Parted Ways, by Sukesh Kumar

This picture has few many interpretations for me, depending on the context. At one time, it tells me that we started together, we may be separated for some time, but then we will be together again. At some other point in life, it tells me that the world is round, and everything is connected by the other.
Few of the times, it also reminds me of my mom’s preaching that there are two paths (represented by two railroads) to success (represented by the uphill), one of them is easy and one tough. The easy (and may be wrong) roads are crowded and attractive, and the tough ones (and may be right ones) are unattractive and not so followed. Your choice at the beginning of taking these paths, decide what will your life lead to. .

    very nice capture !
    To me, the uphill at the end is the ultimate truth , you are bound to reach there, irrespective of the path taken, no matter if you like it or not.

    I agree with the interpretation …”it tells me that we started together, we may be separated for some time, but then we will be together again….”
    and…when the picture says it all…do we really need to say anything else!!!

    Very beautiful and interesting photo. It reminds me that there is always more than one path to any destination. Though this path may be right for me, another person’s unique path is equally valid.
