We will be strangers

During a one-night stay in a hotel near Kochi Railway Station, while killing mosquitoes (again) with two touring Britishers who were waiting for a delayed train.
Once upon a time, we traveled together, on the same train, towards the same destination, but we might never meet, never even know the existence of each other! Do you know why? the world is too big, traveling it or conquering it might not take you long, but connecting it will, take time, the lifetime of generations..

Flying Rhinos

The Black Rhino Range Expansion Project (BRREP), a partnership between WWF-South Africa, Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife and Eastern Cape Parks and Tourism

This picture reminds me of a Telugu song in which as part of a story, the writer wonders "emo!! Gurram egaraA vachu"... tranlsation... "who knows!! the Horse might even fly".

The story: A prisoner promises to make a horse fly in exchange for his life. On the day of the test, he says it takes 6 months to make a horse fly and requests food, accommodation and amenities for that duration. When asked by his fellow prisoner if the horse will really fly, he replies, "I was just kidding, I made up the story to postpone my death penalty. Now that it's postponed, who knows (!!), the King might change his mind, or he might (even) die, (less probable but) this prison might collapse during an earth quake, or (...), who knows, the horse might even learn to fly!!". He puts the possibility of a horse flying as the least (subtly implying it will never happen).

But, here we are,
Kings are gone,
riding horses is a mere hobby,
killing wild animals is a crime,
