• It's a unique scene. A very significant occurance. Every morning (when I say morning, I don't mean the bright and shiny morning. I'm talking about the morning that starts before the sun's out) looking at the faces in a public transport is the highlight of my day.
There, we get to see, this one of a kind unity.
A bunch of people collectively not wanting to go wherever they're going.
Some are sleeping. Those who aren't sleeping are yawning. Those who aren't yawning...well, you can see on their faces, their slept-for-3 hours-faces! .
I don't think 'morning person' is a real thing. Its a myth. Those who claim to be, are either lying or their morning starts at 9am.
These faces describe a story. The story of a real struggle that each of them face each morning. The struggle of choosing between their well deserved and required sleep or their well required money and education. They face a mental fight as soon as they wake up.
And most often lose.
Smiling faces are a rare sight in the morning. All these people, leave their hearts, souls, wishes and dreams at home. And they travel, to wherever, they do not wish to, as plain flesh. No soul, just flesh. Rushing through the day, almost forgetting the reason to be there in the first place.
It's a unique scene.
