In this journey of life, we often bump across people who make their presence felt in our life in a special way. They inspire us through their life. Their life story is no different than a lesson for all of us. UNIQUE is the keyword that distinguishes them from the others. No one imagined that a tea seller would lead a nation one day, a bus conductor would turn into a Superstar or a newspaper boy would grow up to become a scientist. These individuals led their life in such a way that not only teaches great lessons to many but also inspires them. One such story is that of a little boy called Lionel from Rosario. Rosario is a small town in Argentina which is known for its Football Culture. This boy worked hard and harder and one day he scaled great heights that he was known as the Superstar of the Football world. The little boy Lionel was none other than our Lionel Messi. Lionel Andres Messi, the world’s most celebrated footballer. He had a great zeal for this sport. And this is what one of his coach from his childhood days said about him.
“When you saw him you would think: this kid can’t play ball. He’s a dwarf; he’s too fragile, too small. But immediately you’d realize that he was born different, that he was a phenomenon and that he was going to be something impressive.” – Adrian Costa.
Messi never fails either Mumbai Local. There have been several instances where the players from the opposite team played foul and tried to topple you down and gain free kicks. Messi is honest. The drawback of being honest is that people tend to take you for granted and throw you down and apply their bad tricks on you. This is applicable to every aspect of life. Messi rarely misses any chances, but he never steals a shot from any player. He never loses his balance, composure and is sincere.
“I always thought I wanted to play professionally, and I always knew that to do that I’d have to make a lot of sacrifices. I made sacrifices by leaving Argentina, leaving my family to start a new life. I changed my friends, my people. Everything. But everything I did, I did for football, to achieve my dream.” – Lionel Messi.
“Messi is the best player in the world by some distance. He’s like a PlayStation. He can take advantage of every mistake we make.” – Arsène Wenger
“For the world of football, Messi is a treasure because he is role model for children around the world… Messi will be the player to win the most Ballons d’Or in history. He will win five, six, seven. He is incomparable. He’s in a different league.” – Johan Cruyff
“It’s the fastest mode of travel in the city. Compared to other transport and other travel modes, its the cheapest too. It’s the lifeline of Mumbai without which the city would come to a grinding halt” – Sanjay Thampy.
“It’s a window to the world. So much can be learnt while observing people go by, even a mundane routine teaches us about hundreds of lives of strangers who walk past us. So different yet so similar” – Divyakshi Gupta.
Both Messi and Mumbai local are reliable. In Messi’s case, his entire team depends on him and so does the fans. And he never lets them down. That’s the best part of the story.
6. Team Player
Messi plays for the team. He never brags about the number of awards he won or goals he scored. It’s hard to see such a humble person in today’s era.
“I prefer to win titles with the team ahead of individual awards or scoring more goals than anyone else. I’m more worried about being a good person than being the best football player in the world. When all this is over, what are you left with? ” – Lionel Messi
And then Mumbai local is a team player too. Check out this statement made by my friend Deepika.
“Have you seen those crowded trains that go to Karjat and Virar? I have noticed something here. It doesn’t matter how crowded these trains are ..people there are always willing to accommodate that one more person who is almost about to miss the train and some other person or another will offer his hand and pull him up to the footboard even when the train is in motion. Respect!” – Deepika Mantri.
Like we all have college friends, school friends, office friends and building friends, some people also have train friends. And they always catch the same train and the same compartment and sometimes the same seat. Thanks to the Mumbai Local.
Mumbai Local takes us closer to our goal as it serves as our travel partner! It is an integral part of our life and people in Mumbai would agree to me.
“Greatness is earned, not self proclaimed” – Ankita Singhal
