30 years from now

we will run out of coal perhaps..i thermal power plants will be shutdown..or maybe in view of new technologies n higher efficiency such old plants will be abandoned...or their useful life will be over

then what will happen to all these arrays of control systems and log books....books that are now filled everyday...control rooms where people rush in every morning...and operation guys keep vigil in silent rainy nights....

we will suck every penny out of them...and leave them one day..when their usefulness is over....
30 years from now....the rooms stare back at me.during night shifts...silent lonely..orderly arranged....and constantly working...

my mind wanders mind wanders
at the periphery of infinity
restless at the silence of cosmos
trembling at a glimpse of the ocean of time

(the photographs are pathetic...the post is based on a feeling)
