In the train, on the street, all around me – i see people with their headphones or earbuds on or looking down at their phones or watching a movie etc. To me, they are missing the beauty and endless wonder of the world around them. They would rather be in their own “pods” isolated from the world. But I rather enjoy looking around, listening to the sounds and watching the sites around me. There is always something interesting, something thought provoking going on – and here i write about a few such stories of my experience of the world around me.
