There is an adage that nothing is outside the domain of a poet.  It is only time and the context that channelizes his/her creative energies. I think the same is  equally true for  a blogger.

When I see the top bloggers in  tech genre,  my heart prompts  to  advise them to take a holiday for a while  and write  a different post for novelty. I know that  they feel it as a bad idea, but I swear it not !

The other day when I completed 186 articles in  my blog,  I felt  dried up to churn out new stories.

Immediately I found an answer in railway stations.  The context came handy as one of my close friends was about to  catch a train and I went  along with him to railway station to see him off.

In fact, the railway station and train symbolize our  own journey of life.  The railway station is like a world around us and the train is like  ourselves.   We start our journey  at one point  and  must terminate at other end.

Whenever, I visit railway stations, I come back productively and I get enough insights to  churn out new stories. In my childhood days, whenever I get bored,  I used to visit nearest railway station which cheers up my mood  dreaming  that one day I would take my long journey on train and see the whole world.

Much after childhood years, when I entered into government service,   my charm for railway station and train  did not diminish and I continue to enjoy them.   Apart from tons of  happiness,  I used to get  the best books at  railway stations.  Many of  great books  in my personal library were bought from railway station stalls only.   If you want to know the talk of the town  book,  better  go to  the nearest railway station and you  come to know the pulse of the public.

Some times,  my visit to railway stations brings out the pent up emotions  like the  last visit  when my eyes welled up with emotion after seeing the agony of distressed parents of  a mentally challenged  child when she fell flat on the platform.

Whether you are in sad or happy mood,  life doesn't stops like a passing train  in the middle of its journey!
