In a world where trends change with a blink of an eye, a man worshipping the local train before boarding, took Twitter by storm.

For a city like Mumbai where local trains are considered the lifeline, an image showing the significance that local trains hold for those staying in Mumbai has gone all kinds of viral. The picture has grabbed heartfelt attention of many, including business tycoon Anand Mahindra who re-shared the post on the social media platform.

Mahindra wrote, “The soul of India… I pray we never lose it,” while re-sharing the picture where a man bowing before a local train in Mumbai can be seen which was originally shared by Himanshu Parmar. Soon, people flooded both the posts with heartfelt comments.

“He may get emotional after 11months travelling in Mumbai local train. Very touching image Mumbaikars will understand well. We are attached to our daily local trains and meet our friends.” “Mumbai locals connect points. They connect people. A smile here, a word there with fellow commuters. Only Mumbaikars will understand what locals mean.” “This is so pure. Only those who have struggled, hanging on to that last thread, in the wonderland called Mumbai may understand – “why”? Thanks for sharing.” wrote a few of the Twitter users.

The Coronavirus pandemic had hit the local train services which had never stopped running since the time it began. For the past few months, the services for the general public were restricted in the wake of the pandemic. However, on Monday, the services were resumed after eleven months.
