A Railway Accident

I was traveling from Patna to Delhi on the Patliputra express. It is a night train. There were many people in the compartment

It was a dark but calm night. The stars twinkled in the sky. The train was running at a high speed. Some of the passengers were sleeping.

Others were dozing and occasionally opened their eyes. I was awake.

Suddenly I experienced a massive jerk. There was a deafening roar. The passengers were thrown against the walls of their compartments. The luggage kept on the overhead racks came tumbling down. Many people were trapped under it.

It appeared that our train was involved in a head-on collision Cries and shrieks could be heard from every quarter. There was total confusion. There were no lights anywhere. It was totally dark.

Those who were unhurt got out of their compartments. Luckily I was also unhurt. On coming out we found that the first three bogies of the train were completely smashed. The engine lay toppled to one side

Nearly all the passengers of the first three bogies were crushed to death. Some lay seriously wounded, while others were buried under the debris. There was nobody to help them.

The morning sun revealed a grim and tragic sight. A small baby was crying for his mother. He was fortunate that his mother had survived the crash and crawled over the pieces of luggage to pick him up. Others were not so lucky. They had succumbed to their injuries. The body of the engine driver was beyond recognition. He had died trying to save the train from the collision. His last act was to apply the emergency breaks. It was because of this act that the passengers of the last six bogies had remained unhurt.

The ambulances arrived. With it came the medical aid and volunteers. They began removing the dead and the wounded to the nearby hospital. The sight of so much death and destruction was very heartrending,

Inquiries revealed that the accident had occurred due to the carelessness of the pointsman. He had given line clear, even when the goods train stood in the yard. His carelessness had cost many people their lives and had resulted in damage worth millions of Rupees.
