Untrained things

2 things that intrigued me in a recent train journey:
- A slightly shabby man with a pair of worn-out rubber slippers & a raised dhoti (lungi) selling petty toys entered our coach in one of the stations. He had a long shoulder bag made out of cloth that had a print saying “Crorepati”. - The adjacent section of my compartment had a man with his baby. The baby drank something from a tumbler & spilled it upon himself. The father fastidiously cleaned the baby, changed its clothes & carried it to the toilet. When he passed me, I took a glimpse of his Tee. It read, “Great Dad 2006”.
