A railway station is a fascinating place. It is a human museum or a fair of human faces. Here you can find a cross-section of people. You can also see people belonging to all castes, creeds and religions. This place is full of hustle and bustle. It is accessible to the rich and poor alike. There’s always a great rush to the platforms. Everyone seems to be in a hurry either to get off the train or to get on the train. I often spend some time at the railway station. I like watching trains. I like the scene before the arrival of a train. There is growing excitement and activity. Some people are in a great hurry. Some are unhappy at the departure of their loved ones. Coolies run here and there. Vendor boys move in and out of the train. There is a lot of jostling and elbowing. After the train has left, the platform gives a deserted look.
