Spending time with oneself
At times I like to get pensive.
I just sit alone with myself. This would often happen around railway tracks (back in India).... or at beaches, lake shores, in temple premises or in the arms of the mountains.
This shot was taken during one of those pensive sessions. Back home, I was siting at the railway tracks crossing, recollecting my childhood days, where i would run from the village home and stand there.. at the very faintest sound of a train. I would then watch the train till it had completely gone out of sight. My joy knew no bounds when i did that. And I remember doing it countless times everyday.
So this guy comes and sits in front of me and doing precisely what I was doing. I looked at him, smiled and continued to go down memory lane. However his expression caught my attention. As he was just thinking about something it seems. I do not know what, I did not ask either as I wanted to let him spend time with himself.
I realise, that in our busy life schedule, we often fail to do this simple thing. Spend time with oneself. I wish everyone did that regularly.
