    Lucky passengers! Are they? Can the Driver find out Satan's wait before the Green light burns? So many questions arise..........Truly a great poem; a poem that makes the readers think and gives rise to so many questions and end-options....This is what Ershad Muzamdar calls as a great poem.....

    wonder why death has to be so dramatic sometimes...accidents and natural calamities
    make us question god...in this case after deputing satan god seems to have changed his mind...a story well told in just a few lines...great craft sir..10

    Inadvertently, a devastation by devil avoided
    Haven’t we come across many such occasions? ?
    Your presentation of such a graceful incident
    Took my heart away to a land of intrepid, by fate.

    Let me by virtue of being a technocrat
    Mention a wit with which I compare
    SATAN – in computer terms…
    Security Administrator Tool for Analyzing Networks
    Not a devil…but
    Driver like the one in your poem
    May fail his intensions…and
    Network will fail… for sure....; -))

    at the end of every tunnel,
    there is light......
    the green light of nature...
    let her win...
    you do that through this poem...............

    nirdai lakh chahe to kya hota hai, hota wohi hai jo manjure khuda hota hai. now Kesav, i dont know whether i quote correctly, but that's what i infer from your poem- metaphorical, wonderful vivid imagery to drive your point home.

    I guess satan did not win. I believe, though Master's green did not appear, still the emergecy brakes stopped the train with no harm done.
