My Mom was talking about a new term, which I haven’t heard till date constantly with her blogger friends. That term is called #BlogHop. So I asked my mom as to what she is talking over the phone. She explained to me that #BlogHop is similar to the #Blogtrain we did for #XploreBharat some time back. But here every one would be writing on a certain prompt and this month prompt is Outside My Window.

The moment, I heard that word, Outside My Window, two scenes came to my mind. One is my daily morning ritual of gazing out of the window from our library room. I would love to spend an eternity watching the clouds pass by and the shapes these clouds take would be so funny at times. White fluffy clouds passing on a light blue sky so majestic and always makes me wonder where they are all going? In the begining, I used to think that they are going to school and that’s why they are rushing. Now since I am learning about Earth and other planets, I am able to understand little better. But its still an awesome sight you know.

The next scene, I remembered was from the train window. When we travel to Rajahmundry through Circar Express, the train runs through the East Godavari district before reaching Rajahmundry and we get to see clean green paddy fields with small small canals of Godavari running in between them.

At times, when I am lucky, the train stops for a signal and I get to see them to heart’s content. I always ask my mom as to whether I can get down the fields and play there. But my mom says it would be all slushy and I need to grow up little more to play there, as currently I don’t like to walk on slushy roads itself. But won’t you guys agree that its a real beauty to look at for eternity. So in Godavari districts, we do get to see the beautiful green paddy fields Outside My train Window

But we have to get back to our daily life isn’t it? My aunties and friends would be waiting for me in my Montessori house so I have to rush. What about you my dear friends?

  1. Aww! It’s so wonderful that you are exploring the joys and sights of the world outside your window so early on. I agree with you, it’s fascinating to decipher the shapes of the passing clouds and sometimes they are so funny and interesting. Oh, like you, I can never get tired of watching the different scenes and terrains rushing by through the window of the train! Wishing you fascinating times as you gaze outside your window, everyday! Cheers

    1. Same goes with my kid too..after the kid is born, we lost that privilege completely

    1. Definitely, my kid loves playing with small kids, as that’s the time he gets to play the teacher or big brother role isn’t it!!! So you and Penguin are always welcome to Chennai and to my house too

  2. Would love to travel with you sitting beside train window to explore rajahmundry with you. Godavari river, paddy fields wow so much to roam about. Kids have a different and unique way to explore outside the window its always fun to see from their angle.

  3. Aw that’s such a cute take. You’ve caught your son’s voice so well. Children are masters in looking out of windows and observing the most unusual of things.

    1. Very aptly said. For them everything has a story to tell as they have more open minds to listen and enjoy when compared to us. Thanks for your encouragement

  4. Views from a train window….so interesting, the kaleidoscope of ever-changing views! I always loved watching the skies, the paddy fields, the barren terrains, the interesting stations on my train travels.

    1. Yes, very well said. All these scenes tell stories in their own way and we just have to have the eyes and ears to listen to them. Thanks for visiting

  5. That picture just melted my heart. It’s so cute that he thought clouds are going to school. The train view reminds me of my childhood, when looking out of the train window was an excitement in itself.

  6. Such an adorable post! But then that is what we have come to expect from you. Gorgeous pics and the mention of my Sasural, Rajahmundhry, made me very happy.

  7. Lovely view of paddy fields. I always used to crave for window seats when we used to travel hometown for vacation, it used to be tough competition among me and my siblings 🙂 Post made me go back to my childhood.

  8. This brought back so many memories of my childhood, when we travelled for days by train and my brothers and I would take turns for the window seat. Even to this day, I love watching out of a train window, trying to imagine what’s going on in the various places that we pass.

    1. Yes Corinne..that’s the very reason why my kid just loves to travel by trains. He doesn’t prefer bus or plane. Thanks for your encouragement

  9. Cloud watching is such a refeshing hobby. I used to make imaginary animals with the cloud shapes even when I was in college. Shrav, your post made me relive my younger days. 🙂

    1. Yes Shalini..I had very good fun and got to read a variety of blogs this time..loved most of them

  10. I love the window seat. Especially on trains. Somehow the lush green paddy fields and rivers aide in releasing the mind from turmoils and help to think clearly. It has helped so many times. Loved your musings.

  11. Life outside the window is so chirpy and calling us to do our deeds on time. Even I love to gaze out of train window and often pondered upon people who used to sit on their roofs who used to wave bye to passengers.
