Weathered. He sits quietly in his ‘space’. He worked in the ‘town’ and stayed in Kalyan. The train was his life line for well neigh 30 years. His co-passangers his friends. For the myrid denizens of the far flung suberbs, the ‘train friends’ are a serious phenomenon. Same train, same compartment, same window section. Day in day out. Over years, people make friendships. People sing bhajans. People play cards. Many of these friendships continue outside the train and outside the work hours.

I tried to capture the mood. The evening time when he sits, contemplating. He is back from chores in the market and the time before dinner is served, is one of reflections, perhaps.
