"To see the tail of a train
we should always wait for the curves."
Father told me this when i was a child.
But my mother never allowed me to do so.
She said "whenever the curves come,
close your eyes and pray"
So i never had the courage
to peep at the tail of a train.
When i started travelling alone
i could only think about bogies and tickets.
whenever a train takes the curve
i am old enough to know it.
Because i am grown enough
I stopped praying and start peeping.
i tried a million times or more
and wondered why it was not seen.
Three months back i became a father
and was enlightened by three truths.
I was never in the engine room
as i always dreamed and believed
My parents always knew my coach number
but never told me because of the love that only parents can sense.
Because of the bogie in which i am sitting
I will never be able to see the tail of the train !!
