Sound of train engines, not cartoons piques this 5-year-old boy’s interest.

22 Sep
When Lucknow Metro finally took off on Tuesday , it wasn’t just the city’s dream come true but also that of five-yearold Aman Ojha, who might be the transport system’s youngest fan. 

Aman is extremely passionate about trains and has been closely following the Metro project’s progress for the past two years. The otherwise shy Aman maintains a diary in which he pastes newspaper clippings and photographs of the project’s progress.

On being asked about what fascinates him the most, the five-year-old said, “It’s the speed and the way these trains move. I love the sound of the engine.“ Impressed by the boy’s love for Metro, managing director of Lucknow Metro Rail Corporation Kumar Keshav presented him with a toy train during the project’s inauguration on Tuesday .

The boy’s father, Piyush, said. “He was hardly one-and-a-halfyears old when he first travelled in Rajdhani Express. He liked it so much that he used to jump with joy on seeing a train each time. The day he got to know Lucknow is getting its own Metro, he was overwhelmed and curious.“

A banker, Piyush and his wife take Aman to the railway station every weekend to satiate his inquisi tiveness. “I guess now, it would have to be the Metro station,“ he added.

The five-year-old has already charted out a career plan. No points for guessing what he wants to become–a loco-pilot. “He used to say he wants to become a train driver. One day , he got to know that loco pilot is a more apt term for the profession he’s aspiring for. Since then, he says he wants to become a loco pilot.“
