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. It was great this time of the year. Thanks for dropping by

      1. What ? Did you hear that Hindi Song, “Rail Gaadi, Rail Gaadi”. By Kishore Kumar. Its so beautiful.

      2. I am a big Kishore da fan ., ek raasta hai jindagi – kishore da, the blog derives its name from the song

      3. Ever Green Meaningful Songs, never die out.

      4. Yes, see Bob Dylan got the award …
