Thoughts that come as you take a Walk: Travelling Old Style

I Admit. I love to walk. 
I get to notice all kinds of people and places when I walk than through bike riding. Intricate places, nooks and corners, sweet smells, nasty smells, loving couples, sighting guys, barking dogs, dogs wagging tails, following dogs, dead ends, good roads, bad roads, worst roads, churches, temples, Buses, Places, Hospitals, Parks.
But that’s not why I walk. 
It all started on a day; A day in which I was frustrated. I don’t remember the strangeness of thought I had at that time. All that echoes back in my mind now was that, I was having my lunch alone in a hotel and I was angry about something.

I love the interview scene from 3 Idiots (or it's Tamil Remake Nanban)

This (in the video) is what I call real Emotion. No fabrications, no feverish yucky sentiments; he speaks to the essence of what he believes within.
