There is something really special about Indian train journeys. With the railway cutlet, the dip-dip tea, and that tomato soup, train journeys assure you a pocketful of memories every single time. And so, someone decided to dedicate an entire Instagram project towards capturing some of these – especially the most special ones.
The unique crowd-sourced project has some gorgeous photos that highlight the beauty of train journeys, through window seats. Talking to Huffington Post, filmmaker and the account’s founder Shanu Babar said:
“The Window Seat Project is all about travelling in trains and asking people what kind of India do they see when they look out from the window seat!”
From crisscrossing train tracks to a cup of train chai, these beautiful pictures will make you want to go on a train journey right this instant.
A report claims that the project began in 2015 as part of his postgraduate dissertation at the Symbiosis Institute of Communication in Pune. From uploading 10-15 second snippets of their journey on Instagram and Facebook to crowd-sourcing user pictures and uploading them with the hashtag #TheWindowSeatProject, the pictures are beautiful.
