The Train Journey

The train journey reflects upon us thoughts which we tend to brush aside amidst the daily chaos.

The lush green fields often seen only in train journeys by city dwellers reflect upon us the prosperity gifted to us by all around like mother earth who inspite of being tortured by mankind gives him the gift of prosperity and thus teaching us to be thankful to the people around.

The momentous hills and the deep rivers cossed with ease in a journey reflects upon us that hurdles small and big would keep coming in our life not to pull us down but to make us realize that we have the power to conqour all hurdles and that we must keep moving crossing all the hurdels coming our way with ease .

The burned log in a remote farm is a symbol of destroying the waste and hoping for a fertile tomorow , reflecting upon us that we need to bury our past in a hope for better tommorow .It tells us we need to tolerate the occasional darkness of soot and heat of fire for shaping a better tommorow .

The kids dancing in joy at a mere sight of a moving train reflects upon us that we need to find happiness amidst the simplicity of our daily life and not in the monetary value of materialistic things.

The poor family sitting in a dirty corner of a busy station may be having their only meal for that day yet enjoying eavery bite with a peaceful smile.The scene questions us, if they can be happy and content then why can 't we?

The old couple travelling in great discomfort yet looking after each others small needs reflects upon us an eternal beautiful love story which is not as rosy as a cinema, but is about selfless love , about saying, "i love you" without uttering a single word after all its about spending an entire lifetime with each other.

It is but the last station, where the train finally stops after a long journey reflecting upon us that we must keep going, We must pursue our dreams till we reach our destination, our goal. We must overcome the occasional hurdles, we must also stop in between to rejunivate however we should never give up till we accomplish our dreams and are at peace with ambition .
