Nilgiri Mountain Railway


I wish to be a kid again

Wish for a day when

I feel like blowing bubbles

Just for the sheer joy of seeing them

Float into the sky

Carrying my dream towards the heaven

Little colored bundles of joy


Note: Clicked this one during the ooty toy train ride

  1. We will always remember that Ooty Toy Train ride.
    Nowadays in Mumbai Malls, they have started these Toy trains or Buses, where for a Fee, you can sit in them and it takes you, round the entire floor of the Mall. Only thing is that, they do not allow adults to sit it, except if with Baby.

      1. You’re welcome for the follow back .. I suspect you have confused me with another blogger.. I’ve not posted on Varanasi.. haha – no problem though. Enjoy the rest of your day! x

  2. That’s such a cute darling in there, she looks adorable… great shot Abhinav!! An IITian can capture this beauty and link with touchy poetry? That’s superb to know ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. My only dilemman is what does this got to do with the mountain railway?
    I think your poem is awesome! There’s a real sweet childish element to it.
    Love the bubbles to heaven couplet!
