’s hand. The train starts running. Watching his father leave him the son starts crying and starts running after the train. This triggered memory flashes of childhood in Ayush’s mind when he was a kid. On the first day of his school he was crying for his father in the same way. Ayush sees that the kid is constantly running and is in danger now. Ayush quickly grabs the kid and saves his life. The train was somehow stopped with special brakes and the father comes out from the train and hugs his son. This reminded Ayush of his first day at school when his father came to pick him after the school was over and how excited he was to back home. The kids father thanked Ayush and asked why he is still standing and not boarding the train. But as of now Ayush had already realized that you don’t need the train when you are already at the destination. Ayush picks up his luggage and rushes back to his home. He reached his home and his father opened the door. Shocked to see his son standing in front of him and he asked his son “what happened? Have you forgotten something? Ayush kneels down and touches his father’s feet and father hugs him.
