Public transport: mindfulness and preserving environment

I love to use the public transportation system for little help to the planet, environment and health instead of driving regularly. For me, this is the best time to read books, reports, news articles and to be creative for the next posts. Public transport is the best way of peace of mind and freedom from the stress of traffic chaos in driving. So I was rush to get the train and walking fast. It was nice to be able to catch the train in time without waiting a long. But the service was delayed and the train which I boarded was late. If I say I was lucky, I might be selfish because who have already boarded and been late as scheduled to get their job done were victimised! No idea, how to express empathy for this situation!  

Later, my mind was shaking whether the seat was available. Because it is normally a nightmare to get a seat easily in the train although the price is charged for the full service. What would happen if I have to get my destination without having seat, just travel standing! Oh! Let’s not think more stupid question because we are not allowed to hurt business and profit who are making to invest in the economy. But, it is clear that there is an insufficient supply of services than increasing demand. And, this is the right time for the clever capitalist to manipulate the service, profit and price by squeezing the services. However, I believe business always grow in an ethical soil!  


It is better expecting humanity and honesty from every passenger so that public transport can be a relaxing peace zone where we can get utterly mindfulness. Because everyone has a different kind of stress from different activities. They need a common peaceful zone.


People should learn to win their own mistakes and love for others. And, the corporate house should follow their path of ethics for sustainable business.

However, in contrast, let’s see if there are inconsiderate passengers boarding on the train! The coach of the train was almost full. Meanwhile, I was searching for a seat if there was any left. However, most of the double seated rows were occupied by a single customer by putting their stuff. It was a shame!  A gentleman occupied a row of two seats by keeping his stuff such as muffler, cap and gloves on the attached seat. He seemed careless and inconsiderate. It is better expecting humanity and honesty from every passenger so that public transport can be a relaxing peace zone where we can get utterly mindfulness. Because everyone has a different kind of stress from different activities. They need a common peaceful zone. In this regard, cannot be the public transportation a great place of harmony, love and peace! This approach can be a powerful driver to reduce the number of private transport and save the environment, cost and time. Ultimately it is a kind of blooming peaceful life we can enjoy. However, the guy who was sitting by scattering his stuff on the seats was not an exception to follow the rule of the game. So, I had to open my mouth and asked him that “would you mind removing your stuff from the seat so that I can set on?”. His face was filled with regret and guilt, I could read. He, indeed, letting him down by himself.   

They are misusing a nice word SORRY and APOLOGIES
every moment by not providing good services! How many times mistake (SORRY) is allowed ?!

Why did he do so? I did not blame him for his stupidity and arrogance but I sought a reason he might had and that reason pushed him to ignore the rule. What I believe is a man cannot be bad without a reason. So, dealing with those reasons is the true practice of solving the problem instead of giving them punishment. Irrational punishment makes people anger and aggressive but love motivate them to realise their mistake.

Hence, the question is why people ignore/ disobey the rules! that is a kind of conflict, which easily creates social disorder. Mostly, such conflict is generated from the service provider such as institution, person or authority. I guessed the dishonesty expressed by that guy could be as 1) He was a frequent train services user and frustrated with the poor services such as frequent delay, dirty stations and crowed 2) Poor job satisfaction because of remuneration is not enough to cover basic needs 3) Family conflict with wife, children or parents in allocating time, services or buying things for them 4) Financial burden or nearing billing date or piling amount of mortgages- student loan, housing, car insurance and so on. Reasonably, any could be. Indeed, the punishment to stop him to do so wouldn’t be effective without dealing with those issues associated with the person in their day to day life. Creating the best humanity in society is the responsibility of all stakeholders to deal with individual issues and preferences. Otherwise, it is the wrong medicine for the disease.  It just hides the current problem but become a growing seed of conflict for the future.

Let’s think again why a gentleman was choosing a situation to let himself down!? If there was nothing wrong with the guy, such behaviour within the public transportation, I think, poses a frustration against poor services such as frequent delay, old infrastructure, hiking price and an expensive ticket. So, I believe, better service from the service providers can inspire a customer to be considerate. Customer loves the services they have been receiving. And finally, business grows within the ethical behaviour of the corporate house.

So this is a matter of further investigation for the benefit of consumerism. The globalisation is also termed as consumerism I.e. consumer is always right. The growing materialistic and individualistic culture has slowly been swallowing common feelings, empathy, sympathy, humanity, welfare feeling of co-existence and reconciliation. People should learn to win their own mistakes and love for others. And, the corporate house should follow their path of ethics for sustainable business. It is my polite request from this piece of writing to all who are commuting on the public transport, please be a considerate to other service users by offering them help and hope, so that we can make a different world!
