Watching BBC Documentaries: India’s Frontier Railways has become one of my favorite pastimes.
Each morning when I come home from work, I take the dog out, make coffee for Johnny and in some cases I do some cleaning. But, before bed I watch TV, for half an hour or so. I’ve found that on TV1 (national television) they air documentaries. This is how I’ve become hooked on BBC documentaries about India.
I love India and its culture. It’s one more my favorite places in the world, with its good and bad parts. I’ve never traveled there and I hope that some day I will have the chance. It’s on my list, along with Japan and South Korea.
It relaxes me and it makes me forget about my daily responsibilities. The documentaries are slow paced and for me its very nostalgic. It’s been years since I’ve been on a train. Ever since Johnny got a car, we gave up on trains.
There are three parts out, and each is beautiful:
1. The Maitree Express
2. The Last Train in Nepal
3. The Samjhauta Express
I never thought I would be the kind who would enjoy documentaries so much. I guess it really matters the content of the said documentary. I’m sure, Johnny would not be as interested in them as much as I am.
There are other documentaries about India that have caught my attention and I plan on watching them. I also love the fact that I can enjoy them early morning, when is just me, Pluto and Marlanu’. They just sleep with me while I get to indulge in a few moments of relaxation. These are the moments that I cherish the most, the moments when you can relax and forget about your worries.
