Yes, there is actually an Indian Railways train underneath all these people! If you look carefully, you can see its blue body on the right hand side of the picture.
Of course, you’re probably wondering what all these people are doing. They’re trying to board the crowded train to go to a Guru Purnima festival that’s happening near Mathura.
Today is Guru Purnima in India — the day when spiritual gurus are acknowledged and respected. However, the idea behind Guru Purnima extends further than that. It’s also a day for giving thanks to anyone who’s taught you lessons in life.
If you wish, simply spend some time reviewing all the knowledge you’ve acquired in the last year and the way it’s transformed you. You may be surprised with the outcome because everybody is a teacher to at least somebody, even without necessarily intending to be!
