Life is like a ........... Train journey?

Was wondering, if life is akin to a train journey...umm, lets see......

We start off from a particular station, called home, equipped to the best of our ability, with the aim of reaching our destination. During this journey,  we meet many people while on the train. Some of them start with us, and accompany us till the end..they are our family... some others we meet on the journey, but who accompany us till the end.. they are our true friends, our friends for life.. and some others are there with us only or a short while, but do leave their impact on us..they are the innumerable people we meet each day, everyday.. 

The train stops at several stations.. life also has many stops after which a new phases begins...these stops help us relax and refresh ourself.. the short stops at the station also indicates that everything in life is momentary... nothing lasts forever, and change is inevitable.. any sorrow/pain/loss is only temporary, and will enentually pass.... 

we may find a very special person on one of the stations, but he/she may not be able to accompany us, however much we wish to, coz' we are on different trains, and have different destinations to, one has to move on in life.. .... however, you do have control over its pace.. you have  the power to increase or decrease its speed as per your wishes..

It may so happen that other trains may overtake you.. but u must remember that you will also reach your destination, though a bit late :)

Jeevan to gadi hai, isko to chalna hai
Raahon mein station to aate hain jaate hain
Gum tera station hai, isko to jaana hai
Chalta chal khushiyon ka bi station aana hai..............

The Perfect Analogy

Have you ever noticed little drops of water along a sloping ground.? If you have, you must have seen that initially, all of them are almost of the same size. Individually, none of them can reach the drain (their destination). But, eventually, these little drops of water get together, (as we are on a sloping ground) and form a bigger droplet. And then these bigger droplets join their counterparts to grow even bigger,...and eventually they reach where they want to, i.e., the drain. BUT, in the process, as the droplets increase in size, they leave behind some of their part.  

While observing this, it struck me, that their strategy of reaching their destination so comparabe to the methodology adopted by humans. We also meet so many people in life, get together, take each others help, use, abuse and exploit each other (!) ,  in reaching our goals. We cant reach our destination all by ourself. AND, in the process, we leave behind some of those people who helped us reach where we are today; probably because we feel that they are no longer useful to us, or they have grown old, or have stopped performing, or have become outdated. And eventually we feel that its better to leave them,and move ahead.................... as we dont want our growth to be stunted because of them. 
But, we should never forget what their contribution was, in getting us here today. 
Each and every person you meet, leaves an impact in your life, and has a role in getting you where you are. Even if one of them were missing, you wouldnt have been where you are today. Do acknowledge the presence of people if your life. Don't take anyone for granted. The loss of losing them, maybe more than what you expect.
