A Ride on Bus in Delhi


The true nature of urban life
Full of love and strife
At one place you can feel the both
Saying the truth, taking an oath
Travelling in the bus
You will feel the joy and fuss
Life full of hustle and bustle
In the bus, you do get tussle
When you get a seat
You sit and smile
You feel the treat
Life looks simple
And surely worthwhile
When you don't get a seat
You feel the heat
Bus gets overloaded
And often crowded
Making your journey miserable
Running fast to keep pace
Use the AC bus advisable
And feel the openness of space
Urban life is not easy
Everyone is a bit busy
With friends, children and wife
The true nature of urban life
A ride on Bus in Delhi
Demonstrated it clearly

    Nice poem! I love the connection between something tangible as an everyday bus-ride and the philosophical conditions which is inspired in the process. Perhaps some of my best ideas are conceived gazing out a bus window, or squashed up in an over crowded train hahaha. (Report) Reply
