A Scene at A Railway Station

My father and my elder sister were going to Kanpur the other day to attend the marriage party of my cousin brother. I went to the railway station to see them off. It was a pleasing sight at the railway station.

Many taxis, cars, scooters, rickshaws and tongas were parked outside the waiting hall. The waiting hall was full of passengers. There was a long queue of people at booking window. People were buying their tickets one by one. The coolies were busy. They were carrying the luggage of the people to the platform or from platform to outside. My father bought a platform ticket for me. He hired a coolie to carry our luggage. We reached the platform from where the train was to depart.

The railway platform was a world in itself. The old and the young, the rich and poor, educated or illiterate were there. belonging to different communities as some were Hindus, some were Muslims, some were Sikhs, still others were foreigners. They all had one aim that was waiting for the train. Some talked of business, other politics, still others of courts, colleges, etc. but the arrival of train haunted the mind of all. The only subject that interested everyone was the time of the arrival of the train.

The platform presented a fascinating look with shining bags, huge bundles and dirty trunks. Ladies sat on their luggage. Some people were sitting on the benches. Some were standing with cigarettes in hand and some were moving here and there waiting for the train to steam in. Some people were standing at the bookstalls and were busy reading magazines and newspapers. The whole atmosphere was full of noises, voices or cries of children. Above all were, the voices of hawkers, who hawk their goods shouting at the top of their voices as if by force of habit.

There was a lot of noise when the train arrived. Everyone moved briskly. The whole scene looked to be that of a battlefield. Some were searching for their compartment and seats and others who had not got the seats reserved were rushing here and there in search of unreserved compartment. After ten minutes the guard whistled and moved a green flag. The engine whistled. As the train was to depart, I came down from the compartment. On platform a large number of people were there who had come to see off their relatives or some family members. Most of them were standing with folded hands.

After the train had started, I came out of the platform. I hired a taxi and came back home.
