The Train

The Train:

I love waiting for the train to come,
I love watching the train enter the crowded platform casually whistling its way,
I love watching people getting board amid the noise,
I love helping people to get their seat,
I love exchanging my berth’s for others comfort.
In short train teaches me to be flexible and patient with others.

I love the sound of the train, its kinda in a regular pattern,
I love the rattle of sound it creates while it crosses a sleeper below,
I love the sound when it switches to other track,
I love the sound of hustle which is created by a crossing train in a high speed.
In short train teaches me there is a rhythm in life, and tells me “find your rhythm dude”.

I love the tea which they sell in the train, which is a pure pleasure while sipping.
I love the food we get in the train.
I love the pantry car in the long distances train.
I love watching people travelling in the train,
I love watching people finding peace in travelling as they are out of their complex lives.
In short the train teaches me to find out the pleasure in life, it may be even in small things
like sipping a tea, a smile, a chat with a stranger, sharing food with someone.

I love keeping my head on window and see the world whizzing away,
even at the same time I can see new land or world coming up…
I love hanging at the door, feeling the breeze,
watchin the whole world pass in a glimpse.
I love train passing each city telling me bout the city details and tells me
“Hey Moish, this city has beautiful history and in ruins now”..
In short train teaches me to hope for the best and learn from the past.

I love watching the train crossing the rivers,
I love train tearing down town mountains via tunnels,
I love watching the train racing with other vehicles in a parallel road,
I love watching the train going through mountains which comes in way,
I love the stopping of the train at a red signal, waiting to turn green, to proceed further,

Another thing I learnt from the train, things come and go,
things make us to stop, things defeat us until we are grounded,
things make us to wait, things take our time, things divide us from our loved ones,
But the train says, never look back Moish, keep moving n keep doing well bro…

Hey Vin, I have accepted the past and moving further with my life trying to realize my dreams.

I love waiting for my station to come so that I can meet my loved one at the station
and get a ROCKSTAR hug…


Watch out.. Its red signal..
Watch out.. Its red signal..
In the door... Train Length...
In the door... Train Length...

    Wah Wah Wah…

    Kabhi na dekha… jamaal ka yeh andaaz (Wah wah bolo padne walo kamino!)
    Kabhi na socha bhi … ke jamaal ka hain aisa andaaz ….

    Ke naseem ke jaise chale unke kalam
    Kare rab tum par hamesha karam….(Kya baat hain, kya baat hain)

    Nice one mohshyaaa…

    It took me back to college days when we used to travel between Bagalkot n Gadag on meter guage.. We used to sit @ the door space n used to wait for Guledgudda station to get some snacks.. :)’

    Cheers dude… keep rocking…

    Dude! This is good!
    It represents a full circle in your writing career:)
    Its well presented and structured. Same time it has got your signature simplicity and from the heart attitude.It shows how your thinking about what you write has changed….you have used the visual and auditory cues very well it makes it easy for anyone to imagine the scene.. and its such a common scene… as most ve expressed here it makes people think (those who usually don’t think;))
    I’ve travelled a lot by train all my life and I can connect to this.. Because this is open, anyone can connect to this and be a part of the spirit this conveys.. Its much better than writing abt ur parties.. not that they were not good;)
    For us the major station used to be Guntakal.. train used to stop there a lot and i used to enjoy there a lot. Even though i’ve mostly travelled with family travelling alone has a charm of its own and its lovely! After coming to Mangalore had reduced train journeys by lot but now im back to trains again it feels good!
    Good work dude keep it up!!

    Dude! Nice to see that u wrote another poem:) wel glad that after singing out ur previous poem as a song u got inspired to write one more… actually when i read this poem i was so surprised that u were able to write a poem on the simplest n most common topics!! i mean we usually never attempt to write a poem on a topic of things which we use in day to day life ! But u did a great job! The best part in ur poem is that u write about things that people can relate to …. unlike many great poems that we cant make head and tail of!! we would even need a dictionary to decipher such poems!! That spoils the fun of reading the poem! But thats not the case with ur poems!Ur poem was so descriptive that i felt as if i was the one sitting inside the train n experiencing travelling!!Keep up the good work dude! On the flip side i did find a tad bit of grammar errors though its forgiven:)And the repeated use of the phrases in the beginning of each line had a beauty of its own though at times it felt a little bit monotonous..But the poem as such is very beautiful n im sure all would wait for ur next poem:)Kudos to u!

  16. Awesome stuff, straight from d heart(don’t tell just random lines)… Indian railways is in ur DNA 🙂
    Would like to add some lines:

    I Love to watch children making noise, running through each n every compartment,
    I Love watching people playing cards,
    I Love to see hawkers entering my compartment at every station,
    I Love trying the new taste of each place,
    I Love to get down before it stops and love to catch when it is running,
    I Love stepping down at every station, exploring it…
    IN short the train reminds me how beautiful this world is, how colorful life is….

    1. Hi Alpana,

      Thanks for the following. Well yeah, it came up pretty well. Was travelling in train, later got the idea, wrote it in mobile, later finalized it at home.

      Sure, your lines also will add, will modify the poem again and these. Went through “The Train” again, found out many mistakes, I can be better more, will update that also with your lines.
