It was nearly impossible for me to reach my home in Maduravoyal by any mode of public transport — until the Metro Rail came into service. My office is in Chetpet so now I take the train from Kilpauk to Koyambedu every day and a taxi from there.
Once, while I was getting into the train, a girl frantically asked me if I had mobile network on my phone. She wanted to call her own because she had left it at the ticket counter. I obliged and she was reunited with her phone finally. When she got into the train, she thanked me profusely and we got talking. She told me she was a wedding planner who was desperately looking for a client because she hadn’t had one since the co-founder of her company and she had dissolved their venture.
I don’t know if it was my luck or hers but I happened to be that client — a frazzled bride in search of a wedding planner! Shrishti (name changed) went on to organise my entire wedding really well.
