Nare Park

Rajdhani Express. A Bhojpuri Love Story.

There's a script for a Bhojpuri film in this frame. In Delhi, a modern girl waiting with a heart shaped buckle on her belt, waiting with flowers. A beautiful woman crying in a village somewhere in Magadha or Mithila. And a long train ride, and sad songs connecting them.

Ghar kab aaoge?

This was a train ride for children called Dragon Express. But I wonder why the artist thought of decorating it with a story like this.

Guess what, I saw the same picture of the crying village belle behind two autorickshaws in Bangalore yesterday and was wondering where it was from.
