Dec 03 2017 (18:55) A quaint little station with some old timers discussing life The sun setting behind the hill and the unused PF providing them a retreat from the usual humdrum The newly painted walls are like a border not allowing anything encroach the PF But the wild white flowers stealthily creeping over the wall slowlyyyyyyy inching onto the PF like frothing foam flowing down the walls onto the bench and slowly inching towards the tracks It’s like the nature telling us, you may destroy us and build concrete jungles and stop us with your artificial barriers but we will eventually reclaim our space One day all this will be gone and we will reclaim it all…………… SomemagicalflowersbloomingtowardstheendofPFlookingliketransparentreceptacles…capturingthesunlightandreflectingitbackforalltoseetheorangehue Finally the flower show is brought to an end by the abrupt ending of the PF and a flyover cutting right across the tracks, bringing me back from my reverie These little stations with beautifully colored benches with white boundaries evoking sharp contrast Bringing back memories of R K Narayan’s description of little wayside stations of the yore with a Station Master and a porter, where just a few trains stop Just some yellowed forms to fill and some ledgers apart from waving the passing trains The few passengers halting brings the station into a frenzied activity for a few minutes Then everything settles down to a life of monotony Thanks for reading my halcyon thoughts :)
