Spicy Rasam

Not a cooking or food blog! I just share what's cooking in my mind.

The big moving metal boxes..

With its wheels screeching, moving and screeching..

It moves about.. moves about… moves about… moves about…

The crowded stations await the trains..

To a city of millions, it is like the veins…

They board it…they need to go places.

mumbai local

There is less space.. very less space..

They hug their purses, hold on to their wallets,

They get ready to travel… they need to go places…

 

With its wheels screeching, moving and screeching..

It moves about.. moves about… moves about… moves about…

 

It’s the Mumbai Local…

The locomotive of the city’s locals…

Rich one, poor one, abled and differently abled…

All in a box… a big metal box.

The train moves along,

Without the traffic,

Without the havoc,

Without the blaring horns,

Without the sooty smoke,

With its wheels screeching, moving and screeching..

It moves about.. moves about… moves about… moves about…

It’s the Mumbai Local…

The locomotive of the city’s locals…

    Made a big mistake trying to catch a train from Mumbai at 5pm on a Friday evening. Long time ago but still fond memories. 🙂
