That day I went to Narayanjang to take some photographs on rain. Even though it was not raining when the train had started from Komlapur, but I didn’t have to wait that long to see it. And when the train reached Pagla station, raindrops were falling all around like there was no end. Even in that heavy rain people were there to say good bye to their dear ones. Then I saw this young boy, who was probably there to see off his relatives. Seeing him, I opened the window, went out in the rain and took his photograph.
