Blue shirt, black pants, brown bag, slung across the shoulder

White, striped shirt, brown pants, handheld bag swinging with your arm

Orange kurta, white pyjama, white dupatta, red back-pack

Black jeans, bare arms, red kurta, blue dupatta ’round your neck

Blue sari, flowers in hair, crimson forehead, blue purse

Heels, ballerinas, sneakers, shoes, kholapuris of all colours

Click-Clack, Click-Clack rushing in the subway

Hopping, up and down the stairs

Streams and streams of people at the end of a work day

Thane, Vashi, Panvel, rushing to their trains

Back against the pillar, scanning the frenzy

Yellow shirt, blue jeans, there you are!
