These vehicles running on the highway
look like miniature toys
or parts of a video game
that is playing outside the metro
as I see in front of me.

They look like working models,
one of those given as projects
to be submitted
in schools and engineering colleges.

It looks like modern games.
These vehicles running to reach their destinations
yet they seem to be running without aims.
They look like the replacements
of the traditional kathputlis.

I don’t know whose project is this that is being working since centuries
with its own rules and its own laws
but it is surely an order full of flaws.

Self-played
