Have you met someone sometime and can never forget that meeting?

Sometimes we meet someone and for some reason we just cannot forget that meeting or that person. Has there been any incident in your life that you would like to share here with all mylotters? It may be something funny that happened then or something sad.
• Delhi, India

Recently I was stuck in railways station, where I had to wait for 13 hours at a stretch for boarding my train. I met a middle aged man, who joined me, while I was waiting at the platform. He asked about me. I we told him that I live in Delhi he retorted - "My only daughter is also employed in a Multi National Company in your city and she stays alone in the city." He was also a sufferer like me because all his plans to move to the other city through train had gone hay wire due to strike in the city. He told as that he wanted to hire a taxi to go to his destined place but even any cabs were not plying as the city had come to a stand still. He noticed a beautiful photograph on my mobile phone screen and asked - "Is it your wife's photo?" I just gave him a smile and said - "No, it is not, it is a Hollywood actress "Angelina Jolie". He countered me - "Why do not you put up your wife's photo on the screen that would look better". I was flummoxed as I had no satisfactory answer to his query. I said - "I keep changing theme photographs on my mobile and I'll surely consider your suggestion". He also advised that we should move and walk on the platform turn by turn to kill our time as continuous state of sitting brings negative thoughts in mind. I just cannot forget that gentelman for his nice behaviour and briniging humour in our convrsation on that tense day.

Very often during our journeys we meet people who leave some impression in our lives. It helps us get rid of boredom during these long waits at platforms. We may remember the incident but sometimes we tend to forget the faces connected to these incidents. So now have you changed the theme photograph on your mobile or is it still Angeline Jolie??
