Trainstorm is a collection of poems from poets all over the world. The book was created with the concept that there is no actual real train but there is a train running continuously and surreptitiously within. This is the train of encountering our first love and thereafter many loves. This is a train, a poet feels but can express in images and not in words. This is the train of the Trainman in Matrix who tells Neo, here in the train station, he is the God. Trainstorm is this revolution, I have tried to create, a reason is perhaps an extinct word. There is a storm approaching much like the Chambal storms at Gwalior. We continue to live in such Trainstorms.
