A Train Journey

The glimmering lights and yellow of the moon, 

The passing by huts and buildings, 

The discussions on hot topics of politics: 

Where each agreed on “I am BJP, you are Congress”, 

The adjusting of the suitcase and bags with others’, 

Similar to adjustment of a new baby in the world; 

Where one hand becomes two, 

And one idea becomes a concept, 

Where can you see such unity, if not in a train? 

The quietness of solidarity, 

Shared seats, food, and all lights turned off; 

Some in sound and few in alert sleep, 

Ignorant to the next berth’s snoring; 

Where can you see such unity, if not in a train?
