The green field.

While I was sitting in the train by the window, a goods train passed by. For few minutes I saw chopped images of the field on the other side. When I concentrated on the compartments I couldnt see the green field. And when I concentrated on the field I couldnt see the compartments that passed. I guess thats life, focussing on the things we want and ignoring the others.

ooooh. deep deep :D

i agree though. focus in life is very much like the lenses of a camera, we need to adjust to see everything :D

your comment under my post surprised me :D you're a fan of body shop too? kind of stereotyping but i'm glad when guys share stuff like that :D
Anu said…
Blogger should have a 'Like' button for each post :) What an analogy.. Have seen the same sight a thousand times but never looke at this way... Thanks for the perspective.

aha!! That's a nice way of looking at mundane things!!!

Vaise You reminded me of my school days!! We used to go by bus and there was a rly crossing on the way. Sometimes when a goods train used to pass we used to count the coaches!!! Now it sounds so boring, I would rather fiddle with my mobile :)
