Inspired by an original photo 
composed and shot by Akshara Kulkarni

Let us rest a while,
Breathe in a bit
Let our tongues hang,
So we reboot again!
We truly carry
More than our weight,
As we reach the bearer,
From start until end.
We’ve made friends,
With tar and concrete,
Rubbed heels with grass,
Unearthed souvenirs of muck & dirt.
And puddles of rainwater,
Have quenched our thirst.
Those brick laid steps
Told us ancient tales
Which keep us company
As we recoup our heft.
Our anthem remains,
Right Left-right-left,
We serve to please.
Till alas we get booted
By the newest of our kin!
