big city blues

I have never been to Essel World. But then I travel everyday by the locals.

If you want to be hit by life I suggest you stand at the centre of the big, yellow bridge at Dadar station.

A consistently growing crowd will walk towards you here, with a menacing look. The intent is to gleefully bulldoze anyone who may be in the way. This is when you turn and run to save your sorry existence.

Mobs also threatens to walk over you at Thane (my sweet village). Only here the commuters are not as vibrant or filled with joie de vivre. It may seem instead, that a thousand problems are approaching you, dressed as people. I think the dementor concept was born on the author’s trip to where I’m at.

A side thought- if the Roy family named their son Joy, he’d be called Joy Roy. I like names that rhyme.

    walking on the dadar bridge feels like swimming in clothed flesh. i mostly just stand and look around aghast. its bloody awesome.

    and the crowd’s not just walking towards you, the best is when you’re right in the middle and the people on your right walk towards you and those on the left away from you. clockwise. and another awesome visual is when you’re on the center of a platform and the same happens with trains instead of people. stuns you the first time you see it.
